And you find a friend like this one:
Kristi gave that to me for my 19th birthday. 5 years ago, I met this girl. We've lived under the same roof for almost 4 of those years.
I could not even begin to explain the things that we've gone through together. Between the two of us, we had quite the introduction to the real world during our 4 years of college.
But when you go through all of the things that we went through together, you end up forming a pretty solid friendship.
And besides all of the tough stuff that we experienced, you know what else we did together?
Had the time of our lives.
And yes, the giant photo dump was entirely necessary.
Because this girl is officially leaving Santa Barbara today. And that means that this could very well be the last night that we ever spend as roommates.
So she better know that these past 5 years have been amazing because of her. And that I wouldn't be the person that I am without knowing her.
And even though I have a life here in Santa Barbara, and have met so many amazing people in the last year,
It won't be the same without her.
Just know that, k?
I love you, Kristi. Go raise some hell in Calabasas.
