​We Were Distant Friends, But Life Brought Us Back To Each Other

Life is never as sweet as it is when you guys are in it.

​We Were Distant Friends, But Life Brought Us Back To Each Other
Savanna Stevie

When times get rough, there is always that certain person or people you go to for comfort or support. Usually, it is someone you are with 24/7 and who knows everything about you.

There was a small point in my life when I had many friends, but no one I was close enough to pour my heart out to. I felt very lost and lonely for a period of time because I had all these feelings and emotions I wanted to let loose, but no one to help me do that.

I have these two friends, Ally and Haleigh, that I have known since freshman year of high school. We were very close in high school and did everything together. I could always count on having a good time when I was with them. They were my best friends. Towards the end of high school, however, we began to drift apart, since I went to a new high school and had made new friends. We never stopped caring for one another, but it was not like it used to be.

When college began, we realized we were all staying in the same dorm building as each other. We started to rekindle our friendship towards the end of freshman year, but it was still nothing like it used to be.

This past October, I went through really hard experiences and needed someone to open up to and listen to me. This was the small point in my life when I had a lot of friends, but no one I was really close to.

One day when walking to class, I ran into Ally, who I had not seen since the beginning of summer. We talked for a second and then eventually she invited me over to hang out with her and Haleigh at their apartment. This may just seem like old friends catching up, but this was a blessing in disguise for me.

With the three of us once being best friends, it did feel a little awkward when I came over for the first time because I felt like I barely knew them. I did barely know them. I eventually started to hang out with them more because they kept my mind off things and they were just familiar faces. Days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months, and they were still in my life.

They were my best friends once again.

These were the people who helped me out of the hole I dug myself earlier in the year and they did not abandon me after I got out of it. I would do anything for them and they know that, and I know that they would do anything for me as well. They have been in my life for years now. There have been many ups and downs along the way, but I would not want to go through any of it without them.

They may not realize how much they have impacted my life, but I hope after reading this they will.

Thank you both for the enormous support and love you have given me. I couldn't do life without you guys.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
