To My Best Friend That Turned Into My Sister

To My Best Friend That Turned Into My Sister

Bestest friends forever.

Thank you for sticking with me through thick and thin, for creating so many unforgettable memories, and for being my best friend all these years. We've seen each other grow into the adults we are. It only seems like yesterday we were jumping on your trampoline all summer long in your backyard when we were little preteens.

I was 11 and you were 12 when we met. I first moved into my new house a couple behind yours. My mom ended up making us hang out and we clicked immediately. We've been through so much, from sitting in your living room playing Wii Resort all day, to making Campbell's Chunky chicken noodle soup every time we hung out, that soon turned into to shopping sprees, sleepovers, and arguments about our boyfriends. We've been through it all.

We've also overcome some pretty life-changing things as individuals but helped each other through them. We've entered high school together, been through breakups, then graduating high school, entering college and so much more. Although you went to middle and high school (for 2 years) in a different city, we always managed to see each other when you'd come back up to your dad's house. Although we're used to distance, and I'm now an hour and a half away from you, just know that I'm still always just a text or call away.

It's crazy because we can go for weeks without talking to each other, to texting each other something small and acting like nothing has changed. I truly appreciate and love you with all that I have. You have grown me into who I am today and I am so thankful for that.

So, with all of that being said, thank you again. I've always been able to count on you for anything, I've always been able to tell you anything without judging me, thank you for showing me some things that some people never have. You'll always be my all-time best friend and no matter what, I can always count on you for anything. Thank you for showing me what true friendship really is. I love you, girl. See you soon.

10 Things Someone Who Grew Up In A Private School Knows

The 10 things that every private school-goer knows all too well.


1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten

Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.

Sharing Your Location And 9 Other Things You And Your College Best Friends Do

Because who else is gonna bring you coffee at 2 AM?


While college is primarily a time for furthering your education, it is also a time for people to grow and learn more about themselves than ever before.

One huge aspect of learning who you are is learning who your best friends are in college as well. While most college besties do the norm of grabbing lunch every day or studying together, these are some of the aspects of a college friendship most know all too well.

1. Sharing your location, so no one gets stuck in a random frat boys house after a party.


2. Have a mutual crying sesh in the library.


3. Copying off each others homework because one of you forgot to do it.


4. Sharing secrets you wouldn't even tell your best friends back home.


5. Sleepovers are a routine.


6. You wear more of their closet than your own.


7. You carry one person home every weekend after a party.


8. You make extravagant spring break plans.


9. You never get tired of them (most of the time).


10. They stay by your side no matter what.


So whether it be partying together or simply crying mid-study sesh, these are signs you have met not only a college acquaintance but a friend for life.
