To The Friends I Have Already Made In College

It's only been a month, but you guys mean the world to me.

4 weeks. A month. Approximately 31 days. That’s how long we’ve been in college. A lot can change in that short amount of time. I came into college scared and excited. I was determined to find “my people” that I want to experience college with. I wanted a few close friends and not a ginormous group of people, and I’m happy to say that I’ve found those few people. This article is specifically for you guys and I hope you like it. I’m going to try and keep this short, so bear with me.

Alex- Thank you for being such a wonderful friend, from being half asleep during a fire drill and struggling to do basic math, to talking in psychology about a little boy’s dream of being an MMA fighter we’ve already made a lot of memories. Here’s to many more Starbucks runs and borrowing scantrons for a psychology test. Stay beautiful and remember to always keep your head up. Love you so much!

Keke- We’ve known each other since 8th grade and I’m so happy we’ve been friends ever since. Having you at Lander puts a big smile on my face. Thank you for being a bestfrined. I can’t wait for many more drives from Lander back to Sumter. It’s such a great feeling to have you here at my home away from home and I hope you come to love it just as much as I do! Here’s to many more Disney movies to be watched on campus, and many more conversations about all the struggles of college. Much love to you, and remember I’m always here for you. Love you so much!

Dawson- To be honest, I almost put “dingus” or “my dude” because you would have known it was yours. Back home I had a couple of close guy friends, and I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find any when I went off to college, but you proved me wrong. You’ve literally become my best friend in this short amount of time and it’s been awesome! We’ve had so many adventures already. From the disaster of pink hair dye, to you riding with me to Anderson just to buy Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I’m glad we share the same love for Melanie Martinez and other performers. Thanks for always sending me pictures of cute puppies just to make me even happier than I am at that current moment. And just remember you’re an amazing friend even though you hate my driving and pick on me about how I say “no”. Much love my dude!

Sarah, Helena, and Cynthia- MY OH MY, where do I begin my lovelies? You all are such beautiful souls. I’m going to keep this short because I could go on and on. My beloved froomies that finally became my roomies! We may get slightly annoyed with each other at times, but we are living together 24/7. From the adventures of making waffles, to braving a hurricane just to buy food to avoid the cafeteria, a lot of things have already occurred this semester. I can’t wait to make so many more memories with you guys. I love the movie nights that we’ve been having and the fact that I can count on you guys for anything. I love each of you all so much!

To wrap it all up, all of you guys have made Lander feel like home. You guys constantly put a smile on my face and make me happy. Thank you for being such wonderful friends in this adventure of college.

When You Make A Girl An Aunt, You Change Her World In All The Best Ways

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a number-one fan

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

Sandra Bullock Is More Than Just The Lady From Bird Box

How dare you call her just the lady...?


Sandra Bullock is the lead actress of the new Netflix movie Bird Box. This movie has received so many good reviews. Also, there has been memes on social media about the movie. It's become very popular, so even people who haven't seen the movie know about the movie. For example, a meme would say:


However, there was this one disrespectful tweet.

This generation does not know who Sandra Bullock is. This is wrong because Sandra Bullock amazing. People watched Bird Box and discovered who Sandra Bullock was. I watched Bird Box because of Sandra Bullock. She is the reason why I had a great childhood. Let's not forget about all the movies that made her famous. There's many: A Time to Kill, Hope Floats, Practical Magic, Miss Congeniality, Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, The Proposal (one of my favorite movies), The Blind Side, The Heat, Gravity, and Ocean's 8.

All these movies are the best of the best and this generation needs to watch these movies to realize that Sandra Bullock isn't just the lady from Bird Box. She is an extraordinary actress and human being, and her greatness should be recognized. Period.
