With all the stress that college brings, it's hard to feel perfectly content and well, happy.
I feel as in the past few weeks of my last year (or you know, only 6 months) of college I've been the happiest that I have been throughout this entire college experience. That's not to say that I haven't been happy in other years or that I've been miserable this entire time I've been here. I have been happy. However, this is the first time where I feel truly good, you know?
In the past few weeks, I've gained a solid group of friends. I've always been the kind of person to have a few quality friends here and there. It's definitely not about quantity over quality for me. It's all about the quality of friends. However, all these friends that I've gained over the course of college have been scattered. This quarter, in the past couple of weeks, I've gained that group of girl friends a person always dreams about. I've known a few of these girls for longer than this, however, now we are all connecting.
This post sounds so cheesy - and I am not the biggest fan of "cheesiness." But, it's just true. I can be weird with these girls. I trust them. I laugh so much around them. I love them all so much.
I don't know if we'll be friends for life. However, I know that in this moment, I don't think this senior year would be the same without them.
This quarter has been producing a lot of stress for me. I'm taking two senior-focused classes and I'm writing for a publication. It's a lot of work and stressful as h*ll.
But because of these girls and the time we have spent together, senior year doesn't seem so heavy and stressful.
I'm happy and I'm thankful.
