Finding Your Place
When I came to Concordia, I was excited to find a solid group of friends. In high school, my friends were incredibly close and we spent every weekend and holiday break together. But as my freshmen year progressed, I began to realize that finding a group of friends wasn’t all that easy. Yes, I had friends. But they were random and I hung out with different people every weekend (with the exception of my roommate Maddie). When my friend Courtney approached me sophomore year about living with her and her roommate Melody, I was hesitant because I felt I didn’t know either of them well. But once Maddie and I agreed on it and signed the lease of our house, we started to get to know each other better.
This summer has been fun primarily because I feel like I have a group of friends. Every Wednesday without fail, my friends and I hop on our bikes to cruise to Free-Pie-Wednesday at the Village Inn. Afterwards, we always go to Luke’s house to jam out on his random musical instruments and play Dance Central.
I’m not sure that this summer group of friends will stick in the school year, but I’m really hoping it does. Every person wants to feel like they belong and I feel like with these guys, I do.
