7 Ways Work Friends Are Different From Regular Friends
Maddie Rogers

Work friends are seriously a special type of friend. You hang out with them every shift and you're forced to suffer through the painful parts of your job together. No doubt, that creates a bond.

1. Your work friends know exactly what you go through with customers.

You can attempt to explain why the curly headed blonde girl is the worst to your regular friends, but they will just never understand.

2. Your work friends give you advice on your personal life without even knowing any of the people that you're talking about.

Giphy

Half of the text messages sent from my phone are composed by my coworker and I when it's dead at work.

3. They basically can't cancel plans to hang out with you, because it's their job to come to work.

Giphy

You know you'll get to catch up on everything when you get scheduled together again.

4. They understand your work struggles.

Giphy

They 100% understand why you cried when the cash register paper messed up AGAIN.

5. They understand why you hate some of your coworkers, and more than likely, they hate them too.

Giphy

It's nice to have an ally that agrees that coworker is literally unbearable.

6. You have secrets with them that no one else would understand

Giphy

Work secrets are literally pinky promise worthy.

7. They become your friend in real life on top of being a work friend, so they know literally everything about you.

Giphy

Being able to talk to someone about work and have them understand is such a perk.

Work friends share a bond with you that no one else can. They understand your daily struggles in life, and sometimes find their way into becoming one of your best friends.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Is a month at home too much to handle?

14363

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
