To my Best friends at my home away from home -
When I first started college, I had no idea just how much you would end up meaning to me. Whether you were a roommate or someone I met in class, or just by chance at a random event or a party, you have become someone very important to me and my life. You are always there for me when I need you. You accept the random bits of hysteria when the semester is just too much to take. And I can't imagine my life before I met you. You've added so much to my life in the short amount of time that I have known you.
I know I can always count on you to procrastinate with me. You remind me to eat and I can always count on you to have someone to eat with. You help me to meet new people and to get me out of my comfort zone. When one of us accomplishes something school related, we know that we can count on each other to celebrate our victories. I know that when I'm struggling, you know how to distract me just long enough to regain sanity to start again.You motivate me to do homework and to actually stay on the school grind. You're like the parent here to motivate me when I suck at motivating myself. I know I can count on you to always be down for anything, whether that be wine night, random adventures, or hours in the library (although we never last that long.)
I'm grateful for what you have brought to my life. You make me laugh like no other. You've taught me how to be more open minded. You've shown me how to let myself take a step out of my comfort zone. You push me because you know I need to be pushed. You are constantly teaching me new things and telling me about things within your major that I wouldn't have ever known without you. You listen to me cry about boys and even ration with my boy craziness. Still, you're there to stop me from looking like a fool in front of a cute boy at a party, and sometimes, you look like a fool right along with me. I'm so glad for that.
These years in college are supposed to be the years we remember for the rest of our lives. While that doesn't always feel like it should be true, I know I won't forget these four years I have spent with you. We came from different backgrounds and locations, and our friendship is something that I cherish above anything else. You are my favorite party pal, my favorite sleepover partner, my cherished shoulder to cry on, and I couldn't imagine college without you. I felt so lost here and you have made this place feel like home. You make it easier to return after the breaks spent away. I love that I met you.
Thank you for becoming my forever friend.
