I just want to the time to reflect on how lucky I am to have the people in my life that I have. People like Danielle who I cannot see or hear from for a solid two months, even though we live a mile from each other and have zero hurt feelings on either end. We pick up right where we left off and spend the night laughing like crazy and sharing silly secrets like ten year olds at a sleepover. I think it must be all the time we spent together in the dorm. There are no insecurities in our friendship; we mean exactly the same thing to each other.
Mackenzie drives me batty fairly often, if I’m being honest. We definitely have different life philosophies, and sometimes, as roomies that is exhausting. However, she is the most welcoming, friendly person I’ve EVER met, and has a very big heart. I really need to give her more credit. Most of the time, we are more than able to have a good time together, and she is still one of my best friends.
Chris is, without a doubt the funniest guy, maybe the funniest person I know. Sometimes I think a higher-power tells him to call or text when I need a laugh because it never ever fails. He ALWAYS does.
Melissa—I know you are probably the only person in the world reading this and I want you to know how thankful I am to know and see that you still care about me. You’re very strong and I love you.
Corey is a friend that I have recently gotten closer to; he has been in at least one of my classes since spring semester freshman year and we just starting hanging out outside of class. He and I have a lot of the same questions about the world and have incredibly interesting and lengthy conversations. He also makes a hell of a drink.
Candace is my best friend. I have hard time going more than week with a half hour conversation with her. She is everything I am not (unapologetic, quiet, and comparably less worried about what others think) and I love it. We have the same sense of humor though, and laugh until we cry a lot. I trust her completely not to judge me. All of her family is great, too. They have accepted me as part of their “circle” along with her very close friends from High school and I have such fun with all of them.
And then there’s Annie, not much to say about her, except that she’s so kind and so non-judgmental that it’s insane! She knows how to let her hair down too. Plus, her boy, Sam, restores my faith in men. He is so good to her. He is everything a boyfriend should be and he doesn’t even know it.
I’m writing this down because important for me to be able to go back and read it when I feel lonely. There is no reason for those feelings. Look at all the fabulous friends I have!!
