To An Old Friend I Don't Talk To Anymore

To An Old Friend I Don't Talk To Anymore

I am thankful for the way our friendship has faded.

Hey Old Friend,

Remember me? I'm the one you used to eat late night ice cream and binge watch One Tree Hill with.

It seems we haven't spoken much lately. Really, we haven't spoken much since we both went our separate ways in college and promised to stay "close." Well, let me begin by asking how you are. I hope you're doing well at your new school and you're meeting all kinds of interesting people. I hope these people are treating you well and that every dream you've been dying to pursue since you were 10 is actually coming true.

I never thought you would be someone I would consider an "old friend." I understand college came and I moved away and rarely have time to visit home. I also understand that times have changed and both of us have as well. It's just still hard to know that a friendship like ours didn't last like we planned.

We may not be close like we used to. I no longer call you every chance something exciting is happening in life and most times I'll learn of occurrences in your life through Facebook. We have grown apart. Normally that is easy to accept; however, giving that I considered you more like a sister, it does still sting from time to time. I am thankful for the way our friendship has faded. We never tried to hurt one another and I believe we did end on good terms.

With this, I've been wanting to take some time to thank you. To thank you for being there through the good and the ugly. From continuing my cheerleading career to having you around for my first broken heart. You have been there for me when times were not the easiest as I was for you. These are memories I will always cherish.

I want you to know I have no ill feelings towards you and I am not angry with you in any way. I've had the chance to watch you become the person you were destined to be and I am proud of the woman you have become. You have grown more in the past two years than I could've ever imagined.

While our futures may not be like we planned anymore, I will always wish you the absolute best in life. I want you to know I still pray for you every day. I pray that you finish college and find a good job. I pray that you find a man who treats you right and understands the precious cargo he is now protecting.

I know I probably won't get to partake in that special day of yours and see how beautiful you will look; Nevertheless, I do hope it exceeds every expectation you had. I hope that you will only have good things to say about us when you show your children your friends from high school. I hope they too will experience a friendship that was as close as ours used to be. I pray that you keep smiling and never let someone take the fire you have away. I pray you see how truly spectacular you have become and that you never let someone make you feel any less than perfect.

Lastly, I pray one day our paths will cross again. I miss you daily.


Your Old Friend.

18 Things That Happen When You Get A Good Roommate

Not every roommate story is a bad one.

Whenever you hear about roommate stories, they're almost never good, and they usually scare you into never wanting a roommate. "Did you hear her roommate steals her clothes?" "Her roommate doesn't shower!" "Wow, her roommate doesn't talk at all, and doesn't do laundry." From what I hear, there are more bad stories than good. That is why I consider myself lucky, because my roommate is nothing like one of those bad stories. When life hands you a good roommate after talking to about 40 girls through Facebook, a few things happen.

1. You always have someone to talk to.

2. You know each other's schedules, and whenever you both have a break is an exciting time.

3. You'll never have to dance alone.

4. You always have someone to do something with, even if it's just walking down the hall.

5. You both look out for each other, because this is your first time without your parents.

6. You always have a shoulder to lean on when things get tough.

7. Borrowing each other's things is a daily thing.

8. You TRY to help with each other's homework and assignments.

9. They're encouraging when it comes to boys. (Unless they're a f*ckboy.)

10. They're your biggest support system and your personal cheerleader.

11. They never forget to wish you luck on a big exam.

12. They accept how gross you are in the morning and not so pleasant sometimes.

13. You both know each other's favorite and least favorite things.

14. Leaving each other notes saying goodbye before class if you don't see them is normal.

15. Saying goodbye for breaks is upsetting.

16. Not seeing them all day is upsetting.

17. You have more pictures together than any of your other friends.

18. You found a best friend for life.

22 Signs The Girls You've Met In College Will Be Part Of Your Girl Gang For Life

To the lovely ladies I've met in college that I can never imagine my life without again


Let me just be the first to say, I honestly don't know how I survived the majority of my life without you guys.

Attending college out of state in a completely new area and not knowing a single soul, I was petrified of the idea of starting over. I had a great group of friends at home, and I wasn't ready to begin this new chapter of my life. Hearing my parents and family friends talk about the people they met in college only stressed me out even more because, what if I didn't meet "my people?"

Luckily, that's when you guys came along, and my life was changed forever.

1. You genuinely care about each other's happiness.

2. Talking 24/7 is absolutely necessary.  You basically have a 2nd boyfriend.

3. You know absolutely everything and more about each other...even the details that may be TMI.

4. Regardless of how dramatic it is, you can rely on one another for advice on absolutely anything.

5. You can't go more than 2 days without seeing one's just not allowed. It feels like your 2nd boyfriend has mysteriously gone missing.

6. And when you go out together for a girls night, all hell breaks loose.

7. The best way to solve your problems is with each other, and a full glass of wine.

8. Somehow you lasted 18 years without them in your life, and you wonder every day how that was possible.

A friend like you is something I've always prayed to find, and I am so thankful I did.

9. You willingly shower each other with compliments like it is your job.

10. They give you that reality check every here and there when you are being more than overdramatic.

11. When something amazing happens, you immediately go to one another to celebrate.

12. They're always your support system no matter what.

13. They'll most likely be in your bridal party because they're the only people who will keep you mentally sane.

I wouldn't want anyone else beside me on my special day.

14. Staying mad at each other for long is just not even slightly possible.

15. You probably hate the same people, for the same reasons.

To the boy who screwed over your best friend, the girl who's secretly in love with your boyfriend, and the professor who gave you a bad grade, me and my best friend most likely talk about you!

16. No one will ever mistreat them, because they would have to go through you first.

17. You're right beside them when something intense is about to go down.

Neither of you will ever go through drama alone anymore, you've always got a go-to girl.

18. They're always loyal to you and your friendship, and fortunately, they're stuck with you forever.

19. Some of your best memories are with each other.

20. They always feel like sunshine when they're around.

The people who feel like the color yellow are the type of people you always want to keep in your life.

21. You will never allow a boy to make each other cry.

22. You remind them daily how much their friendship means to you.
