The struggles of having a long distance bestfriend

I Love My Long Distance Best-Friend
Thought Catalog

In excitement of visiting my Friend in Virginia this weekend I couldn't help but reminisce on the times we shared when we were able to access each other at anytime. Words cant explain the struggle of having a friend that distance hinders the closeness. Wishing everyday life hadn't torn you in different directions. Although I’m grateful for the place I am in my life I still question God on why things ended up the way they did. Why did I have to leave my old school? Old friends? Theres positives and negatives for every change in life but leaving my friend probably has to be the hardest negative to deal with.

I love her life more than my own at times. We get each other and are always there for late night early morning convos. When you have a friendship like ours that literally picks up right where we left off, thats a true friendship. Were bluntly honest with each other using sarcasm and love and for that I’m grateful to have someone like her keep me grounded and I'm sure she feels the same.

I miss having that close distance friend that you can pick up on late nights when you just need a therapy drive. Or that friend that you can laugh about jokes and no one else understands or can begin to understand. I miss having her shoulder to lean on and being her shoulder to lean on. Occasional phone calls and texting are great but nothing beats seeing someone in that time you need them most.

Candice and I did everything together. From Starbucks trips, skipping class, riding around having come to Jesus meetings, basically if you seen her you seen me or vise versa. If you would have told me we would have lost touch upon me leaving King I would have laughed but it happened and we cant get that time back. Luckily though we were able to come back in each others life when we ultimately needed it.

Our friendship picked right up right where we left off. Lots of catching up and come to Jesus meetings later. Im finally going to visit her for fall break and my heart cant be anymore excited for this opportunity. I cant wait to laugh and sing in the Kia just like our King days and go to Starbucks to get her Chai Tea and my pumpkin spice.

God knew what he was doing when he brung us back together. I cant thank him enough for her presence in my life again.

P.S. Candice if you read this know I'm always there for you even if I am 300 miles away. I cant wait to see you.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
