To The Friends I Used To Know

I will forever be missing you and the times we shared together.

To The Friends I Used To Know

My Dearest Best Friends,

I will forever be missing you and the times we shared together.

I feel my heart break every time I think of you and I can barely utter your names without losing it just a little.

It used to be easy when we first started to grow apart.

I thought it’d only been temporary, as often was the case.

But here I am, with years of lost time between us,

And I feel the permanence start to sink in.

Its over, its really over.

I can’t go back, only forward but believe me when I say I wish I could.

One more night is all I’d need, just one more night to say goodbye.

The hardest goodbyes are the ones left unsaid,

And as this screen goes blurry in front of me I can finally understand that.

They say that some people are only meant to be in your life for a short amount of time;

And once they fulfill their purpose, they leave, but I can’t help but try to fight that theory.

I’ve tried to fight it as hard as I possibly could.

Not you.

No, it could never happen with you.

It could never happen with us.

Please God, anyone else but them;

Not after everything we’ve been through.

You filled my life with laughter, dried the tears and held me when I couldn’t even speak.

You knew how I was without even asking and did whatever it took to make me feel okay again.

When my life fell apart for the umpteenth time, you made sure to make me forget about it —even if it was just for a little while.

You filled my birthdays with nothing but happiness and threw me more parties than I could handle.

You danced with me in the rain,

Sang with me with the windows rolled down

And dared anyone to tell us to lower the music.

It was the heart-to-hearts in double-parked cars

And questionable train rides at 4 AM.

That first birthday shot.

That last hug before my plane took off.

Midnight basketball and fast food runs.

Stolen hoodies, never to be returned.

But accepting that,

Accepting me.

For all that I was, for all that I am.

But who knows if you’ll ever see who I will be.

We’ll watch each other’s lives in pictures now;

I’ll accomplish milestones absent of such familiar faces,

And make wishes on candles that you’d be there when I open my eyes.

You showed me that friends really can turn into family,

And for the rest of my life I will always be grateful.

My Dearest Best Friends,

I will love you always.

And if you forget all else

Please, don’t ever forget that.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

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.
