STEPPING OUT OF FRESHMAN YEAR
Last week, I finished up my finals and moved out of my tiny, colorful dorm room. I am so happy to be home for the summer- with plans of working and resting, catching up with old friends and reorganizing my life a bit, but I am so so SO grateful for the year I’ve had. I couldn’t have wished for anything different.
My roommate and I both last minute (and by last minute I mean March-ish of senior year) did not have a roommate. A mutual friend knew both of our predicaments and set us up, and I couldn’t be more thankful she did. My roommate Halle has become my best friend and made our little room a home! :’) From her crazy art-major projects, our pookie friends, daily (and sometimes multiple times a day) coffee trips, penny board tricks, life advice, emotional music, and plus our all things colorful and Pinterest-inspo decorated room- we’ve shared the best of memories that make me so sappy and happy haha. Thankful we will be living just across the street from each other next year!
Rushing Tri Delta in August was one of my greatest blessings. I was a nervous wreck when it came to thoughts about recruitment and rush, as I don’t have any legacies or ties anywhere, and often thought back and forth whether I would rush when it came to college. I am so glad I did. Looking back, I am so grateful for the peaceful feeling I got from knowing everything happens for a reason. This has been shown to me time and time again in life, and going through what was suppose to be an emotional rollercoaster of a week, I found peace in knowing I would belong where I was suppose to be. I have found some of the bestest friends I’ve clicked with from day one! And, not only have a found the best of friends I could talk to about anything, I’m so, so excited for the girls I’m not close with yet. With Tri Delta, I feel like the opportunities are endless when it comes to friendship as you never know when or how you’ll end up so close to the girl you only knew her name and Instagram the other day, it just happens. Thankful x a mili for my #sisters :)!
Both friends new and old have been my little family this year, helping me grow and sharing the best of memories this year. I’ve never felt so loved by my friends before this year and I cannot wait to be back. Some of the hardest lessons I’ve undergone this year but also some of the most joyous times were had. FRESHMAN YR 4EVER :’)
