“What are yachts and speed boats, Alex.”
“Judges? Ooooo, so close, but sorry… we were looking friend-ships.”
Yes, yachts and speed boats are pretty badass, but can they get you out of a jam?
That is why I would like to take my hat off to all of you phenomenal friends out there who are always there to help a friend enjoy the journey. Be it jumping on a grenade so they can get laid, duct taping 40’s to their hands until every ounce of malt liquor is consumed, or simply listening to them vent their frustration when it feels as if all hope in their world is lost. The fun and crazy times are usually the most memorable, but it’s the friends that are by your side when times get tough that are the ones worth hanging on to.

Goodbyes are never easy. With job opportunities all over the country, and even abroad, I find myself saying goodbye to more friends than I would like.

I received an email from my super awesome friend Alysen a few months ago in which she typed out the entire Golden Girls theme song, “Thank you for being a friend, travel down the road and back again, your heart is true, you’re a pal and a confident…” It brought a huge smile to my face. With that said, I wanted to share with you that beloved 80’s theme song in hope that it will do the same for you. Don’t be ashamed to share this with a friend… stay golden Blanche.
