Everyone says that college flies by, but you never truly realize just how quickly it goes until you blink, and the year is more than halfway over.

College is the biggest transition of people's lives. With that comes many mixed emotions- excitement, fear, happiness, anxiety and so many more. It isweird leaving all your best friends from home to go on your own journey.

The goodbyes arehard, but college friends quickly find a way to fill all the spaces in your heart.

1. Thank you for making this new, scary campus feel like home.

Finding your best friends in college is so important and makes the experience even more fun. College friends all help each other get comfortable in their new home away from home. There is an instant connection with some people you meet on campus, and that never goes away. You truly find the people you were supposed to meet in college, and form bonds quicker than ever before. College friends are more like you than anyone else. It is so easy to find and gravitate towards people who are so similar to you. With that being said, thank you for making the transition so easy for me.

2. Thank you for creating lifetimes memories with me

From going out every weekend to watching movies, you were always there. When I look back on these four years, I will think of you and the memories we made, together. All the laughs, embarrassing moments and hardships, I had you to lean on. Thank you for being the people I went to every tailgate, philanthropy event, library, dining hall and all the other random places we wandered, with. Even when we were doing the most boring activities, we found a way to make it fun, because we were together.

3. Thank you for all the road trips

The car rides to and from campus never seemed to be as long as they were because of how much fun we had on them. There are not many things I enjoy more than long talks or jam sessions, especially if it is with my best friends. Thank you for always cheering me up when its hard to leave home, because a car ride with my best friends makes going back to campus exciting.

4. Thank you for allowing me to borrow all your clothes

No one has enough clothes for all the outfits needed when going out. Thank you for never getting annoyed when I ask you to send me pictures of your entire wardrobe and then come and try practically everything on. Thank you for not getting mad when I forget to return you clothes or accidently spill on them. Most importantly, thank you for having so many cute options for me to pick from!

5. Thank you for all the advice you give me

If I ever need advice I know I can always turn to you. Sometimes it seems harsh, but I know that it is exactly what I need to hear. You always have my best interest in mind and knowing I can count on you is so comforting. I know you will never judge anything I have to say, or what I am thinking, which makes it so easy to talk to you about everything.

6. Thank you for all the slumber parties

Thank you for never hesitating to allow me to sleepover when I don't feel like walking back to my dorm late at night. If I ever am feeling lonely or need to be with my best friends, I know your door is always open to stay up all night watching movies and gossiping.

7. Thank you for not getting mad that I'm never ready on time

It didn’t take you long to catch on that I can never be on time. Seven to you, means seven thirty to me. You never get mad or annoyed when the plans must change a little because I always lose track of time.

8. Thank you for being the reason I love my school

College is only as good as you make it. You made me love my school, because I love who I go to school with. The friend I found in you is rare, and I will forever be grateful for all the times we shared. I am beyond happy and enjoy every second spent here, because of the people spending the time with me.

The relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter is something so uniquely special and something to be treasured forever.

Your grandma loves you like you are her own daughter and adores you no matter what. She is the first person you run to when you have a problem with your parents and she never fails to grace you with the most comforting advice.

She may be guilty of spoiling you rotten but still makes sure to stress the importance of being thankful and kind.

Your grandma has most likely lived through every obstacle that you are experiencing now as a young adult and always knows just exactly what to say.

She grew up in another generation where things were probably much harder for young women than they are today.

She is a walking example of perseverance, strength, and grace who you aim to be like someday.

Your grandma teaches you the lessons she had to learn the hard way because she does not want you to make the same mistakes she did when she was growing up.

Her hugs never fail to warm your heart, her smile never fails to make you smile, and her laugh never fails to brighten your day.

She inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

You only hope that one day you can be the mother and grandmother she was to you.

A piece of girl’s heart will forever belong to her grandma that no one could ever replace.

She is the matriarch of your family and is the glue that holds you all together.

Grandmothers play such an important role in helping their granddaughters to grow into strong, intelligent, kind women.

She teaches you how to love and how to forgive.

Without the unconditional love of your grandma, you would not be the woman you are today.

To all of the grandmothers out there, thank you for being you.

Sincerely,

the loving granddaughters

The Power of Good Roommates

Find the people who make you laugh til you cry and move in with them.

Going to college super far away can be hard especially when you do not know anyone going to that school. Picking people to live with is terrifying because you never know what is going to happen and everyone hears horror stories about roommates.

But when you finally get roommates who you are friends with, who you spend time with, laugh with and are overall great roommates, it is a totally different game.

I have had my fair share of roommates (living with six different people within three years of college) both pretty good and pretty crappy. It was not until recently I got three new roommates that I learned how powerful having great roommates can be.

I feel that I am a relatively easy going person so I have happily picked random roommates (all but once) but never really clicked with the people I was living with until now.

The three most recent roommates that I have have been by far the most influential and amazing roommates I've had yet. They support me, make me laugh and always include me with everything. There are days where we do nothing but lay on the floor and tag each other in videos on Facebook even though we are less than two feet away from each other.

But most importantly it amazes me how much good roommates can change your overall life.

I used to be a person who rolled through the motions, got stressed WAY too easily, was easily upset and would try way too hard to live a perfect life. But now I am more easy going, I laugh a whole lot more, cry a whole lot less and am comfortable going with the flow. And most importantly HAPPIER.

The very first night one of the new roommates moved in, she knocked on my door and asked me to go bowling with her and some friends (one which was another one of our roommates). We went and I didn't know anyone but had such a good time. Before this night I would sit in my room and not talk to any of my roommates because they were friends while I was not very close with them.

Flash forward a month to day…

Two of us were home and both wanted to go out as a group and both texted the other one to come home so we could all hangout. We are always laughing and smiling, telling jokes, checking in on classes or just how the day went. I used to never want to leave the house or my room but now I feel weird sitting in my room and not being with them.

The greatest part about meeting these people is that I know when we all move out of the apartment in a month I will still have great friends.

You may have roommates that you hate, you may have roommates that you "live with" and you might have roommates that you love. There is so much power in finding people you click with, so I challenge you to find those people who make you want to dance around the living room and laugh until you cry.
