To My Best Guy Friend, I Am So Thankful For Our Friendship

I really don't know if I would have made it through the hardest moments in this life without you.

To My Best Guy Friend, I Am So Thankful For Our Friendship

To my guy best friend,

You inspire me in more ways than one, and I am so thankful God put you in my life when he did.

I still remember that night when you sent me a DM about an Odyssey article I wrote about my previous struggles with anorexia. I was super freaked out at first (as you know) because I didn't realize how vulnerable writing Odyssey articles can make you. You so boldly shared your story with me, and we laughed, cried, and shared our struggles within those few hours of meeting. I think that's when I knew we'd be best friends.

We are similar in more ways than just one. You are the person I go to when I'm struggling with school/life/stress because I know you won't judge me for any of it. You are simply a listening ear who will also call me out on my bullshit when need be.

I still remember those few weeks where I was really at risk for relapsing about this time last year. I wouldn't talk about it with anyone but you because I knew you understood everything. You helped me get through it by making me realize that I was stronger than the ED voices inside my head.

You have been there for me to bitch about the boys I've dated, and I've been there to listen to you talk about the girls you have dated. Your advice is usually pretty solid in that you always tell me to just become a cat lady, and I'm pretty sure I would have already taken you up on it if Longwood allowed pets in residential housing. I also love our pact (that I pretty much forced upon you) to get married if both of us are still single by the time we're 50.

Thank you for being just as obsessed with The Office, babies, running, and stupid people as I am.

And lastly, thank you for all that you are. In changing colleges, majors, and dealing with sports injuries (all at once), you have shown true resilience. Through our late-night phone calls, country song lyrics you send me at 2 am, and the too many times you have made me roll my eyes at the things you say (because I'm clearly not hip), I know you will thrive in this life and help so many people. I am so proud of everything you are and everything you are going to be.

Don't give up, because I don't know what I'd do without you!

Love, your girl best friend

P.S. Don't you dare get a mullet like you've always talked about. You'll look like Billy Ray Cyrus from the 90s... just no.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
