It's Thursday So I'm Throwin it Back: Freshman Year Addition

Freshman Year Addition     

I thought I would take everyone back to my first year in college.  6 years ago, gosh I can't believe it's been that long! Anyways, 6 years ago after packing up my life in a car and not before stopping at my best friends/sisters to cry my eyes out and say goodbye, I headed to the wonderful State (The Black Hole as I refer to now) of Rhode Island to attend Johnson and Wales University.  I had not even visited the school but all I knew was I wanted to get out of my small that I lived in all my life in Upstate, NY.   I majored in Travel and Tourism Management, at that point in time I really loved it and got really good grades.  But lets be real, Freshman year was all about making new friends and going to parties and you bet that's exactly what I did.   

My freshman dorm and roomie!

  This is Molly, she was my first friend at JWU.  She lived in the same dorm as me.  She is loud, short, and crazy just like me and you would think that would make a perfect match in a friend.  For some reason after pledging in the sorority we kind of lost of friendship, which makes me really sad because she was my first friend at college.  
Me, Amy, Jenn, and Tori

  I will never forget this picture or this night, well okay I remember about half of this night and then its all kind of blurry.  This was the night that I met my soul mate best friend.  Amy and Jenn were in my major and we had a lot of the same classes together.  The girl on the right, Tori, this was my first time meeting her and she hopped in the picture and I was like yo chick, who are you and get out of the picture.  Okay I really didn't say that but I thought it.  I'm so glad that she did because she turned into my best friend for life.  We even have matching tattoos. 
  Forever Anchored. 

In the winter of 2007 I became part of the pledge class Alpha Betas with 6 other amazing girls!  After several long and amazing weeks of pledging I got to wear my Alpha Sigma Tau letters.

Freshman year was one of the best years of my life.  I couldn't have asked for a better freshman year experience.  I met my best friend and soul mate, became part of an amazing sorority, experienced a lot of "firsts", partied hard, and laughed even more.
