GRACE AND I MET our freshman year of high school. We were textbook freshmen - fourteen, scared, excited... we had absolutely no idea what the next couple of years held. We found solace in each others' friendship. I've shared countless memories with Grace. From crying on each others' shoulders to sneaking out of our parents' houses to crying laughing in cars at 4 AM, we just get each other.
Coming home from college can be weird. You're thrown into this world that used to be so familiar to you because it was all you knew your whole life, even though it's not technically your home anymore. Friends like Grace bring it all back - the laughter, the youth, the comfort and the warmth.
