When I first came to Berkeley, I wasn't so sure who would become my closest friends. Because Berkeley's undergraduate population is so vast, I didn't know where to start: my floor, my classes, or my extracurricular organizations? Needless to say, church was the farthest thing on my mind. But these girls have been an incredible support system. Although we're still growing in our friendships with one another, I can already see the start of a beautiful, beautiful five-way friendship. They've taught me a lot and it's been quite a journey - though it has only been a semester and a half. (You do a lot of growing in college!) Some of them experienced my traumatic hair experience with me. Every day, they listened to me complain about the short length, but simultaneously, reassured me that it looked good. My heart melts at the things they do for me and the things we plan to do in the future.
But for now, I'm just looking forward to every upcoming Sunday afternoon.
