Robert and I first met in British Literature during the first semester. He seemed a bit of a slacker and perhaps one that just needed a reality check to get his priorities in line. However, even though he was not always the best student, he still had a great sense of humor. I first got to know Robert when he taught me how to throw a football in the gym. He is also the one who has introduced me to most of the upperclassmen on campus. Robert grew up in Warrensburg, Missouri. He lived with his two parents and two sisters and brother. Robert laughs as he tells me, "Between the four of us, there was never a dull moment." Robert really looks up to his dad, which one can easily tell by looking at his future plans. Robert graduates this year and is planning on joining the military just like his dad did. He is hoping on being stationed in Kansas City, Missouri where he will work as a psychologist. Robert may not always be the best student in the classroom; however, he really is a good person with a bright future ahead. He realizes that at times he lived life in the fast lane, and he wishes that he would have slowed down every once in awhile. Although, he also believes that you have one life to live, and so you better live it. But by saying this, he still knows that living life, also means taking a step back to figure your life out.

Jacey is a cute and quirky girl that everyone should try to get to know. She's not one of those type of girls that tells you want you want to hear-she is going to flat out say what you need to hear. Whether it involves boys, school, or sports Jacey is the one I go to for advice. Jacey loves to wear sweat pants with her hair up, but when it is time to get dressed up: she will wear the trendiest outfit on campus. Someone she looks up to is Beyonce. I laugh when she tells me this, and she says, "No! Not just because of her curves, I mean she's got talent too! She's successful." No matter what Jacey ends up doing in life, she will be successful, there is no doubt about it. Jacey lives a few suites away from me, so I can see her porch when I leave my room. Seven out of ten times, she is sitting in her favorite chair with her homework on her lap. She constantly studies in order to maintain the 4.0 she is striving to have. Jacey and I became so close this year that we have actually decided to live together next semester. We went from being total strangers to best friends in a time span of about 7 months. She is one of those friends in life, that pushes you to be your very best. She lives her life by her favorite quote:
Good, Better, Best
Never let it rest
Until your good is better
And your better is your best.
She expects it from herself to follow this quote, but she also expects it from those around her as well.
I feel like meeting new people is all about stepping out of one's comfort zone. It involves trying new things, and making new experiences. It incorporates the idea of taking chances, and living life to the fullest. Doing this can be an adrenaline rush, and it can make a person's life happier!
