An Open Letter To My Forever Friends, Thanks For Being My Constant Support

The rarest of all friends; I love you three.

My dad always told me that if you can count how many friends you have, on one hand, you're lucky. When I was younger, I didn't understand what he meant by this. But isn't it great to have tons of friends? I asked myself. I knew my dad was being honest with me, but for a long time, his words perplexed me.

Now, at this point in my early adulthood, I completely understand this little phrase- and I appreciate its truth every day.

College brings all sorts of things to the table. Relationships at home change, past friendships linger or remain, and life itself feels different, but in a good way.

If you go halfway through college with a few unbelievable childhood friends that you can count on one hand, I'd say you're very lucky, and I think my dad would agree. Lucky for me, I consider these few my very best friends.

Through the ups and downs, we have each other's backs. Whether it be our worst days or our best, we constantly lift each other up and feel comforted knowing that we have one another.

Your forever are the people that you're comfortable enough to call at three am on a Tuesday, or the ones who will send cookies to your school library when you're stressing over finals (thanks, Ru.); they're the people you can tell anything to, because they often understand you better than you understand yourself, and they're the ones that can make you laugh even on the hardest of days.

The appreciation I feel for these three is rare and indescribable, and that's one of the many things that makes our friendship so special.

To my forever friends, this one is for you. Thank you for being a constant support system and source of happiness in my life. Without you, my laughs would not be as loud, and my heart would not be half as full. Love you to pieces, girls.

10 Things Someone Who Grew Up In A Private School Knows

The 10 things that every private school-goer knows all too well.

1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten


Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.
