Home Friends v. College Friends, Or How To Keep Both

Friends are pretty much how we survive in this world. Yes we have our family and cheese but it really is thanks to the people who can make us laugh until we pee or cry until we feel better that keep us sane. And really, without group chats, constant drunk nights and all the left over fries on your friends plate while their in the bathroom, are you really enjoying life?
I'll answer that for you, NOPE!
As we get older friendships become more complex and adding college to the mix can throw everything for a loop. Because there are very big differences between Home friends and College friends, and knowing the difference will help you keep both in your life.

Home Friends

They are the people that have known you forever. They loved you through your awkward angst, your "ugly stage", your first crushes, your first beer (and blackout), your first kiss.
They know everything about you and your family. Walking into their house, kicking off your shoes and raiding the fridge is acceptable and normal behavior. Your family has seen them drunk and your mom will think its ok to discipline them.
They are the siblings you get to choose.
But that also means fights are worse. Your parents ask how they are, you usually go to the same places, and have all the same friends. When you aren't talking everything reminds you of them. Making up takes longer because feelings are hurt deeper and avoiding each other at home is a lot easier.

College Friends

College friends are the best because when you guys meet, there are no rules or adults stopping you from being you. You spend your first few days getting to know each other in between shots and pregame songs blaring in some random kids dorm room. It takes only a week to know who your best friend is going to be. Living with someone forces you to develop relationships faster.
But because you are living together you become incredibly close. They know each detail about your morning routine, what foods you like, what types of drinks get you what time of drunk, and your sex life is their weekly newsletter. College is a place of non-judgement and fun.
But that also means some friendships will not stand the distance of being apart once you graduate.
Home friends will aways be there. They require little effort but deserve much appreciation. When you go away to college, texting them every second is not necessary but letting them in on huge details and making them feel loved is all Home Friends need.
College friends require a lot more effort. There isn't a lot of past history, but the memories made will surmount to an experience you will never want to lose, let alone forget. College friends need more communication and effort to hang out, but trust me, you won't mind putting in a little effort for the craziest friendships of a lifetime.
Friendships are crazy and fun and completely different at different periods of your life enjoy them as the come and hopefully they never go!

this was perfect! and the entire time I was reading it I had both my home friends and college friends right in the back of my head. I love that you added in "cheese" to the mix of things haha and that step brothers gif is classic.
cheese is always a good idea! and yes, same here. we all need at least one or two "super friends" def a friend that will be there for the long haul :)
@jordanhamilton hhaha glad you could relate to it all!! especially the cheese yummmmm. college and home friends are the best and i have a few that ended up being both which is like a super friend!

11 Struggles Of Ridiculously Creative People
Honestly, I'm not disorganized...I just have a lot of ideas. 1. People are always asking you "what do you do?" Creative people do a lot of things. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what you do, but you're good at whatever that is right? 2. You've got a lot of different interests. You like music and art, fashion, writing and movies. You play guitar and you draw. You like a lot of different kinds of websites and you work on a lot of different things. There's nothing wrong with that. People may criticize you for your divided focus, but you view it as a gift. 3. People are always concerned about your wellbeing. You tend to get stressed pretty easily, probably because you're doing a lot of things at once. You can't help it, you love to work and you love to let your creativity flow. Probably because you're being rewarded for just being yourself. 4. You are really eccentric, because most creatives are. It's lame to be weird as a kid, but totally cool to be weird as an adult. If you're going to be crazy, you better get paid for it. Being creative means that you're automatically a secret weapon. You come in when there's no other recourse. 5. You have an insatiable need to create, and sometimes it makes you crazy. You wake up in the middle of the night sometimes and you end up writing something profound in your notebook, or drawing a beautiful masterpiece. There is something inside of you that makes it hard to sleep or take off from work. You have to be doing something all the time, and alhough that leads to stress and anxiety...you will ultimately be rewarded. Because everyone loves a good worker, and people like it even more if that work is innovative. 6. When you get blocked up, it can totally cripple you. Your creativity is the thing that keeps you going. When you hit a road block, and the ideas stop flowing it can seem like you have nothing. But sure enough, when you put pen to paper to draw, write, paint or create, you know that something will come out. Because it has to. 7. Your creativity isn't a hobby...it's your life. It offends you when people don't value it as an asset. Sure, your'e not like everybody else, but that's a really good thing. Creativity is something that not everyone can possess. It's a natural ability and when people tell you that you can't use it, or that it's not valuable, they're wrong. 8. You constantly worry about missing opportunities, and not moving quickly enough. Because your brain is always firing on all cylinders it's easy to become anxious. When those blocks happen, things can get trapped and ideas start to falter. It seems like you're always creating something new, and when that doesn't happen...well, it might seem like the end of your world. 9. You're always fighting with yourself about art and commerce. What can make you the most money doesn't necessarily yield the most artistic results. There's a constant struggle in your head based on a key struggle that has been happening for centuries. It's a fundamental thing. You want to be creative, and make art. And people want to sell your creativity for profit. You have to find the good in what you're doing. 10. You have a serious fear of becoming a "starving artist". You don't want to prove all of your haters right. People in creative fields, or creatives in non-creative fields are always pitted against those who go the more "traditional" route. It's something you'll have to deal with. Creatives are automatically viewed as the underdog, simply because people tend to misunderstand what you're doing. 11. No matter what holds you back, you find a way to get past it. Because you're creative, and nothing can stop you. You're constantly inventing new ways of doing things, and you won't stop until you change the world.

