I'll summarize: She is one of my all-time favorite people (and one of my maids of honor!), she is a grad student at UCLA, and she's 95% of the reason that I looked forward to family reunions as a child (harsh but TRUE). I digress.
Christine and I have never lived in the same state. In fact, we have normally lived in different parts of the country (she grew up on the East Coast, now lives on the West Coast, and I am a lifelong Midwesterner).
We have always clicked though.
Why do we get along so well? I really can't put a finger on it, but it must have something to do with how smart she is (she goes to UCLA, remember). Just kidding. Really, we have just always gotten along. While not geography, we have so much else in common (politics, gin, a shared love of Bradley Cooper). I adore her. I'm lucky to have her as a cousin-friend, a maid-of-honor, and a soul sista.
Christine: Congrats on the end of your second-to-last set of finals... ever!
