Have You Found The Dionne To Your Cher?

Could you imagine a life with your best friends? ... Ughhh AS IF!

Could you imagine a life with your best friends? ...Ughhh AS IF! We all have that one friend that is just as crazy, fun-loving and totally clueless like you are. Together you can take on the world and do it while looking totally fabulous. Have you found the Dionne to your Cher?

1.They are honest, even when it’s not what you want to hear…

The truth can hurt, but when it comes from your best friend, it is much easier to handle. She will tell you when you need to brush your teeth or when it's time to give up on your unreachable crush. Her honesty will be both a blessing and a curse. Don’t forget to thank her when she tells you how fat you look in that dress you almost spent $75 on.

2. You both over analyze everything!

What’s worse than a drama queen? Two drama queens! No matter how small something may be, you two have no issue making it so much bigger. The two of you could never be FBI agents because you’re both “Totally Buggin”!

3. You each "Make-Up" a large portion of each other’s lives...

She knows how to bring light to your life and how to highlight your face just right. Together, the two of you have more make up than Mac and Sephora combined. Leave it to her to perfect your eye liner wings and the beloved Smokey-eye. Contour is her couture and there is so much more about her to be thankful for.

4.She can trash talk just as bad as you, if not worse...

At your first sign of distress, she will be ready to make sure whoever made you feel that way never does again. No one is allowed to make you feel less than you are. She will fill the role of the overprotective big sister and make anyone who has done you wrong regret it more than ever. Let the chronicles of trash talking and dirty looks begin…

5.When you became friends, you became each other’s personal stylists.

Have you ever found yourself in a pile of clothes and still not know what to wear? Have no fear, you best friend is here! She will loan you her favorite pair of shoes if it means that you will have the perfect outfit for your first date. She will willingly watch you try on fifty ensembles just to put on the first one you tried on to ensure you are happy with your finalized choice. Why? Because you’d do that same for her!

6. You offer each other advice, although it might not be good advice..

Your BFF is full of helpful information on the latest trends, gossip and so much more, but let’s be honest, she is just as clueless as you are! Make sure you check her sources when she offers you tips on basically everything. Cosmopolitan is not always reliable.. but hey, they do know the 411!

7. You have a handshake no one can replicate.

The typical high five doesn't cut it anymore. You two basically have a dance routine for your 5 minute handshake. It took you a while to remember all the hand clapping, grasping, snapping and booty shaking. But with time you have mastered it and will take every opportunity to perform it in front of anyone willing to watch.

8. You two don't stop talking on the phone!

You could be two feet away or 200 miles away and you will both be on the phone either texting or talking to each other. A conversation that was to merely ask a simple question ends up lasting hours and hours. There is so much to talk about especially when you each have assignments due the next morning, but someone how you find the time.

9. Whenever you two are together, there is nothing that can stand in your way!

They say there is power in numbers, but all you need is you and your girlfriend! She will pick you up when you are down and will clap for you when you are on top because you would do the same for her. She'll be your biggest fan and your most dedicated supporter no matter what. You are so grateful to have her and forever be "Rollin with the homies!"

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

Finding Your Niche In College Starts With Finding You

Attempting to be someone you are not for the sake of having company only hurts you in the long run.


Transitioning to college is hard enough, but trying to find a place where you feel "at home" can make this time even more stressful. Here are some tips on how to find that place/group of people that make you feel like sunshine.

I have always felt a little out of place wherever I went, but it wasn't until college that I realized that this feeling was so special and more people should capitalize on their differences rather than conforming to a certain mold. Transitioning to college and finding your place among so many people can be very overwhelming. The added stress of attempting to be someone you aren't for the sake of having company adds a whole other layer to this problem. The easiest thing for me to do in any situation like this is trying to make the setting a little smaller. One of the most obvious ways to do this on a college campus is by getting involved!

It is inevitable that within the first few weeks of the semester at any college, there will be an organization fair. This is a chance to scope out all that your school has to offer! Chances are there will be some type of group or club that lines up with your interests. Most college campuses have extracurricular opportunities ranging from social sororities and fraternities, professional ones, intermural sports, vocal groups, and so many more. You are more than likely going to find some type of organization that you can call home if you seek them out. Joining an organization is such an easy way to interact with people with similar interests. An interest can bring two completely different people together and create some beautiful friendships. It is situations like this where it is important to be your authentic self and mingle with those you share something with.

That being said, finding your place in college isn't always about being involved. Getting involved on campus is just one of the simplest ways to start. There are so many other opportunities on campus to meet people whether it be among others in your residence hall, people in your classes, or just people you find yourself stumbling upon! Finding people to spend your time with is easy; however, you should make it a point to surround yourself with people who bring you up.

Once you have a set group of people that you find yourself spending time with, it is important to pay attention to the way you feel when you're around them. If you find yourself feeling bad about yourself or get the impression that you need to change something in order to "fit in," chances are the people you're around are not the best for you or your self-esteem. It is important to surround yourself with people who allow you to feel comfortable in your own skin. That being said, you also want people who encourage you to make good decisions and help you reach your goals. People who encourage toxic behavior in your life might be fun in the short term, but in the grand scheme of things, you need to be surrounded by people with your best interest in mind. Essentially, surrounding yourself with people who influence you to be your best self is one of the best decisions you can make short and long term.

The key to all of this is being conscious of your own feelings and needs. Pay attention to who reaches out to you to hang out. Notice the ones who pay attention to you as you speak when it feels like no one is listening. More than anything, be conscious of who you're with and where you're at when you experience moments of pure happiness. Life is too short to waste your precious time on people who don't build you up. Wouldn't you rather spend your time with more moments of pure joy than self-hate? Start living for you!
