Things You Can Do With Your Best Friend

4 Things I Do With My Best Friends

Everyone loves their best friends since these are the people who you can go to for anything from cookie dough and a movie or just a good cry because either way we love our best friends.


Best friends are the types of people you can always count on for whatever you need. I have been so blessed in my life to have many people in different stages of my life be my best friend and some stay constant through it all. A best friend allows you to be one hundred percent yourself no matter what that looks like to you.

1. Who doesn't love a good dance party?

When it has been a long day you just got to dance it out even if you are like me and can't dance. Being able to not care what you look like and just dance it out feels so good. Whether it is a good old classic like Living on a Prayer or a newer bop like Thank You Next it is always an amazing memory to make when you dance with a friend.Who else would you rather dance with than your best friend? The best of friends will act a foul and dance along side you all the time!!

2. Making your best friend watch your favorite movie with you over and over and over again.

As my closest friends know Coco holds a special place in my heart. This movie has played over and over at my house since the day it came out. Even when I go to a friend's house they are kind enough to let me watch it for the thousandth time. A real friend will sit through a movie they have watched with you too many times and still laugh , smile , and even shed a tear a time or two.

3. Baking cookies with your best friend is one of the best ways to past time.

As my lifelong gal pals, Emily and Leah know all to well-making cookies is a good old tradition of friendship. There is nothing that makes friends closer than baking cookies or in my case eating most of the cookie dough. Something about the chocolate chip cookies in the oven gives me the happiest feeling but its even better when the warm cookie get out of the oven. These sweet treats can mend friendships, heal old wounds, and give out unconditional laughter to all. Baking cookies is so much more than just that it is how a friendship thrives.

4. Singing karaoke is a staple in friendships.

Singing is the go-to activity for me and my buddies. It could be in the car on the way to get coffee or in the house pretending to put on a mini concert. The go to soundtrack goes from Moana to Don't Stop Believing but whatever song it is we always sing a bit too loud. The performance may not be the best quality musically but you will never have a better time. Just sing your heart out and act like nobody is watching!

To My Best Friend Who Taught Me What True Friendship Is, I Can't Thank You Enough

"To the person who will love you endlessly, love her with kindness and understanding."

Dear Best Friend,

You have been a part of my life for quite some time now. You have seen my good, bad, and ugly sides and have stuck by my side through it all. I don't know if I could ever find the words to truly thank you for everything your friendship has given me, but I am definitely going to try.

Our lives have taken some twist and turn these past few years, but we have stayed strong through it all.

Thank you for judging me just the right amount.

Throughout our friendship, I have made some very questionable decisions. A lot of people would say "thanks for never judging me," but I feel like everyone needs a best friend who's going to tell them how it is, to tell them when they are about to make a bad decision or how to avoid something worse from happening. You have always told me how it is (even when I don't always want to hear it), but I know that I can come to you whenever I need someone to set me straight.

You're always down to do nothing with me.

I think that you are the one person that I can call up to hang out and do absolutely nothing with and have a good time. From the nights sitting in and playing card games to ordering Chinese food and watching an entire Netflix series while I dance around with the cat: I know that we could do anything, and nothing together and it would be fun.

But also, you're always down to get lit with me.

I swear one day we will be two old moms at a bar drinking vodka crans and laughing about the stupid shit our husbands and children do. You're always down to go out and have a good time. Even if everyone else we're with is miserable, we find a way to laugh at ourselves.

You are one of the few constant things in my life.

I've lost a lot of friends in my life, but you have stayed by my side through everything. I can't remember the last time we actually fought about anything, but even when we do we can't stay mad at each other for more than a day. I know we will be in each other's lives until we literally keel over.

I want you yo know that you're the strongest person I know.

You've dealt with things that not many people go through ever in their life. You have always been so mature, and you handle everything with grace. You inspire me every day with your goals and successes and I am so proud of you and all of your accomplishments.

Above all else, you deserve the world.

It's so easy to get caught up in your own mind and think that you deserve the things that happen to you, but please know that the only thing you deserve is happiness. Please settle for nothing short of that. It may take a bit to find your happiness, but I will be there every step of the way. You're a remarkable human being, and I want nothing but the best for you.

To the person who will hold your heart someday, please do not break it. To the person who may wrong you, you will regret it forever. To the person who will love you endlessly, love her with kindness and understanding.

You, my best friend, future bridesmaid, godmother of my children, the person to bail me out of jail, the one who lets me cry on their couch for twelve hours,

I love you.

I will cherish our friendship forever. Thank you for being you.

Love always,

Your best friend.

Dear Fellas, Consistency & Communication Is All We Ask For

So, why aren't we getting the same?


Dear fellas (who fall under this category of course),

As you can tell from my title, it's time to talk about the problems with MOST guys in today's generation. This article isn't meant to bash all of you, but most of you need a reality check when it comes to. I'll start with this:

It's really annoying when most of you guys start a good conversation with us and then it eventually dies out because you lose interest in us. You even label things as "the talking stage," which to this day, I still don't understand the purpose of that. You come in our messages and go for long periods of time, only to message us weeks later like nothing happened. The excuses are tiring and pathetic, yet you claim that you care and you were just busy with work/school.

What I do know, is that if you actually cared about someone, you would be invested in that person and not disappear. We shouldn't always have to be the ones to triple text and make an effort. Once we find our self-worth, its hard to settle for less at this point. If you don't feel the same way, please communicate with us and let us know. There's one thing people hate and that's wasting precious time. If you do "like us," be consistent. We don't appreciate the half-of-everything type.

Life is short and it's time to grow up.

Also, notice how I keep saying "most" of you guys. However, if you feel offended by this article, it's probably you who needs to change.

Thank you for coming to my unofficial TED Talk!
