To My Best Friend On Her Birthday

I thank God for the day you came to this world.

To My Best Friend On Her Birthday
Daenne Dolce

Dear best friend,

I can’t believe you are already this old! I will certainly buy you a bright color can for your big day. See, this is exactly how we greet each other (it’s all love).

I was thinking of a great way to wish you a happy birthday while telling the world how awesome you are, so I decided why not write you an open letter? When we met three years ago, we were just lab buddies. Who would have thought that I would be writing you an open (cheesy) letter today? That semester we met, there were many, but only us two stick together. Now I am asking myself where were you those other 19 years of my life, how did I live without you? Since we met you have been here for me and have supported me on all the important events of my life. You have never missed a birthday, any important celebration, or my crazy girls’ nights. You've always been there when I need to vent even at 3 am, to help me pick outfits, to help me make hard decisions, and most of all to support me no matter what. I knew you were the best, but this confirmed it.

Me @ 11pm: so, Bestie this happened... and the only thing that would make me feel better is Denny's (oh yes I love Denny's).

Bestie: I'm sorry to hear that, but did you want to go the one in Midtown or the one by your house?

Me: by my house.

Bestie: OK, be there in 25 minutes.

Me: I love you, I'm in my PJs, I'm not changing.

Bestie: I love you more, and same.

There have been so many of these moments and of course laughter; I feel like I don’t thank you enough for our relafrienship (relafrienship in my life dictionary = a friendship which is more like a relationship) and for dealing with me daily. I still don’t know how you do it. So, on your birthday I would like to thank you for being an amazing best friend and most importantly my go to girl! I am very grateful for having you in my life; I can't imagine one without you. I thank God for the day I met you.

I must say I am very proud of you! You already know that “mama” is always proud, but I had to point that out. I’ve seen you grow into a fine young lady( not to say old), we have struggled together and I have seen you overcome them all. I don’t say it often enough, but Bestie I am proud of all your past and most recent (you know which one wink wink) accomplishments. I am confident that you will be going places.

I am very sad that I am not physically in Miami to celebrate your 23rd birthday with you. If I could I would be there and you know it. I am just happy that I could help you plan your celebration. I hope to you get to have fun; I know that nothing is the same without me (wink, wink) but please make the best out of it and WE SHALL CELEBRATE WHEN I GET HOME EVEN IF IT’LL BE MONTHS LATER.

I have so many pics I could post from our relafriendship and so much I want to say, but I think these should do.


I wish you the best; I can't wait to see what the future hold for you. I pray that God continue to bless you with many more years to come.

I love you to the moon and back!

A lot of people don't have a best-friend, but I am blessed with two amazing souls (readers you will learn about the other one on another article).

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.
