I was the girl growing up who used to be social and then turned into one of the most shy people out there. I had my go to group in high school like everyone did but once college was in sight I worried it would be difficult to find someone to connect with.

Turns out, I found you within the first month. It wasn't through those activities that the campus held for us incoming students to connect with one another. No, I met you in one of my classes.

Every friendship starts out slow but ours really didn't. Between going to Taco Bell or Chipotle for food after class, all those class papers, those "study/homework" session in the floor lounge, or those nights that we'd crash in each other's room, we clicked instantly.

I never imagined that I'd find a friend like you; someone who could make every single day an adventure even in the smallest of ways. You make me laugh in ways I hadn't in awhile.

This one's to my squeaks.

1) Thank you for making so many small moments have a huge impact on me.

The smallest and most stupid comments that we make daily will forever be etched into my mind as some of the best moments of my life.

2) Thank you for helping me stay on top of things.

I always say that I want to get things done but a majority of the time it's not until you start doing your work or scold me for procrastinating that I'll finally get it started.

3) Thank you for always telling me the truth.

You have listened to every stupid little story or problem that I have and you always tell me when I'm being ridiculous or when I"m right on the nose.

4) Thank you for being such an amazing roommate.

We both have our own horror stories but when we moved in together we evened each other out. Yes, we are both messy but we both know when to clean. Even though you don't pay attention to shows or movies, I enjoy having you to talk to about them anyway. I am happy to be able to say my best friend is my roommate.

5) Thank you for thinking of me.

Even if it's as small as picking up a coffee for me when I never asked, it's nice to know that you think of me for the little things.

6) Thank you for knowing when something is wrong with me.

Even if it's something small, you sense it before I do and always find a way to cheer me up or take my mind off of it.

7) Thank you for supporting my decisions.

Through all the tears and anger and confusion, you stood by me and helped me work out the choice to transfer to chase my dream. Even though I am going to be leaving you, you still helped me make the decision for myself.

8) Thank you for facing problems with me.

As you said, it takes two to screw things up and there are three of us. No matter the problem, I always know I can look over and see you there ready to fight it with me.

9) Thank you for being just as weird as I am and enjoying every minute of it.

Being able to make stupid comments, sing at the top of our lungs, whip my head to make me look like a giraffe, or even quoting every movie or show, you don't hesitate to love it just as much as me.

10) Thank you for forgiving me and being patient when we argue.

Even though it doesn't happen often, we do have those moments where we are at each other's throats but we'll always be able to laugh it off later by showing each other a duck meme.

11) Thank you for all the times we ordered in, the parties, cab rides, and heart to hearts.

You've been by my side through the embarrassing times and we helped each other through the awkward ones. I wouldn't want to share my random life conversations and epiphanies with anyone else.

12) Thank you for dealing with me when I'm grumpy.

I know I'm not the most enjoyable person when I'm tired or hungry or even just having a tough day in general but you always agree to watch what I want, play with my hair, or cuddle with me when I ask.

13) Thank you for liking and disliking the same things as me.

Not sure what I would do if we weren't the same person. It's nice having you to share all my food and television with.

14) Thank you for letting our friendship have a solid foundation over movies, comedy stand ups, and television shows.

"Your brain has a thick candy shell." "Well... your brain has the... shell on it." "Are you talking?"

"The meal isn't over when I'm full. The meal is over when I hate myself."

McGarret and McDavid are the same person, really.

15) Thanks for letting me know that you still love me even when I push your buttons.

No explanation needed.

16) Thank you for putting up with my needy times.

Whether we're both complaining about needing to be fed or just needing attention, you give it to me anyways.

17) Thank you for dealing with my sarcasm and dishing it right back.

Honestly not sure we would be friends if one of us was a sensitive person.

18) Thank you for taking weird pictures with me.

You're always willing to take a picture with me or allow me to capture ridiculous videos of you. Not sure what I would do without that type of entertainment on hand.

19) Thank you for being terrible at replying.

This may seem like an oddball but your spaced out replies allow me to text you multiple times in a row and send you ridiculous bitmoji's until I get your attention.

20) Thank you for letting me tag you in endless posts on Facebook.

What would I do without you enjoying every single thing I tag you? Although I do feel offended when you don't inform me you've looked at it.

21) Thank you for being you.

I honestly cannot thank you enough for everything that you have done for me in such a short period of time. You are one of the best people and most important people to me.

You're definitely someone that I hope stays in my life. I look forward to knowing that most of the plans we make for the future will actually happen (I saw most because life happens). I'm going to miss you like crazy come the end of the school year but I plan on making many visits and thanks to FaceTime you'll never miss my face. I love you, Squeaks and I look forward to being able to thank you for the same things years from now but including the 21+ version.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

For Your Best Girl Friend, Dump Your Boyfriend... I'm Bored

The best things about your girl friends.

47

Social media is so deceiving lately, always posting about relationship goals or get yourself a man like this. Honestly, I'm tired of it and why don't we hear more about our girls? LET'S BE REAL! It's hard to be absolutely yourself around a boy, for it takes some time to break down those walls and really get comfortable with each other.

Reflecting on my college life so far, All I can be really grateful for is my GIRLS! Here are the best things about having girlfriends!

1. NO TEXTING RULES!

There is always that unspoken rule or constant animosity when texting a boy. When it comes to girls, there are no rules. I always love waking up in the morning and texting my group chats to see who is either down for breakfast, a study session, or just to check in to make sure everyone is alive. You can text and little and as much as you want and not break a sweat.

2. Unconditional Love

Whenever I'm getting ready for a big interview or for a special event, I always look to my friends for approval. Not only do they know what's in my closet and may suggest a better clothing item they really care about putting my best foot forward and telling me if I look my best in whatever I choose to wear. Sometimes the truth is something people avoid to share because they are afraid to offend someone, but friends will love you no matter what and just want you to be happy.

3. Movie binge

I always love Friday nights. My friends and I have made little traditions of gaining out to dinner, getting our favorite snacks, and picking a movie or Netflix show to binge on. Usually, we all go off topic and get deep into conversation and dance around like complete fools, but these are the memories I will cherish the most about college.

4. Girls squads

Personally, I feel more confident when I am surrounded by my friends whoever we go out to have fun. When you share a common interest of either singing as loud as you can taking a good car ride or just need a dance partner that you can bust a move on the dance floor, having your friends by your side makes every night that much more fun.

5. The good and the bad

It would be a fairytale if friendships were always peaches, but reality is... girls have their fights. Sometimes usually it always surrounds little things because we spend so much time together. The important thing about having healthy friendships is being open and communicate how you feel. Usually, little things get resolved and life moves on. If it is not a fight between each other your friends are there for you when your down or just not feeling your best. We need each other through college to stay and finish strong.

6. The best side kick

Maybe it is just me, but I love when my friends are down for anything like going shopping, getting food, going to the gym, and getting nails done. My friends and I are so close you would think we are related and I am so happy to have such great gals in my life that push me to be the best person I can be!
