Why Having A Long Distance Best Friend Rocks

“After all, seasons change, so do cities; people come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away.” -Sex in the City

Lets be honest, it actually sucks having my best friend being about 975 miles away from me. But I wouldn’t give up my friendship with her for anything and this is why..

1. She can be more objective when it comes to issues in your life.

Of course I want my best friend to meet the new guy i'm dating but it's also nice having her so far away and not having met him yet so she can give me her non-biased opinion.

2. Seeing her is a treat, not just an everyday occurrence.

When your best friend lives close to 1000 miles away, it's harder to take her for granted. It was hard going from living in the same little dorm room and being with each other everyday to now only being able to see each other once every few months. But we make it work amazingly somehow. And with that…

3. When you see each other, it's like no time has passed at all.

Maybe it's from the daily face-times and phone calls or the constant tagging in pictures on Facebook and Instagram. Whatever it is, no matter how long of time passes with us going without seeing each other, it feels like we just saw each other yesterday.

4. You know how much your friendship is truly valued.

Living so far away and living two completely different lives now, it is easy to get caught up and lose touch. But somehow we haven’t managed to do that which shows how important our friendship means to us.

5. But no matter how far she may be, she's still my forever best friend.

Does the distance suck sometimes? Of course. I wish I could be with my best friend 24/7, exploring the world and making dumb decisions. But no matter what she’ll always be the Serena to my Blair.

I wouldn’t trade my long distance best friend for anyone closer, and I'm lucky enough that they really are just a plane ride away. (even though I wish it wasn’t).

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.

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.
