If You're Lucky Enough To Have A Savage Best Friend Then You Know These 5 Things

No friend of mine would EVER food shame me.

If You're Lucky Enough To Have A Savage Best Friend Then You Know These 5 Things

We all have friends we hang out with, some people are just acquaintances, and some people we just tolerate. However, there are those few gems we hold dear to our heart that just get us.

It could be your sibling, your friend from kindergarten, your dog, or even your mom. Whoever it is, your best friend is in your life for a reason and hopefully has made you pee your pants laughing at one point or another.

There are many arguments as to what makes someone a best friend; however, I believe there are a few things that are extremely important when it comes to what makes someone ‘your person’. Here is a list of five things that make a savage best friend.

1. Encourage their food addictions

If you care about me then you support my Dominos addiction. No friend of mine would EVER food shame me. Do you like donuts? Honey, you deserve one. I support your investment in Krispy Kreme so hard.

2. Text them your random thoughts

It’s 3 o’clock in the morning…you bet your a** I want to hear about your horrible startup company idea about holographic dog collars. If I haven’t talked to you in forever and I text you a random meme with no context, this friendship is for life.

3. Only I Can Make Fun Of You

We should all be nice to our friends but we must give our best friends a hard time. It keeps us humble when our heads get a bit too big. However, if someone other than me makes fun of that embarrassing moment you had on New Year’s, all hell will break loose and that person better sleep with one eye open

4. You don’t judge them

This one is quite obvious. If your friend judges you based on your actions or your beliefs then you may want to reconsider being friends with them. You decided to transfer schools? They are lucky to have you! You’re converting to Judaism? Mazel Tov!

You’re moving to a really sketchy area? I’ll help you padlock your door! You hooked up with some guy I don’t know? Send me a pic and let me know if he has any friends! Support your friends, even if you don’t support their situation. BOOM.

5. You’ve got their back…always

Chase broke up with Susie, which means you better be at her apartment in five minutes with Ben and Jerry’s and some god damn John Hughes’ movies. A good friend comforts you but a best friend will plot the mysterious disappearance of the person who hurt you.

If they aren’t there to help you draft six text messages and do some FBI level stalking with you, are you even best friends?

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
