A Love Letter to My Best Friends

A Love Letter to My Best Friends


To the two most wonderful pals a girl could wish for,

I don’t understand what I did to get so lucky, but I need to start by saying that you are more incredible than you can possibly imagine.

I don’t really believe in fate, but the chances that our paths would ever cross were slim, so I feel like I either made the perfect decisions, or there was a reason for all of the questionable ones.

Whatever reason, I truly won the lottery, not just in knowing you, but in being a part of our relationship.

I can’t think of anything I wouldn’t do for you, and I hope you know that.

Mostly this is a thank you, because I don’t know where I would be without you.

Thank you for accepting me for everything that I am.

Thank you for being there always no questions asked.

Thank you for picking up (and telling me to keep calling until I do).

Thank you for brunch.

And for dinners that last 7 hours.

Thank you for far too many tequila shots.

Thank you for water (with ice).

Thank you for your constant reassurance.

Thank you for being too wonderful for words.

Thank you for getting me.

It’s been an up and down year, but I’m glad I have you to go up and down with.

I appreciate you more than you will ever know.

All of my love,

Mal xx




The Emotional Conflict of Living Two Lives

The Emotional Conflict of Living Two Lives

I’m home for the summer, and while it’s only been a fortnight, I’m feeling a little lonely.

Not entirely, but in the same way I always kind of feel, which I’m starting to realise is always going to be the hard part in living so far away from home for so much of the year.

My family are all in Victoria, while my friends are in South Australia (these are different states in Australia for my international friends).

I love being home, I grew up here and my mum is my bff, but now, more than ever before I love being in South Australia, where I’m studying.

Which is where this part loneliness comes in, I’m starting to feel like my life cannot ever be whole. Read more
