A Guide to Long Distance Friendship

As the school year approaches, it's likely that many of your friends will move to a different college than you, and both your and your friends' lives will start to look drastically different. The dreaded long distance friendship has caused many a once 'best friends for life's to drift away, with both content to carry on without the other. If reading that causes a face to flash in your mind and a stubborn defiance to take root, declaring, "No. Never. Not our friendship," then this is the blog for you. Here are some things to consider when you and your best friend have to go long distance.

As a twenty-one years old, I could learn a lot from my kindergartener self. As a kindergartener, I grasped the fact that sometimes I had to share my favorite toy with my friend because my friend was worth that. Somewhere along the way between my five year old counterpart and the junior in college, the concept of sacrificing for my friends became more difficult. Most of the time I know exactly how to be a good friend, but ultimately, being someone's friend proves inconvenient.

Spring break is here for Mississippi College, and I, for one, am incredibly excited. The demands of school, work, relationships, and extracurriculars have completely worn me out. On most days, I feel like I need twenty-four more hours in each day.

I have had the pleasure of experience that particular benefit during all four of  my college years. I have survived the dark basement halls surrounding Chrestman 31. My friends and I reigned high in the Pound (aka 3rd floor) of Ratliff. We kept it classy junior year in New Men's, and then finally, I arrived. I gathered the squad, and we set out for University Place, or as they are known to students on campus, the Pods.

Time is tricky. Somehow tasks that were only to take one hour take four, and before you know it, the clock strikes midnight. I often feel as if time just slips through my fingers.

Hello friends, it's your favorite graduating senior, Elizabeth, and I'd be lying if I said I'm excited about writing this blog.  I started working in the Tower during the fall of 2012 as a caller, and then for the past two years I've gotten to work on the blog! I've genuinely loved this job and have made some priceless memories with co-workers that have become my best friends.
