Thank You to My Best Friends

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. Proverbs 17:17

Thank You to My Best Friends

Whether we have been best friends for one year or eight I thank God he put you guys in my life. I thank him so much because we met in the times I definitely needed someone to be there for me. You guys have pushed me through difficult times. Times where I wanted to give up you guys pushed me to keep going.

I believe that family is not only by blood but by choosing. I have blood family who have completely done me wrong and you guys have not let me down. We have had our ups and downs but we are human. We will make mistakes. We will hurt the people we love unintentionally but the important thing is that we forgive. We forgive and keep going.

You guys made me laugh when I thought it was impossible to. You guys love me when I hate myself. You guys encourage me. You guys make me want to try new things. You guys accept my crazy attitude. You guys make me want to be better. Not only for me but for our future families.

You are there for the breakups, the heartaches, and the tears and have helped me get myself together. You guys helped me love life again. Y’all reminded me about everything I have right in front.

I love the late nights at waffle house. I love our dinners. Our pizza filled nights. Even if we are just sitting around my dinner table. I love going to the movies even if my mother gets mad about how late we picked the movie time. I loved the night in Atlanta where we couldn’t find a club for us. The nights where we roast each other until one of us just can’t take it.. Oh my gosh or the time we had a cookout and it was sooo cold. If I were to write all of our memories we would be here forever.

I don’t think you guys know how important you guys are to me. You guys literally have saved my life. That is why sometimes I am so hard on you guys. Y’all deserve the world. Y’all deserve more. I want you guys to succeed and I get angry because sometimes you guys do not believe in yourselves.

We are a group of different individuals. We have different stories but we find ourselves at home. We have things other people don’t know that we tell each other. We are a group of individuals that wanted a place to feel loved and accepted and we found it with each other.

I have had plenty of people walk out of my life and I am okay with it. But if you guys walked out I don’t think I would be fine.

So please don’t leave and stay for the rest of this book I call life.

Love always,

Your high-maintenance, overly-sensitive best friend.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
