To all my roommates I had over the 4years: Thanks so much for making my "home life" fun. I know we all disagree a little, but I'm glad I chose each one of you to share that experience with.
Shanna: I'm glad I got to know you over the years. Your the type of person that is worth knowing. I have had a lot of fun with your company. We still need to go scuba diving together.. to bad I will be land locked!!!
Ac-Boo Boo: I'm sorry that Nick Cannon is taken... I really wanted to be a bridesmaids in that wedding! I'm happy you came to USI and stayed..
Sara: I can't believe that you came back to USI and I am the one leaving!!! Have a great year and I hope to see u before my 3 years is up!
Nicole: You were my first friend at USI, and I'm glad that we stayed that way. Your an awesome person, and I hope the club gets more social this year with u a social chair!!
Lyndsee: I hope your keeping your blog up to date.. I need to know everything about you!!! I'm soo estatic that you moved to INDIANA!! you made my last few months of work worth it... When I go back to visit USI, I will always remember all the places we ate lunch!
WORK: I'm really happy that I worked in the Financial Aid office during my time in school. It gave me a better sense of this whole money thing.. I'm still waiting on the government to re-imburst my education for putting my time in!! lol... You all were wonderful to work with and it was really hard to leave. It may have been stressful, but I was very comfortable in doing what I was doing(just hoping I was doing it right). Sallie, Brittany and Jesse you better keep up the work!! Don't make me send u an e-mail from Africa!!!
To everyone else: thanks again for everything.. even if we didn't stay friends there was a reason why we became friends in the first place, and our paths just weren't meant to stay together!
