The Advantages Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

A forever friend is only a phone call away.

The Advantages Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

Having a long distance best friend is hard. Not seeing your each other at school every day or grabbing brunch on the weekends is difficult. Staying up to date with your best friend's life is a full-time job. Face time, phone calls, and text messages can only go so far. It takes time, effort, and a whole lot of love. Among all the hardships of having a long distance best friend, there are certinly some pros.

1. You always have an unbiased opinion.

Since you and your best friend don't live near each other, you always have someone to call to get a quick unbiased opinion from. Since they aren't involved with the people near to you, you can always count on them to tell it like it is one hundred percent of the time. Need to vent about something that happen at school, they are the best listeners. Open ears and an unbiased opinion are only a phone call away.

2. FaceTime dates are the best.

Since you can't see each other everyday, face time dates are a big deal... and I mean a BIG DEAL. Minutes turn into hours, and before you know it you are both instantly caught up on each others lives. Plus seeing their face really helps to feel conected while you're hundreds of miles away.

3. You always have something to look forward to.

Whatever you're going through, you always have something to look forward to. The next time you visit your best friend is always right around the corner. Whether is next year or next week, the thought of seeing your best friend makes everything better. Some breaks are longer than others, but once the time apart passes, the time together is well worth it.

4. It's a holiday when they visit.

The whole world stops when the come to visit. It's declared a national holiday in you're book. Shopping, coffee dates, and showing them all the new spots. No expense is spaired when you're best friend comes to visit.

5. The distance makes you stronger.

Having a long distance best friend is hard, but so worth it. The distance makes you stronger, and you grow even closer. You cherish the time you have together more, and you never take a phone call for granted. If you can make it through being best friend while apart, you know you will be best friends forever.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
