The Few Things We Forget To Thank Our Best Friends For

A simple "thank you" will never be enough.

The Few Things We Forget To Thank Our Best Friends For

She's your go-to gal, your tear catcher, your outfit picker, your partner in crime, the one person who seems to get you when no one else does... she's your best friend. You have a million memories, thousands of inside jokes and hundreds of secrets. You honestly couldn't imagine not having her in your life. A close friend is truly a treasure found and sometimes we forget to thank our best friend for being that treasure you were lucky to stumble upon. Of course a simple thank you could never completely sum up everything you need to say.

Thank you for not saying I told you so.

Even though I know you told me a million times dating that guy was going to end up badly or that decision I made would end up the exact way you said it would.

Thank you for drying my tears.

Thank you for crying with me. I know you hate seeing me upset, especially from heart break, but thank you for being the first to say it will be OK and we will get through this

Thank you for the late night conversations.

Especially now that we are both away for school sometimes I just need my hometown BFF, no one gets it like you do.

Thank you for defending me.

People talk, especially in small towns. Thank you for not being afraid not stand up for me.

Thank you for being my voice of reason.

Sometimes I’m a tad ridiculous.

Thank you for the jam sessions in the car.

Somehow singing Fall Out Boy with the windows down can cure any bad mood.

Thank you for being ready for the screenshots.

And for always having the perfect response.

Thank you for the adventures.

Whether it’s a mini road trip, a late night trip to Sheetz or whatever crazy idea we have next I always have the best time with you.

Thank you for the laughs.

I’m still hoping to get that six pack from laughing so much

Thank you for calling me out.

Sometimes I think crazy things or don't act on the feelings I may have so thank you for not being afraid to tell me when I am wrong or I am being completely insane. Sometimes you are all I need to realize what I am doing.

Thank you for staying.

People come and go in our lives, but I am so thankful you were not one to go, and I am even more thankful that you are here to stay.

Most importantly, thank you for being you.

I couldn't imagine calling anyone else my best friend. You are an amazing young women who deserves nothing but the best.

Although we don’t get to talk as much as we'd like and life has become hectic for the both of us I know I can always count of her and when we are together it is like we haven’t missed a second. We have many adventures to come and I can't wait for the next crazy idea we come up with. You're the peanut to my butter, the star to my burst and the best to my friend, or however that goes.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

Wikimedia Commons

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
