A Thank You Note To All My Friend Groups

An open thank you note to all of my friends I have been lucky enough to keep in my life.

To the friends I made in middle school,

You know exactly who you are and I am so glad our friendship has stood the test of time. We have grown with each other since sixth grade and we continue to grow every day. You were there for me when I had no one else and I know for a fact you are always going to be there. I know we do not see each other often, but I adore how we always pick up right where we left off as if no time has passed. Whether it is a late night facetime call talking about boys or spontaneous shopping trips, I enjoy every moment we get to spend together. Thank you for investing, and continuing to invest your time and energy in me as I will always be there for you.

To the friends I made in Mexico,

When I was going through one of the most difficult transitions of my life, you were there for me. Moving to a new country where you do not know anyone and starting high school in a foreign country was not easy, but you guys made it easier. There is no way I could have gotten through all the classes where the teachers didn't speak a word of English or survived sneaking past the dean without getting dress coded if you didn't let me borrow your sweaters. Thank you for all you guys have done for me and I hope I get to see you guys soon. I am excited to see what your future has in store for you all.

To the friends I made at PCEP,

After I moved back to the United States I had to establish a whole new friend group. At a school with over 6,000 kids, this wasn't as easy of a task as it would seem. Somehow I managed to find some of the most supportive people I have ever met. Thank you for guiding me through the crazy culture that was our high school and helping me find my place. I am forever grateful for our friendships and I love that even after we graduated we haven't drifted apart as most friends do when they go to college. I love you guys and I hope our friendship stays as strong as it was in high school.

To all my friends I made in college,

I am the happiest I have ever been in my entire life and I owe a lot of that happiness to all the amazing friends I have made in college. You guys keep me motivated, talk me through all the struggles I face, and most importantly, you make me feel so loved. From our spontaneous Meijer trips at 3 am, to our group sleepovers where we all squeeze onto twin sized bunk beds, no matter the activity we always have fun. Thank you all for being the best support system and the greatest lifelong friends. I love you all so much and I can't wait to create more memories with you as we continue our educational careers together.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
