You get many things coming out of University: an education, a love for fast food and mainly a chunk of debt. But with Galen-tines day just around the corner (yes, a whole day to celebrate your friends) we need to appreciate the amazing friendships we make along the way.
- You’ve seen each other at your best…
From acing assignments which you’ve slaved over together to spending all your student loans on dresses which make you look 10/10, you’ll be there for each other every step of the way to that big graduation.
- And your worst
They’ve probably held your hair back as you ran to the toilet after one too many Jagerbombs, and saw you in a sea of leftover Dominoes boxes and greasy hair as you fight your way through revision. But that’s okay, because they’re equally as minging.
- Surviving the hangovers (and the lectures)
Ah yes, where there’s a university, there’s always an abundance of bars and clubs close by for you to “just have a few” because you’ve a 9AM lecture in the morning. Fast forward a few hours, you and your friends are knee-deep in shots and declaring your love for each other.
- You’ve “grown up” together
University is a time of huge changes, from moving away from home to making new friends, it’s the time to discover who you really are. The windy path from teenager to mini-adult involves a lot of bills and responsibilities and c’mon, what bond is stronger than the joint crying over that?
- They never judge you for your procrastination
Mainly because they are too. Who knew re-watching an entire One Tree Hill boxset was more valuable than writing that essay?
- You talk about the real things
And I don’t just mean boys and makeup. I mean your five year plan, planning the dream job and aspirations, questioning how the hell you’ll ever afford your own mortgage(?!). The future is scary, but you’ll always be there cheering each other on.
- They know far too much
You’ve let them in all on all the juicy details of your life so you couldn’t possibly let them go. And let’s be honest, you’ve already picked out your bridesmaid dresses.
How will you be celebrating Galen-tines day?
