My Best Friend Lives 900 Miles Away But He Has Never Left My Side

And I love him likes he's right here with me, you're worth every mile between us.

My Best Friend Lives 900 Miles Away But He Has Never Left My Side

When I was 12, I ran a fan account on Instagram. One day, another fan account asked me for my kik in the comments of a post. He was a blonde haired, blue eyed amazing boy who loved wrestling as much as I do, and that's something I've never seen in my whole entire life. This boy became a staple in my adolescent life. I would spend hours staying up talking to him and hiding my phone from my mom so she wouldn't ask about the weird area code I was texting.

The more I talked to this boy, the closer we got. At first I adored the idea of being able to be whoever I wanted to, but it was so easy to let him see exactly who I was. I don't know if it was the safety of him not being able to see me when I poured my heart out or judge me when I cried over stupid things. He had the choice to leave, it would have been so much easier for him to, but he never did.

I was in a relationship for three and a half years on and off, and he never left my side. It wasn't lust, it wasn't infatuation, it was genuine love. True love was something that my tiny 15 year old self had not yet experienced. He never got mad when I ranted on and on about things he doesn't really care about, just listens to for my sake. He has never once pushed me to do anything I wasn't comfortable with.

With everything I've been through in the last few years, he has never left my side. It's like he knows exactly how much I need him and for some insane reason he feels the exact same way. I've had boyfriends, I've had people who were "supposed" to love me, who were "supposed" to do everything he does, but they didn't. They would try sometimes, but they would almost always make me feel bad for it. He never did that, he constantly reassures me I'm doing okay and has the most faith in me.

Do I know what our future holds? Not a clue. Am I counting down the days until I can see my best friend and give him the biggest hug in the world? Damn right I am.

To my amazing, amazing, boy...I love you so much and thank you will never be enough for everything you've done for me. I'll see you asap. Love Always,

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
