Throughout the past two sessions at FIT, I have made a tremendous amount of friends. People ranging from Connecticut, to Pennsylvania, to even Ireland. Friends from all walks of life, all religions, all nationalities, and all sexualities. This semester, however, I made one friend who stands out in my mind. She lives about 30 minutes away from me – she’s from Smith town and I’m from West Islip (Long Island bound!). She’s outspoken, caring, and crazy, so we mesh well. She doesn’t care what others think about her and she does what she wants when she wants and she doesn’t care what anyone has to say about it. She’s so fabulous, I can’t even handle it sometimes.
Another friend I made is Daniela. She attends my BOCES program during the week, and we have become best friends. When I met her, we just clicked. She also takes FIT classes in the morning, so every Saturday the three of us hangout after class. Unlike Alex and I, she is much more quiet and to herself. Ironically, us three just click. We usually get something to eat at Subway, or get something to drink at Starbucks once class is over. We always talk about our reality-show-like lives and help each other through some strange situations. We are like the three amigos, I swear.
Us three are and will continue to be inseparable. FIT really creates such strong bonds between the most unlikely of people.
Has FIT brought about any unlikely relationships to you? Tell me about it !:D
Making new friends at F.I.T. has been surprisingly easy!
When I first started the program I didn’t know anyone in my class! As the weeks pass, I’m slowly starting to get to know everyone. My first day of class I met up with my friend Bianca who is a returning Precollege student but is in a different class than me. We took the train and the ferry together – it was really nice to have someone to take the trip with. We talked about our first day, assignments, goals … things that I wouldn’t normally talk to my friends about. That’s what I really like that about F.I.T., it’s nice having an adult conversation with someone my age.
Since I’ve only been to two classes so far (because I have games on Saturdays) I feel a little out of the loop sometimes. However, when I walked into class last week I was greeted with big smiles from two girls that arrived before me. As my other classmates started rolling in, we started talking as a group. We discussed Daniel Raddcliffe AKA Harry Potter, boyfriends, what exactly a Bristol board was and halloween costumes. After last week I’m starting to feel like I’ve bonded with some of the girls and I’m starting to make friends. I would tell you who I talked to specifically but I’m really,really… REALLY bad with names! I can remember everyone’s face, what they were wearing and where they sit but it’s almost impossible for me to remember names!
My mission next week is to learn every girl’s name… and remember it! Hope everyone is making friends!
