To My College Friends As I Leave For Summer

To My College Friends As I Leave For Summer

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you for making my year one to remember. Just two years ago, I had no clue who you were and now I could not imagine my day, let alone my life, without you. From study sessions to meal dates to heart to hearts, you make each of my days better. I could not imagine calling or texting anyone else as soon as I have a minute free to meet up or just talk.

Before we head home for the summer, I have a few thank you's for you.

Thank you for being my cheerleaders. All those good luck messages before exams and motivational pep-talks got me through this year.

Thank you for listening. Even though sometimes my rants may have been uncalled for, thank you for listening and giving me advice. You may have not had to take that exam, deal with that ridiculous group project, or get through that horrible professor, but you sure as heck got me through it.

Thank you for caring. Whether it is about drama with home friends (who you don't even know but still give me advice about) or about how I'm feeling when I'm sick, you caring about my well-being got me through the bad days. And I know my mom thanks you, too.

Thank you for all of the fun. I know sometimes I can get too focused on work and forget to relax, and more importantly have fun. Without you, there would have been waaaay less belly laughs, fun nights, and memories.

Thank you for teaching me what a true friend is. Before college, I never thought that I would find my ~people~ at school. That's so cliche, right? ...Then I found you.

It is safe to say that I will miss all of my friends from college over the summer. But texts will be non-stop and FaceTime WILL be a necessity.

Although it is sad to leave everyone from school, I feel blessed to have found people who not only get me through my days but make each day one to look forward to.

I wish my college friends nothing less than the relaxing, fun, productive, memorable, perfect summer they deserve. And they better soak it up. Because soon enough we'll be back on campus talking about our summers, wondering where the time has gone, and beginning it all again.

21 Things You Say To Your Roommate If You Two Are Practically A Married Couple

Until I made this list, I didn't realize how absurdly close my roommate and I were. #sorrynotsorry

Let's be real: you and your roommate have said these things at least one to each other.

1. "Can you turn the light off?"

2. "We probably shouldn't go out for dinner again...right?"

*Complains about not having money* *Spends $8 on Chipotle three times a week*

3. "I always pick where we go"

This is a fight you have with your roommate almost every day when you're roommate is as indecisive as mine.

4. "Do you have my keys?"

5. "Can you pick me up?"

6. "Is it hot in here?"

7. "Does this outfit look stupid?"

The answer is usually yes. No offense.

8. "Can you throw this out for me?"

9. "Can we get ice cream?"

10. "I need coffee."

This text is usually sent when you know your roomie is out running errands... errands you know are near a Starbucks.

11. "Can you tell me what happened?"

12. "Are you asleep?"

There have been times where I couldn't tell if you were asleep or dead... and I had to say this out loud to check if you were alive.

13. "Check your DM's."

*Cracks up in the middle of nowhere* *Catches a weird stare from your roomie across the room*

14. "Can you plug this in for me?"

15. "Can you pick a movie?"

Another instance where "I always pick" happens.

16. "Look at this girl's Instagram."

*Chucks phone across the room at roommate*

17. "Can you call me?"

18. "Can we meet up?"

19. "Can you help me find my phone?"

*Tries to leave the house to do something* *Loses phone* Every. Time.

20. "What should we do tonight?"

*Tries to get ready to do something fun* *Ends up staying in for another girls' night*

21. "Why isn't everyone as great as us?"

A Poem: My Mother

In honor of Mother's Day, that was on the 12th, here is a poem dedicated to my mother.


To the only person who can be my mentor, friend, and leader at the same time

To someone who would make me read my own books before bedtime

And puts everything down to make sure there is a smile on my face

To the person that I find impossible to ever replace.

Somehow you are always right even when it seems wrong

And when the worst does happen, how do you still manage to stay so strong?

I'm not only impressed but inspired by you

Knowing that somehow you'll always know me better than I do.

When I'm frustrated and annoy you, you simply try to understand me

Because you have always told me that even when you can't understand, plain acceptance is the key

You have listened to all my laughs, heard me cry, and felt my emotions like they were your own

You are the only reason I am joyous and the security I need to know that I am never alone.

To the only person who has truly taught me how to live

And watched me grow and make mistakes yet still knows how to forgive

Because that's who she is, certainly not like any other

There are many women but none like my own mother.

Happy Mother's Day!
