Fall 2013: Kate and I met our freshman year of college in an English class and we became fast friends. She is now one of my closest friends and another one of my roommates this year. The night we took this photo we ended up getting dressed up for no reason and running through sprinklers in a giant park in the city. It is friends like Kate who make me feel like I can be utterly silly and myself without hesitation. Friends like Kate are the friends that are able to bring out the best, child-like spirit in me. She is currently studying abroad in Brazil and I miss her like crazy!
