After recently completing the ten season epic, "Friends", I can honestly say that you can learn anything you need to know about true friendship from this late 90s to early 2000s sitcom. If you haven’t watched it yet, I can tell you that you’re in for an emotional rollercoaster. And if you are one of the many who have watched it, I have an honest question for you, were Ross and Rachel on a break?

The truth about this show is that it is in fact an emotional roller coaster. Whether you're looking for a good cry or a good laugh, "Friends" will be there for you (pun intended).

Now, I am no expert, but I have assembled a list of the all-around best episodes of "Friends", some that will make you cry and some that will make you laugh.

The beautiful reality of the situation is that no matter the episode, you’ll probably be obnoxiously laughing one minute and then crying the next. It was incredibly challenging to pinpoint the best episodes in the series, in part due to the exceedingly long list of episodes and also in part due to the fact that they are all wonderful in different ways

In my opinion, this is the list with the most iconic episodes that true "Friends" fans would be able to quote forward and backward.

So for those of you who are "Friends" virgins, here is a cliff notes version of the series; get watching!

And for those of you who have seen the series, I hope that when you read this list, you are reciting all of the iconic catchphrases and reminiscing about all of the good times you had watching these episodes.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
