The 8 Types Of People That Make Up Your Friend Group

They can make stubbing their toe a production to rival a novella.

In life there are many types of cliques: the athletes, the bookworms, the geniuses, the loner, and the list could go on infinitely. In each of these cliques, there are different types of people and these are their stories. See if you can find yourself!

1. Positive Polly

This friend is always doing their best to spread happiness, love, and rainbows. They rarely have a bad thing to say about anyone and when they do, it's probably needed. Their goal in life is to change the world, whether it be by working with people or animals. But, most of all, they are the best person to go to when you need a shoulder to lean on or a bit of advice.

2.The Drama Queen

They can make an accident, like stubbing their toe, into a production that rivals the content quality of a novella. Not to say that sometimes things don't require tears, they love looking their best and like to tell everyone about the stupid people at their job on social media. No matter the amount of drama they bring into your life you love them because they will and have offered to beat someone up for you if you have been wronged.

3. The Country One

You never see this person because they wear camouflage so often (sorry, that was a bad pun). They were part of FFA in high school and love their truck. They love country music and every time music is needed they offer and are quickly turned down. Don't worry though, they'll always be there to a shoulder to cry on or if you just need someone to talk to.

4. The Evil Genius

They always had A's, but they knew not to tell everyone, which is why you're friends. This person scares me. Not because they have a fear-striking outward appearance, but because you know that if they really wanted to they have enough knowledge to, if they really wanted to, make the world implode. They'll probably be the first to come up with an epic revenge plan if needed.

5. Van Gogh

This is the artist. They could take a pile of garbage and make it into a masterpiece. No matter the medium they always dominate. You wish you could have their artistic ability. Half their clothes have paint on them and when you point it out they'll probably not even know how that got there.

6. Glitz and Glam

They love everything pink and sparkly. If it glimmers, she wants it. They are the princess and they know it. They still work for what they want. They always have their hair and makeup done to perfection and get countless compliments. Basically, they make you and everyone else look like a shrub...all the time. Their expertise is knowing who did what, when, and where, this makes them the best person to go to to get info.

7. ???

This person can't have title because they are all over the place. They are very easily distracted and sometimes walk in front of cars. Their life has been saved more than once by a random person because they were simply not paying attention. They dabble in a little bit of everything and can never make up their mind, but they are always the first person to crack a joke or make a fool of themselves to cheer someone up.

8. The Bonus Friend!!

The random person that you don't know where along the line that they became part of the friend group. They just kind of appeared one day and you didn't even realize that they weren't there, to begin with. But, whatever, the more friends, the merrier!

Did you find all your friends? Did you find yourself? If not, its okay, that just means you are unique. The point here was that even though everyone is different, in a way, we all are the same.

A Letter To My Best Friend On Valentine's Day

Because you are my ultimate Valentine.

To my beautiful best friend,

Warning: This letter is about to get extremely cheesy. I am talking four cheese lasagna cheesy. But no one deserves a love letter like this more than you do.

This Valentine’s Day, I want to express my love for you. On this wondrous occasion with which most people express their love to their significant other, I want to tell you, my best friend, how much I cherish our friendship.

You are the ultimate love of my life. Boys have come and gone but you remain a constant; for that I am grateful. You have been there for me when my family could not be; for that I am grateful. You have been my backbone, my rock, and all those other clichés people use to describe the people they care about, and yet you have been so much more than that as well; for that I am grateful.

All my love this Valentine’s Day goes out to you, my friend, because you do not receive it enough. You have picked me up out of the dirt, brushed me off, and kissed my wounds more times than I can count, and I will never be able to thank you enough for that, but I am sure am going to try.

Thank you for the midnight cries. Thank you for the midnight laughs. Thank you for ordering way too much food with me and still just eating it all. Thank you for the advice, both solicited and unsolicited. Thank you for telling me what I need to hear, even when it isn’t what I want to hear. Thank you for the silly pictures. Thank you for the stupid inside jokes. Thank you for making bad decisions with me. Thank you for laughing with me and laughing at me. Thank you for the endless memories.

More than anything, I want you to know that I love you. I love you. You are the family I get to choose, the one I go to when I have nowhere else to turn. You are the one I know I can always run to, whether we saw each other yesterday or haven’t seen each other in a year. You have played a part in molding who I am as a person, and I am so grateful for having such an amazing person affecting my life in such a positive way.

With all the love in my heart,

Your friend

To The Friends I Can Be Myself Around

An open letter to those whose friendships I value more than a pint of Graeter's ice cream.


There are those friends I love and care about deeply, but cannot be my true self around. Someone asked me before, "How can you call someone your friend if you can't be yourself around them?" I don't change myself to accommodate them or act in a manner unnatural to me — I just don't show them some sides of me. Growing up, some of my friends did not understand how I could ever want to write books or how I could love reading so much, so I learned at a young age to keep that side of me to myself. And yes, those are important parts of me, but my friends who did not understand it did accept it, and that was enough. Some thought it bizarre and humorous I love Celtic instrumental music or said some hurtful things about what I love that I realize now wasn't okay. But at the end of the day, there is love between us and common ground where I just remember to not mention some things.

Then there are those friends I can be my complete, unapologetic, authentic self with. The ones who support and encourage you to chase your dreams, even if they don't understand them. The ones who you can cry to about something silly, say whatever is on your mind without regretting it, and who thinks it's preposterous you refuse to fart in their presence because your other friends would give you crap for it (pun intended, and also true story). The ones you stay up late into the night talking about philosophy and crushes until your voices begin to rasp. The ones who are the closest to your heart.

I want to say thank you to these brilliant, caring, beautiful friends, new and old. Your love and support has helped me at all times, through the good and the bad and the boring. I only hope to be the same friend to you, to be open-minded, supportive, and enthusiastic. I believe it is important to cultivate a wide range of friends and support, but many of the friendships I mention earlier will most likely only be kept alive through memories; ours will last many lives to come. I look forward to growing old with you all and growing together.
