Hi everyone and happy Thursday! This week has been really busy! Today I’m including part of a repost I did last year. It’s about one of my good friends and a girls night out we had. I’m using Ritu’s friends prompt. Me and my good friend met when we were 12 years old. We were 6th graders at William D. Slider Middle School in east El Paso. We began to have classes together in 7th and 8th grade. Classes with my friend were always a great time! We were always laughing and picking on boys. The teacher would sometimes ask us to be quiet. Before there was texting, we always wrote each other letters almost everyday. I’d write about the boys I liked, what I was doing on the weekend, etc. Not only did we write letters but we also talked on the phone almost everyday. It’s crazy that she’s been my friend for about 23 years now! No matter how much our lives change, we always keep in touch. We’ve been to each other’s get togethers, baby showers, weddings, etc. She’s one of those friends you can call or text anytime of the day or night, even if it’s just to say hi. Over the years, I’ve had so many friends come and go. Luckily, she hasn’t been one of them. Speaking of girls night out…we have one planned for tonight and I couldn’t be more excited! Have a great day, everyone and I’ll see you soon!
Hi everyone! I hope your day was great! My day was very long today!
I had a nice dinner with a very old friend of mine this evening. Eating tacos and catching up on life are always fun things to do with special people in my life. I’ve been friends with her since we were in sixth grade, so about 22 years now! We’ve seen each other grow up, go through a lot, etc. Like a lot of us, she’s been through some hard times but she’s now doing great for herself. She’s in a loving relationship and works as a counselor for children and adults. She’s one of those friends you might not talk to for months but nothing changes. When I finally sit down to talk with her, it’s as if we just spoke last week. It’s rare to find and keep friends like that in your life. We talked about her relationship, what’s been going on in my life, etc. I’m not sure when we’ll get together again but it’s always a great time! I’ve cherished her friendship throughout the years. She always knows when and how to say the right things to me. She doesn’t sugar coat anything I tell her either.
To this day, I still remember several of the memories we’ve shared throughout the years. Some of the memories include: passing notes in class, talking on the phone for hours, the day she married and divorced one of my friends, hanging out in the middle school cafeteria, talking about cute boys in our classes, laughing and talking too much in algebra and English, the time we liked the same boy (it’s not as bad as you think, he’s very much in love with his boyfriend these days) the day she graduated from college with her bachelors then masters, the times she’s cooked for me at her house, watching one of our favorite shows, House, the list goes on and on! I’m sure we’ll continue to be friends until we’re REALLY old! We don’t get to hang out that much because she works a lot. We both know we can text or call one another anytime. I also relearned a great lesson this week. There are still nice people around us at all times! I’m beginning to believe most people are actually nice!
