6 Reasons Why I Love My Hot Mess Friend Group

6 Reasons Why I Love My Hot Mess Friend Group

Even though we’re all a bunch of bitches but we really do love each other.

As my sophomore year comes to a close and everyone and their mother are stressing the f*ck out about exams I’m kind of wishing the semester wasn't over. I mean, yeah, I’m obviously super excited to be going home and being done with school but, with the semester ending, I’m honestly a little sad. Sad because I won’t be seeing my best friends for a vast majority of the summer. Even though we are actually the hottest mess of a friend group you could possibly find I’m still so incredibly lucky they chose to hang out with me freshman year. As one of them would say we're a definite “cluster f*ck” of a group, but that’s what keeps things interesting. We’re a group that fails at early morning adventures to mountain sunsets, being quiet when we’re together on the street and making plans to hang out -- but I love it. Every minute with these ladies is filled with laughter and just a little bit of unnecessarily rude sarcasm. Here are just a few things that my friends and I consistently do that make us a “cluster f*ck”:

1. That time we wore matching pajamas for “friends-giving”

I'm sure everyone walking down the street had a good laugh when we walked out on a snack run. The large bear slippers were definitely icing on the cake.

2. Our actual inability to take a decent picture together

As my cover photo suggests we can't take a good picture as a group. This makes finding an appropriate Instagram post nearly impossible.

3. The fact that we can’t take anything seriously

Even though this can be frustrating our ability to not take things seriously can also be helpful. This means that the laughs are pretty much always guaranteed.

4. We’re a little hostile towards each other except for a couple of days out of the year

Sometimes we might be a little mean to one another, but things can still get ~tender~. Especially during holidays when we go around and say what were thankful for (Hint - it's each other).

5. Being sarcastic 98% of the time

Sarcasm might be the lowest form of wit but it works for a bunch of dumb b*tches. Just kidding, you're all oh so smart.

6. The fact that it takes us a good week and a half to plan a get-together

Have you and your friend group ever spontaneously planned a cute group hang out? Yes? Well, we haven't. Nothing gets us riled up more than asking what we should all do for dinner.

With every friend group comes some drama. I’m not going to lie to you, we’re all kind of bitchy towards each other. Even so, that doesn’t mean I don’t love them because I know without them school and life would be much harder and nowhere near as entertaining. Being done with sophomore year means being halfway done with college and just a little bit closer to the probability of leaving these friends behind. Until then, I just want to thank them for the endless supply of struggles, uncomfortable hugs, and bitching sessions. Thank you for being my ride or dies. ILY.

To The Best Friend Who Ghosted Me For Her S.O.

She picked spending almost every day with him over helping me through rough times and trying to save our dying friendship.


According to dictonary.com, the definition of ghosting is the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication.

Ghosting is something that this generation is all too familiar with. It is something that makes me sick to my stomach, and I still cannot figure how all these people just “ghost” others who sincerely care about them.

I have had my fair share of guys or may I say, boys, ghost me.

It was rough but I have gotten through it, no big deal. Boys are boys, there are plenty more out there. Random friends along the way have ghosted me, it’s still just whatever to me.

This newly discovered ghosting that welcomed itself into my life is one that I don’t think I will ever be able to just simply be “whatever” about.

My best friend ghosted me. You might say that is crazy or ask me why.

This wasn't the typical ghosting though, I kind of knew what was going on. It all came down to one simple thing, her new significant other.

Yes, a new boy entered her life, so she exited my life.

I watched it happen right in front of my face, but I had no idea what I was in for.

It didn’t happen all at once. Our friendship went from seeing each other every day to only seeing each other once a week, if that. It went from telling each other everything to her purposely hiding things from me and blowing me off. I was hurt, but I never thought it would lead to where our friendship is at now. Long story short, we aren't friends.

I confronted her about it because I was not okay with getting ghosted by my best friend. She just ran and continued to run from it, and on top of that lie to me.

What hurts the most is that after YEARS of friendship, after going through hell and back with her, she chooses a guy over me. She picked spending almost every day with him over helping me through rough times and trying to save our dying friendship.

It hurts when a guy ghosts you, but it truly breaks your heart when your best friend ghosts you.

All I have to say to her is, I hope that he makes you happy and I hope that you two have a wonderful time together. Hopefully, he is a good one because he has big shoes to fill becoming your boyfriend and now your best friend.

To My Distant Friend, We Don't Always Talk But I'm Here For You

I know we haven't spoken in a while, but you're still my best friend.

Dear Distant Friend,

I wanted to start off by saying thank you.

When I started college I thought I'd have so much time for my friends from back home that went to other universities but, I don't have as much time as I thought — classes and studying are overwhelming and I forget to check in or say hi like I used to. The daily conversations turn to weekly talks and before I know it it's been months since we've spoken.

I know we haven't talked in weeks or months, but wanted to tell you how much I love and appreciate you. We can pick up like no time passed and everything between us is the same and I am so thankful for that.

I'm constantly put on blast for not texting back or snapchatting back, but I promise I could never truly forget about my friends.

Having friends I know I can count on no matter what happens and no matter how much time has passed really keeps me sane.

Sometimes I am distant and sometimes I'll forget to tell you good luck on your math test or forget to ask how your day was, but you are always in the back of my mind and always on my heart.

Life gets overwhelming sometimes and it is totally understandable to not remember your phone is nearby and to make conversation, but I promise it means so much to hear from my friends a simple "Hey girl! Miss you! Hope you're doing well!"

We all have new friends and new teammates at college but don't forget about those friends you made in middle school and high school. They're just as important, if not more.

So again I say it, thanks for dealing with me popping in and out. Thanks for handling me when I go missing and when I forget to say that you're important to me.


I'm Sorry I Forgot To Text You Back... Again
