An Open Letter To My College Bestie

Feb 25, 2017 04:16PM ● By Caitlyn Leary

Dear Best Friend,

We have only know each other for two years, but it honestly feels like its been a lifetime. You know every secret that I have, and you still don't judge me. I can't thank you enough for being there for me time after time whenever I just needed someone to tell me that I'm good enough or I deserve more than what I settle with. You're always encouraging me to be my best and will help me reach my goals no matter what they may be.

We have been through so much in the little amount of time that we have known each other. We have seen each other at our worst and at our best. Through break ups, family arguments, and even failing tests, we have gotten through it together. I don't think I would have made it this far without you by my side.

Without you here, I wouldn't constantly be laughing at literally nothing, I wouldn't have an ice cream buddy, and most importantly I wouldn't have someone who is as weird as me. There really is never a dull moment when we are together and that is what I love so much about our friendship. You're like a sister I never had, and I'm so grateful for that.

You pick me up when I fall down (figuratively and literally), and you have my back through anything and everything. College has been ten times better because of you, and I don't tell you this enough. Thank you for absolutely everything, you really have no idea how much it means to me. I can't wait to make a lifetime of crazy, stupid memories with you.

Love you,

Your College Best Friend
