To The Friends Who Making Living Possible

To The Friends Who Make Living Possible

And not to mention, worth it.

Marissa Chappell

I know its only been less than two years since we've met, but you have changed me in unimaginable ways. You have made me grow stronger than I ever thought I could be.

You are there through the stresses of school and work and whatever else is thrown into our hectic lives but you are also there to supply the laughs and smiles. Endless movie night and frat parties. Dinner nights to bring everyone together after weeks of being apart.

My friends, you are all the reason that I overcome my "funks" and my bad days.

You are the reasons I push through to get my work done so that we could enjoy the three days every week we get to spend with each other.

I can't even think of a group closer and more supportive than the people I have surrounding me every day. I feel so lucky to not only be apart of an organization of girls who support and love each other more than anything.

But to have a friend group outside of those girls, who give the same amount of love. These are the ladies that will be my bridesmaids and the dudes that will attend my wedding, if not being a groomsman. We are going to watch each other grow successful and continue to make the world a better place way beyond our college years.

I am so incredibly excited to see each and every one of my friends do something, create something and become of something absolutely amazing. Whether that be becoming a teacher and influencing the lives of hundreds of children, managing a hotel in the Carrabian, saving someone's life by replacing a valve in their heart or just by simply having one conversation, getting to the bottom of a huge crime investigation, moving to Africa and curing sick wild animals, working for the government, or just being their to love a support their family.

You are all going to go far and do amazing so let's make the last three years the best three years. Let's push each other to our limits and watch each other be the absolute best we can be.

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part. I wanted to be out on the ground with my community, having our voices heard. However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

A high metabolism isn't a get-out-of-jail-free card!

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
