a beautiful person.

This is Hadley. She is one of my favorites.

She runs, takes sunshiney pictures, works at a bookstore, writes, wears crazy nail polish, reads lots of big books, and has a vast collection of very, very cute shoes.

We love the same cheesy movies, random internet humor, sad songs, superheroes, and youtube videos. We're totally opposite in a lot of ways, but we have the same opinions/convictions/freaky thoughts about most everything.

Kerilynn, Bethany, Hadley & I
My mom, not that long ago, said to me "you should get to know Hadley better. she seems really awesome." and I was like "yeah we're friends but we'll never be very close... she's so smart/serious. I don't think we'd ever get along that well."

HAH. I was very wrong. now, I would be lost without her.

We've graduated together, seen Les Miserables, stayed up all night on the trampoline, watched Thor, drank much hot chocolate, watched many Disney movies, and stayed up 'til past 4 talking on multiple occasions.

She introduced me to Lilo and Stitch, homemade animal cookies, "Party Rock Anthem", and flushing public toilets with your foot (who does that??)

We psycho-analyze people together, give play-by-play debriefings when we have to miss out on important events in each others' lives, and pick apart songs to find out their hidden meaning. We criticize faulty pinterest quotes and spam each others' inboxes. 

We chat online about deep things and inane things. we overuse hashtags and pretty much never go a day without talking.

She's intellectual, short, determined, and supportive and loyal to a fault. She's a listener and a hugger and a fighter for the people she cares about.
