I'm completely blessed to be living with five amazing girls right now.
This is Jae.
Kind, passionate, and a kindred spirit when it comes to organization and cleanliness. We've gotten to share life together over the past year or so, and I'll miss seeing her face on a daily basis.
This is Nicole.
A brilliant thinker with an infectious laugh. I've never met anyone who walks into a room and asks a random question like "are you talking about hair cuts?" as much as this girl does. I've also never met anyone who watches and laughs out loud to TV alone as much as she does. And I'm going to miss all of it.
This is Hannah.
I've learned this semester that whenever I have a problem, Hannah's the one to talk to. She's great at providing a voice of reason and encouragement, and although we really just got to know one another this year, I'm going to miss her terribly.
This is Lacy.
I'm not sure I can even find words to describe what this one means to me. I had a friend crush on her during our first two years at Gordon, and was thrilled when we both got into the Elijah Project. Little did I know what a sweet, compassionate, beautiful spirit this girl has.
This is Emily.
Emily is the one that puts up with living with me, and boy am I going to miss her SO much. We lived together last year and it was great, but this year, our friendship just blossomed to a whole new level. She is one of the most generous, kind-hearted, and joyful people that I know, and my life has been richly blessed to know her in the way that living with someone allows for.
This is Christine.
Christine doesn't live with me (anymore), but she is still one of my closest friends at Gordon (and also probably my most cuddly). I love this girl's heart for service and also her laid-back nature. She is a sweet, funny, honest individual and I'm going to miss having her nuzzle her way into a hug every time she sees me.
This is Cassie.
Cassie might just be my other half. Its always so refreshing to find people who are like-minded, and if there is anyone on this campus who fits that bill for me, its Cas. We bonded over making faces and eyes at each other during Elijah Project discussions gone awry, and I love her for many things, not the least of which is the intentionality with which she approaches her relationships. I know that she'll be the one to keep me updated on all the goings-on up north.
So, while these are not the only friends at Gordon that I'll miss, they are some of the ones I'll miss the most. These women bring joy to my heart and a smile to my face. I love each one and will be looking forward to visiting them and hearing about all the wonderful things they're doing.
Watch out for them, they're going to change the world.
Ok, now I'm really going to go cry a bucket of tears.
Also, I'm now officially done with college.
