When You Meet Your College Best Friend, The Rest All Comes Together

When You Meet Your College Best Friend, The Rest All Comes Together

You met her within five hours of moving in. Lucky duck.


College is a scary time.

Especially when none of your friends are going to the same school as you. Thankfully, you found your new best friend on your move in day. And thank God for her. You were stressed, tired, unknowing of the journey you were about to embark on together. She was bubbly and fun, just like you. You two immediately clicked and you just knew she was already a ride-or-die.

There's a lot to be said about the friends you make in college. Everyone always says that your college friends will be your friends for life. That doesn't mean you still don't love your high school best friend 'til death do you part. But, you need someone at your college who knows exactly what you're feeling.

It's so funny when your new best friend could finish your sentences at your first hall dinner. When she knew everything you were talking about, and got your sense of humor perfectly. She also somehow knows when you're free for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, after you've only had classes for one week. You've also had breakfast together almost every day since school started. Uh, except that one time you slept in (oopsies).

You're grateful you found someone to go to football games, soccer games, and all of the weird activities the college makes you do. She's someone you can vent to and laugh with, and that is priceless. Sometimes you two even hit the gym and miraculously want to leave to get dinner at the exact same time. You're both on the same page 24/7. The small things like how you hate pickles and she loves them, so you give yours to her, are what makes your new friendship seem like it's meant to be. And it is. Maybe, just maybe, you two got separated at birth and she's actually your twin. Except that you both have different hair, eyes, and height, but that doesn't mean much, right?

You can't wait to see what you two accomplish together over the next four years.

The 10 Stages Of A 2:30 P.M. Kickoff, As Told By Alabama Students

But we still say Roll MF Tide!


We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness


What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst


It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen


Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad


Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin


Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate


Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny


More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body


Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 


Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.


I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!
