Thank You For The Memories

Thank You For The Memories

Some people are temporary, no matter how much you come to love them.


We've all been there. We've all experienced the pain which comes from losing a friend or a significant other to life's bitter reality. Sometimes, the way our cards in life get stacked, lead to the unfortunate consequences of that person you've cared for and loved, to leave your life and never come back.

I know how much it sucks to have had this happened to you. I've lost best friends who I thought were going to be by my side for the rest of my life, and every time I think about our friendship I cannot help but feel a wave of emotion coming over me. Somehow, friendships fade, and conversations change to awkward silences. You sit there wondering what there is to talk about with the person you used to be able to say anything to, and that is when you realize, maybe its time to let that friendship go. This, unfortunately, happens not only with friends but with significant others as well. It always starts out perfect, you feel that connection between each other, and it seems as if nothing on this planet can tear the two of you apart. You think your soulmates. Yet, once again, life has a funny way of flipping things around, and your soulmate becomes a distant memory-someone who was merely a tourist in your life; temporary, and with only pictures commemorating their time with you.

As sad as these memories can be, and they are quite sad, it is important to note that everything in life really does happen for a reason. Every action and every decision we make in life has a cause and effect relationship, sometimes the results are wonderful, and sometimes they leave us empty inside. Do not let the loss of your friendships and relationships get your down. Note that these people were in your life for a reason, whether it was to brighten you up on dull, grey days, or to teach you what it is to love- never let the great memories leave your mind and be overshadowed by the sadness of losing those individuals. Be happy at the past you shared with these people, and know that if your friendship or relationship is meant to be, these people will appear once again in your life.

Time is a wonderfully stranger detail in our lives, and it works in ways we can never imagine. With time, we can heal our wounds, we can replace our memories, and hopefully, once again share conversation and laughter with those who we once lost.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

A series telling the true experiences of modern day college students.


Everyone tells you to prepare for the best years of your life.

They tell you to prepare for all of the new challenges and new opportunities.

They say that you will meet your future people in college.

What they don't tell you is how much it will hurt.

Seeing old friends disappear because you are no longer home.

Watching your grades fall because the class is too difficult to pass.

Hearing and witnessing your family struggle and you aren't able to be with them.

Seeing all of the adventures that others are going on while you are stuck in your dorm room with the same stack of papers you have been trying to finish for three days now.

They don't tell you how difficult the transition will be.

They especially don't tell you how hard it is to live with someone.

The best of friends can live together and then grow to hate each other.

Complete strangers will move in and never speak.

You'll find friends that are simply just your "writing friend" or "band friend".

Many of the labels from high school can sometimes stick around.

If you're not out drinking or clubbing, then people think you don't have a life.

College is great, but don't think that it will be easy.

You have to make things easy in order for things to happen.

You can't just go around doing whatever and expect things to work out.

It takes time and it takes commitment to succeed in life, and in college.

The best way to deal with it all, find someone!

Find someone that you can get coffee with and watch sports with.

Find someone to eat dinner and lunch with.

Find someone to study religion and math before the next test.

Find someone!

Find your someone, a friend or someone special, to help you make it through everything that life throws at you.

If I had that someone I might have been better off my first year.
