A Letter to My Person //

Processed with VSCO with x1 preset

Yes girl, this one goes out to you.

Let’s face it, Urban Dictionary may not be the most reliable source for information, however, it’s always the go-to. Here’s what they had to say:

My Person
The person closest to you no matter what

She is my person. If I killed someone she is the one that would help me drag the corps across the floor. She is my person

#bestfriend #rideordie #wingman #bestie #bro

YUP, that’s you. And you’re probably wondering why I’m even writing this.

  1. I’m best with my words and writing it down makes so much sense to me.
  2. I haven’t posted a blog in a really long time so I figured this was the best way to get back into it.
  3. I LOVE YOU and I am so proud of you.

Graduation coming up has me in my feelings, per usual.

It all seems so surreal. I don’t feel like I just graduated college 6 months ago. I don’t feel like I’m supposed to be a “big girl.” I don’t feel like I have it together, even half way. How can you feel so young and so old at the same time?

There’s so many things that college prepares you for. Reading skills for life. Mathematical skills for your job (maybe). Science skills for your kids’ school projects some day. Budgeting skills for your future finances. Time management skills…for the time being. College teaches you all the tricks to jump through the hoops and college teaches you how to be the best liar in all the land.

But guess what college doesn’t teach you? HOW TO LIVE LIFE AFTER COLLEGE. 

It’s crazy. Growing up college is all we look forward to. We see it in the movies. We see the parties, study sessions, friends, sororities, fraternities, countless trips to the student buffet, sports, tailgating, dances, dressing up, looking homeless, empty wallet, etc. The list could go on and on.

But after college those are the things that become memories and real life is standing at your door ready to come in, even if you’re not ready for it. 

I’m writing this to tell you that college is hard but life is harder. You know this already.

But as the “older friend” I feel obligated to remind you that no matter how hard life starts to get, no matter how many zeros are in your bank account, no matter how dirty the house is, no matter how much laundry piles up, no matter how many times you have to cook pasta because it’s all you can afford, no matter how many times you wear the same pair of leggings, no matter how many tears fall, no matter how many arguments start and end, and no matter how many curveballs are thrown at you in this life, YOU CAN DO IT. 

You are stronger than you believe, smarter than you think, and so full of potential. You are the peanut butter to my jelly. You are the cheese to my macaroni. You are the queso to my chips, you are the apple of my eye and the light of my life. 

You are my person.

I’d love to lie to ya and tell you that life after college is easy and full of sunshine and butterflies, but you know it isn’t. You know it takes hard work and determination. You know it takes perseverance and passion.

You have all of that. I am so proud to call you my best friend and I am even more proud that you will be a COLLEGE GRADUATE IN 18 DAYS. You did it. All the hard work has finally paid off and you have one of the greatest accomplishments to call yours. 

I can’t wait to watch you kick life’s ass. Who am I kidding, I cant wait for us to kick life’s ass together. 

No matter the distance, no matter the miles, my person you’ll always be.

Love you across all the mountains.
