They all said it would fly by so fast, that in just a blink of an eye we would be seniors. They were right, and now here we are preparing for our final year of college. There have been so many experiences that have shaped my life and so many people that I have been fortunate enough to have met. In three short weeks we will be back strolling through the halls of Sacred Heart University, counting down the days till graduation.
It has been an unforgettable three years. Through all the good times and all the bad times, there has been one person who has been by my side the whole time and that person is you — my best friend. I remember the first night we were really friends. It seems like it was just yesterday. We were only freshmen, and we were eager to find a house party. When the night was over, and we stumbled to our friend’s car, we sang the ABCs so it would distract us from the possibility that we might actually throw up. Now three years later, and we have yet to get sick of each other.
Whether it was accompanying me to the library for long nights of studying, being ready in 20 minutes when I wanted to go to the spring concert our junior year at the last possible minute or Chipotle dinner dates — you did it all with me. College has not always been full of smiles, and often it took more than singing the ABCs in order to cheer each other up. When life got the best of me, it was comforting to know I had you to lean on, you're always there for me, even when you know I'm wrong. Thank you for being that person.
Now there is one last adventure I want you to go on with me— senior year. Sure, it’s scary to think of it as our last year as college students, minimal responsibility, expected to grow up in just two semesters. It's the last time we'll probably live together, but on the other hand, it's our time to shine. Here’s to one last year of daily Dunkin' runs and last-night-turned-into-early-morning study sessions, G Star Tuesdays, and of course, one last year of more incredible memories.
Let’s promise to never take any moment of the next year for granted, and let’s be open to new experiences and opportunities! Nine months from now, the life have been accustomed to will be over, and we'll have to walk away from it, but there’s no other person I would rather have walking next to me.
