Growin' & Glowin'
At this point in time, there is not way I can fully process the fact that we have made it TWO years living together and are still best friends. Actually, I can't even believe we're best friends.
Where do I freaking start???
In September of 2016, we both started a new journey as transfers at Southeastern University. We got selected randomly as roommates. Honestly, when you added me on facebook before move in day, I couldn't get a read on who you were. But I honestly didn't even want to. See, I had already made up my mind that I wasn't going to be friends with any of my roommates. And then we moved into an 8 man with 4 of us per room.
On move in day we set up our beds across from each other not knowing what the next two years..heck...semester was going to hold. But that didn't matter because you didn't even sleep in the room that night LOL.
You moved in with your best friend, Paola, as one of our roommates. I figured you two wouldn't talk to me or the other girls in our suite. But we ended up all going out to lunch and school events alll the time our first year. And it was pretty great.
Honestly, we've cried a lot. Okay. Mainly I've cried a lot. You shut down a lot. But we made it a point that this past school year was going to be one where we would grow through it all and freaking G L O W.
I know we talk a lot about our faults and the parts of our personality types that could use work. However, don't forget that there are so so many positives. You're a peacemaker. A uniter. A fighter. You is SO STRONG GIRL.
OH AND REMEMBER THAT TIME WE WROTE AND PRODUCED A SONG TOGETHER?! Freaking WHAT?!
Thanks for throwing out the garbage and doing random stuff with me and encouraging me. There's so many beautiful things about you that I absolutely love, but don't have the time or emotional capacity to even begin describing.
Thank you for being you. Thank you for your friendship. Thank you for your sisterhood.
And for letting me borrow clothes and giving me your Zara turtle neck :)
And just so you never ever ever forget:
