An Open Letter to the Best Friend I'm Losing

An Open Letter to the Best Friend I'm Losing

A Best Friend Can Slip Away With No Reason.

I didn't know the person who brought the most smiles and laughs to my face would be the person who made me cry the most. 

Dear Best Friend, 

    You were the best thing that ever happened to me. For the past five and a half years, you have been there through the worst times and some of the best, and I didn't think that anyone would be as important to me as you are. It never crossed my mind that there would be a time where we don't talk. I thought we would always be friends, but here we are not talking or associating with each other. 

    Honestly, I feel as though you are slipping through my fingers and I don't know why. I'm trying to grasp and hold on, but there is nothing I can do to stop you. I feel lost without you because you were always there to guide me. I am unsure if you realize the impact you have made on my life. You helped me process through my feelings, and now, I feel like I am stuck underwater, watching everyone else breathe. I lay in bed at night remembering all the times that we have been together. I reread all of our text conversations, hoping and praying that you would message me again. 

    I remember our first conversation on the football field. I remember the theatre productions. I remember all those early morning McDonald's breakfast runs before you left town. I remember all of our ice cream hang outs. I remember going to the drive in. I remember our first kiss, our long tight hugs, our late night conversations.I remember them all. I don't know if you realize the impact you have made on me and how much it kills me not hanging out and talking. You were always so happy and always made me laugh. I would be in the midst of tears and you would text or snap-chat me and  I would instantly feel better. Not only did I fall for you, but I fell in love with our friendship. 

   Not a day goes by that I don't think about you or pray for you. Sometimes I catch myself debating if I want to message you or not. I get stuck in my thoughts of not wanting to bother you, but yearning to talk to you. Sometimes I wish I would get a direct answer on our friendship because I die a little bit everyday not talking to you. I don't know if I would try so hard keeping any other one of my friends, but five and a half years is a long time to just loose it suddenly. So many feelings invested into it, I don't think I can quit. Please don't keep slipping through my fingers.

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
