Last night, drunk, emotional Britta cried for what felt like ages–it was probably an hour or so–while her friends sat with her drunkingly giving her pep talks about life.
They were tears of joy, happiness, sadness, anger. I don’t remember the last time I cried that hard for that long. I certainly don’t think I’ve ever experienced so many different emotions while crying.
And my friends were with me the whole time, basically telling me how awesome I am. Naturally, their kind words made me cry even more. Because, I was drunk and emotional.

Honestly, last night was one of the best nights of my college career. Tears and all.
They tell you you’ll make your best friends for life in college. Last night was the first night that I truly understood what that meant.
I’ve always loved these people and I’m so glad I’ve gotten to know them over the last two years.
But it was really, truly, last night when I realized how much we mean to each other…how, wherever life takes us, we’ll always know where to find each other.
