An Open Letter To My Roommates, The Girls Who Saved Me.

Sometimes you find friends that you know will be there for you through it all.

Friends come and go. That’s just apart of growing up.

Fortunately, sometimes you find friends that you know will be there for you through it all. Sometimes you find them when you thought you’ve already been with the people you’re supposed to spend your life with.

Friends are important. They are your support system, your shoulder to cry on, the people that make you laugh and smile every time you need it, they are the family that you get to choose. Surrounding yourself with the right people makes all the difference.

Don’t ever tell yourself there aren’t brighter days ahead of you. Every day you get to live is a new day and a new chance to experience life. There are 7 billion people on this planet and you have only met a small handful of them. If you’re spending your life surrounded by toxic people you’re going to destroy yourself.

I am now a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes things need to fall apart in order for better things to come into your life.

To the girls that brought me into the middle of their lives, thank you. Thank you for welcoming me with open arms and being the most loving people I’ve ever met.

Thank you for giving me a place to be myself and accepting me for that person. Thank you for allowing me to escape the toxic lifestyle I was consumed in. Without you, I’m not sure if I would be here.

To all the rooftop nights, heart to hearts, cuddles in my bed, staying up until 5 am watching movies, dinner dates, and everything else, thank you. Being brought into your home and your friend group was the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I know one day, you’ll be the girls standing by my side when I get married.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
