What I Learned: From My Best Friend

My best friend is awesome
           I've known her for 11 years and I think of her as cooler and cooler all the time. We've been through a lot together - everything from ironing on pictures of our movie star crushes on to the backs of our denim jackets, to stealing an older kid's cigarette and smoking it in my back yard (a failed pathetic experiment, by the by), to moving to LA to become movie stars and instead drinking our own body weight in margaritas and going to the beach... We've done it all. 
           I'm always learning cool stuff from her. She keeps me updated on tons of my need-to-know film, Broadway and pop-culture news, she finds a way to make every cool hair accessory known to man, she even taught me how to distill my own jalapeno vodka. 
In an homage to her amazingness, I thought I would share with you some of the many things I have learned from her. 
You're welcome.
