An Open Letter To My Long Distance BFF

Even miles apart, no one compares to you.

An Open Letter To My Long Distance BFF

To My Long Distance Best Friend,

Honestly, I don't know where to start.

It's kind of crazy how we would go from seeing each other every single day and being a 10-minute drive away, to not seeing each other for five months and living 600 miles away. However, it did not change our friendship at all.

I love our Sunday morning calls: sharing the terrible and cringe-worthy stories from the weekend, the newest gossip, and reflecting on our GREAT luck with boys. Even being so far away, we never let it affect our relationship.

I love how you keep me updated with every component of your life as if I am right there with you. We know each other's friends, enemies, roommates, class schedules, family drama; we know each other's lives almost as well as our own.

I love how I can still come to you with anything. If I text you in the middle of the day, or the middle of the night, I know I will get a kick-ass "you can do it" motivating message back as if you were here telling me yourself. Honestly, it's as if nothing ever changed. Instead, we turned late night Taco Bell runs into late night phone calls.

I love how you are still my number one fan and the only person who will be straight with me. Even miles away, you are the only person to always call me on my bullshit and tell me I need to fix my attitude, go to the gym, study more, etc. I can always count on you to support me.

But what I love most is how great of a person you truly are. When we went off to college away from home and states away, I knew it would be hard. I didn't know if we would stay close, and we have both watched our high school friendships slowly fall apart. But you are the one person who has stuck by my side, and I thank you so much for that. I never had to learn what it was like to lose touch with their best friend.

You are kind, supportive, crazy, and genuine. You always look for the best in people and do everything you love wholeheartedly. I am so incredibly proud of all you have accomplished, and can't wait to see all that you continue to do with your life, with me by your side.

And although we are miles apart, I have never had to go a day without you.

So thank you, for being you and the best friend a girl could ask for. I can't imagine my life without you (it's a mess as it is) and our crazy friendship is what keeps me sane. Thanks for being adventurous and always down for anything, and sticking by me, even during my psycho breakdowns and my crazy ideas. Even with all the new people we've met, no friendship compares to ours. You are really the best.

Miss you lots,

Your BFF

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
