Best Friends

Friends come and go, but best friends are forever.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about friendship, especially in adulthood. I’ve always been a very observant and realistic person; I didn’t create those ubiquitous high school friendships.These people, we’d just be friends because of a shared generic class and minimal commonalities. I was of the mind that after school was over I’d be leaving and these people wouldn’t be there with me, so why try too hard, ya know? They were great friends at the time, but not my lifelong besties. Sad but true.

After high school, though, I started embracing friendships. Living in New York City and visiting “back home” opened me up to so many people, and without the constraints of distance and shared classes I was able to make friends based on genuine interests. I met T at a concert and after party where we relished in our vegetarianism and animal activism. We both enjoyed bold colored hair (I believe mine at the time was green) and big city living. T moved to LA, where I’d visit from time to time, and she’d come see me in NYC, stopping by on one of her tours. We weren’t always super close, and we’d sometimes go a few months without talking or texting. But the best part about best friends is that that’s okay! Anytime we’d start talking again we’d pick right back up, the same upbeat chatting as always.

She came to visit this past weekend and it was so great to girl out! We noshed on vegan snacks, got in some good shopping and of course, gabbing and playing with my pets in my room.
