10 Types Of Friends Every Girl Needs
Kelli Nguyen

We have our high school friends, our college friends, our friends in a relationship, our single friends, our friends at work, our going-out friends, and even our friends that we talk to every couple months.

As we grow older and our lives change, so do our friendships. These friendships, in turn, prove their bonds with time.

All of our friends are different. They fulfill different needs, express different opinions and posses different personalities. However, I appreciate every one of my friends for everything they give me, and embrace the unique relationships we all share.

I can’t imagine where I’d be without my friends. Well, I’d be pretty sad and lonely that’s for sure. While family will always be there, friends are the ones that make life fun, interesting and spontaneous.

Some friends will walk out of your life, but there are these certain friendships every girl should have and experience.

1. The Honorary Sister Best Friend

The friend that knows you so well that you’re basically the same person. She’s like a sister/fake boyfriend. She never judges you and is there for you whenever and forever. She always brings you back to who you truly are.

2. The Actual Sister Best Friend

The person that has been through it all--fights, break ups, stolen clothes, etc. Most of the time you hate each other, but it's hard not to love each other. Basically, your Maid of Honor.

3. The Guy Best Friend

The best person to chill and vent to. Their male perspective helps us make decisions and opinions. They add the perfect amount of testosterone in life.

4. The Eccentric Best Friend

This friend is always up for having a good time. Want to chill in-room for the night? Yeah right, she’ll convince you to have a great time one way or another. She's always up for anything and she's crucial to your social life and to experiencing new things.

5. The Hometown Bestie

The high school BFF. The one you love to catch up with and hang out with when you’re back home for breaks. Talks about old high school classmates are the best.

6. The Emotional One

The one that can feel all types of things depending on the vibe of the night. She cries about anything and everything like a broken hair-tie to a broken heart. Whatever it is, it is almost guaranteed she’ll cry about it.

7. The Mom

The mature one of the group. She makes it her priority to see that everyone is safe and considerate. She holds the group together.

8. The “Sort of Friends” Acquaintance

Are we really friends or just when we run into each other? You see her casually hanging out at the same places or walking to class and you have a lot of mutual friends. When it comes to hanging out, it’s a complete blast, but there is no effort to make plans to hang out otherwise.

9. The Friend With No Filter

She’ll tell it like it is. She is not afraid to voice her opinion on everything and anything. As annoying as it can be, she’ll always tell you the truth about how that outfit really looks on you. She emphasizes tough love and will save you from anything.

10. The SQUAD

The original group. Each of these girls have a unique personality that compliments one another. You refer to your squad in the third person and people get annoyed by it (#whatever). They are the ones there for you at the end of the day, and you would do anything for them.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
