Thank you for being there for me, supporting me, and becoming my best friend.
College roommates create an everlasting bond between two people who are in the process of learning what it’s like to live on their own.
Dear College Roommate,
Can you believe we shared a 10x10 room together for months? I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else! Living away from home for the first time in my life was hard, but you made my adjustment much more bearable until I was comfortable. Thank you for listening to me call my mom 7584598 times a day to ask for help or just update on my life. Thank you for all the times we spent Facetiming my little brother and giving him advice when I wasn’t there, and for all the times we called my uncle when we needed some comedic relief and a good laugh. Let's not forget you making my birthday extra special!! You welcomed my family as much as you welcomed me into my life and helped me to feel comforted in my new “home.”
Thank you for the 2 a.m. late night cries about stress, boys, friendship troubles and life in general. You never judged me but worked to understand where I was coming from in order to give me advice that I needed. Crying to you helped me realize that we're all human and it’s okay to need help or just a shoulder to lean on. You were always there to pick me up when I fell face first and encourage me to do my best.
Thank you for being my personal alarm clock and making sure I was up and ready for my 9 a.m. class. Thank you for texting me throughout the day and making sure I was okay, and for all the times you sat with me when you could tell I needed some extra help on a difficult day. Thank you for visiting me at work, the drives to chipotle and the forever memorable visits to the cute boy at Verizon and beauty of the waterfall. Thank you for the inside jokes, screams at the top of our lungs over who knows what and the “Tinaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, are you serious” whenever I did something dumb (LOL) let's not talk about it.
Thank you for all the times we needed a break from life and busted out into song and dance, the clothes we shared, the pink perfume I used for weeks straight, for dealing with my messy and unorganized side of the room, the over flowing garbage pail and the setting powder I always dropped on the floor. Thank you dealing with all my unfortunate quirks and the messes I made.
Thank you for showing me the true meaning of friendship; after seeing the good, the bad, and the ugly (my great decisions to do my makeup in the dark) you always saw the best in me. Thank you for focusing on all the positives in life, your love for naps and the random notes you left me saying you hope I had a good day. Your random acts of kindness taught me that being a good person is the only thing that truly matters.
I’m so proud of everything you accomplished this year. You are a beautiful soul and intelligent strong and capable women who is going to succeed in everything you set your mind to! I’ll always be there for you as you were for me. I love you
Your biggest fan,
