Admittedly, I’m not the best at making (or keeping) friends. I’m a little bit of a social outcast; always have been, even in grade school. I had one best childhood friend before we moved then I lost contact with her; two friends during grade school and lost contact with them after being pulled to home school in 5th grade. My characters in my stories were pretty much my best friends until I joined 4-H at 15.
I met both of my “real life” friends through 4-H, Ann in Horse & Pony, Jenni in Dog Obedience class -waves to them- We’re still friends, almost 8 years later. I talk to both of them on a usually-daily basis, through IMs or texts, and I love them
And then, on the other side of the coin, I have my closest “internet” friends, Wiz and Sadie; both of them I met on a virtual dog-sim site (of which I was a part of for longer than I was in 4-H xD!) and we hit it off well. I don’t even remember how I met them, honestly, just that they’re awesome and a big part of my life.
These four amazing people lift me up when I’m down, listen when I need to rant, and are just there for me. I just hope I’m as good of a friend to them, as they are to me
Friends are awesome! ILU gaiz
