Blaire is someone who you are lucky to have in your life. Many friendships are like that but there is something special about Blaire. She has so much amazing energy that I always say she is honestly high on life. Blaire would drop anything to be there and support the people in her life and those of us who are lucky enough to have her friendship have experienced that.
I only met Blaire this year from joining the RA team. We really connected at the end of our training week on the weekend retreat the team was on. We really bonded as a team and opened up to each other about insecurities, for me it was very real saying a lot of that stuff out loud and Blaire ended up taking some time with me to talk things out and it really changed my attitude on life and how I was going to approach the coming year.
From there it was such a natural friendship and I really love and appreciate how simple it was for us to connect and connect our lives together. It has been a challenging year for both of us and we have both been through our own struggles but the support we can get from each other is incredible. Blaire has been with me this year through some great times and some pretty low moments, but somehow through it all she always managed to make a joke or find something funny in the situation, regardless if I was in the mood to laugh or not.
Blaire is like a ray of sunshine in my life. Her love of being by the ocean and being with her friends is contagious and you are missing out if she doesn’t start talking and showing photos of her dog Buddy. He is a cutie I must agree. I also have to note that Blaire gave me the most thoughtful gift ever for Christmas this year, during the first conversation we had together I shared a lot about myself and she took a tiny detail from something she said to me and she incorporated it into my Christmas present this year and I was honestly speechless to see someone relate a gift so deeply to who I am. That has always stayed with me and forever will I adore that gift!
Blaire you are such an amazing human being on this earth, and you have so much to give to the world it is incredible. You are a huge influence to better peoples lives and support the people in your life like no other. Anyone who is lucky enough to have your friendship is blessed beyond belief and I know with absolute confidence I am very lucky to have you in my life and be able to look forward to so many amazing memories made together. Thank you for being such an amazing friend and someone who has been apart of my change to make my life the best it can be.
Next year will be quite a change as I will be moving off campus and Blaire will be staying and returning to residence as an RA for another year She just accepted the position last night! I am so proud of her goals and determination for her second year as an RA but I will always be watching out for her to make sure she is taking care of herself. Blaire has a heart of gold and I always hope that she realizes that. I love you so much Blaire and I am blessed to have you in my five <3
