An Open Letter To My Best Friend At A Different College
Kaleigh Beddingfield

To my best friend at a different college,

First off, I miss you like crazy. You have been a part of my life since practically the beginning, and it's difficult to be separated by our various life paths. I just wanted you to know that while we may not be attached at the hip like we once were, I still think about you and am rooting for you on the sidelines each day.

I hope you're taking care of yourself, but not being hard on yourself. You're already beautiful on the inside and out. I hope you're curving the losers who don't deserve you, but that you're also giving the nice guys a chance. I hope you're going out and having fun, but not too much fun (lol). I hope you're making the grades and working hard, but not stressing yourself out. I hope you're giving your life there your all, but only to the people and things that deserve it.

I know that with college comes tough choices and being forced into adulting, but I think you're figuring it out and doing just fine. Keep chasing after what you want. Life will always want to test you with some curveballs, but you know in your heart what is right. And don't let anyone convince you otherwise

I have so much love for you, best friend. I hope you know that I'm always a phone call/text/Snapchat/whatever away! It honestly brightens my day to hear from you (sorry, super sappy, but it's true). Keep doing what you're doing and know that we only have more adventures and memories to come!

See you soon,

Your best friend at a different college

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Sinning in Las Vegas

Be careful what you do and post


Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
