Columbian Friends Volume Three: Kristen Brooke Tweedy


I remember not getting along with Kristen for a while in high school for really silly reasons, most of which involved us both vying for time with David. I wanted him to work on debate/our duo, and she wanted to snuggle with him. In hindsight, I think we were both right, in our own way. However, while we were sort of friends in high school, I think we became much better friends a few years ago, largely because we just have so much in common.

Simply put, Kristen and I understand each other and that is the core of what has become a really strong friendship. At least half a dozen times last week, I would start in on something, like not having anyone my age around me to hang out with, and Kristen would smile and say “I KNOW!!!” and hi-five me. We’re just going through a lot of the same stuff in relationships and life, and that makes her a very easy person to confide in and her in me.

Aside from that, she is just a really fun person to be around. Kristen is a biology genius and drives around Florida all day looking for certain types of water (don’t ask, I’m the guy in biology who electrocuted himself while dissecting a fetal pig) for a living. She’s funny, knows how to handle stress and is fiercely loyal to the people she loves. Kristen is a great person and a better friend.
