Congratulations class of 2021! Everyone is so proud of you! You have made it so far and your life is just about to begin. It is so easy to get caught up in the new adventures of life and you should embrace every new trek that comes your way. Sometimes it can be difficult to keep in contact with the lifetime friends you made at school. Don’t feel bad! Everyone gets busy sometimes and its easy to feel disconnected. Here are my favorite ways to stay connected with my long distant friends!
- Send letters!!!!
Who doesn’t love receiving letters in the mail!!! Brighten their day and send them something special to make them smile! Even if it is a silly postcard, let them know that you are still there. Become pen pals and share all your gossip via mail!
- Set aside time to call your friends!
Scheduling a time to talk with your friends might help you not forget to talk to them. Pick a day and a time that works best, might give you something to look forward to at the end of a long day!
- Literally…. Show up!
Sometimes, it’s just as fun to plan a surprise trip to go visit your friend. Obviously, do some investigation work and see if their schedule is free. (Ask nonchalantly) Get other friends and make a mini trip out of it! Who doesn’t enjoy a good surprise!
- Leave them notes
When, and if, you visit your friends, leave them sweet notes around their house so they think of you. Give them a little something fun to find when they least expect it. This will make them think of you and text/ call you to tell you they found your note.
Alright girl boss, go life your life!! Enjoy summer and get that coin hunny. Congrats to the class of 2021! To everyone else, congrats to the end of another school year! Can’t wait to see everyone back on campus. Remember you’re loved and be nice to others!!
