An Open Letter Dedicated To My Roommate And Best Friend

An Open Letter Dedicated To My Roommate And Best Friend

A Letter of Appreciation to the Best Friend I've Been Waiting For


Dear Best Friend,

It still surprises me how fast we got to know each other and even faster to become close friends. I couldn't ask for anyone better to be my roommate and my best friend. Being best friends with my roommate is the best thing in the world.

When I come back from a day of classes and work, we're here to rant and listen to each other talk about our day, from how boring it was to the last tea we heard. Life together with you is never boring. You make it so that I'm never afraid to share my stories and thoughts with you. I'm constantly intrigued and amused when listening to your stories and your current thoughts on why men and women think so differently.

We had our first big fight recently, and it absolutely broke my heart. I thought I had lost the best person to be my friend. But making up with you only demonstrated how strong we are together. We could have easily just lived as roommates and never become the friends we are today. I'm so grateful we both took that perfect chance and grew close together.

I've never had a friendship quite like the one we have together. It's like fate brought us together at the perfect place and time. When I tell people about you, I can't help myself but smile, grateful and in awe of our friendship.

Thank you for being my retail therapy buddy when I'm having a bad day. Thank you for the conversations till 4am, talking about our goals and dreams for the future and sharing our favorite songs and movies at the moment. Thank you for the wild, spontaneous adventures and our late night food runs. Thank you for the endless advice on boys and relationships. I'll be here when you need advice on the lucky man who is able to call you his significant other. I'll always have your back.

And when you're feeling down, I'll be here to listen and hug you. Let's grow and be happy together on our brightest days.

No matter how stupid or genius our decisions and ideas are, I'll support you all the way. And after a mistake or failure, I'll be here for you so we can bounce back together stronger than ever.

You changed my life and I'm so proud to be friends with you. Let's continue motivating each other to be the best that we can be. I'm always cheering you on!


Your Best Friend

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
