To My Old Highschool Friends' New College Friends, Take Good Care Of Them

You don't know how lucky you are.


Dear New College Friend(s),

Hi! I know we have never personally met before, but hopefully, I was either brought up in conversation or have been seen through a picture. If not I was your friend/roommates friend in high school. Let me tell you, I would take your place any day just to be with my friend again, however, I'm thousands of miles away from them, and honestly some days it's harder than others. I hope that you guys are making so many new and exciting memories, and experiencing college to the fullest. I have been extremely lucky to call them my friends for so long now and you're definitely in for a wild adventure.

Now you may be wondering why I am writing to you, and that's because I'm giving you a huge job: to take care of my friends until I return over winter break. Now I know that may sound like a daunting task, but don't worry they have grown into beautiful young adults that they can hold their own.

However, I just have three simple requests for you.

One, when they cry over the stresses of school or you notice that they aren't themselves, make them smile. I always tried to cheer them up in the simplest ways; they all also like food so you can never go wrong with that!

Two, when a crush or a boy/girl likes them, support them and always be ready to give advice. However, if you know that they are bad news, do me a favor and tell them that just so they can avoid heartbreak.

Finally, be the go-to person in their life. I know that being so far away from home I have found my core group of college friends and I'm sure your friends from high school have found theirs. I only ask you this because you are becoming friends with the most amazing people ever, and even though you might not realize it now you will soon find out. They have shaped me into the person I am today, and I only hope they can do the same to you. But I am giving you my warning now if you dare try to hurt my friend, I will fly all the way back home to hurt you right back.

Love Always!

To My Best Friend And Roommate, I Am So Proud Of The Woman You Are Today

Through the years, I've watched you grow up with me, and I couldn't be prouder of everything you have accomplished.


Sophomore year of high school seems like just yesterday, and so long ago all in the same breath. That was the year we met, and where our whirlwind of a friendship started. I can't believe we were just 15 years old, sitting in classes together, and not realizing the journey we'd be put on, and where it would bring us today.

I have seen you grow through the years. From the bad breakups, especially the one that brought us together in the first place, to you accomplishing things like getting into so many amazing colleges, and graduating damn near the top of our class in high school. I have seen you through the highs and lows of high school. I've also been blessed to see you grow through our college years. I wasn't kidding when I told you I cried when I got the text from you saying you decided to go to UF. Words can not express how happy I have been to be your roommate these past 3 years and to see you blossom into the woman you are today.

You are doing so many amazing things with your life. You are graduating this year, and starting on your Master's. You are accomplishing your dreams and you are just stepping foot into the career you've hoped for. You have found happiness in the life you are living and when I say I'm one of your biggest fans, I mean it because your happiness brings me happiness. You are my best friend and I rejoice in your accomplishments, and when you feel low, I do too. I never thought that I could have a connection with a friend as deep as I do with you. You are not only my roommate, but you are also my best friend, one of my closest confidants, my late night Glee binge partner, the person that I have come to have so many inside jokes with, and so much more beyond that.

So as I come to realize that this may very well be the last few months we live together, I will cherish these times. I will cherish all of the nonstop giggle fits we have on the couch, the endless rants we have about how boys can be so stupid sometimes, all of the late night trips for food because for some reason our bodies always crave the same junk food. I will cherish everything because I know that while we are growing up, we are also growing into ourselves. I have seen you grow into an amazingly beautiful, wonderful, self-confident, headstrong woman, and I could not be more proud of you. I have learned so much through the years by being your friend, and I can only hope that it's in God's will that we continue to stay friends.

I love you to the moon and back Jas.
