I’m always writing about growing up and I think I’ll be “growing up” for the rest of my life. I have the best family ever and when I went to college I didn’t have my five family members there all the time. I needed to get through all the rough times on my own, but I couldn’t have done it without all the great people I’ve met in the past two years.

1. My non-judgmental friend

I could tell you anything and you would never judge me for anything. Nothing I could say is ever too crazy or too wild to tell you. We get kind of crazy together and I know you’re always down for a good time. Let's go out on a Thurs? You’ll be there. You’re probably my most edgy friend too, so I’m tryin’ to keep my street cred very cool.

2. My girl that has been there since the beginning

Can’t make friends in your classes? No way. I made my best college friend in my first class of freshmen year. You thought my outfit was a mess the first day, but we’ve been yelling “LIT” and having each other’s backs since the beginning. Cheers! I don’t know what I would do without you and I truly cannot go 24 hours without hanging out with you.

3. My most LIT friend and most HUMBLE homie

You’re the coolest and most hilarious person I’ve ever met. Your humor is so underrated — you’ll roast me and have my back until the end. You’re humble as heck and I don’t know what I’d do without you telling me “everything is going to work out.” Thanks for having my back when we go out and always being a good time gal.

4. My friend of a friend that turned into my BFF

I never really thought we had so much in common. When you’re stressing about some guy I understand everything that you feel or if you’re worried about our friends judging you I completely get where you’re coming from. Stay true to you and don’t worry about people not liking you, girl!

5. My grown-up friend

I want to be as organized and put together as her because she can wear a t-shirt and still have her sh*t together. She has her life planned out and I have respect for her being a grown a** woman.

We may have met in our classes or from a mutual friend, but either way, I’m thankful for all of you and I can’t wait for us to be friends forever.
