Thank you for always being my number one fan.

A Thank You Letter For The Dad Who's His Daughter's Number One Fan
Sydney Fowler

Dear Dad,

I hope you figure out how to read this. Just in case, I'll text you the link so it's easier for you to find!

Just wanted to say thank you for being the best man I know and for being the absolute best father a girl could ever ask for. You are one of the most generous, intelligent, and loving people in my life. All of my friends love you, and sometimes I think they might like you more than they like me. It's fine; I can understand why. I don't mind it :)

I want to thank you for giving me an amazing male figure in my life to look up to. You have taught me what to look for in a man and shown me how I deserve to be treated by a man. And not only me, but you've taught my brothers, your sons, what it means to be a man. You have taught and shown us all how to be selfless for the ones we love, how to work hard, and how to be kind to everyone we meet. You have shown us how important family is, and for that I am so thankful.

I want to say thank you for never failing to make me smile. Whether it is by showing off your whip and nae nae or singing Bruno Mars, you truly are a joy to everyone around you. I also appreciate your tweets that are always hyping me up, including the many crucial hashtags. Those are truly the bomb, and I don't know why you aren't Twitter famous yet.

I'm grateful for your support in any and all of my endeavors, whether I'm running for president of my high school or singing in a talent show.

When I was in first grade and sang "Breaking Rree" from High School Musical in the school talent show in front of hundreds of kids and parents, it was your cheers that I still remember to this day. When I decided I was more interested in theatre than sports, you made sure you invited the whole family to my first show. And from then, on you made it to every show and still cheered the same way.

I'm pretty sure in my high school shows you actually came to every single performance of every single show because you wanted to. At almost every 12-hour dance competition you still danced along in the audience pumping up the whole crowd. During my team's dances you would stand up and fist pump and clap along in your neon green shirt, and that got you to be our official number one fan that season. I honestly was so proud.

I appreciate your hugs, your encouraging texts and how you always remind me that you're proud of me. You demonstrate God's love in so many ways and show what a man of Christ looks like.

I know I don't say thank you enough, so here are just a few reasons why I am so eternally grateful for you.

Even though I'm sort of grown up now, please know that you will always be so important to me, and you're one of my favorite people in the whole world and ALWAYS will be. Thank you for being my number one fan. I love you.


Your daughter

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.

When my college announced that we would be having the fall 2020 semester on-campus, I was pretty excited. After six months of living at home with my parents with nothing to do, my study abroad trip in May canceled, and my 21st birthday plans down the drain, going back to campus meant that I would regain some of my individuality and see my friends again. But since we've returned, it has not been as fun as I had hoped my senior year of college would be.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

I went through a breakup in the middle of November 2018 and decided I'd get on Tinder and see what happens.

Here are some tips on finding love on Tinder, if you're ready for commitment...

No matter what job you wish to pursue or where you'll end up in your career, writing will always be an invaluable skill.

Just ask Julia Waterbury, a former Odyssey creator and college graduate with a business degree, for whom this couldn't be more true! Though she began by using Odyssey as a creative outlet, she quickly learned it was so much more and soon was able to include her articles and skills (from writing and editing to SEO and social media marketing) to up her resume game.
