Missing you, Em

Things are about to get sappy

Missing you, Em
Emma Looby

I am very thankful for all my friends. I love each and every one of them. I feel very grateful that I have such great friendships both at home and at school and I don't know how I got so lucky to have so many loving people in my life. Right now, I am 247 miles from one of my best friends and I am missing her like crazy. She deserves to know how grateful I am and how proud I am of her.

Dear Em,

I have no idea what I would do without you. Right now, we are only four hours apart, but the separation anxiety is so real. I want to tell you how proud I am of you for everything you've accomplished this past year. I watched you kick Anatomy class' butt, you took an important leadership role in our sorority, you are navigating your way through your faith and beliefs, you went abroad and explored insanely beautiful parts of Europe that held important, sentimental value, and you have remained the most supportive, loving, and loyal best friends I could ever ask for.

I still find it insane that we not only share the same name, but nearly all the same thoughts. We always say we each make up half of one whole brain and although we joke about it, I'm starting to think we do actually share a brain. I can always count on you to be there for me and somehow you always give the right advice and lead me in the best direction.Our friendship is one of the major reasons I can tolerate being 800 miles from home- I always have a sister right by my side. I love you to pieces.

Always remember: she got off the plane.

Love, Em

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
