To My Go-To Girl

To My Go-To Girl

We go out and get food way too much with each other, you listens to my problems, and I listen to yours.

I am fortunate enough to say that I have more than one best friend - I actually have many!

But, the best friend I'm about to write about I have only known for a year. I met her at my current job and we didn't become friends right away until we were in the same yoga class at college. Plus, on my birthday, I was working and she was not but she came and brought me cupcakes at work - the frosting was my two favorite colors; blue and green, and they were actually gorgeous. Right then and there I was like, yup we're friends.

I mean who doesn't love cupcakes?

We became closer through yoga as well laughing at each other about how we could do none of the poses beside the corpse, which was like taking a nap. Now she is like my go-to girl half the time. We go out and get food way too much with each other, she listens to my problems, and I listen to hers. We talk crap about people when necessary and we always have each other's backs.

We are literally laughing all the time - it's great. We are both equally weird and embrace it. We also tend to boost each other's self-confidence, which is what best friends are supposed to do, right? With Christmas right around the corner, I obviously bought her stuff, and can't wait to give her presents (even though she has notified me how terrible I am at it because I think I have told her half of them). I can't help it I like making people happy and I think she will love them all.

She has been there for me in my highs and lows and when my family and I had to move, I was kinda far away from all my other friends to just be like, "Hey let's go get food." I couldn't do that anymore but luckily, because of my job, I met her and so many more great people. I will be forever grateful for that.

Unfortunately, she is leaving me soon to go to college and to better her future. Who am I kidding? That's not unfortunate at all; I mean it kind of is for me, but she is going on to bigger and better things. I am so proud of her and I know she will do great in her future endeavors. I'm gonna miss her, but we need to both live our lives to the fullest. We have had so much fun and made so many memories in the littlest amount of time, and i'm happy with that. I know we're gonna visit each other as much as we can and we will FaceTime, and text, and Snapchat - all of it, as long as we keep in touch for a long time, I'm cool with that.

I think a lot of people have overlooked her throughout her life, or never actually took the time to know her like I did, because I tell you this: she is a great person and whoever messes with her has to deal with me (just saying). I just appreciate her and am sad she is leaving but, also ecstatic for her. Maybe some of our memories will make you laugh like we do! Just appreciate all the friends you have in your life and always take pictures to capture the memories or funny videos, so you can always look back in laugh over it!

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
