A Letter To The Group Chat Squad

Everyone should have a group chat squad.

A Letter To The Group Chat Squad
Melanie Rajpal

Dear Squad,

How are you guys? Even though it has technically been, “long time, no see!”, it never really feels that way.

Though it has been a while since we were able to meet up in person, having a conversation never really feels too far away.

A few weeks after leaving for college, one of my friends from high school added everyone who we were friends with to a single Facebook Messenger group chat. I am glad to say that three years later, the group chat is still going strong.

It is really comforting to know that even though after high school and all of us went to different colleges, I still consider them to be some of my closest friends. I feel that I am really easy to take for granted, that I am still able to talk to my friends from high school. For many, that is not the case.

We can all admit it can be really easy to lose contact with people over time, even if at one time you have considered them to be really close friends. I do believe that having this group chat might be one of the main reasons we all remained so close to each other, even though we all graduated high school so long ago.

I owe a lot to the Facebook Messenger App. I really like the idea how it saves all of the old conversations that we had in the chat. It serves as a really cool time capsule to our past.

Every so often I like to scroll through our past conversations and relive the past. It's pretty cool.

That very first semester away from home, I found a lot of comfort in the group chat. It was really nice to know that even though I was far away from home, I still had someone on my side.

Love, Melanie

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
