A Letter To My Future Friends

From an anxious almost-first year.

A Letter To My Future Friends

I am at a great time in my life. The future is bright with so many wonderful things to come. There is change, new friends, new places, and a whole new chapter.

At college this fall, I hope to meet wonderful best friends who are with me for both parties and chill nights in. As being with someone who has anxiety, I have my own set of little jitters and habits. So, to my future friends, this is for you.

Dear Future Friends.

I can't wait for our future days and nights together. I can't wait to laugh and joke and scream with you. I will be there to cry with you or be mad with you, to plot silly revenge with you.

I hope we make memories together, sing loud and often, dance crazily, and make the best days of our lives the best they can be.

This goes out to the nights that will turn into mornings, and you all - the friends that will turn into family.

This goes out to the future amounts of pizza, coffee, chips, Red Bull, and candy we will consume.

You will see however I worry often. I overthink. I doubt myself. So thank you for every time you will tell me it's okay, reassure me, and tell me I can.

Sometimes I won't go out with you, and I am sorry that some days I am that party pooper, but I hope you still go out without me. And, I will be forever grateful for our nights in with a lot of food and talk.

I will apologize for everything. I will say sorry if you tell me to stop saying sorry. I feel bad for the silliest things, like eating the last piece of pizza even if I have your permission.

But despite my flaws and quirks, I will always try to be the best friend I can. I will be there to listen and to be a shoulder to cry on. I will be there when you need it and if you knock on my door late at night or call my phone I will answer and be there. I will be loyal to you and always try to cheer you up when you are down.

To four years together, and beyond, I promise you I will share clothes and makeup tips and memories and love.

We will be friends for all of college I hope, and friends beyond it even.

Lots of love,

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
