This past week has included celebrating 21st birthdays, attending a baby shower, spending time with my friends from high school, and procrastinating anything having to do with school. What a great spring break!
I've been lucky to have friends stick around for long periods of time in my life.
New friends are great and I look forward to making new ones, but there is nothing like the friends that you grow up with. They are the ones that loved you during your awkward stages of adolscences and didn't run for the hills when you're hormones caused you to become a crazy person.You are dealing with so many new life experiences and it's the closest you're going to get to being in the exact same stage of life with someone. Being able to swap awkward "first" stories is fun, but being the phone call immediately after they happen or being part of the story is the best!
The friends you make as a kid (or teenager) are the ones that allow you to slip back into that care-free mindset temporarily when you see each other again. The only difference is that the fun of sneaking around with each other has been replaced by being allowed to do it.
Hold on to the good ones, because really connecting with people is a special thing.
