you’ve got a friend in me.

In college, I have found some remarkable people who I call my best friends. I have also met a bunch of people who are just okay suck. I have had roommates that cuddled with me and held me while I cried myself to sleep, and I have had roommates that made me want to bang my head off walls. Your college experience will be what you make it, so be nice to the people who surround you and they will do the same.

Janine and I before my 21st Birthday party!

Janine (right) and I have known each other since my freshman year here at school. It wasn’t until this past summer that we became the best of friends. We literally do everything together and love each other (maybe too much!) to pieces. I can’t imagine my life without such a supportive, funny, and caring friend. I know that the relationships that I have made and are yet to make in college will stick with me for the rest of my life!

Amber fun

Amber (left) and I were placed together by chance our freshman year of College. Even though we drive each other crazy, I wouldn’t trade her for a million dollars. She knows more about me than I know about myself and we have seen more of each other than we have ever needed to. Amber is a life-long friend that I know will never let me down. Amber is someone I know I can run to even if we haven’t talked in a while.

roommates

Paige, Bridget, Catherine, and I during our Monday Night roommie time

My roommates from this past year are so fun to be around. Paige, Bridget, and Catherine (Right) are always down to have a good time and talk if I need a helping hand. We share everything and respect each others belongings. We are able to talk to each other until we fall asleep and share secrets that we know will never leave our room. We have our nights that are solely for just us where we watch out TV shows and I cook dinner.

Timmy

This picture sums up the relationship that Timmy and I have

Timmy (left) was one of my first friends at Saint Xavier. Amber and I lived just a few doors down from him and we would hang out until the early light of the morning. There wasn’t a get- together or event on campus that you didn’t see us three at together. Sometimes I wish that my freshman year of college lasted forever! I know that all of my best friends here at Saint Xavier have seen the best and the worst of me. I cannot express the impact that these individuals have had on me. I have learned so much from each one of them and I believe that my friends are a lot of what makes me who I am today! Since they are still around through my mood swings and egotistical stories, I know that these friends really love me for me, and that is the best thing that I could have asked for in my college experience.
