A Letter To My Guy Best Friend

We are not dating -- we're just friends.

A Letter To My Guy Best Friend
Logan Prochaska

Boy best friends, we all have them. Most of the time people confuse him for your boyfriend (gross, I know). However, sometimes that is a bit of a compliment because although we will never be together, it's nice to know that everyone else can see that he is constantly looking out for you. There are so many things we wish we could tell our guy best friends, but we don't want them to take anything we are saying the wrong way. So, this goes out to my guy friend.

Dear guy best friend,

First off, I just wanna say thank you. Thank you for always being there for me, thank you for always supporting my sometimes questionable decisions and thank you especially for bringing so much laughter into my life. Don't get me wrong, having girl best friends is amazing, but sometimes you really are the only person that gets me.

We have all these inside jokes that no one will ever understand. Most of these jokes started out as me trying to annoy you, or vice versa, but then eventually became something we say to each other on a daily basis. While all our other friends are tired of hearing the same joke every day, I still think it's hilarious, and I hope you do too.

Let's not forget the dozens of times when people ran up to us and said, "Oh my gosh! How long have y'all been dating?" My personal favorite is whenever I mention another guy's name someone will say they thought you were my boyfriend. While these conversations are very redundant, irritating and seem to never end, I'm glad you can just laugh about it instead of being weird and running away from our friendship.

So far, you've stuck by my side through it all. I know I may drive you crazy sometimes because let's be honest, I am a little crazy. I know that sometimes I make snippy comments about your choice in girls, but as long as you're happy then I'm happy. We have definitely gotten into our fair share of arguments, but the next day everything is okay again. I love this because it reassures me that you won't be going anywhere for a while.

I hope that I am half as good a friend to you as you have been to me, and if I wasn't, I know you wouldn't hesitant to inform me.

I cherish all of the times that we have spent together and I can't wait to see what the future holds for our friendship. Thank you again for never being intimidated by my constant mood swings and always intimidating boy's who may try to break my heart. You're like an older brother: annoying and overbearing, but someone I would never want to be without.


Your girl best friend

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
