To My Best Friend Who is a Guy

Guys and girls can be best friends

Hey best friend who happens to be a different gender than me. I love that we can still be best friends although we are of opposite genders. Most people are confused or think that there is something going on where we may actually be more than friends but jokes on them we are just friends like all of me and my friends who are girls. This is not to just one I have more than one guy friend and the crazy thing is, is that they are all still extremely close to me and we find a way to make it work through our differences. Yes, with some there has been an issue of possibly leading to more but some how we have made it passed that and stayed friends.

A lot of people say that girls and guys cannot be friends and I think a lot of people listen to that and probably missed out on their best friend the thing is why? Why is it not questioned if a girl is hanging out with another girl are only men and women the only ones that can be attracted to each other? Now that is part of another topic for another day but still the fact that people choose not to be close friends with guys on account of they aren't supposed to be seems dumb. A lot of girls and guys are friends of course you have class together you've grown up on the same street but why can't that friend help you like your girl friends help you? Why can't we be close to guys, cry in front of them, talk about relationship issues, and family problems? I would say I have three extremely close guy friends who know sometimes more than some of my friends who are girls and yes there have been times that me and my best friend (guy) thought about being more but even after that did not work out we are still extremely close. Yes it can be hard and awkward and sometimes it won't work out that you can stay friends but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try.

Usually they are extremely helpful, they can help you carry heavy things, they can give you advice from a male perspective (always helpful with guys you are interested in) and they are really good huggers. My guy friends are way better with guy advice than any of my girl friends, it is usually because they are actually guys and they know what it's like to have a girl try to talk to them and they know what works and what really does not!

So before you distance yourself from a guy who could be your best friend give it a shot may be the best decision you make!

A Letter To My Go-To Aunt

Happiness is having the best aunt in the world.

I know I don't say it enough, so let me start off by saying thank you.

You'll never understand how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life. You'll also never understand how special you are to me and how much I love you.

I can't thank you enough for countless days and nights at your house venting, and never being too busy when I need you. Thank you for the shopping days and always helping me find the best deals on the cutest clothes. For all the appointments I didn't want to go to by myself. Thank you for making two prom days and a graduation party days I could never forget. Thank you for being overprotective when it comes to the men in my life.

Most importantly, thank you for being my support system throughout the numerous highs and lows my life has brought me. Thank you for being honest even when it isn't what I want to hear. Thank you for always keeping my feet on the ground and keeping me sane when I feel like freaking out. Thank you for always supporting whatever dream I choose to chase that day. Thank you for being a second mom. Thank you for bringing me into your family and treating me like one of your own, for making me feel special because you do not have an obligation to spend time with me.

You've been my hero and role model from the time you came into my life. You don't know how to say no when family comes to you for help. You're understanding, kind, fun, full of life and you have the biggest heart. However, you're honest and strong and sometimes a little intimidating. No matter what will always have a special place in my heart.

There is no possible way to ever thank you for every thing you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Thank you for being you.

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
