No more teary goodbyes

Originally appeared on

There were lots of teary goodbyes, hugs, and promises to call and keep in touch.

It was the end of my freshman year of college, and my friends and I were parting ways for the summer. I loved college and had such a blast living on campus with all my newly made friends. We went to rock concerts, movies, coffee shops, and had study parties. Three months apart from them for summer break seemed like eternity. I’d also made a couple of older friends who were graduating. Those goodbyes were even more difficult. I didn’t know when or if I would ever see them again. It seemed awful that I could come to love these people so much and then be separated from them.

We'd love to hear from you!
