One is Silver and the Other's Gold
Without friends the world would be a lonely and quite place. Friendship is something that I value and am so thankful for! I have all different kinds of friends; my family, my best friends, my boyfriend, my classmates, and even my pets. Each friend is important to me and special for their own reasons. Whether I need a buddy to laugh with or a shoulder to lean on, I know I can count on my friends.
You can really lean a lot from your friends which is why I think that it is important to have a variety of friends because it helps us grow as individuals. We are lucky to attend such a diverse campus, so I really encourage everyone to make new friends with other Cal students. If you always sit alone in a big lecture hall, start a conversation with the person sitting next to you (not during lecture of course). I always find this a good way to meet new and interesting people.
Having good friends you know you can count on is so re-assuring and important in life. I know I can always depend on my best friend to say exactly what I need to hear, my boyfriend to give me endless support, and my family and pets to love me unconditionally. For all these reasons and so many more I know my life would be dramatically different without these people in it. I know we can all get caught up in our studies, but try not to forget about the big picture, it is just as important to make time for your friends as it is for school work. Plus having good friends who make you happy and enrich your life makes everything else that’s not so fun (i.e. studying for midterms) all worthwhile! :)
P.S. If you’re looking for a great way to make new friends you should check out how to become a PAL. Meeting new people is just one of the many perks being a PAL has!
