Everything I Want To Say To The Boy Who Broke My Best Friend

I wish you saw my best friend the way that I saw her. I wish you had gratitude for her fierce loyalty, admiration for her grace and I wish that your heart hurt when hers did.

In the beginning we were all rooting for you. You pursued her relentlessly with kindness and respect; we were so glad to see her radiate with a different kind of joy than before. Unfortunately, that light didn't shine for long.

As soon as you had her committed, you took a wicked turn. I can't count how many days of hers were so gray with confusion and hurt because she hadn't heard from you in a while. How many girls nights she spent crying in our arms because of something you said or did. The amount of girls that would constantly try to contact her to let her know that you had been unfaithful.

What you should know about her by now is that when she loves, she loves big, and when she loves you, you never have to wonder if she loves you. I think because of that she really wanted to believe the best in you.

She gave you chance after chance to be honest, loyal and respectful. You hurt her, we comforted her, you called her, she ran back to you.

We nearly hated you only because we loved her so much. We watched her disappear into the midst of heartbreak. She wasn't herself anymore. She based all of her decisions and plans around you and what would make you happy. She lived in fear of upsetting you or not being enough for you.

You broke her into someone none of us recognized, including herself.

Even after you all finally ended things, I think she always held out hope that you would come back to her in a better, kinder, more careful version of who you were before. We begged and pleaded with her to help us, help her. What can we do? We would ask. What will help you move on?

The honest truth was that she just wanted to be appreciated by you. She wanted you to see how loyal she was to you, how much she did and cared for you. She just wanted to be enough for you.

For months we answered 3 am FaceTime calls, we took her on long drives to "cry it out" and we prayed every hour of the day for her beautiful heart to heal.

I don't think you are a wicked person, but your actions have been so ugly.

My only hope and prayer is that you grow up. We all know you are capable of bigger and better things than your reputation represents.

Today my best friend is stronger because of you, more independent because of you & has empathy and compassion like no other. For that, I thank you. Despite that it was once broken, she has never been so full of heart.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
