It feels like just yesterday my college roommate, Ashley, and I were meeting for the first time, having gummy snack throwing wars, spending our Friday nights doing donuts in empty parking lots, going through RA “try-outs,” and starting the growth process of becoming the independent women we are today. We were pretty inseparable. When she became an RA, I chose to live in a freshman dorm so we could be in the same hall. After our sophomore year, we both made the difficult decision to leave Tiffin University and transfer to Kent State. Still trying to find ourselves, we both left Kent State after one semester and finally parted ways. Ashley made the brave, selfless, and honorable decision to join the Navy and I followed my heart and became an art student at the Academy of Art University. Since then, visits have been rare, but we always seem to pick right back up where we left off when we do get the chance to see each other.
This time I went to visit her for the first time in what felt like FOREVER and I got the chance to photograph her pretty face 🙂 Here’s to hoping seeing her again won’t feel like a lifetime! xo Ali Bee
