To My Girl Gang

To My Girl Gang

Thank you is such an understatement.


Behind every girl is a strong and supportive girl gang. They're there for you unconditionally. Offering you endless love and encouragement as you go through this crazy thing called life. They definitely deserve some recognition for being a constant blessing in your life. Here's to my girl gang, thank you is such an understatement:

1. Thank you for listening to me.

Your girl gang is always one text, call, or FaceTime chat away. Let's face it, we can all be dramatic sometimes, well I know I can be at least, and I'm forever grateful for my friends putting up with me and listening to any problem I have. No problem is too big or too small for them. I could be suffering from an indecisive decision of what to eat or my next career advancement move.

2. Thank you for always being down for a girls night!

We all need our girls night out where the night is filled with shenanigans, tons of wine, and lots of laughs. I am so thankful that even with the distance, I can still get together with my gal pals for a night and catch up over some great drinks and food. A girls night out is good for the heart and the soul.

3. Thank you for pushing me to be a better version of myself.

Sometimes, you'll encounter people who will challenge you. Embrace the fact that a positive attitude gives you power over your circumstances instead of your circumstances having power over you. Your girl gang will push you to be a better you by reminding you that you're a great person and you don't need to succumb to people's negative and immature actions. You're better than that. I am grateful for my girl gang reminding me that I am better than responding to negativity.

4. Thank you for being as silly as I am.

With your girl gang, you can never take life so seriously. They are there ready to crack a joke, bust a move, do it all. I know that I can be my complete self with my gal pals, I may be given a look of judgment for my silliness, but it will be quickly followed up with an even sillier face or expression.

5. Thank you for always being there.

I don't know if it's telepathy or what, but the bond you have with your girl gang is unparallel. They always seem to know when something is wrong with me, even if I don't say anything. They call or text with perfect timing, offering me a shoulder to cry on when life sometimes becomes too overwhelming. They comfort me with words of ease and reassure me that everything will be okay. I cannot express how much it means to me to have your endless support, thank you.

Thank you

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

A Letter to my Best Friends that go to the Rival School

It's a love hate relationship..


To my Indiana University Hoosiers,

The concept of rivalry is something that we are taught from a very young age. You're not supposed to like your opponent. You're supposed to despise them with every ounce of your being. When it comes to competition, we're taught that our ultimate goal is to come out on top and in order to reach the goal of winning. We can't subject ourselves to the weakness of friendships with the enemies. In my own life, I've been taught that the IU vs. Purdue rivalry has a certain level of importance. I was born a boilermaker and I followed in the footsteps of my great-grandparents, grandparents, uncles, and parents by deciding to become an official boilermaker last fall. I've had the hatred for IU implanted into my brain and ever since I was young I knew that IU was the enemy.

So how do I have such good friends who go to the rivalry school? Do I have a secret level of hate for the ones who are closest to me?

The truth is, I don't. Do I hate your stupid "cream and crimson" candy-striped pants? Of course. Do I hate the fact that people are always claiming that your school is the Indiana school for basketball even though Purdue has consistently beat IU since Cody Zeller left? You bet I do. Do I hate the fact that you're always bragging about your banners? No doubt. I hate everything about your school.

But do I don't even hate you to the slightest bit.

The truth is, you guys are the best friends I have ever had. You look out for me. You care about me and always make sure I'm okay. You tease me like siblings. You allow me to be my very best self. I love the times we spend together because I'm always on the flooring dying from laughter. There's no rivalry on earth that could make me not want to spend the weekends with you guys, staying up until 1 am and going to Mcdonald's or laughing about stupid inside jokes. You have shaped into being a better person and you have allowed me to enjoy every single moment of life. I don't know where I would be without you guys and our friendship. Without you guys, I would be incomplete.

All the time I think about the things I am going to tell my kids about when they ask me to tell them stories about when I was younger and when I am living out moments with you guys, I know that these are the stories that I'm going to tell them about. I'm going to tell them about all the fun times we've spent at both of our schools. I'm going to tell them about the amazing friendship that we all shared and the amazing friendship I hope they find someday in their own lives.

One day, I'll teach my kids all about the pride of being a boilermaker. I'll tell them about the amazing energy you feel as you walk into Mackey Arena. I'll teach them to sing "Hail Purdue" as soon as they can even speak. I'll tell them about the amazing fountain runs that they can do on campus. I'll tell them everything they need to love about Purdue. I'll even tell them to hate IU.

But you know what else I'll tell them?

Some people are worth crossing enemy lines for.
