How We Met : Her Story
During my second day at ODU, I went to my second class of the day, operations management. As classes ended I received a call from a friend (Hey Terra!) asking about my first week of school. I was walking up the rows out the door, and he was walking down the rows, we passed each other and said “Hi”. I told Terra “it has been pretty boring so far, but they sure have some fine black men here!” Over the next three months we continued to run into each other through mutual friends. I befriended him on Facebook after seeing him on a friend’s page (Hey Shane!) and even got to know him a little better after my first new friend and sorority sister (Hey Sade!) would take me with her to the village to visit mutual friends of theirs. He was ALWAYS in the village when we went, later I found out he was greek and they were his line brothers, so It all made sense.
After a few months of seeing each other occasionally there was huge Nor’Easter in Norfolk, Va. There were only a few places that had complete power, and places that had emergency power. Luckily Sade had emergency power, and I had complete power. We spent most of the day and early evening in the hallways of Sade’s dorm laughing and talking under the dim emergency lights with all of our friends. We all went to eat at Ihop later that night, since the dining halls were close, and it was there I received a text. “This is Josh, save my number.” I know Shane ratted me out, telling Josh I thought he was cute. I must admit I was upset that he gave him my number instead of making him have to ask me for it (I finally forgive you Shane). That night, when everyone started going their separate ways as most people had emergency power at this point, Josh was the only one still without power because he lived off campus. Everyone else was going to their significant others house, or to their family’s house that did not live on campus, but Josh had neither. I invited him back to watch movies with my roommate and I (Hey Courtney), since we were one of the few with complete power due to our generator and could actually watch tv and also had heat. From that point on we were inseparable. From the beginning we both knew our friendship would be special and full of great memories, it is no surprised that we are on the path to forever.
