To My Husband's Best Friend, Thank You For Everything

Things wouldn't be the same without your pain in the butt.

To My Husband's Best Friend, Thank You For Everything

If I am being honest, I often wondered who would end up becoming my husband's life-long best friend. I knew the concept and meaning of friendship wasn't something he took lightly and I didn't know if another guy could realistically meet the same expectations of effort. We're loyal round here.

And then you showed up.

And although I was happy to see you fulfill that role for him, I was not expecting you to mean so much to me too. I never thought I could hang out alongside my man and his best friend and feel like the three amigos.

Admittedly, the first thing I thought jokingly when I saw how the friendship you two shared was, "These two are idiots".

My thoughts now in 2019? These two are idiots.

The difference though, is I've squeezed myself, (at respective times, of course), into the clan of beers, burps, farts, man jokes, and ultimately the highest honor of them all: GIRL TALK. Now nothing brings me more joy than the dumb conversations we can all have and knowing that there isn't ever any "third wheel" atmosphere. When a call comes to either my phone or his after 10:00 pm, we know it's you with your typical silly late-night chats. And if my husband walks just a little bit faster to his phone when getting a text, I know that it's because you're more than likely on the other end.

Knowing that the man I love has someone else that continues to have his back and support him the way I do makes me so happy.

I continue to be reassured that our families will always be intertwined as we grow older.

Thank you for friendship you've given him and me after all of these years. Even our one-on-one dates to Hookah Bars when he's too tired to join mean more than you know, and the Facetime check-ins about daily life while you're away (Oorah!) are always a breath of fresh air from the craziness.

So as much as you guys are a pain in the butt, I am so happy my husband has you in his life, and mine too.

I know between the two of us, we can manage him. ;-)

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.
