On my second day at University I was sitting by myself waiting to go into lectures
and I noticed an extremely well presented lady sitting next to me.
She was perfectly made up and looked like she knew what she was doing.
I decided she must be a business woman doing a degree on the side
she looked like she had it all together.
I noticed she was watching the kids milling around,
so I leaned over and said to her, "doesn't it make you feel old?"
and she turned around and started chatting.
As it turns out, Michelle didn't have it all together
and was just as terrified as me.
Making friends with her and Nicola on that first week
was the best thing that could have happened to Meg and I.
We have had so much fun together,
and been able to love and support each other as we find our feet at Uni.
On Saturday when I was not aceing my exam,
I kept hearing Michelle's voice in my head explaining the topic
from when we were studying together.
It's so awesome to have someone on your side.
It's awesome to have Michelle as a friend.
Imagine if I had just looked at her "got it all together" appearance
and been too intimidated to speak to her?
I would have missed out on so much.
Luckily I got over myself.
