Come back to Texas

by Sarah Luna

I’ve had a wonderful two days back in Texas. I visited Drew and his family and am now with Lara. This evening, I saw five of my closest friends. We’ve all survived.

It’s been so different living life without their daily presence. I’ve missed them all so much. I keep having to remind myself that I can’t expect the same depth of friendship at Cornell overnight. These relationships take years to develop, and I’ve only been there a few months.

I’m so grateful for my A&M friends.  The past few hours have been so full of joy.

I also have great hope for my Cornell friendships, too. I look forward to what they will develop into over the next four (five, six?) years.

I’m so glad I came back to Texas.
