Dear Best Friend,

This letter is long overdue. Part the reason I procrastinated writing this letter is because I can't quite put into words how special our friendship is. There isn't a word quite yet to describe exactly how special our friendship is. You are not quite like any other friend I have. You are not just a friend to me. You are my best friend, but even best doesn't quite describe you.

You have done so many things.You have invited me to stay the summer when I couldn't make it home. Even when you are several states away, you stay up late to talk to me. You hate drama, but you always listen to mine anyways. We have sleepovers in your room when I get locked out of mine. You make me smile when I think there are no more reasons for smiling. You talk with me on the phone with me for three hours straight. Now that's some dedication! Making time to go on a walk with me when I just need to vent is your specialty. To let me know that you are thinking of me, you send packages. Random texts from you make my day. You support me in my dreams when no one else will. You hold me when all I need is a shoulder to cry on and you give me a new passion in life. I could ramble for days about things you have done, but there are also things you refuse to do.

Spreading rumors is something you refuse to do. You know that bringing me down will never bring you up. When it is easy to judge, you refuse. You have so many opportunities to make me look like a fool, yet you decline the chance to do so. Pushing buttons is something that you refuse to do. You refuse to get in the way of my dreams and let me give up on my dreams.

You are the epitome of what a best friend represents. You able to listen to me talk, even if you don't get to say much. You care about me more than I ever thought was possible. You are also able to be my kind of crazy. Now that takes special talent! You have created a feeling of trust. I am even able to share some of my deepest feelings with you. You even know some of my darkest secrets. You are even willing to give up what you want so that you can keep our friendship.

I can never put into words how grateful I am that we crossed paths and are still friends. You have brought a new light into my life. I never want to lose you as a friend. You have changed my life for the better. My life will never be the same because of you. Thank you for being my best friend!

Love,

Your Best Friend

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
