To my friends in it for the long run,

Time sure does fly when you're having fun, doesn't it? Life goes so quick that it never lets you press pause and that can be scary. But, one thing is does give you are friends that can be your rock and really are your family. So, here's to you my friends. Thank you, for everything.

Yeah, it really has been over 10 years since we all formed this deep connection that would span for so long. I remember like it was yesterday being in 7th grade just laughing and having middle school drama. The drama was not fun, but being with all of you has been. Going to birthday parties, halloween, Christmas, and other holidays we have spent together over the years. I wouldn't trade those memories for anything.

Remember sitting at lunch together and thinking that we will never grow up? I don't think we have and I know you guys won't and that's ok. Please never change who you are, because nothing is worse than drifting into something you aren't and I will remind you of that.

There were some bad time, but I try not to think about those. The times when we cried together, weren't really on speaking terms with a few of you. But, somehow we all gravitate back to one another. We kissed and made up. That's what friends do, right? Even through the roughest of times we never ever forgot how much we loved each other and would do anything for.

Going to separate colleges and going through different paths of life didn't change anything either. We made new memories together even as we have gotten older and older. We have also made new friends, but we never forgot who our family was. Those new friends are now a part of our family. I think they are, maybe not to them but if they read this they know now.

To all of you that have been there for me, helped me through life, and have been the best friends anyone could ever ask for. Thank you. One day there will come a time when we are truly separated and life has taken us to different journey's, but never forget what we have built.

I look forward to all the new memories that will create and they will be exciting. You all are my family and I will never leave you ever. thank you, for being great and staying by my side throughout my life.

"Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart."

Thanks for the best times and here's to more to come!

How Happiness In A Relationship Is So Important

What is the happiness and love that we as individuals deserve when it comes to our relationship?

It's different for each of us. Some prefer being showered in gifts, being showed off on social media, bragged about to family and friends. But, what is the one thing that all of those have in common?

That would be the unmistakable amount of love your significant other has for you, that they will do anything to show you that they love you unconditionally. We all show our love for one another in various ways. I for one love being shown the love someone else has for me in small things they do.

It could be a simple 'good morning love' text message or even just a hug out of the blue. Knowing that someone cares so deeply about you is one of life's greatest gifts. Knowing that another human being loves you and wants to be with you, it makes us drunk off of love and our heads float up to the stars.

However, when we don't feel that love, that connection, that reassurance from our significant other that they love and care for us back, it can be an extremely overwhelming and a lonely feeling.

We start looking for those feelings and connections elsewhere. In our friends for reassurance if we look good or blowing up their phones for attention.

We start caring about if other people find us attractive or not, we relish in compliments that other people give us. We start looking for that happiness elsewhere. It's not because you stop loving your significant other or stop caring about them, but we as humans need to feel important and like we are needed by another person.

When you stop letting your significant other know how much you care about them or showcasing your love for them, even if it's a simple gesture like holding their hand or holding the door open for them, they will begin to look elsewhere.

Now I am in no way saying that they will cheat on you, but your relationship and their attitude and feelings towards you will never be the same until you start showing them how much they mean to you just as much as they do for you. I don't condone cheaters or staying in a relationship that you are not happy in.

Yes, some relationships go through hard times like distance or a traumatic event. However, the way I see it is if you entered into the relationship, to begin with, you obviously cared about that person a lot and if they show you that they care and love you for the person you are and your past then they deserve the same in return from you.

Relationships are not always easy, they take time, determination, communication, compromise, and love to stay afloat. If one of you isn't willing to give your all and put forth the effort needed then it will never work. A relationship can't be successful if it is only one-sided.

Despite peoples life's being busy on a day to day basis, you need to always find time for your significant other. Because at the end of the day when things hit the fan, your significant other should be the one that will be there no matter what and always be by your side.

All in all, you need to treat each other the way in which you would want to be treated in a relationship and treat them the way they should be treated despite whatever chaos is going on in the world about you. Love is the conquer of all and should never be thrown around or not taken seriously.

Loving someone else is a gift we are given by God and never taken lightly.

Behind The Lyrics: 'Enjoy Your Life' By MARINA

As simple as it may seem to "enjoy your life", many need remindeers every now and then. The song "Enjoy Your Life" by MARINA serves as a reminder to listeners to fully embrace your life and enjoy the ups and downs of life.

In the song "Enjoy Your Life" by MARINA, there are many uplifting themes reflected. For many, the song serves as a reminder to enjoy the simple things in life. Music can be very therapeutic and is something many people use to cope throughout their day-to-day. In the son "Enjoy Your Life", MARINA tackles the issues of pressure and stress we feel every day and encourages the listener to put aside their worries and enjoy their life. The song has become an anthem for happiness and gratefulness. In life, there will always be ups and downs, life will always be a balance between the two. The song promotes to the listener to accept this balance and embrace it. The song encourages a positive outlook on life and can be very beneficial for listeners who are having a hard time feeling positive. In this article, I will break down the lyrics and their meaning.

1. Verse 1

"I, I know
You've been feeling stuck, feeling low
You can't see
How good this life can be"


The opening verse addresses the listener and opens up a conversation about how your mindset can affect you. Many times it's common we get stuck in a bad mindset, whether we are always worrying or complaining about our day to day or things that stress us out.

2. Pre-Chorus

"Looking to the future like it's gonna make you happy
Save you from reality, yeah, yeah
Imagining the worst like it's gonna end so badly, yeah, yeah"

Many times it's common we worry about the future. Whether its upcoming deadlines or events coming up, we always find something to worry about. Sometimes this obsessive behavior can become toxic. Sometimes this worry can become anxiety of the future and can lead one to imagine the worst.

3. Chorus

"Sit back and enjoy your problems (Uh)
You don't always have to solve them (Yeah)
'Cause your worst days, they are over
So enjoy your life
Yeah, you might as well accept it (Uh)
Don't you waste your time regretting (Yeah)
'Cause your worst days, they are over
So enjoy your life"






The chorus begins by encouraging the listener to enjoy your problems, which sounds strange to hear. Usually, when faced with problems we don't ever really enjoy it, instead, we may feel down or complain. This phrase as mentioned in an interview with MARINA serves as a reminder to be happy and enjoy your life and everything that comes with it. The chorus encourages the listener to enjoy life and not stress over your problems because you may end wishing you didn't always spend so much time worrying or trying to fix your problems in life. Simply put, the chorus's message is to enjoy your life.

4. Verse 2

"Sun comes up
Your eyes they see clear
Take one breath
Your worries start to disappear"


In the second verse, MARINA uses the sunrise as a symbol for new hope each day, and how each day is a new start. This symbol is reflective to the lyrics "The sun will rise, and we will try again", from the song "Truce" by Twenty One Pilots; who similarly use the sunrise as a new hope and a new beginning to keep trying.

5. Bridge

"When we're down low
Everybody's moving 'round in slo-mo
Never think we'll get out of this black hole
But you're not living in this world alone, alone"


When you feel sad or depressed, it's not uncommon to feel alone or feel like no one else is going through what you are going through. For those with depression, it can feel like you are stuck feeling depressed and it can feel like no one else around you would ever understand the feeling. In this part of the song, MARINA reaches out to the listener to encourage them that you're not alone in your struggle.

6. Outro

"So enjoy your life (Uh, ooh-ooh)
So enjoy your life (Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
So enjoy your life"

The song wraps up the message and reminds the listener once more to enjoy your life.
