To My Best Friend That Just Graduated College
Amber Angstadt
"If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile...but anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me."
- Unknown.

Hey you, my little college graduate!

I can't believe you did it, you graduated college. You get to move onto the next big chapter in your life. I miss you a bunch already, but that's not why I'm writing you this letter. I'm writing you to wish you all the luck in the world and remind you of why I'll always be here for you, no matter how far. Let's reminisce for a moment: remember when we met? At your townhouse when I was introduced to you, and you thought I was mean because I didn't talk at all, but in reality I was just shy. That story still makes me laugh.

Remember all the lunches we had together? All the funny videos we've taken of each other and all our jokes. Oh, and how I love your family and I'm "going to marry your brother." Your "ghetto, crayon box smelling" bug? Your "ghetto fab" bedroom? I don't think I've ever had a friend like you, and I can't thank whoever is up there enough for bringing you into my life.

I miss going to Hummel's and staying up late even though we both had to get up early. I miss going to breakfast just for omelets. I miss sleepovers in your room by pushing the couches together and making a huge bed. Heck, I even miss taking care of your completely intoxicated self.

I like that we have so much in common like watching cartoons, listening to country music, and coloring. There's so much more than that. I'm still in shock that you're not going to be on campus next year. It breaks my heart. I'll always be here for you, no matter what time, what day, what month, or year. I'll always be just a text, phone call, or drive away. I mean, you are going to be my maid of honor, and the godmother to my children. We're supposed to grow old and drink cheap wine while we talk crap about people we used to hate.

We're supposed to go to baseball games and try to talk to the players, but get ignored. And then force you to get out of the car and make the hot one sign my phone case. Plus, I promise not to kill you in any car accidents (only bruise your knees).

I love you and I miss you more than words can describe. I wish you all the best of luck on your next chapter in life at HACC. And hey, maybe one day you'll be cleaning my teeth.

Love, Your Best Friend, the baby still in college.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
