The 16 Thank-Yous My Best Guy Friend Deserves

The stereotype that men and women can't be friends, is hilariously untrue to me.

The 16 Thank-Yous My Best Guy Friend Deserves
McKenna Tunney

Thank you.

I feel that I can speak for most people when saying finding a genuine friend of the opposite sex can be hard to come by. If you get yourself one of those, don't let them go.

I knew since the first day I met you that you'd be stuck with me for life.

I look back and cry laughing at all the memories that we've made thus far, and I truly can't wait for all the ridiculous mems to come. Don't know what I would do without your killer dance moves and amazing/horrible taste in music.

My best guy friend is someone that I can truly confine everything in, and he is able to give me different perspectives that other girlfriends may not be able to give me. I probably don't say it enough for how grateful I am for that kind of friendship, love you kiddo.

So, thank you for:

1. Constantly looking out for me, in every single aspect of life.

2. Calling me on my shit.

3. Thank you for having interventions with me when I'm doubting myself, specifically banging on my door -- literally and physically lifting me up, to keep pushing on.

4. Being an amazing male role model in my life, when I may not have any others to look towards.

5. Bringing to my recognition that I am beautiful inside and out.

6. Literally dropping everything to be a shoulder to cry on.

7. Keeping my faith alive in the good intentions of men.

8. Not being afraid of what people think.

9. Being there for me physically and mentally when I don't want to be alone, and crashing on the couch and those long facetime seshes.

10. Being able to have hilariously stupid conversations, that can then turn to serious life-altering 6-hour conversations.

11. Taking on the role of the "go-to fake boyfriend at the bar."

12. Getting frustrated with me when I don't see my own potential.

13. Valuing and appreciating the advice I can give to you.

14. Having such an amazing work ethic and drive that keeps me inspired and motivated constantly.

15. Those killer hugs.

16. Being able to make me laugh the hardest I've ever laughed.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
