I will forever cherish the memories and laughs we shared together.

An Open Letter To The Friend I Lost Along The Way

"Then I'll forgive, I won't have to forget all the good things about you." - In A Song by Hunter Hayes

Hey old friend, it's me, someone you used to know. It's so strange to me, how we don't even know each other anymore. At least, not the way we used to. Now the only knowledge of each other we have is the superficial things we post online.

I hate the way our friendship ended. It was sad, dramatic, and we both got hurt. Neither of us gave the other the respect we both deserved. We said things that we couldn't take back, and nobody was benefiting from the way we were treating each other. We stopped being friends long before the final blow hit us.

I know it was for the best, that we were better off walking away fro each other. But sometimes I miss it. Sometimes I'll be scrolling through Facebook or Twitter and see something that we used to laugh about and I think about sending it to you. But I don't. It's been too long. I can't even remember our last conversation.

I miss you. I miss laughing with you. I miss our endless inside jokes that were the product of the many years of friendship we shared. We were a blast in a glass. I miss having you around. You are so positive, a people pleaser, with a strong mind and a true heart of gold.

I thought you would be one of my forever friends. We were supposed to have those long FaceTime calls from our dorm rooms on distant campuses. We were supposed to be at each other's weddings. Then our kids were going to be friends and make as many happy, silly memories as we did.

I guess that just wasn't in the stars for us. It's been hard, but I've accepted it. The universe is an unpredictable and mysterious force. If our paths are meant to cross again, I have faith that they will. Until then, I can only hope to God that you're doing alright, that you find your forever friends, and that they realize how lucky they are to have someone like you in their life.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
