With everything happening lately, I can honestly say I would not have gotten through it without several people.
Thank you to my amazing parents. Even though I whine and cry and tell you “I’m hanging up now I don’t want to talk about it” you still love and support me just the same. And the money for starbucks and Ben & Jerrys didn’t hurt either. Even when I beg that you don’t give me advice and just listen to me cry for 20 minutes, you do, and you it well. I am beyond guilty of being the standard college kid (or just a kid in general) and I think that y’all can never relate to anything I’m going through. Well, evidently, you guys can. So thank you, for everything. Love y’all bunches.
Thank you to my friends from home. Jess, your ability to make me laugh throughout this by throwing in the 52 jokes is a godsend, and I appreciate you being there more than you know. Ian, for checking in on me every few hours so I didn’t feel totally alone, thank you a million and one. Cassidy, for just talking to me and just being you, and reminiscing on all the fun times on greenwich road and the October snowstorm, I owe you. To every single one of you who tried to pick me up, you succeeded. I love you all and thank you.
To all my friends down here in good ole SC. My amazing Big, Melissa, talking me down from the ledge and just being honest with me (which I what I needed at that point), and bagel breakfasts, you’re the best. Toniann, I LOVE YOU NUGGET. You literally dropped everything to drive to my apartment and watch my Kim Kardashian face come to be, and share advice, make me laugh, and then take a shiv trip, I owe you, BIG TIME. Darby, even if I don’t see you as much as I’d like your unconditional support during this time has helped me so much. I’m glad that someone can relate to me and help me through all this. And of course, all of my sorority sisters. Times like these I am beyond glad to have 320+ girls who care for me like a real sister. Not that I’m not always glad but… ya know. Thank you all, so so much.
And now, to Hailey. Specifically. You posting my number all around ECU and social media and all of the fabulous random strangers who sent me sweet messages, funny pictures, verses from the bible, and everything inbetween have made such a difference. I am so glad to have found a friend in you, I cannot put into words how thankful I am. From the phone number fiasco, to texting you until late night because I’m just so… BLAH….you’ve been there for it all. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Tough times don’t last, but tough people do. And tough people, usually have a tough support system behind them the whole way.
So again, thank you to everyone. I am so grateful to have all of you in my life.
So if you’re reading this, and someone has helped you recently, go thank them. Those little gestures go a long way.
