First, I must apologize for not writing a post in a while. I have been struggling to think of a new topic for my next blog post, and today it hit me. My friends should be the topic because through my time at college I have realized just how important it is to find a few, really good friends.
When I was younger I never had that many friends. I had people I would talk to simply because they were in my classes together, or they were in my after school activities. But that was as far as it went. I had a few really really good friends and I was fine with that.
Then, when I went to college, I had to make some new friends. And, I got so lucky with who I met really early on in college that we are still such good friends now more than two years later! Many people have friends, but they fight, or they lose contact, but, not us! We may have weeks when we don’t hang out, but that doesn’t change anything from our relationship. When we see each other again, it’s like we never stopped seeing each other, and I know in my heart that that will be how it always is for us!
Andrea Nastri: Andrea and I were suite mates my freshman year. 2015 had a lot of ups and downs for both of us, the adjustment to college was hard, but we were always there for each other and there were many nights when literally the only thing keeping me alive was Andrea’s kind words and hugs. Andrea is the most thoughtful person I know. She truly cares about everyone and she puts her heart and soul into everything she does (and trust me, she does tons). She also really wants to get to know everyone she meets, and help them to make them feel comfortable and welcome, wherever that may be! I seriously am so thankful and so lucky that we ended up by some magical force that put us into the same suite! Who knows where our paths would have led us that year if it wasn’t for that one thing we had in common! I know that Andrea will be so successful in life, and she will work tirelessly until she accomplishes whatever sets her soul on fire! I can’t wait to be cheering her on through it all!
Andrew Navaroli: Andrew and I met in the cafeteria of 150 the second day of college. It was bowling night and we were all waiting to travel to the bowling place together! Andrea and I were together with a bunch of our other suite mates, and there was Andrew! Fun Fact, Andrew wasn’t even going to go to bowling, but he ended up going and thank god he did because we have been friends ever since! Andrew is a very easy person to open up to. He has some weird way about him that just makes me want to talk to him, and invite him places. Andrew is always up for an adventure, even if it’s just a small one. He is the least judgmental person I know, and will literally listen to any story I tell him without changing his facial expression at all, no matter how wild the story is. Andrew and I are very different people, he likes to stay up until the crack of dawn, while I go to bed at 9 every night, but that has never stopped us from enjoying the day light together, and having a good time no matter where we are. If I ever need someone to talk to, or vent to, or just ask if he wants to go out for coffee while I tell him all that is bothering me, this is who I call!
And how lucky are we that all three of us get along so famously! Have we ever fought? I seriously don’t think we have. We may not have agreed with everything that we all have said or done, but we always know that we will be there for each other and will always support each other. I am so thankful that I have these people in my life, and I know deep in my heart that we will be friends for the whole rest of our lives!!
If you haven’t had a chance to get to know these people, I hope you take advantage of it! I love you Andrea and Andrew and I hope all of your dreams come true!
