A Goodbye Letter To The Soulmates I Found In College

"Distance makes no difference. The heart always finds its way home."

A Goodbye Letter To The Soulmates I Found In College

Never again will our friendship be this effortless- your rooms just a few feet away from mine or your houses around the block. Say goodbye to binge watching Netflix shows, pulling all-nighters, and going on McDonald’s runs at 2 a.m. I will miss you- my second family, my sisters, my biggest supporters, my friends. You each have shaped me into the woman I am today.

As graduation draws near, a fear has instilled in me that life will never be the same. I envy the freshman that are just starting to create their college memories because I would give anything to go back and do it all over again with you.

You are the friends I always imagined I would have. I believe we will be a part of each other’s futures. We are going to have wild bachelorette parties. You are all going to come to my wedding. My children are going to call each of you “auntie.” And we will take “family” vacations together.

I wish I could keep things the way they are going- but I can’t. Welcome to adulthood, the real word, whatever you’d like to call it. It’s a new world without you girls standing by my side and never has silence seemed so loud.

Time is going to pass and getting together is going to become a challenge. We’ll soon be pulled apart, but in a this is life kind of way. It’s not because our love will fade, it’s because time has a way of moving so quickly that we won’t realize it.

We’ll plan to meet up for happy hours or plan a girl’s night out, but soon our busy schedules and families will consume any free time we may have. Life will get in the way, as most people say, and our visits will be more sporadic. We will get to the point that coming together for special occasions is even a rarity.

Although we will not talk to each other every day, I promise to try my best to stay in touch as much as I can. I hope that we can all agree that this is going to be a group effort and it will only work if we all do our part. Our friendship is easy now, but once we leave this campus, it is going to be put to the test. If there’s ever a time when we don’t stay in touch, promise to tag me in Timehop posts, so we can relive our glory days at the Ville.

Each one of you has left your mark on me and my college memories include all of you. When we come back for reunion, campus will not look and feel the same. Hopefully, there will be new buildings and updates throughout campus and maybe the caff will even have better food! But none of that will matter because the campus we know and only will only exist in our memories. The most perfect campus is one where I can remember us on it. Our last four years will always be here, no matter where life takes us. I am so thankful that our paths were destined to cross the minute we stepped onto this campus.

Thank you to our orientation leaders, who assigned us to be in the same orientation groups in the summer of 2013. Thank you to Residence Life, for making us neighbors/roommates by chance our freshman year. Thank you Billiards, for being the home of our first crazy night out. Our #squad was obviously meant to be.

I love you all.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

7 Reasons 'Hubie Halloween' Is A Must-Watch Halloween Film For October Movie Nights

Just knowing it's an Adam Sandler movie, you can assume it's funny but very ridiculous.


"Hubie Halloween" was just released on October 7. It follows Hubie Dubois in Salem, Massachusetts, on Halloween. He patrols the town to make sure people are safe. He's the kindest and caring person in the town and also the most bullied.

This poor man is scared of everything. He screams when he sees scary decorations and when people prank him. Definitely a laugh, but when I watched it, I felt bad for him. The one person that pulled at my heartstrings is Violet Valentine, a woman he had a crush on since high school. She's super nice to him and stands up for him when she can. It was great seeing someone, other than his grandma, on Hubie's side.

While this is my first ever presidential election, I have voted before in others, including at least one other "off" year election. I can honestly say that one of the things that made voting for the first time interesting was that I personally don't really identify myself with either party completely.

"Emily in Paris" is one of the newest Netflix original series and it began streaming on the platform on October 2.

I knew this was going right to the top of my watch list because I have a serious girl crush on Lily Collins, it's from the creator of "Sex and the City", and the plot feeds directly into my "Mamma Mia" fantasy of just hopping on a plane and killing it in a whole new country. Not going to lie, the series has its slightly cringe-y moments, but that honestly makes me love it even more.
