Being thankful for friendships

My Friends Are Some Of The Best People In My Life And I Can't Thank Them Enough

I'm sorry, I will never stop saying how much I love my friends.


Disclaimer: I am 100% a big mush when it comes to my friends and how much they mean to me.

I just came out this way. With that being said, when you have the friends that I do it is hard not to go off on a tangent about them. In my years I have met a lot of people and they have all impacted me in a number of ways. Of course, as the years went on, friendships faded, bonds broke, and people just grew apart. Nonetheless, I appreciate any and everyone who has stepped foot in my life even if it was just for a minute.

These past few months have been rather rough for me for a number of reasons. Many times I sat up in my room in tears just overwhelmed by the recent events that have occurred in my life. My heart felt heavy and actually brought me physical pain. I chose not to speak much of what was going on outside of the few walls that I live in.

But somehow, without even knowing it, my friends seemed to make it all better. They made me smile when I couldn't smile on my own. They made me laugh until it hurt and they made my heart not ache anymore. The best part about all of that is they didn't even know they were doing it. They hardly had any idea the bags that I was carrying. They were just there for me to be there for me, and they just made me laugh for the sake of laughing. We talked all night long about absolutely nothing and it was some of the best moments I've had.

If anyone ever tells you it's not about the little things, they're lying to you.

It's the moments when your friends sleep on the couch so you can sleep in the bed and wake up at the crack of dawn to take you to your workouts. The moments when you get the "come outside I wanna talk" text and then you spend the next two and a half hours talking and laughing until you cried. The times when they that come lay with you just to keep you company. The smiles that they flash you and those extra long squeezes they give you when they see you. That exciting feeling you get when you see them and all the things in between.

It's more than just the time you spend with them or how long you've been friends. Time has no true place in friendships. True friends like the ones that I've found don't care about time or place. It is all about the moments and the memories you create and because of that I will forever be grateful.

20 'Thank Yous' My Best Friends Need To Hear BEFORE The Semester Ends

Because I don't thank you enough.


When I decided to graduate a year early, I never thought about how hard it would be to say goodbye. The best part of my three-year journey at Florida State was the friends that I had made. The friends you meet in college are the friends you will never forget. Although in two weeks we will be miles apart, this is not the end of us-- this is a different type of forever. At this point, all I can say is thank you for making my time here unforgettable. Thank you:

1. For buying me Ice Cream when I had a bad day.

2. For pushing me out of my comfort zone. 

3. For teaching me the right way to do Happy Hour. 

4. For complimenting me when I wore that tight dress.

5. For forcing me to go to the library with you.

6. For *trying* to make me go to the gym.

7. For giving me great advice that you know I won't follow. 

8. For letting me borrow your new shirt even though you haven't even worn it yet.

9. For forgiving me when I get a little sassy.

10. For telling me I can do better. 

11. For reading my shitty articles. 

12. For ignoring my absolutely terrible singing. 

13. For laughing at my jokes. 

14. For roasting me in the group chat. 

15. For driving me to class when I was too lazy to find parking. 

16. For picking me up from class when I was too lazy to walk back home.

17. For lending me money because I really REALLY needed that extra guacamole.

18. For tolerating my annoying self after your stressful day.

19. For staying up late because I didn't want to watch the scary movie alone.

20. For being the best friends I ever had.

An Open Letter To The Friend Who Continues To Save My Life

No one knows me like you do.


From the day we became friends, we have always had nothing but support for one another. Although we have only really been friends for about seven years now, I feel as if you have always been a part of my life. You know me just as well as you know yourself, and I understand you in the same way I understand my own thoughts and feelings.

You have never made me feel pressured, insecure, or unappreciated. The mutual respect we have for one another is unmatched. We can talk to each other about anything; from some of the most trivial topics to entire life philosophies. We have grown and matured together, and I couldn't be more proud of the person you are today.

We don't always agree on everything, and I always appreciate your fresh point of view, but I have never felt more in sync with another person than I do with you. We share the same birth month, the same age, the same home town, the same anxieties, and many of the same attitudes and values.

I feel as if you know exactly when I want to be alone and when I need company. Since we are both introverted, we understand that the other person needs time to recharge. And when I'm sitting alone with nothing to do, I always get a text from you asking to hang out.

In some of my loneliest, most vulnerable moments, you have been there. When I question how many true friends I really have, you are always sure to make your love for me known.

Through high school, and now college, we have experienced so many life-changing events together. Some that have taught us extremely valuable lessons, and others that have shown us incredible pain and how to grow from our lowest moments.

I want to thank you for showing me what life-long friendship looks like. Thank you for always understanding me and never putting too much pressure on me. I see an incredible future for both of us no matter where each of our lives takes us.

We will always share a unique connection that cannot be separated by any distance. But, for now, I'm glad you're only one text or phone call away.
