a letter to my best friend

Dear my best friend,

First of all, I hope you’re having a wonderful day. You deserve it. 

Actually, you deserve everything your sweet little heart desires. Sometimes I wish I could just shake you by the shoulders until you realized how darn perfect you are. Seriously. I know you don’t see what I see: your smile that warms every room you walk into, your cute giggle that I adore, and your jokes that no one else really gets.

I’m so lucky to call you my best friend, and I honestly don’t know what I’d do without you. You are seriously the most genuine person I’ve met, and here is no one else I’d rather share my deepest darkest secrets with. I know you always listen attentively and your advice is unrivaled. 

We’ve shared some amazing moments so far (filled with both laughter and tears), but I know that the future holds many more of these special moments and adventures.

Love you to pieces. 


true love

I feel like all I ever blog about anymore is about my classes, but this semester my classes are above and beyond anything I ever could have imagined. I’m learning about concepts that consistently blow my mind, make me think, and make me wonder. 

One of my classes in particular has me leaving every class in this bubble of amazement at the world and everything it entails. The other day, our homework assignment was to watch the movie Her by Spike Jonze. At first I was like, “oh yes, an easy homework assignment and an excuse to escape to my room to watch a movie.” But after our class discussion regarding the film, I understood the importance of watching this movie. 

In class, we zero-ed in on the idea of true love. The idea of falling in love with your operating system seems out of reach and like an extreme idea. However, when we started talking more about it, I realized how close we are to this idea. Think about Siri for example. Do you say “please” to her subconsciously? Do you love the idea that she can give your directions without rolling her eyes? Weird, right? 

My TA commented on my assignment with this statement regarding true love and it gave me “all the feels” as the kids are saying these days. 

“Love is such an intense and individual emotion and I don't know how we can rightly say that what someone else is experiencing is not "real". That said, I believe for love to be fully actualized, to reach its highest aspirations, if you will, then it must be a shared experience.
We can't burn our fires long for no warmth, for no light. At least we shouldn’t.” 

Poetic, right? 

Thanks for reading!

When thinking about accessorizing, the first thing that comes to mind are necklaces, earrings, rings. You know, the typical jewelry kinda thing. But, there’s more to accessorizing than with jewelry alone. 

Think about it. Everything you have around you is an accessory. Your phone case, your glasses, and even your water bottle. When Bobble reached out to me to tell me about their company I was so excited to share their awesome water bottles with you guys! 

Not only are Bobble bottles super fun and unique, but on their website you can create your own custom bottle. Talk about perfect. Be sure to check out their End The Trend Campaign .
