An Open Letter To The Best Friend I Made In College
Samantha Davey

Dear Adri,

It's crazy to think that we have become such close friends in such a short amount of time. I find it hard to believe that my boyfriend grew up with you, and you just so happened to transfer to UAlbany and I met you. It's like we were meant to be best friends, right?

Elvis told me how alike we were and how close of friends we would become. I was so happy that I would be introduced to a new person here at UAlbany, especially since I had gone through my first year here and felt like I didn't have many friends. But I'm so glad you came along because you're honestly one of the only people here at college that truly gets me and always understands what I'm thinking. We always look at each other and know what we're thinking and just start laughing, and after these moments I'm just mindblown at the fact that Elvis was right...we are literally the same people in two different bodies (lol).

Sometimes I wish we met sooner, but I think you came at the right time. Sometimes I also forget that we became friends such a short time ago because it feels like we've been friends for years. In just one semester, we have created so many memories I will always cherish, and I know there are so much more to come. From our Target and Marshals trips to watching YouTube videos in bed and eating ice cream. I'm so happy you have become one of my lifelong friends here at college and we get to experience this crazy journey together.

Thank you for being my friend, Adri. Without you, I wouldn't have a best friend not only here at college, but in life. Thank you for always being there to support and motivate me, to comfort me and for being my right hand. I'll always do the same for you and be there whenever you need me. I love you, here's to being forever friends.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.
