This page is dedicated to my friends. They are smart, loyal, caring and kind. They are strong where I am weak and they help me up when I fall down. They are wise when I am not, and they never hesitste to tell me, "Pull your head out of your ass, Amanda!!", when that is what I need to hear.

The picture on the left is of two of my very best friends, Melody Marchant (left) and Tiffany Hanulec. The picture was taken when Tiffany came to visit me in California.

Congratulations are in order to both Melody and Tiffany because they both were graduated from college this May (me too!). Melody graduated from BIOLA (the Bible Institute of Los Angeles) and Tiffany graduated from Bryn Mawr. Melody is going on for one more year of study to get her teaching certificate and then its off to an as-yet-undisclosed location with the Peace Corps. I am so proud of her! As for Tiffany, she and Adam Preset were married in a lovely ceremony on June 7, 1998. They both work for Swarthmore College's computing center. As Always, I wish them every happiness in the world.To the right you will see a picture of me and my other best friend, Kristina Davis. Krissy graduated from Bryn Mawr in May of 1997, and both Tiffy and I have missed her terribly since then. But, we are all so happy for her since, after all of her grueling work doing a double-majorMat Bryn Mawr in both history and art history, Krissy went on to graduate school at the Art Institute of Chicago. She is currently kicking ass in her chosen field. We only wish that Chicago wern't so far away. Maybe I can convince Krissy-Krissy to come visit me in California this summer...

Now that I have bragged and boasted about my friends, I'd just like to say that I hope everyone reading this is lucky enough to have friends as wonderful as mine...
