To my best friends,  

It’s hard to begin a goodbye note when it feels like an eternity of living together. In four years, we have seen each other at our very best and certainly at our very worst. How could I possibly tell you about all the emotions I’m feeling right now, or all the memories that have been crowding my mind. To say I will miss you is an understatement.  

These are just a few things, from an endless list, that I will miss about you. I’ll miss talking about our days at the end of the night as we share funny, sad, and even embarrassing stories. I’ll miss seeing the same FedEx driver every day, knowing there will be a group haul and fashion show to attend. I’ll miss the chaos in our house before going out to Dirty Dogs or the Mule. I’ll miss getting ready in one room and dancing like fools before trying to finesse the Uber driver by sneaking in extra bodies (the student budget was rough!). Most importantly, I will miss the way we took care of each other, looked out for each other, and loved each other, despite our dumb arguments and frustrations. No matter what, we always stuck together!  

You have made our student house a home away from home. I wish I cherished more of our  movie nights, family dinners, group therapy sessions, and spontaneous dance parties that gave us the love and comfort that I never knew could exist between friends. I know we have been struggling to say our goodbyes and move apart, but I am so excited to cheer you on your next adventure.  

Thank you for making my university experience everything I wanted it to be and more. It was a pleasure to grow, learn, and make memories with you. I am truly lucky to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. See you soon! 

Much love,  

Roomie xoxo
