How Long Distance BFFs Can Still Be #Goals

There should be a corny song dedicated to long distance best friends like us.

"What's your schedule like?" is something that I have been asking my long distance best friend for about four years now. There is nothing that can come between us. There is nothing that has come between us, I should say. We have been able to work through hectic schedules. Whether it be school, work, other friends, gym time, yoga classes, guys- anything, really. We have always managed to maintain a healthy lasting friendship. We have made time for each other. We have been there for each other in some of the roughest and toughest times of our lives through texts, Tweets, phone calls and Facetime. Thank goodness for technology!

I don't know where I would be without my best friend. More specifically, I don't know where I would be without my long distance best friend. Now, I know that people say that it's hard having a long distance relationship. I'm sure they meant friendships too, and not just a "significant other" relationship, right? Anyways, yeah, it is hard. It's kind of tough not having them around for face to face encounters. Especially when you want to watch The Notebook and eat a ton of junk food, pig out and cry your eyes out together. It's even harder when you are out shopping and they can't tag along to tell you how awesome those jeans look and how horrible those shoes are. Still, with technology, there seems to be a bridge to help with those "SOS" moments, but I will admit that it does kind of suck not having her around face to face more often.

You want to know what, though? It's also kind of cool. Want to know the benefits of having a long distance best friend? For one, every time you guys swap clothes you get to keep it until the next time you see her face to face, and although you miss that adorable top and might want those earrings back at least you have that furry vest to make up for it.

Then there's the actual excitement in everything that you do. I mean, don't you just love sending your long distance best friend pictures of everything that you do, of everything you buy, and everything you see on social media? Am I just that annoying, guys? Everything just seems more exciting to share! I mean, talk about sending her a picture of me holding a boba drink every time I go there without her. And how about all those memes? They seem funnier, and somehow in sharing all of these moments with her, although she is miles apart, makes it all more exciting. And how about that Netflix show you can watch together but apart! Isn't that just the best?! It makes the show even more special and much more fun to watch. Just make sure that you guys commit to watching it at the same time and only certain episodes per night or something like that so that one doesn't get too ahead and ruin the fun for you. I speak from experience, guys!

Space, that's another thing that is guaranteed with long distance friendships. Talk about miles and miles of space! But hey, space can be a good thing. Especially if you guys are polar opposites and all. Of course, you may go through withdrawals like I do as soon as you aren't attached to the hip, but space is sometimes needed. Isn't there a quote that says that absence makes the heart grow fonder or something like that?

Anyways, you sure do appreciate a good thing once you place space and distance and time between you guys. There is another great benefit in having a friendship such as a long distance one and here it is. You test it. You test the strength. You test the pureness. You test your friendship and whether or not it is pure, strong, and has any potential in surviving through anything.

I am proud to say that my long distance friendship has survived through the toughest of times and circumstances. I am proud to say that I have a long distance best friend and we work out perfectly and have never been happier. She is the ying to my yang. The apple to my eye.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

255609

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.

I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Ariana Grande released her first single called "positions" since "boyfriend" with Social House and it is a BANGER. This song is absolutely incredible and I am SURE you will agree with me once you listen.

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
