As we begin coming to a close of our freshman year at JSU, I started asking my friends about their favorite memories. Here, you will find memories of how my friends and I met and grew closer this year.

1. Sarah Boger, Freshman

"My favorite memory is sitting on the football field until 3 in the morning after a football game. We talked, laughed, and just laid there. It was one of the key bonding moments for our friend group and helped to establish that I was where I belonged."

2. Ashleigh Crouch, Freshman

"I don't have a specific memory, I just love all the times we hang out in the basement of our dorm or in the rec center and just chill because I feel like I can be my true self with y'all, and I don't ever feel like I have to get dressed up or hide who I am."

3. Destiny Paris-Cartwright

"Mine is Disney Trivia Night. We laughed, made memories, and won! I love being able to be competitive with the people I love. Also, taking pictures before Christmas and taking pictures recently!"

4. Britney Ryals, Freshman

"Mine is when I went to the Morgan Wallen concert and meet you, Sarah, and Cortney because it set the path to finding the friends that become family."

5. Megan O'Connor, Freshman

"it's hard to pick out my favorite moment from freshman year honestly, but I would have to say one of the best ones was when I went to The Factory which is in Gadsden, Alabama for the first time, and I went with Freshman Forum. We as a group went and had a "lock-in" where we got to stay there overnight and have full reign of the bouncy room area till around 7 am the next morning. Since it was around the first few weeks of actually being in the forum so I didn't know many people, and this whole retreat was a way to break the ice between everyone and get to know our groups. However, I had met a girl named Destiny during the interview phase of it all, and we really clicked, and thankfully we both made it. I loved hanging out with her and everyone else in the forum, and it was super cool to get to know her more, She's been a super good friend to me over the year, and I can thank The Forum, and The Factory for that!"

6. Cortney Salster, Freshmen

"One of my favorite memories of my freshman year in college would have to be attending the play "She Kills Monsters." I enjoyed watching the actors/actresses go beyond their ability to make the play so exhilarating and seem so realistic. I had such a great time."

7. Kelsie Pence, Freshman (Me)

"My favorite memory of freshman year is coming back from Christmas break. I was so excited to see my friends. When I walked into Fitzpatrick and went to their rooms, they were just as excited to see me. I love that I've made friends that make going home so hard."

10 Photos You Have On Your Camera Roll Of Your S.O. When You've Been Dating For More Than A Year

A wide range from "Aw" to "WTF?"

My boyfriend and I just hit the year and a half mark of dating, even though it seems like we've been together forever. Over the months, we've taken many pictures together... from football games, to his track meets, to holidays. Although we may have a lot of pictures together, I definitely have a lot of candids of him in my camera roll. If you've been dating your partner for as long as I have or longer, then you'll probably notice you have these same pictures in your photos as well.

1. The awkward first photos together

We laugh at these now, especially this one. Why am I so pale compared to him? It was July! And also, we noticed not to long ago that I was sweating under my arms and his underarms were sweating on me... what a great first time meeting!

2. The ones for VSCO

Every girl who has a significant other posts them onto their VSCO. VSCO is like Instagram, but more has more aesthetically pleasing pictures and there are no "likes." The pictures that include my boyfriend on my VSCO ranges from him holding a bunny to him holding my hand while we went ice skating.

3. Them sleeping

I have so many pictures of my boyfriend sleeping (I promise it's not as weird as it sounds), I just think he's so cute when he's fast asleep while cuddling with me.

4. The embarrassing ones they want no one to see

He's going to kill me when he sees this... but we all have those embarrassing Snapchat pictures that we start to send each other because we've gotten more comfortable with one another.

5. The ones for Facebook

The good looking pictures so you can keep yours and his family updated on how you two are doing. I took my boyfriend to a baby bird meet and greet since he loves birds and has one for a pet. I posted this cute picture of him and his new friends on Facebook so my family can see our adventures together.

6. Old pictures

One of the best parts of dating someone is finally seeing their old pictures. Although, sometimes they may make you cringe... like the one I posted above of my boyfriend after prom in his sophomore year of high school.

7. Their accomplishments

My boyfriend pole vaults for his college and he's really good at it. He just went to division III nationals in March because he qualified! I'm always at his meets so I make sure to get him on video in case he or anyone wants to see. I always try to snag a picture with him too because I'm always so proud.

8. The straight up ugly ones

He sure knows how to make me laugh. And I know he's going to be mad at me for this one too but I think it's a talent that he can do that with his stomach! Sorry, Adam, I promise I still think you look good when you send me these snaps for the most part.

9. But you have the hot ones too

He may be funny and sweet, but he is pretty good looking too. I know us girls keep some attractive pictures of our S.O.'s so we can remind ourselves of what a great looking partner we have.

10. FaceTime screenshots

If you and your lover go to different colleges like my boyfriend and I do, then FaceTiming happens a lot. Sometimes I get some great screenshots, like the one above, to make fun of him later.

Sorry, But My Roommates Are Better Than Yours

They are the girls that have seen me both at my best and my worst.

I never moved out for college until my junior year in college. It was a scary challenge for me because I was and still am so close to my family. I feared rejection and not fitting in with others, because I am aware of the fact that I am different than most girls my age.

The first few weeks in a house full of 16 other women was really hard and mainly lonely. I felt like I was trapped within myself, until the day I decided downstairs to do my homework. As I was sitting there, three girls slowly joined me and their names are Kortni, Zoey, and Destiny.

These women have become some of my closest friends. They each have taught me to adore the small and unexpected things that life brings our way.

Most of our "gals nights" consist of eating, mainly a carb (or 2) and watching funny tv shows. We sometimes might lookout nice and fancy and go eat Mexican food, but my favorite moments when are when we are just together.

I could never imagine having this college experience without them and it breaks my heart to know that we only have a few days left together of living in the same house.

Sometimes all I need after a day at school and work is to sit at the dining room table and vent to them. They have empowered me to do so many fun things over the past couple of months. I am certain that my life would be extremely boring without them.

I know that when we all move out that our friendship will not end, but instead it will be stronger. They have truly changed how I view things in this world. I hope they know how much they mean to me because their friendship is priceless.

Moving off to college can be scary, but it can be one of the most rewarding things a girl can do if you are surrounded by the right people. The friends you make in college are some that will last a lifetime, and I couldn't be more thankful for the ones that I have made thus far.

This letter is to my roommates who became my closest friends. Kortni, Zoey, and Destiny, you each mean so much to me and I hope you know how thankful I am for you each and every day.
