5 Things Your Best Friend Will Text You When It's An SOS

There's really nothing like a good old fashioned scapegoat when you're stuck in an awkward/unfavorable situation and you really just need someone to get you out of it. That's what best friends are for. These are some prime texts that your best-friend might send you if you're caught in a weird situation and you GOTTA BLAST!

"hey i'm really sick can you come home"

Ahhh. The ole' "I'm sick I need you to come home" text works like a charm every time. When you're caught in an awkward situation and your best friend texts you a fake excuse, this one will surely do it. No one wants to imagine barf, germs, and blood, and- yeah, you get it. Gross. (They'll probably think so too)

"you haven't fed Max today and he won't stop barking"

I just laughed as I typed this one out because as stupid as this seems, I've used it before. And my friend didn't even have a dog named Max. But, what the other person doesn't know won't hurt them. You can interchange the name or animal of this one and it won't make much of a difference, it all works the same. A fake cat or dog to take the cake is a pretty good way to skrrt skrrt before you get hrt hrt. Or even a pet fish if you're feeling extra bold. "You haven't changed Nemo's water bowl today and he's swimming in his own feces please come home." Classic.

"omg someone just broke in our door room you have to come home"

Faking a robbery via dorm room might not be the best way to get your friend out of an uncomfy situation, but hey, it works. You gotta do what you gotta do I guess. This is slightly awful but also completely hilarious because it's REAL. Like, my friend has done this before. Don't even ask me how this was thought up, just know it happened. Awkward situation with a boy comes along and next thing you know, your dorm room is being robbed (not really) but yeah. This one is a bit extreme, but it works ladies.

"me and ____ just broke up i need you"

The fake-boyfriend breakup text is the perfect opportunity to slide your way out the door. Boys will never argue this one. Why? Mainly because as soon as you mention female emotions, they will run in the opposite direction. Not really, but more than likely they won't ask any questions. Simply because they don't want the drama. Trust me, if you play if off like your best friend is a mess, he won't want to help pick up the pieces. Most boys will run far from any type of feeling, while you {physically run} and do the same, but just out the door.

Girls - 1, Boys - 0. We're just so much smarter than you think ;)

"i can't believe you did this. we need to talk, NOW."

Your best-friend pretending to be mad at you in order to help you leave a situation is slightly psychotic but also brilliant. The fake "panic" will set in, you'll frantically rush to leave, and the person with you will probably not stop you from doing so. Boom. Freedom. Yes, we girls are the most extra humans on this planet. But honestly, we're the most innovative, too. Obviously.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
