What I Mean When I Say BFF

I still love you, I still pray for you, and I still want you to succeed.

What I Mean When I Say BFF
E! Online

Best Friends Forever, I hear people say it all of the time, the phrase "I love you" is probably one of the most overused phrases in the English language, but I think "BFFs" is the second most overused. Of course, by overused, I don't just mean it is said a lot, I'm talking about the number of times it is said, but not really meant.

Much like any female, growing up, I had many different friends. Most of my friendships ended in heart ache, I remember being heart broken time and time again because I had been betrayed by someone I had called my best friend. Although I am sure I have hurt peoples' feelings plenty of times throughout the course of my life, I have done my best to ALWAYS be considerate of how other people feel. Almost, to a fault, I have always tried to be the person who puts how everyone else feels in front of how I feel. That is why it has always been so hard for me to accept that someone I was so good to, would not even return the favor.

However, no matter how my old best friends have treated me in the past, I have never stopped loving them. I still pray for them, when I find out they're going through a hard time, my heart aches for them, and whenever they succeed in something, I am proud for them. Every friendship I have had throughout the course of my life, holds a special place in my heart. If it hadn't been for them, I would not be who I am today. That sounds cheesy, I know, but it is true. God places these people in your life for a reason, and when he sees them becoming toxic to the plans he has for you, he removes them from your life.

So, bottom line, I want all of my 'ex-besties' to know that I still love them, and I pray for them always. Just because friendships fail, does not mean you need to compromise your heart and fill it with hate rather than love. Be thankful for your forever friends, but also for your temporary friends. They were there for you for a little while, friendship is something that is worth it's weight in gold.

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
