To my college best friend,

Coming to Syracuse University, I am most grateful for people like you. Without you, I would not have the same love for my school.

Of course, I have some of the most genuine friends from my hometown. That bond, however, was created over the span of many, many years. It bewilders me that I have formed the same bond with you at Syracuse in about a year and a half, unlike the numerous years for others.

It's honestly surprising, shocking, and baffling to go back to a time when I did not know you. It was only a year and a half ago, but somehow, you make up most of my life. I have been able to come to college and find people like you who fit me like a puzzle.

Thank you for the craziest nights out, but also the nights where we stay in watching movies and binge eating chips and queso.

Thanks for making me laugh until my stomach aches in the dining hall hacking up dry chicken.

Thanks for singing with me on the top of our lungs driving for hours on end.

Thanks for chatting and gossiping with me until the wee hours of the morning, instead of studying.

Thanks for making goofy videos taste testing the weirdest foods which I look back on and laugh until I cry.

A day without you feels like a whole month. You, my best friend, are my family at school and make every day a little brighter.

So thank you for making my life at Syracuse amazing. You have accepted me and allowed me to grow and develop while away at college. You have seen me at my worst when I am a zombie walking around after an all-nighter, but you have also seen me at my best when I am crazy and silly.

You are the absolute best!

Love,

Your college best friend.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.

My Roomie Is My Bestie, And I Appreciate Her Very Much

I appreciate you, boo.

It is no secret that college can sometimes be crazy. One minute someone is stressed and crying over an assignment due the next day, and next thing you know, they are laughing hysterically with their friends. Friends can be so important in life, no matter how much people insist or cynically joke that they "hate people." If it weren't for the support and care of my family and friends, like my roommate, I would not be where and who I am at Longwood University today.

For those who have not seen how my roommate and I act, there are some ways we can be pretty different. Elizabeth is a Biology major and I am an English major, which basically makes our learning experiences two different planets on the same campus. While she forever binge-watches shows like "Grey's Anatomy" or "Law and Order: SVU", I spend my free time writing, looking at memes, or watching movies. Another interesting contrast between us is our wardrobe choices; she likes lighter colors while I like darker colors. Living together has united us to share and accept each other's weirdness whether I am busting out laughing about something that makes no sense at all or she is rearranging her furniture at 8 o'clock at night. For the first few weeks of college, I had no idea how to interpret our differences, but now I clearly see that she is the chocolate to my peanut butter!

Even though we have surface level differences, Elizabeth and I are alike in the ways that really count when it comes to being really good friends. We both understand the craziness of our family and friends because we approach most situations in similar ways. There have been nights where neither of us could sleep, and we find ourselves having the most therapeutic late night chat sessions till one in the morning that help us navigate the next step of our lives. Although we go through various situations, my roommate and I end up relating to or conquering our problems together. On the other hand, we also embrace each other's victories, whether it be a good grade on a big assignment or joining a new club on campus!

Elizabeth is a crazy, silly human being who never doubts herself, and I think we balance each other out. Sometimes we help bring one another back to planet Earth, and other times, we are boosting each other up to do our best. She supports everything I do with my major, despite not liking much about English in general, and I do the same for her. No matter how much we flame each other about pretty much anything, I know that we both have each other's back at the end of the day, and I am so grateful that she is my roommate.
