True friends always stick by your side

It seems like only yesterday I was filling out college applications, picking out a senior prom dress and having the time of my life as a senior in high school. I cannot believe that I am almost done my second year of college. When looking back it feels like time has flown by and the last couple of years are almost just a blur.

In high school my friends and I could not wait to finish high school and go off to college to meet new people and experience what college is all about. When we all found out that we would be going to different colleges, we were sad but none of us were really going too far away. As the last two years have passed most of us still remain friends and love to reminisce about high school memories.

One of my best friends, Cait, has been by my side since the very first day of high school. In our first period science class, on the very first day of school, she turned around and introduced herself and since then we have remained close friends through thick and thin. She’s one of those friends that I might go a week without talking to and then when we finally get in touch with each other and we will talk for hours at a time. Although we go to different colleges, we never go more than a week without talking because she’s like a sister, who if you don’t talk to her, something is just missing.

My other best friend, Olivia, is one of those girls who if I go a month without speaking to her because we are always too busy, when we do talk, it’s like we just picked up where we left off. She’s one of those people who I can always rely on no matter what happens. I look up to her because she is so selfless and will help anyone out in need.

No matter what mistakes I have made and what a jerk I can be, these two girls have always been my true friends. I can act totally crazy with them, cry on their shoulders, make fun of them and just be myself without being judged. It’s the best feeling in the world when you always know you have someone to turn to, even in the worst situations they will always help you out.

I see some girls who have friends that back-stab them, lie and just treat their so called friends horribly. When I hear about those situations I thank god that my friends aren’t like that, in fact, they are the complete opposite.

Since we have gone away to different schools we have made new friends, but still no one can take back those years at Prendie we had together.

We all go to different schools but always make time for one another. It is very hard at times, but as we grow up we try not to grow apart. So many people I have known from high school have just drifted away, but these girls are my best friends who I know will one day be at my wedding, be there for my first child’s first birthday and still be ready to party when we’re 50 years old.
