When I first met you, I thought you were someone from my high school. One of those ballroom dancer girls. But you were not that girl, you were so much cooler!
We became roommates and I still recall the smell of our room, your smell. It was kind of a musky fall scent, and I will never forget it. When I think of that room I think of waking up in the middle of the night with those red and black elder bugs crawling on me.
We broke up with our beloved boyfriends and listened to break-up songs together on our front porch. That was our crucial bonding moment as friends. I looked up to your for being so strong and so independent. You are a smart girl and I wanted to be like you. (still do, girl--you are going to change the world!)
It's been a year now and you are going away. We talked on google chat and I sometimes look at our conversations and they make me laugh. I will miss your face and your scrunched-up frusterated/sillybilly look that you make sometimes haha
Have fun in england! Love you!
