People of Pierce: Emily Staples

Alex Heldrich, Reporter

“The biggest struggle of going to college and working is actually maintaining relationships. A lot of the friends I had before coming to Pierce I don’t have anymore, so my main friends right now are my mom and my sister mainly because we live together. It’s really difficult to keep friends that you don’t see every day. They always say that you’re only friends with people because you see them every day which is really true. There’s a triangle and at each end are ‘social life,’ ‘work’ and ‘good grades’ and you can only pick two.”
