Ok so I am an evil witch some days of the week but my friends know the "real" Coco. They even told me how great I was. Those heffas almost brought me to tears. Read what they said:
My sistafriend and co-plaintiff, I have really enjoyed being your friend over the past eight years (wow, that is a log time). You can always offer me encouragement and a compliment when I need it most. You are also an extremely loyal friend (and you, like me are currently paying for your loyalty); but your reaching out to a friend in need is still a great testament to how seriously you take friendship and the lengths to which you are willing to go for a friend. You are incredibly honest at all times—I know if I ask you how you are doing you are really going to tell me how you are doing, which I appreciate quite a bit. I am just so blessed to have you as a friend; love you!!!
My snappy, southern, sistafriend! I am so happy that we have begun to touch base more often. Your words of encouragement have been a blessing! I admire your ability to tell it like it is to the folks that need it. You have the ability to cut through the bs and say what everyone else was thinking in the room. I have also observed your ability to wait on God to direct your paths even when the waiting gets tough. Because of your patience and refusal to settle, I know that God is going to bless you in your career big time! Keep your head up and I will continue to pray for your success!
My fellow southern bred aries sister from the second flo! We have so many things in common, from our upbringing to our likes and dislikes, to being our ideals about friendship. Your friends are very important to you which is reflected by your thoughtful and caring actions. The people around you must have the same consideration and you don't tolerate anything less. For this reason, "friends" have come and gone but that has only made the circle tighter. Law school wasn't what you thought it would be but you overcame all that was trying to hold you back and succeeded. I love that you passionately tackle your goals and have refused to settle for less. I know the job search is difficult, especially when you know exactly what you want. Know that God has something great for you; be patient and you will be blessed. we may not talk as often as before, but I am always here if you need me and I read your blog all the time. You have been a great friend. Thanks for all the years and I look forward to many more.
Take equal parts of Sensitive, strong, demure &, lady like mixed with a pinch of sass & a whole heap of intelligence, let that marinate for about 26 years and you will have the quintessential southern belle sistafriend that we all love: Coco.
Coco you have many admirable qualities but the first one that always comes to my mind is your southern sensibility. Frankie Beverly has a song called "southern girl" and whenever I hear it I think of you (now look, I'm not big on lyrics so if the song is about something nasty then I'm sorry. That wouldn't be the part that reminds me of you.)
... ...southern-belle, hospitalitable, nice-sty but-don't-cross-me, georgia peach, strong, goal-oriented...my roomie...Coco, esquire...
What I admire about you the most is your drive. You are determined and goal-oriented. You are caring and giving, though you don't like to show it. I can honestly say that I would not have made it through freshman year, if you had been selfish with your printer or other items that you generously let me share. I'll never forget all the thoughtful things that you've done for me, including cards and gifts that you gave to me for birthdays and during difficult times. I pray that God grants you the deepest desires of your heart. I love you...
Channel & Fendi
One of the strongest women I know. I admire your confidence. You love yourself in a way that is truely special. You don't have a phony bone in your body. My fondest memory of you was when you gave the dude at Taco Bell a tongue lashing. You won't allow anyone to even think about playing you. I love that I never have to wonder where I stand with you. You always remind us that the best action in the face of adversity is prayer. My only regret is not getting a chance to kick it with you in the A.
Love you all madly,
Other than my roomate and our RAs you are the only person I remember clearly from freshman move-in. I remember you had on a baby-tee-esque top and some overalls. Your dad told me all about you. I remember thinking...she must be shy or something for her dad to be introducing her to follks. HA!!! You are bold, assertive, loyal, and you demand that the desires of your heart be taken seriously. Overtime we've bonded over many issues--like being from the South and DADDIES! I could always count on you to be honest, sincere, and reasonable. I shared some of my most memorable HU moments with you. Remember when I walked to you room, remembered I left my wallet in my room, and we walked two floors down to my room (all this took less than 5 mins) only to find my room in a certain condition...LOL. You were always there to provides rides, a comfortable space, and even share your mom when she was in town. I know that great things are in store for you. I know it may be taking a while longer for some things to come to pass, but consider it like a stew--it takes a while to get done--but when it is...perfection! I love you dearly and I pray that you continue to strive, perservere, and remain true to yourself and your values. I love you much Coco!
There should be more but the rest of them heffas ain't send me nothing!
