Today I am talking about how my best friend and I met. My best friend’s name is Sydney Rott. The story of how we met is a cliché but I am going to explain it anyway. We didn't know each other up until my Sophomore year and her Junior year. I decided I wanted to go out for the tennis team, even though I have never really played before, I still decided to join. Sydney was the number one player for the Harrisburg Tennis Team. I thought that she was a brat when I first met her, but as time went on I started to like her.
Everyone has a friend that they would do anything for. Mine was my best friend McKenna, we had everything in common. We both like the same music, we both could go from shopping and going to Starbucks and within an hour we would be covered in dirt chasing a chicken or climbing trees. I still remember the day we met, it was almost nine years ago. We both were going to “The Little Summer Camp”. At that camp you would make a friend and hang out with them for a day then probably never see them again. Believe it or not this is almost exactly what happened with us. I remember while we were playing with blocks she was telling me about how her brother doesn't know how to pump gas and for some reason I held on to that story for eight years.
My friend Ellijah is one of the most outgoing, animated and hard-working friends I have met. He is the same age as I am. We have been extremely close friends since 6th grade, when my transfer from Farmington Schools to Lakeville Schools happened. Our friendship started in Middle School gym class, and still continues today. One of the first things we learned about each other was, we both lived between two houses growing up, and had many brothers and sisters along with step-parents. Joining a new school was something scary to me and a hard to do. Especially becoming new to the city of Lakeville. Ellijah was there to hang out and help me whenever I needed it. We are still close friends today! We attend the same Church group at Hosanna, play on the same football team, and get food with Tommy, Bryce, and Jack on the weekends at Chipotle.
When we both entered separate high schools, we began to face a problem that we had never experienced or even thought about, distance. Beginning a new lifestyle with new friends and a new social environment without each other probably made our first year of high school the worst. Not being able to see each other every day created invisible barriers between the two of us. There were depressing situations where we needed the calming comfort of our best friend but we were a few kilometers away from each other. We later realized that it was in our best interest to learn how to adjust. By the 10th grade, we were able to manage our time and workload so we could make time for each other. We would text every day, if not, every other day and video chat using skype whenever we could. We would always start our conversations with a detailed update of what happened in our lives since the last time we talked. We managed to learn how to communicate with one another in such a way that it was almost like we did not miss a single
Although this was in 4th grade and I still remember it like it was just yesterday, we enjoyed the friendship while it lasted. On the day that Matt left the school, I never felt any lonelier, I got lonelier, and even lonelier. I felt the tears rolling down my eyes. Though I still had my other friends to hang out, play, and do other things with, he symbolized a great friend that no one can replace.
One day when it was really hot outside we went swimming in Vincent's pool and played marco polo. I was trying to escape the person who was it by going underwater and when I started to come up out of the water I felt someone's foot clawing at my back. Once I emerged I saw Matthew was the only person near me so i knew that he did so I yelled at him. He pleaded that it wasn't him and his friends backed him up so I decided to stop playing and sat in a chair near the pool looking at my painful wound. After they were done playing in the pool they wanted to jump on the trampoline. I joined them and had fun for a bit until Matthew sent me flying into the
We could not keep secrets from each other it was just a difficult thing to do. We never left each other’s side for any reason and there was never a day that would go by when we would not talk. It was the best feeling in the world, something I never experienced before. We had many promises but the one that meant the most was the promise to be best friends until the end.
My freshman year, I became best friends with Whitney Turner, a senior, we did everything together it seemed like. She did so much for me that year, from taking me to practice to giving great advice. My sophomore year I decided to not only play volleyball and basketball but to also run track, one of my worst decisions I made I think. This year was one of my favorites for sure. I had many friends who were older and I was able to hang out with them all of the time. One of my really good friends was Kaylee Irwin, you could find us together all of the time. We have so many memories together from going to the lake to driving around listening to music. During basketball season my teammates and I were very close. We hung out almost every weekend and there was never a dull moment with those girls. During this year, the boy’s basketball went to the state championship and I was able to a part of that. The summer before my junior year, I was asked to be a part of the Madison County Youth Leadership Academy. This was such an amazing experience and it truly made me a better person. Also during my junior year, I started dating Connor Love and he has made such an impact on my
Have you ever had a friend that stayed with you for over 12 years? I have, and it's been a long and exciting ride. Let me take you through this story that lasted that long. It all started when I was three years old. My Mom and Dad bought a Spider-Man bike. At the time the bike was too big for me so I had to wait until I was old enough to ride it. Finally, I was big enough to ride the little piece of metal on wheels I was waiting to ride for what felt like ages. my Mom, Dad and I went to Kennedy Park. I envisioned that I was going to crash. Although I was scared to ride that fear turned into excitement. Before I knew it, my Dad pushed me and my little red and blue bike down a grassy hill. That little moment got me that much closer to what
My best friend's name is Hailey Nesci. We met here at the University of Kentucky on the second day of school. It turns out that her cousin is one of my best guy friends at home- a suburb outside of Chicago. Days before leaving for school, Max (Hailey's cousin), told me to look out for his cousin because she was going to be rushing a sorority at UK just like me. In no way did I ever think I would actually meet her, let alone be best friends with her to this day, but when the first day of school came around we got assigned to the same "rush group" for our sorority. We all introduced ourselves and said where we were from. On the second day, we were walking around campus with our group and I asked her where in Chicago she was from, because she
In second grade at Blue River Elementary School, my friend Peyton and I were not very good friends. One day Peyton's mom came in to eat lunch with her. In elementary school, we could pick a friend to eat with us in the back room with our parents. That day Peyton chose me to eat lunch with her which was surprising because I didn't really know her. At lunch, we learned a lot about each other. At recess, we played with each other without anyone else. The next day her mom came again and she happily picked me. That day was like magic because from that day on we were best friends. Even though we had been friends since preschool we didn't officially know each other until that time. We now say that we were meant to become best friends and
At the beginning of the school year, my friend Sam was in my math class. We had never been close, but since we had the class together first period, we had become closer. We started spending time together with our mutual friend Nick. And the following summer, I had some of the best days of my life - I was out of the house almost every day with people I loved and who loved me too. Sam is my best friend and Nick’s now my boyfriend, and I wouldn’t have anyone else as my best
