A Letter To My Best Friend At Another School

Dear Best Friend Who Has Always Gone To A Different School,

Hey, poopface. I can’t wait to see your face soon. I’ve known you for almost nine years and you have become one of my best friends in that time. One aspect of our relationship that makes us unique is the fact that, though we hail from the same hometown, we have never gone to the same school- different middle school, different high school and, now, different college. Moving 1,000 miles away from you was heartbreaking, but we have utilized technology to always stay in touch.

Explaining random stuff about my school to you when I’m telling you a story, getting Snapchats from you when you decide to tune in to see my Zags play, you stealing your friends’ iPhones to FaceTime me because you have an Android, hearing stories of you Razor scootering 2 miles in the harsh, Minneapolis winter to go get Taco Bell, late night Snapchats- all of these make you feel like you’re just a few miles away, like back home. Our shenanigans this summer will be frequent and ranging in nature.

We were brought together by our mutually shared greatest passion and it is a cornerstone to our friendship. It was our way to escape our problems, but then it became a way to see one of my closest friends.

Sometimes, it's complicated to explain our friendship and how we met to others. It's even more complicated when others watch us interact because, let’s be completely honest, we are weird as hell. You bring out a very different, super weird, fun side of me that few people see. I guess the best way to describe our relationship is a true bromance, even though we’re both girls. Give us food and sports and we’re gonna be two very happy dudes.

By your inherent nature, you're sometimes a shithead and really annoy me, but then I remember those are the reasons that I love you. I also value our friendship because you can offer an outside opinion to some of my problems (though, I probably shouldn’t tell you many details because you would probably use your Razor scooter to wack someone in the head and/ or shins if you thought that they hurt me.) We are wildly protective of each other-- physically, mentally and emotionally-- and you are basically my long-lost twin.

Okay, my super short homie. I’m gonna be done now because this is too icky and mushy for us. We're gonna learn how to do the "Single Ladies" and "Thriller" dances this summer and we're gonna take over the world from London one day.

You're marginally okay, I guess. JK, I love you, Kroos.

The invention of photography

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
