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).

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
