To the guy who brought me out of my comfort zone on the first day:
It was the first Honor's meeting and everyone at our table sat on their phone as a social reflex. After roughly twenty minutes of doing so, you asked the group a question and the rest flowed right into place. We bonded over similar interests, and before I knew it I was over at your dorm almost every day. Introducing me to your roommate, another great friend now. We would sit for hours without anyone saying a word and that was perfectly okay. It was not until later that I found out how introverted you are, yet you still put yourself out there to make us all comfortable. Thank you for helping me feel so at home at JSU.
To the girls of the fourth-floor library:
Not really sure how we all became friends, but I do know we have spent almost every week together eating soup and bonding over shared experiences. We have laughed ourselves silly over facial expressions and misspoken words. I would not change our times on that floor for anything. Thank you all for being there when times were hard and for all of the full-blown tackle hugs. Seriously, someone should recruit these girls.
To the girl who understands:
We weren't initially friends but we had overlapping friend groups. Over time we became closer and soon enough everyone weeded themselves out of the friend group. I appreciate our thrift store trips and Eno conversations about life. Thank you for sticking it out longer than the rest and for seeing life the way it truly is. Lastly, thank you for always having my back.
Thank you to everyone in-between that has helped shape my college experience.
