11 Reasons Guy Best Friends Are Some Of The Best Friends You Can Have
Skylar Meyers

I'm so thankful to be surrounded by some really great guys in my life, but I am especially grateful for my guy best friends.

1. They are straight up with you

Don't get me wrong. I love my girl BFFs (shoutout to all of you homies!), but sometimes it takes 20 minutes for us to talk through everything before arriving at "Oh yeah, that's not good" or "Oh, he does like me."

Guys are just like, "Don't do that" or "Just reply to the man."

2. They are always down to grab food

I love that I can just call one of them up and say "Wanna grab food?" They always respond with a "Ya boi."

3. They're not afraid to make fun of you (and can usually take whatever you throw back at them) 

Well, most of them can dish it out AND take it, but I wouldn't say that's true for all...

4. They can make me laugh

Like crying on the floor laughing about the dumbest things.

5. They're really helpful when telling me if a crush is trash

This is one of the best because they're guys, and guys know guys. They offer great advice about other males and will tell me if "Nah he's trash." It saves lots of time and heartbreak, they know what they're talking about.

6. They're a good shoulder to cry on

This one is pretty great because sometimes you just need to sit and cry and while they listen.

7. Good dates to parties


There are no expectations out of the night and you can have a great time with your best friend.

8. Can always tell when something is wrong and offer advice

Maybe it's because I'm fine is used a lot, but my guy friends can tell right away if I'm having a bad day. They give pretty damn good advice as well.

9. They ask for advice

It's nice to feel like you can return the favor and it's especially fun when they ask you for girl advice.

10. Hella straight up about what you look like in your outfit

This is one of my favorites because they have no reason to lie to you about what you look like. No competition with them and they aren't just saying you look nice because they are obligated to.

11. Encouraging, funny, caring, ect

I wouldn't change my friendships with my guy best friends for the world. I am so thankful to have them all in my life.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
