As I eagerly attended Freshman orientation, I was excited to meet the girls who would be living on my dorm's nursing interest group floor, as well as possibly be my roommates. I was incredibly shy as I had the same best friend since 2nd grade, and I wasn't the most outgoing when it came to meeting new people.
Both of which terrified me since I wouldn't be attending college with my best friend.
A few weeks later, our roommate assignments came in the mail and I crossed my fingers that out of the two other girls who I would be sharing a room with, at least one of them would be "normal". Don't you know as soon as I saw the names I jumped on Facebook to
Both girls were cheerleaders at their local high schools…UGH. I

As fate would have it, I found a best friend in one of my "pot luck" roommates. The other one, well we just won't talk about it. April and I have been inseparable ever since Freshman year of college. I will never forget after our first semester having to leave each other over Christmas break and we both just bawled our eyes out. To say I was lucky would be an understatement. I'm just thankful we both looked past the Facebook profile pictures and learned to love each other.
This time next week, April and I will once again be roommates and I couldn't be more excited!!!! April is coming to live with Joe and I for some time (maybe forever?) over the next few months as she pursues travel nursing here in New York. I am so excited to have a piece of home here in New York with me. And I can't wait to share the trouble that we get into…like the good 'ol days.
Oh yes we did...
See they get along just great
And now that you've had a flash into my past…get ready for some fun updates from me and my forever roommate! How's that for a #flashbackfriday
