To My Oldest And Dearest Friend

Thanks for always having my back.

To My Oldest And Dearest Friend

To my oldest and dearest friend,

I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for being the sister I never had, but sort of always wanted. We've grown up side by side and you have quite literally seen the best of me and the worst of me, but through it all, we've stayed together. Starting Pre-K together and becoming friends meant you became an important part of a crucial developmental period in my life, and whenever I look back at my time in elementary school, I see you braving it out with me. A lot has changed in my life, but through all the changes you have been one of my much appreciated constants, and I cannot thank you enough for that. Thanks for putting up with years of code names and nick names and the OG tester of my corniest jokes. We've spent birthdays, Christmases, Thanksgivings and all the best times together. Whenever I look back on my childhood and some of its best moments, I see us.

I see us making bucket lists that almost always include doing something with the other person.

I see late night jam sessions and phone calls that last for hours.

I see us at Applebee's after Christmas and Spring Concerts.

I see us at my house doing endless group projects, like that science project that erupted once.

I see us going to our favorite places and doing our favorite things.

I see us fight but more importantly I see us come together stronger than before.

I see us taking 5 minute car rides to each other's house, because we've always lived so close.

I see a wonderful person that I'm thankful I got to grow up with.

As our friendship reaches its very sweet sixteen (corny I know), I wanted to tell you thanks for being the best friend anyone could ever ask for, I am so appreciative that you are in my life and if you ask me where we'll go from here, I'll say, "another sixteen years down the road... I see us."

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
