Syndi!! Congratulations on graduating! I don't even know where to start or where to end, so I'll keep it short. I'm so glad to have met you, you're an amazing friend and one of the most free-spirited, passionate people I know. Enjoy New York, and all the best with everything! This is definitely not good bye!
Dear Syndi or Synod as my autocorrect would say,
If there is one thing that I am grateful for about joining ZTA, is the fact that I got to meet amazing people like you. I just wanted to let you know that you are an awesome, fun, gorgeous, independent, fierce, kind, and strong womxn. Your light draws so many people in, and I want you to promise me that you never let it die out. I have shared so many beautiful memories with you, from being in Europe together, to Coachella (FUCK DRAKE), I will never forget the laughs that we have shared - Or the the way you and Naomi make fun of my laugh LMAO.I’m so proud of you for graduating!!! You made it at one of the top Universities & they can’t tell you nothing!!! (Cue Kanye). I truly wish you the best in your future endeavors in New York. New York is the place where dreams come true and I can’t wait for your dreams to be realized. Adrian better take good care of you otherwise imma visit and kick some ass (LMAO jk Adrian…) I will definitely have to visit you though, so we can be hip with our round sunglasses in NY together. I have been avoiding coming to terms with the fact that you are graduating until now as I write this blogpost, and all of a sudden I’m tearing up and ruining my make-up lol. I really do cherish our friendship and I am proud to call you one of my best friends.
Love you from the bottom of my heart,
You are one of the funniest most memorable people I have ever met in college. I'm sad that we didn't hang out more towards the end but let's keep in touch when you move out to the big city :3 ALSO we never got to go clubbing!! Maybe I can visit you in the city and you can show me around and we can go clubbing :DDD
Love you, Angela
Oh what's good, boo boo. haha! Syndi,
You are an exceptional and amazing individual.
Capable of anything and doing anything to get it.
You have always striven to be true to yourself regardless of the atmosphere and that's incredibly rare and it inspires me to this day.
Keep that vibe because it will always bring good times.
Like standing through the sunroof of my car in the redwoods screaming "it's soooooo beautiful!"
To day drinking (morning drinking actually) in between classes.
To free styling in Cesar Chavez at 2 am.
Good times always come to good people.
It's a blessing to have met you, to know you, and to be your friend.
Congrats on graduating and making it this far and I'm sure you'll achieve far more and greater things.
First of all can I just say you are one of the FEW and I mean F E W blessings that CAL has ever given me? I still remember meeting you at the SLC while we were both (unknowingly) working on the same essay for Jackson’s class, ooooh Jackson. Anywayssss lol, I am so proud of you for this GREAT accomplishment BUT needless to say forever sad that you are leaving me for the east coast…sigh. I learned to love you—as if it was hard, and I look at you like the older sister I never had that teaches me the good, the bad, the ugly, and the sexy wink emoticon haha You made class and my experience so much more worth it, you shining star and ray of sun!! I will always admire your strength, confidence, kindness, happiness, and intelligence. You have taught me so much in only two years DAMN it has been 2 yrs already and I still don’t want you to leave me ☹ But I know that you will be doing BIGGER and BETTER things and I will be happy for you as long as you are. Thank you for listening to all of my rants and chisme, thank you staying woke, thank you for your sisterhood and thank you for being unapologetically YOU. Never change that. I will not embark onto next year the same because a small piece of my heart is leaving me, but just know that some people come to your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime and you are DEFINITELY in mine for a lifetime heart emoticon Never change, continue being that sparkle that makes everyone’s day better—even at an 8am lecture….lol I am beyond honored and blessed to have you in my life. Now as Yeezus would have it, “Keep your nose out the sky, keep your heart to god, and keep your face to the raising sun.”- West.
Te amo por siempre,
P.S. If I was rich I would bring Yeezus to your graduation wink emoticon Just sayn’
I can not believe your time has come to depart the Berkland!
However I am super happy that the time has come for you to move on to better and bigger things aka you're getting old! lol I hope you enjoyed your time here but if you didn't, fak it cuz NY awaits you! Thank you for your lovely presence in this physical world. In all honesty tho, your birth did this world a favor bringing laughter and joy into people's lives. You are such an amazing human being and will forever remember and treasure the spaces we shared and lived together. haha life in Professor Bakehorn's class was pretty dope...all those times you went to class with a hungover, drunk, or high. You're a good one and I am sure ya know it! Don't forget me bc I pinky promise I will not. Love you SynSyn!!! <3
Aw man. Where to even begin? first time i ever had a conversation with you was at slc when you introduced yourself. I think about half of what you said were a blend of curse words and some crazy gangster sounding shit. But i am glad it happened that way cause we been homies since with the same attitude no matter where we were. I am glad that you Adrian, Nicole and I gave hell to the chem GSI. I am sure he didnt appreciate the dicks drawn on the clothing but either way it made for a hell of a story to talk about while looking back. I am gonna miss you so much. Congrats on graduating and being a boss. I hope you never lose the enthusiasm and the passion you have for things many are afraid to even talk about. really admirable. Once again it was a great 4 years and keep being you " boo boo". We need to hang at glade once more before we go. Love ya!
