To My High School Best Friends

To the girls who have always been there for all my ups and downs, I couldn't thank you enough.

To My High School Best Friends

To the two most amazing girls I know,

I can't put into words how lucky I am to have you guys in my life. You guys have seen me at my best and at my worst, but you always stick around to help me get through any situation — no matter how messed up it may be. Through every break-up, heartache, and failure, I can always count on you to be there for me. I'm beyond thankful that I can always rely on you to help me get through all those shitty situations and I'm even more grateful that I can be there to help you too.

It feels like yesterday we were sophomores sitting in the cafeteria, joking around about anything and everything. We had always been super close and did everything together--from eating lunch to buying our prom dresses to working Clemson Concessions for 12 hours straight. You guys were my first call when I got accepted into CofC and a shoulder to cry on when Dartmouth didn't work out. You supported me through the toughest times of my life and I couldn't imagine what my life would be like without you.

By the end of our senior year, you guys were no longer my Best Friends--you were my sisters. The hardest goodbye I had to make was to y'all and my plan of moving across the state was harder than I had originally thought. We had grown up together and shared everything with each other; moving away felt like the worst decision for me during that time. I was afraid we would start to grow apart and slowly lose our friendship. Honestly, it was hard to imagine starting college without you guys at my side.

Now, as my first semester at college is coming to an end, I couldn't have been more wrong. Even though we might not talk every day or see each other all the time, you two are still my first call if I have any major news. Anytime I need a good laugh or someone to listen, I can still count on you guys to always be there. I couldn't be more thankful to call y'all my sisters and I can't wait to see what the rest of our lives hold for us.

Love always, Em

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
