To The Friends Who Never Left

Thank you.

To The Friends Who Never Left

To Those Who Are Still Here,

Throughout our lives, we all have faced good times and bad. We have experienced the troubles of middle school, the excitement of high school, first relationships, proms, going off to college, and everything that comes with going away to school. We have experienced heartbreak, loss, arguments, and long distance. Yet you are still here. For that, I am more thankful than you will ever know.

Whether we have known each other for three months, six years, eight years, or our whole lives, I know that you are a forever friend. I know that even when some boy breaks my heart, you are here to tell me that I will make it through it. When I make terrible life decisions, you are here to tell me to get myself together. When I lose someone extremely close to me, you are here to wipe away my tears (which I refuse to acknowledge are even flowing).

I will never be able to express how truly grateful I am for you. Know that even when we drift apart, we will find our way back to one another because of how strong our bond is. Understand that you are irreplaceable, no matter how many times I joke about hating you.

Thank you for not leaving when everyone else did. Thank you for dealing with my crazy moods and for knowing how to handle me when I am hangry. Thank you for accepting that I will always order fruit salad for breakfast, even though I refuse to eat the “green fruit” (and then eating the green fruit so that I don’t feel bad). Thank you for not yelling at me when I do something completely irresponsible. Thank you for not forcing me to become someone else so that we’d fit in. Thank you for loving me, truly and completely.

Thank you for still being here.

I love you,

The Friend You Never Left

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
