To a Friend

As the weekend draws to a close, I think back on what I
accomplished over the past couple days:

  • Designed
    an informational flyer for my internship
  • Set up
    a Twitter account for my internship
  • Finished
    lots of Accounting homework
  • Read
    some interesting articles about Interpersonal Communication
  • Played
    some games with friends

While working on and finishing some of these tasks was
valuable to my college education, there was something that I learned this
weekend that didn’t have anything to do with my studies. I learned that I have
one of the sweetest roommates in the world. Because of this, I decided to write
her a little note on my blog just saying how thankful I am for her. So here we
go:

To my special roommate,

This weekend while you were gone, I
realized how much I love rooming with you. Whether it’s your positive outlook
of life, your obsession with crafts from Pinterest, or your love for the show
Say Yes To The Dress, you always have a way of making me smile. Even when times
are tough, you keep your spirits high and trust in God that everything
happening is according to His plan.

Thanks for being my roommate! I’ll
always be thankful for the time we spend together and the laughs we share!

Love, Chelsea

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.
