Happy Sunday!!! Today I figured it was about time I wrote another weekly gratitude. There are so many things I am grateful for and have learned to appreciate even more since coming back to school (already a month ago!! What!!). For example, MY AMAZING FRIENDS! I was so excited to go to college last year but even more nervous if I would find a good solid group of friends. Not going to lie, my friends at home set the bar pretty high so I was hesitant to see what happened. Now, all living in the same building we see a lot of each other, I mean a lot. We do pretty much everything together which can be exhausting but also the best thing ever. I didn’t even realize how much I would miss them when I left for summer break earlier this year. I almost cried I was so sad to say goodbye to their little faces. They had become my family at my home away from home and what was I going to do without them? Even more crazily, summer FLEW by just like I knew it would and soon enough we were right back at Loyola. This first month back it feels like I have spent more time with them than I did all last year. We have laughed, we have cried and we have the best time together. Someone is always willing to help you pick out an outfit or borrow a pair of shoes. The support is incomparable. Yesterday was my incredible roomie, Julia’s birthday. We had a ton of festivities planned as well as some secret surprises she didn’t know about. It was so much fun seeing everyone come together to make this birthday special for her. Everyone has such a kind heart and wants the best for everyone, especially our sweet Julia. So basically what I’m trying to say is I’m just so happy and lucky to have found such an amazing friend group that has stuck with me for two whole years now and hopefully a long long time from now. Find yourself a gang like these fools pictured below. Really don’t know what I’d do without them.
