Is it rare to have a class of residents who actually like each other and get along? When I moved away from home, the residents in my class were not just peers– they became my family. When one member leaves, you get hit with a sense of loss that affects you far more than you could’ve imagined. When more than one member leaves, you try even harder to keep your support system from falling apart even further, only to hope and find comfort in believing that life circumstances have led them to a better path. I’m fortunate to have formed wonderful friendships with amazing people over the course of one year, but will definitely last a lifetime. C’est la vie.
