Coffee with Mrs. Gorrell. Realizing that mama G is such a gem. She has the biggest heart for college students, it’s incredible. Today she told me, “Olivia, I would go to the ends of the earth for you.” Sounds super cheesy but she was so sincere I wanted to cry. Love that woman so much, I wish I could bring her to Duke with me.
Lunch with care, kelse, mel
