Quality Over Quantity In Friendships

Cut off the toxic friendships that are not benefitting your life.

Quality Over Quantity In Friendships

I cannot tell you the number of times I have heard the phrase "quality over quantity." I wish my past self would have taken that advice because it would have saved me a lot of heartache and challenging times throughout high school. Sometimes I still have to remind myself how important it is to have true friendships.

In high school, I was on the cheer team and everything was all about popularity. How many people did you know? How many people knew you? Were you a leader or a follower? I had multiple different groups of friends, but eventually, I realized that within all of those friends groups, there were very few people who ever actually acted like a friend to me. Friendships take effort and only work if both people put energy into the relationship. Your friends should lift you up, make you a better person and just make your life better overall. My best friend, Olivia, has been number one fan since day one and I could not be more thankful for her.

Olivia and I met when we were in third grade and were attached at the hip growing up. Unfortunately, we both moved several times, which was scary because we didn't know if we would remain friends. The distance was nothing but beneficial for our friendship; we became closer and closer the farther and farther we got. Not seeing each other every single day was tough at first, but now when we do get the opportunity to see each other, it is that much more special. We could talk on the phone for hours on end just catching up with each other; one phone call from her can brighten up my entire week. Writing this brief article reminded me why I love Olivia so much and why I'm so grateful to have her in my life; looks like I have a phone call to make!

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!
