I’m really not that materialistic like yes I would be sad and probably cry if I lost certain items, however the value is in the memories that are attached to those items. That being said I actually really care about the blanket my nana crocheted for me for my birthday 2 years ago. She asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I asked for a blanket. You see, she used to make them for people in my family all the time. Usually all the colors are a shade of one particular color like let’s say she picked blue, each stripe in the blanket would be a different variation of blue and they would alternate, not just a light colored stripe then a dark colored stripe like it would be at least 3 different colors. Anyway the stripes were in a zig zag shape which made it cool and unique. I know this sounds cliche, but she made them with love and she told me that the blanket was probably the last one she was going to ever make. She’s elderly, but in great health and idk that really touched me like she’s always told me that my brother and I are her favorite grandchildren out of the 14 of us, but that I shouldn’t tell anyone else haha she didn’t want their feelings to be hurt. Anyway I didn’t even tell her what colors I wanted, she picked them out herself and it was my 3 favorite colors to match my room. It was just so sweet of her. She forgot how to crochet because she didn’t do it for years so she went to classes so she could learn again. She is very thoughtful and it really meant a lot to me that she worked so hard on it. I would be devastated if anything were to happen to it. I’m afraid to bring it places or even use it a lot because I don’t trust other people using it like I’m scared they’ll ruin it somehow haha it’s really warm even though the yarn isn’t particularly comfortable, but I love it with all my heart because she made it for me.
Who knew you would have such an impact on my life! Looking back, I’ve only known you about 5 months…we must’ve became best friends over night because I don’t even remember how we got so close. We had a great time at the Ke$ha concert in September with Tia :) We literally spend every day with each other, eating practically every meal with each other, and occasionally going to each other’s rooms to further procrastinate the other hahaha oops. We always like to pretend it won’t happen and we’ll actually get work done, but we never do and it’s never a surprise. We have so much fun together! Just wandering around campus doing aimless activities and errands or going to get froyo after journalism :) I’ll miss doing stupid stuff together or watching weird youtube videos with you, but hopefully we’ll see each other again soon. Lucky we have technology to communicate instead of snail mail! Ugh I have separation anxiety when I don’t see you for one day haha idk how we’ve been going strong for this long…I can’t look at a whoopie pie and not think of you WAH. Right now I’m just reminiscing one of my favorite memories of our friendship, the day we took the bus to the mall! It was super fun to shop for kinda matching Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve outfits for our parties haha and of course froyo. I’m sad because I want to go back to the dining hall and have you grab napkins for me as I watch you spill your alphabet soup. We legit ate everything like all the food, none for anyone else haha I was late to every event too…I bet that’s something you’re not gonna forget about me! Anyway, I hope you have a fabulous spring semester at your new school :) If you’re happy, I’m happy! If you’re not, come back to your leadership family. We’ll welcome you with open arms and pretend you never left. I’m excited to hear about all your new friends and adventures! Don’t be afraid to break out of your shell a little, remember that you’re sweet, funny and awesome! Who wouldn’t wanna be your friend/date you?! Study hard and get amazing grades, but don’t forget to have a good time and kick ass. Don’t do anything I wouldn’t haha :) LOVE YOU MEG <3 xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
