An Open Letter to My Best Friend: This Is What You Deserve In a Guy

I cannot wait to say I told you so.

An Open Letter to My Best Friend: This Is What You Deserve In a Guy

I look at you and I just see all that is good. I see how happy you make everyone around you. How your laugh is so contagious. No matter where we go you’re the first to make conversations with people. You truly are one of a kind and I consider it a privilege to call myself your best friend.

But for some reason, you don’t see yourself the way I do and everyone does. Sometimes I wonder what it is you see in the mirror? I wonder what you tell yourself. But more than that I wonder why you choose people who aren’t worthy of you. You get hurt not because you aren’t good enough but because they aren’t. I wish you saw that.

I’m going to take a moment and tell you what it is you deserve in a person.

You deserve to never go to bed mad or crying.

You deserve morning texts because even if you don’t know it, someone out there is thinking about you before they open their eyes.

You deserve someone asking you to slow dance.

You deserve someone other than me telling you, you are one of the most beautiful people there is.

Because you are.

Someone who is so sure of you.

You deserve someone who wants you and only you.

Someone who wants to introduce you to their parents.

You and I both know every parent loves you.

In fact, everyone loves you.

You deserve to meet his friends who already know you because he can’t stop talking about you.

You deserve someone who will help carry any burdens you tend to bear alone.

You’re one of the strongest people I know but I’d love for you not to have to be sometimes.

You deserve surprises and random gifts and random compliments.

You deserve to look at someone with confidence.

And you deserve someone who sees only you in a crowded room.

You deserve someone who encourages every dream you have even the crazy ones.

You deserve someone who is going to reciprocate all the love you have to give.

It takes a rare type of person who deserves all you have to give.

Because they aren’t just getting you as a girlfriend…

They’re getting your unconditional love.

They’re getting your support.

They’re getting someone who will always put them first.

They’re getting someone who is a dreamer but more than that a doer.

They’re getting someone who will teach them how to love the right way.

They’re getting the best type of person there is.

They’re getting someone who will make their lives so much better.

I know this because you make my life better just by being in it.

You deserve the best guy there is. I bet he’s struggling to find you too. I bet he’s going through days where he wonders if there is anyone like him at all.

And when you meet him and I’m there giving your wedding speech I look forward to saying I told you so.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
