Why You Need A Best Friend Like Mine

(She made me write this.)

Why You Need A Best Friend Like Mine

She is up to hang out for hours and do literally nothing.

There isn’t anything better than a friend who you can just sit with and do nothing. You know the friendship is real when silence is normal and not at all awkward.

She gives good advice.


Whether it’s what I should wear out or what new show is really worth all the hype, she always has the answer.

She’ll watch dumb movies with me.

Friday nights were made for cheesy horror movies and Disney Channel Originals. I cannot tell you the amount of times I have watched High School Musical with this girl.

She’ll FaceTime me for hours to talk

Since our schools are five hours apart, it is necessary to find a way to talk to my best friend. I am the worst at communicating so she knows that the way to contact me is to FaceTime me repeatedly until I answer. When she does get me on the phone, we can talk for hours about everything and nothing.

She’s stuck by my side for 14 years.

Nothing says true friendship than someone who has stuck with you through elementary school, middle school awkward phases, high school drama, all the way through college.

I am always welcome at her house.

If you don’t have a best friend that lives two minutes away from you, you’re seriously missing out. I know I can always stop by her house on short notice or she will just text me to say she’s picking me up on her way to the mall or to grab food (she will always be the DJ to my Kimmy).

Her family is basically my family.

Her brother is just as annoying as my brother, and her parents put up with me just like my parents. With the amount of time I spend at her house, it is nice to know that I am a part of the family.

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.

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.
