My 2 New BFFs

When Jen and Mel said they were the two best friends we always needed but didn’t know we wanted, they weren’t kidding! I used to shirk housework and chores, but now, I actually look forward to it because it gives me a chance to catch up with my hilarious, witty, and knowledgeable new BFFs!

As someone who no longer has a TV, newspaper, or social life and is buried under a groaning weight of academic reading and writing, I may know of things such as Instagram or the Kondo method through hearsay but not necessarily through personal experience. Listening to Mel and Jen’s insightful comments delivered with their trademark wit and sass has not only been a much-needed breath of fresh air in my life but also an education!

In addition to being the friends I never knew I needed, these ladies have also been the therapists I never realized I required! Whether it’s been helping me to work out issues I am facing with friendships or making me hate myself less for not being able to run a perfect house while being a perfect academic, this podcast has not only been an education but a revelation! I kid you not, but I was literally folding my laundry when listening to Jen and Mel talk about how they often put off folding their laundry just because they hate doing it! Your BFF, then, is not just a podcast; it’s that sigh of relief you heave as you realize that you don’t have to pursue that elusive ghost perfection, it’s a lesson learnt in not hating yourself for overbuying because you have no idea what lurks in your pantry, it’s your muscles relaxing after a lifetime of tautness as it dawns on you that maybe the quest for the holy grail, better known as the immaculate closet, is a futile one, it’s the lightness on your shoulders as you literally feel the weight of the world slip off it in the realization that you are not alone in staring at taunting piles of laundry that refuse to fold themselves no matter how much you snap at them like Mary Poppins! And though I’ve been working consciously on being a better housekeeper as part of the lifestyle changes I’ve been forced to make of late, it’s hard to write that A-level paper AND have a clean house AND cook nutritious meals AND get that laundry folded all on a regular basis! This pressure of balancing work, self-care, and chores often makes me feel overwhelmed, makes me feel like a failure in every aspect of my life. Your BFF is not just a podcast. Oh no! It is the permission you give your body, that it so desperately craves, to let go and just be!

So, thank you, ladies, for my Sunday epiphany! I’m really looking forward to the new episodes! And for all you listeners out there, make sure Mel and Jen become your new BFFs too! A bonus is listening to Ryan’s stellar guitarwork on the intro and the outro! Jen, you were already my BFF for knowing what it feels like to be in love with the enigmatic Mr. Stradlin! Mel, you are totally my new BFF for saying you will love Michael Jackson forever!

Your BFF is really Your BFF

Your BFF is an amazing podcast! Mel is such a great host and is so open and honest about her struggles but also gives hope and funny insight into how to make the most of anything life can throw at you! Her sincerity and heart, along with her down to earth charm and wit, brings out the best in both her guests and you! She gives you so much to laugh, cry, and think about! Highly recommend it! 💖