Buy F 100 Classic Ford Truck Parts Online - Carolina-Classics
Buy Ford Truck Style Front Bed Panels by Carolina Classics We have a lot of customers who call wanting to know if they can get a N.O.S. ford f-100 front bed panel for a 1964-66 Ford F-100 pickup. As usual, to make sure you get the right part that you need and that we know what to send you, we have to ask a few questions. You'd be amazed at the amount of people who aren't sure what the have. For the 1964,1965,and 1966 Ford F-100 and F-250 the bed options were either a LONG or SHORT bed obviously, but also you'd either have a STEP SIDE ( known as a Flare Side), or a STYLE SIDE (sometimes referred to as a WIDE bed, or a FLEET SIDE). Just to clear things up, A STEP SIDE has smooth inner side panel, and big bulky fenders on the outside that cover the tires. The STYLE SIDE has smooth outer bed sides with body lines, but has INNER side panels that have what is called a WHEEL TUB spot welded to them that covers the tires. With that information out of the way, the answer to the ORIGINAL question asked is....NO! There may be a few New Old Stock front panels somewhere in the U. S.,but I for one donlt know where they would be. But... YES, we do sell an American made Reproduction that is made out of the original gauge steel, and has all the original features. You can purchase a FRONT PANEL by itself, or with a FRONT BED SILL, with a $40.00 saving when purchased together. Explore more about ford f-100 front bed panel: HONEST TRUTH, I just took an order for one no more than 25 minutes ago from a customer in Texas, and when I mentioned the FRONT SILL, he asked, what's a front sill, and do I really need one? Some people do, and some don't. If you think you don't and find out later you do, then you have to pay that additional $40.00 plus $42-$57 dollars for shipping depending on where you are ordering from. I'll fill you in on this much, if the front of your corrugated floor is rotted out, you probably do need one, because that's exactly where it's at. Right under that part of the floor. You need to check that part really well. It's kinda hard to check, because it has about 28-35 spot welds where the floor welds to it, and it has more than thatย  where the bottom lip of the Carolina Classics Ford F-100 Truck Style Side Front Bed header Panelย  is spot welded to it. That's one of those spots on FORD F-100's that collects dirt and mudย  and once it's in there it has no way to get out and lays there for years eating up the floor, the front bed sill, and the front bed panel. It's fair to say that MOST people do need it, but don'tย  take my word for it, check it. We even get asked what's the benefit of buying a NEW one, to repairing my old one. I'm sure you have ALL heard that (Time is money). And I understand that everyone doesn't have the money to buy a NEW one, but calculate how much time you'll have in your old one, that is IF you have the know how, and tools of the trade to be able to do it yourself. If NOT, and you are going to have the guy who's painting you truck to do it, just remember, even though he may be able to do it a little quicker and better than you could, but HIS time is money too.I have a lot of customers tell me how much they have in their finished truck that a restoration shop built for them. These numbers run from $ 80,000 to $221,000, and a very good part of that is for the Shop's labor charge......But I'm also aware that a man has to do what he can afford to do, so let's just get on to the removal of Ford Truck Style Front Bed Panels and the FRONT SILL. Getting the bed off the frame, and a place to store it INSIDE while all this work is going to be done is very helpful. Then, take some fairly coarse sandpaper and start lightly sanding in the area where the spot welds are and you'll soon see how well it is to see them. Once you find them all (or THINK you've found them all) take a center punch, and punch a recess as close to the center as you can on each one. Then get a drill bit (I usually use a 3/16" bit) just to make the first hole kind of quick in all of them, then I'll come back with a 3/8" bit to get the most of the spot weld out. Then you can start separating some of the welded joint, and disassemble most of what you want to repair or replace. For this task you may also need a thin chisel to break apart what the drill bit didn't get. Of course they make a bit specifically for drilling out spot welds, and it may be worth the money , but honestly I've never personally used one myself. Once the front bed panel has been separated from the lower front cross member, my next step would be using the same tactic on the front bed panel to remove it, then to do the same with the front sill (sometimes also referred to as a cross member) by separating it from the floor nearest to the front panel. After the front bed panel and the cross member have both been completely removed front the bed, you'll be able to assess whether you will need both components to make a clean and correct repair to your bed, or if you only need one or the other of the 2 components only. Remember, at Carolina Classics F-100s we manufacture and stock these 2 parts and you'll get very quick service by ordering from us. We will ship the parts the same day, so not to hold your project up any longer than need be (unless we are out of town attending a Swap Meet or Truck Show). I'm not to sure you need a lot of details on how to install the NEW front bed panel and front bed sill from Carolina Classics. In most restoration projects, it's taking it apart that's the LEARNING EXPERIENCE. Just use the reverse process in putting it back together. Oh' and if the front floor section of your bed need to be replaced, there's nothing available on the market yet. BUT, if you can find a buddy who has a bed in the same shape that he's NOT planning to use, you can go as far back as between the wheel tubs and cut out a cross section to be trimmed and used to repair the front 4-12" of your rusted floor. AND, you will need to drill some 5/16 or 3/8 inch holes down the 2 outer edges and the bottom edge of the front bed panel, so after lining it up for the install, and securely clamping it into position, you can plug weld through the holes. then when it's all finished, you can grind these down flat, and prep for paint to give you a super smooth, but rigid result.
