Arianna, my best friend, is a superhero. I’m not even 100% sure if I should write her full name so potential employers can find this via Google or not, but she’s so awesome I just had to share with you how lucky I am to have such a bright, shining star in my life.
I met Arianna my senior year in high school in a creative writing class. She sat next to me in her jean jacket and peace sign tee shirt and immediately began to talk to me with this annoyingly cheerful tone. (I did not enjoy high school… I was not pleasant.) I don’t think it took longer than a week for her to break me. We became really good friends.
Arianna is the most dedicated, most reliable friend I’ve ever had. She is seriously the one person on this planet (besides my own mother, of course) that I could call on and have no doubts about being there to support me. I could say “Hey Arianna, I joined this clan and we need to sacrifice a virgin… know anyone?” And within the hour she’d have a sweet virgin at my doorstep.
Okay not really. But you get the point.
Not only is she an awesome friend, but she’s seriously on a mission to save the world. She’s one of those people out there making a difference. She’s traveling the country right now bouncing from farm to farm and exploring all these awesome workshops on sustainable living and agriculture. She’s totally into recycling, reusing, and creating the best possible outcome from everything she does. We all make our mark on the world, and she wants hers to be as painless as possible.
If one day I suddenly disappear, it’s because we’ve gone off-grid to start a hippie commune together. Just so you know…
This is her working on her first official farm earlier this. The video below is about Sustainable Kashi in Sebastian, Florida. She’s in there… the hottie from Chicago.

Now you have an idea of how wonderful she is. Do you have a friend that inspires you to be a better person? I’d love to hear all about it!
