An Open Letter To My Best Friends

Thank you for being you.

An Open Letter To My Best Friends

Dear best friends,

First and foremost, thank you. Thank you for never judging me or how I am so different from you two. Thank you for never looking the other way, even though other people did. Thank you for being my guardian angels when I had no one to look after me. Thank you for letting me cry on your shoulders when I had my heart and I thought my world was ending. Thank you for looking past my imperfections and sticking with me through out my hardships.

I know that despite our many differences, I can always count on you both for anything. No matter the situation, big or small, you’re only a phone call away. These past few months have been roller-coasters, but with you two by my side, it seemed like walks in the parks. You two make life a little easier, and you definitely make it a lot more enjoyable.

It’s pretty terrifying how you two may know me better than I know myself, and you always know how to cheer me up. Whether it’s our 2AM Denny’s trips, or us just sitting in my living room eating leftovers and cuddling with my two dogs, you both always have the remedies for my sadness. You understand my personality more than anyone, and you know my sarcasm is only sarcasm. I don’t quite understand how I came across such wonderful human beings, but I’m not going to question this gift to me.

I hope one day you both find men who will love and appreciate you just as much as I do. I hope they look at you both with such love and care it makes your knees weak. I hope that along the way to true love, you realize how much you both deserve nothing less than the best.

Also, I want to say I’m sorry. I’m sorry that although it is 2016, racism is still a real and prevalent thing. I’m sorry that people can not un-see the color of our skin and how we look. I’m sorry that despite our strong love and friendship for each other, people will only see that we are not the same. I’m sorry that we live in a world filled with such hate and animosity towards people who are not the same color as us. And although it is not my fault, I’m apologizing on behalf of all the people who stare at us when we go out to eat together, hang out, or even speak of each other. I know that it can be hard having people judge you, but I’m glad that this never got in the way of our friendship.

Again, thank you. Thank you both for being more than just my best friends, but my sisters. You two believed in me when no one else did, and are the epitome of what true friendship is. I hope that you both see just how much I love and adore you, and wouldn’t want any other best friends.

All my best,

Your best friend

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
