To My College Friends, Thank You For Being My People

Thank you for doing this crazy thing called life with me.

To My College Friends, Thank You For Being My People

That one decision to come to college at URI is on the list of one of the best decisions I have made in my life.

It's crazy to think that if even one of us decided to go to another school, the friendships that we formed would have never happened. I could not imagine going through college with any other group of friends and am so glad I met you all. In a way, we grew up together, or at least tried to grow up from the immature, lost and confused 18 year-olds we were when we met.

Going off to college was so scary, but we somehow all gravitated together and formed the amazing friendships we have today. We don't all have this whole "adult thing" down and we kind of just go off each other for advice on things, but I wouldn't want to have it any other way. It's us against the world sometimes, and that's OK because we have each other to lean on.

You are my people, my best friends, my family, my therapists, all compiled into one.

The memories we have made together are ones that I will cherish forever, and not hesitate to bring up at all your weddings. From going out every weekend together, to study sessions, dining hall dates, and trips to the beach, you are all always down for an adventure.

I am proud of each and every one of you, and watching you all follow your dreams and pursuing your degrees, is so inspiring to watch. You are all amazing people who I am blessed to call my friends. No matter where we end up in life, I will always consider you my forever friends. Thank you for always being there to support me, with anything I do and continuing to accept me even after I mess up (which I do often).

Thank you for dragging me out of my bed every weekend and creating memories with me. I can't wait to see what the rest of college has in store for us. It is going to be weird after graduation and not all being a 10-minute drive each other, and not being able to go out and hang out at random hours of the night.

No matter the distance that eventually comes between us, I will always consider you my people, my best friends, my therapists, and my family.

You are my people.

Love always.

Yep. The weather is fine up here... I've totally never heard that before.


Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements. I can assure that all tall people are tired of being asked what the weather is like "up here", but here are a few other things we don't want to hear anymore.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
