5 Types Of Friends You Should Have In College That Will Be There Through The Thick And Thin

They make life better.

5 Types Of Friends You Should Have In College That Will Be There Through The Thick And Thin
Cassie Nichols

You will meet many people in college, but there are some who will always be there through the thick and thin. These are those people.

1. The Honest One

This is the friend who will always tell you how it is. Whether you are asking them about an outfit, a boy, or trying to make a life decision, they are not going to sugarcoat the truth. Sometimes their opinion might sound harsh, but you know it is out of love. They might even know you better than you know yourself at times.

2. The Social Butterfly

This friend is always down to have a good time. They seek adventure and push you to your limits (sometimes a little too much). You know they will always be willing to go out with you at any given moment and they are a good go-to gal when you've had a bad week. Bring on the weekend!

3. The Comic Relief

When you need to laugh, don't look any further. This is the girl who will make the whole room laugh without meaning to. Maybe she's a bit clumsy and her lack of coordination is what does it. Or maybe she just thinks of the most random, sarcastic comments that normal people would not be able to think of on the top of their head. All that is needed to be said about this friend is "LOL."

4. The Parental Figure

Ah yes! The friend who is like our "mom" away from home. We all have one. This friend is the one who will always carry around a bunch of random stuff "just in case." You always go to her for advice in the time of a crisis. Remember that time you went a little too hard on the weekend? This is the friend who gave you a helping hand.

5. The Loyalist

AKA the Day 1. The BFF. The twin. Whatever you want to call her she has been around for as long as you can remember. You two tell each other everything. She has seen you at your worst and still loves you. This friend is irreplaceable. Don't take her for granted.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
