A Thank You Letter To My Forever Friend

The future is uncertain, but there is one thing I know for sure: you will always be my friend.

A Thank You Letter To My Forever Friend
Katelynn Erickson

To my forever friend,

As we get older and begin to go our separate ways, I just wanted to say thank you. You have managed to be the best friend anyone could have while still being busy with and creating your own life. I'm glad that I get to be a part of it and I hope you're glad to be a part of mine. Life can become overwhelming and busy and I don't always take time to say thank you for all you do, so here it is:

Thanks for making me more than just a convenient friend. You don't just talk to me or hang out with me when there is nobody else around. You make me a priority in your life and that's an important aspect of friendships.

You are always encouraging. When something is getting me down and I don't think I am capable of doing something, you don't typically agree with me. You tell me to suck it up. Okay, maybe you don't word it quite like that, but you always push me to challenge myself and make myself better.

You usually know what's best for me. You know me better than I know myself sometimes, so whenever I need to make a tough decision I come to you. You give advice that is always in my best interest.

We can go days or even weeks without talking, and nothing changes. When we get caught up in our busy lives, we sometimes don't have the chance to talk much. Whether we go days, weeks, or even months without talking, we always pick up where we left off. I love that about our friendship. I don't like having to worry about losing a friend because I have things to take care of, so thank you for that.

You don't get sick of me. The days that we talk nonstop back to back, you somehow manage not to get sick of my annoying habits or horrible jokes. I don't know how you do it, but you do. That's a real friend right there.

You're always there for me. You genuinely care; that's unique. Whether is crying over something that went wrong in my life or celebrating my accomplishments, you never miss it. If I need you, you always make the time for me and you always will. That does not go unnoticed, believe me.

You laugh at my horrible jokes. Sometime, you even make horrible jokes with me. Okay, lets be honest...You ALWAYS make horrible jokes with me. We're the funniest people that we know. Even when you don't think I'm funny, you pretend to--Thanks, pal.

The future always brings uncertainty. Who will we marry? Where will we live? Will we have kids? What kind of jobs will we have? There is one thing that I know for certain: you will always be my friend. This isn't just a spur of the moment thing, it's a life time thing. Thank you again for all that you do, friend. I can't wait to see where life takes our friendship.

Love you forever,

Your forever friend.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
