"A good friend is like a four-leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have."-Irish Proverb

Finding a person that is a true friend takes time, and effort and can be a challenge for some people. Not because there aren't amazing people out there, but because the truth of the matter is that people are scared to be their true, authentic selves. So, when you've found that person, don't let them go and know that they are rare.

Here's a list of ten things that will help you know if you've found your true bestie.

1. They trust you

Whats a friendship, well any relationship, really. What do you have if you don't have trust?

2. They will call you out on any BS.

3. Distance and time don't mean anything

You can handle being apart for months at a time, and still when you're together again, it seems like no time has passed

4. They know you have flaws, but love you anyways.

And will always love you, despite those things.

5. They're a hype man (or woman) when they need to be

And, they can also be a shoulder to cry on when needed as well.

6.  They show you all of themselves

And you do the same, there's no faking it with them, even the most embarassing stuff.

7. They push you to be the best versions of yourself

From taking a risk to making a hard decision, everyone needs a little push occasionally. They encourage you to take a leap, and they pull you back should you start to stumble. They see your true potential, and they want you to live that.

8. They might fight you

But don't worry, it's because they want you to be your absolute best. True friends make you realize that you screwed up, but they would love to help you create a new outcome.

9. They won't let you settle.

Especially with that ex who was no good for you to begin with.

10. You can speak truth to each other.

You don't have to tiptoe around a situation, you can say exactly what's on your mind to her face. You can both say your opinion without being offended while valuing what the other person has to say.

11. You're apart of each others future

You can't imagine a time without them in your life.

12. They've seen you at your absolute worst and still love you

No questions, No judgements.

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!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
