To my dearest college roommate(s),
To start, thank you for everything you do. Thanks for the late night talk sessions, laughs, and cries. Thank you for being you and helping me become me. Most importantly thank you for becoming one of my closest friends.
From dorm to apartment, you have still become one of the people who probably knows me inside out best since leaving home and living on my own. I am so thankful that we can be comfortable and be ourselves around each other. I can never put up a front with you because you’ll know instantly that I am not being me. I love that we can discuss school, research, and our hobbies even if they aren't very similar, you still try to understand. Every girl needs a friend like that, and luckily you are mine.
I’ve gone through three years of college and through it all, you’ve been there for me. As I hopefully have been there for you in the same way. I am so happy that we didn’t hate each other or be the roommate nightmare I am sure we have all read, seen, or heard about. Instead I would say we’ve become pretty good friends if not besties. I genuinely appreciate all of our weird thoughts and conversations that come about while hanging out, or just when we are all cooking dinner. I won’t name specifics so that we don’t embarrass ourselves.You are my partners in crime and we are the masters at getting into mischief. We can play with whatever wheelchair we find or jump into the pool at 2am at the apartment complex. And just a final warning, if you ever put olives in my food, I will put my red underwear into your white clothes in the washing machine (just kidding. Or am I?)
Boy issues? We can all say we are professional therapists when it comes to giving each other advice. Even if the advice didn’t seem to work. it’ll be better next time. Clothes? Sure my closet is yours, except that one dress that I warned you about not wearing because it’s my favorite. But, if you’re going on a date, I better get to help you pick your outfit. Are you worried about school? No stress, let's have a movie night and relax to get rid of whatever troubles you have. Ice cream pints, pizza, and cookies are the ultimate problem solvers. No matter what the drama, it’s no issue,because we are invincible when we stand together (or so we think.)
From running around as freshman listening to Trap Queen and Pretty Boy Swag and having dance parties in our dorm to now (nothing as actually changed except we listen to Molly Cyrus), thank you roomie(s) for loving me and helping me grow. You have helped make my college experience what it is and without y'all I’d definitely be lost.
I can’t wait to be your bridesmaid. Love Always,
