How am I supposed to survive without these people?
When I first came to college, I, like everyone else, was really nervous about making friends. I know I'm an outgoing person and can basically talk to anyone, but college is a whole new ballgame. Going from a high school with less than 100 girls in my graduating class to a college where there are over 4,000 people in my year alone was a pretty scary thought.
On the drive up, I was feeling a mix of excitement and nervousness, not really knowing what I was about to get into. I hadn't yet met my roommate, so knowing I was about to live with someone I didn't even know for about 8 months was nerve wracking.
Now, though, I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to not be with my friends for all of summer. In the months we've been together, we've become like a little family. My floor has gotten so close, I can walk into almost anyone's room just to say hi or to see what they're doing.
Even me and my roommate have become close. We might not have started off that way, but now I'm not really sure how I'm supposed to go to bed without hearing her munching on some Doritos of Cheetos at 11 pm every night.
I know I probably won't stay friends with everyone that was on my floor, but I really hope we can at least stay in touch, and of course we'll have those slightly awkward waves when we pass each other going to class.
To all my friends at college, thank you for helping me when I'm stressed, for making me laugh, for going out with me and having the best times, and for so many more things.
Thank you for making freshman year the best I could've hoped it could be.
