I'll love you forever, like you for always...

I can't remember how many times I heard the sentence, "The people you meet in college are the people who will be your friends for life."

Tell that to a shy, quiet girl who lived at home through college. Don't get me wrong, I did make a lot of friends in college, and I'm certain that if I needed any one of them, I could ask and they would be here for me in a heart beat. The thing is, though, I see on facebook how close some of them are, and I know, I just didn't make those bonds in college.

No. The friends I have made in the past five years are so are the friends that will be my friends for life. The ones here are people who truly get me down to the core. They love me for my geekiness and accept my quirky ways. I love them for that.

One thing, that I really love (in case you couldn't tell) is the internet. The internet re-connected me with a friend from grade school who has become one of my very best friends. It also gave me a space in the world to discover how much I like to write and am pretty good at it.

I never expected to meet people through my writing. People who matter. People who have completely touched and changed my life. I'm quite certain that without every single one of you have helped to shape and mold me through my journey. Some of you have shown me things about myself that I didn't know existed. Sometimes, people I least expect to make my day do.

Never underestimate the power you have to influence someone. So, when you guys tell me I'm awesome, please know that it's partly because of you.

Yes. Part of the reason I am so awesome is because of you awesome, beautiful, lovely, amazing people. And for that I am so very thankful.

You quoted my favorite children's book. Was that intentional?
You really are awesome. Thank you for being you.

"The people you meet in college are the people who will be your friends for life." - That must not count for us community college folks because I honestly can't remember the names of any of the people I had all my classes with. And I have no desire to reconnect with people from high school or grade school. I guess I'm sort of a loner and I don't have many true friends. Thanks for being one of them.

I haven't been in contact with most people from college in a long time. I have met a lot of people in the last 5 years through blogging or just in general and I am happy to have them in my life.

I may only be in my second year of college but none of the people I have met in college will be my friends a year from now. Although I do have one special friend from grade school. You are an amazing person! I look forward to hearing from you every time I log in!

Yeah, that wasn't true for me since I didn't really go to college in the traditional sense.

You're pretty good at this complimenting yourself thing. Best assignment ever.

About Me

My photo
I'm a walking contradiction. While I love to draw, paint and read, I also love all things gadgets, science and even science fiction (I know). My animals (two dogs and two birds) are my heart, and if I could figure out how to legally own a giraffe, I would. That all said, I have my BS in Mathematics. :o)
