BC: “If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.” - Winnie the Pooh
2: Wessica, I've known you for a while... when you were still known as Jessica/Jessykaz! I just wanted to let you know that you'll be greatly missed here in LA and I really mean it. Going out on the weekends just isn't going to be the same without you. | More importantly, who the hell is going to supply me with QQs (I actually JUST finished my last bag right now)?! Best of luck over in NY; learn a lot and have tons of fun re-living scenes from Gossip Girl. xo xo
3: Jess, our get-togethers will not be the same without you and roxy! While I'll miss you dearly, I'm super excited for you! I can already see you walking the streets of NY and enjoying everything the sleepless city can offer. | The Class of 2014 is so lucky to have you. I'm jealous that they get to have you for a while. I'll definately visit you when I stay out there for the weekend. Otherwise come home often, we'll win your heart back with yummy asian food
4: Jessykaz! You are (in chronological order by year): one of the first people I met at UCLA, the person that convinced me to rush DSP, my underage drinking buddy, and old roommate. The upper westside is taking away the person I share memories with, of truth or dare night (freshman), champagne drinking for your “21st” bday (sophomore), NYC spring break (junior), and bra snapping night with Frances in your potty (senior). I’ll miss the drunk Yoshinoya nights, backpacking thru Westwood, hipcooking, Disneyland, Boyz2Men-ing, and fanta-ing in China. But the last 8 years are only the beginning of our adventures! I guess we'll have to party in the USA!!!
5: Big Bro!!! Where do I begin? I can't imagine what my life would be like without you. When I met you at DSP rush it was love at first sight and I am so thankful that things turned out the way that they did. You truly are a beautiful person both inside and out. I am so proud of you and all of your accomplishments and so very excited for all of your upcoming adventures in New York. Thank you for being such and amazing friend. I am going to miss you soo much, but I promise to come visit! Love you like a fat kid loves cake!
6: My Dearest Grand Big Bro, I can't believe you are leaving! =( It has been a great 6 years here in LA, especially being in your family line, getting to know you and hanging out with you. You've always been the one who brought everyone together - whether it was a good or bad week, during finals, after a hard day at work or just any random time, you are always down to have fun! | I will definitely miss your lovely, sweet smile and will always remember the great and crazy nights we've had (*ahem* 99 apples =P). I hope you have a wonderful and fulfilling time in NY and please, don't forget to come back and visit! I will sure visit you in NY some time next year! Maybe we can have another round of the 99 apples night up in NYC! =D Good luck with everything and remember that you will definitely be missed!
7: HELLO!! I still remember the first time I shared a laugh with you - it was in the back seat of your bmw coupe and you were giving me a ride back to the dorms after a dsp rush event. Luke was hysterical but your laugh was infectious. I'm so glad I got to share so many more with you. Not only laughs but you and your family opened up their arms in so many ways... I will NEVER forget Shanghai and will never drink alone. Maybe that mantra is why you have so many friends. I'm sad to 'lose' you to New York, but I know you'll have a blast and I'll see you again. Thanks for always smiling and putting up with us boys. Wish you the best.
8: Jess! Pbro! Good luck with B school and I will definitely hit you up when I'm in NYC - somehow I have a feeling we'll end up seeing each other more since go there a ton more than LA for work! Also looking forward to your trip to SF for Terry's bday before you finally head off - let's party it up for old times sake!
9: Hi mother dearest...I am so proud of you! Can't believe you're going to move across the country, leaving sunny LA -- but definitely worth the distance. Congrats on your great accomplishment and best of luck to you at Columbia. CALI and I will miss you dearly, but I'm sure that I will come visit you veryyy soon :) Keep up the hard work, and don't forget to party even harder (you party animal you!) We will get chicken and rice soon enough!
10: To the girl with the brightest smile and perfect head tilt.. | LA just won't be the same without you! Thanks for years and years of great memories- the countless Vegas trips, drunken nights, azn clubs, late night grub, and just being the best friend, sister, mentor, and great grand big ever . See you in NY!
12: Jessica Lee Have an awesome time at Columbia/NYC! I will miss you dearly in LA...and will definitely try to enjoy my extended 2 year vacation from Wessica. Visit often and I'll try to visit when I can. Let's plan more future vacations together! Love you, Mi
13: Jess, Congrats! I'm so happy for you but sad that you're leaving us. I know you'll have a blast in NY but hopefully you don't forget us! Your one of my best buds and I'll miss ya. Matt
14: Jess! I am so excited to see what the future has in store for you! We will miss your hearty laughs and your kind smiles! I have no doubt that you will enrich NYC with your smarts, nice hair, beauty and fantastic personality.
15: Heyooooo! I don’t feel tiyod. I want some beef noodle SOUP! Wow wow wooooooooow. Jess moving to NYC = SUK! Night Night! And theeeeeeeen? Chaaaaaatttaaaa. That’s nooooiiiiiiceeeee. Shiiiiieeeeeeetttt. Poppin Bottle? OH OK OK. Blaaastoiseeee...I guess what I’m trying to say is, I’ll miss you and I’m glad we became such close friends post-college (which is ironic since I moved 400 miles away right afterwards right?). I’ll be sure to visit often and continue to build on the good memories together. I love you! Latas! Terry
17: I love you mommy! Thank you for always taking such great care of me. You are the world's best Mommy. I promise to be there for you everyday, when you wake up in the morning, when you get back from class and when you go to sleep at night. I promise to always make your day better and to never stop bringing a smile to your face.
18: Lean on me, when you're not strong And I'll be your friend I'll help you carry on For it won't be long 'Til I'm gonna need Somebody to lean on...

24: Knowing you will be with me in all my tomorrows, makes my today so wonderful. | love
25: happy times | You are one of the sweetest, most hilarious, fun, down girl I know. I am so sad that you are leaving me after I moved to LA for you! I guess that means I will have to visit. We have had so many adventures! NPC, ding dong incident, making it rain in vegas (Mi counting her money), endless drinking, heart to hearts on bbm, happy hours, apt 201, late night phils bbq, lots of popcorn, road trip in the 5 speed minivan... The list goes on! I know everyone always says it, but I mean it... Keeeeeeeep innnnnn touchhhhh!!!! I'll miss youuuu! | To my dearest Wessica, Wessup cellars, Jessykaz: I cannot believe it has been less than a year since we've become friends! I remember being so nervous to meet you because I knew I really wanted us to become best buds!
