I am on my second roommate, and I have lived here long enough to have 3 great friends move away.
Here is the first, Stephanie.
Stephanie and I signed a contract on our apartment before I even saw it. But she seemed cool, so we went for it. She is a texture artist and was working at an effects studio. It was so great to have a fellow friend who was new to the area. I loved having someone to go to all the activities with and she was always up for exploring our new city. She went home to Utah for a break in between contracts and quite a bit happened. Her contract in Dallas fell through, she found a new opportunity in LA and got engaged! So alas, she came back and packed up her things. But she was a fun roommate while it lasted.

Miss Phylicia Norris. This dear gal was the housing coordinator when I was moving in and matched me up with Steph. She was away on vacation but she still called both of us to make sure we knew about one another. Phylicia and I had some great shopping trips and she taught me all about fashion (she's a total fashionista). Sadly, she moved away to the great state of Idaho. She has been gone for a mere 2 months but has already found a husband. So awesome!
Next up, Kamera. Darling Kamera was so sweet to me on my first day visiting my ward. She made a special effort to chat it up and make sure I knew where all the classes were, etc. She has moved away to Logan for the summer. But hopefully she'll be back soon.
P.S. Thank you for all the kind comments on the last post! Y'all are too sweet.
