"Making a million friends is not a miracle, the miracle is to make a friend who will stand by you when millions are against you." - Unknown

This one is for you, Ang.

Growing up, we have that one friend who has always been there since the beginning. Someone who has slept over your house every weekend. A person who went to the movies with you, someone who you spend your time with. For me, this person is my best friend, Angela. From the fourth grade to now, I can honestly call you my best friend. Since then, our friendship has blossomed into one of the best ones I ever had.

If you were to know Angela or myself, you would know that we're practically polar opposites. I could sit there all day and do my makeup, while she would go shopping at Hot Topic. It's amazing that two very different people can come together and form a friendship. Our different views have never really been to be an issue. Personally, I think it defines our relationship, which is why it's so special to me.

Growing up, we were always there for one another. No matter what we were going through, we were right next to one another. She even calls my parents "mom and dad" and i do the same to hers. It's almost as if we have our own separate lives that intertwined into a blended family. In all honesty, the both of us would equally be offended if we didn't feel apart of one another's family.

One thing that I love about my friendship with Angela is that no matter how far away we are, we pick up right where we left off. Being that I attend school three and a half hours away, it is almost impossible to see her more than once a month. We can go weeks without seeing or speaking to one another, yet it feels like I never left her sight. We still crack the same jokes, go to the same restaurants and even re-watch Catfish just because we both love it so much.

I believe that all these things I've mentioned are what makes our friendship so special. Since we've known one another from the age of nine, we've witnessed each other grow into the people we are today. We have both experienced several relationships with people, and we even have different friend groups. Yet no matter what, we've still managed to stay connected to one another.

Although we don't always see eye to eye, we manage to always fall on the same page. No matter what I'm doing, she's one of the first people I contact to hang out with. Yes, maybe we don't always agree on the same T.V. show or what restaurant we want to go to, but what matters is we are always trying to be in each others lives. For as long as I can remember, Angela and I have been by each other's side since the day we met.

Not many people can say they have a friendship like this. In fact, I am very particular about who I let into my life. Many people have came and gone, yet Angela has always stayed. Ang, I don't say this too often, but know that I value and appreciate our friendship. Many people have hurt me and lost my trust, but you're someone I'm lucky enough to call my best friend.

Cheers to the many years ahead of us. May they be 10,000x better than the past 13 years.

P.S. My children and our dogs can have many play dates with one another.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
