  • Seeing all my friends and hanging out with them.
  • Me and my friend went to visit our third friend at his new job so we did the reasonable thing, being of course to stare at him the entire time we were eating our food. His boss asked him if we were stalking him. My friends wanted Menchie’s but when we got there, they were surprised that it was closed (btw this happened in the middle of Winter at 11am).

  • A favorite memory is when my friends and I were all link leaders in junior year so we had a sleepover the night before link day and then drove together.
