To My Best friend Since Freshman Year

Tomorrow is our last day of high school ever. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. I remember the first day we ever talked like it was yesterday, we spent the whole class laughing that day. It’s funny to think that for the first couple months we refused to say a word to each other because we were from different schools and assumed we would hate each other. Freshman year we made a lot of mistakes, but we learned SO much that year! Even back then we were already done with high school and thought we were ready to get the hell out of there. Little did we know the journey that was ahead of us. The years after we had our ups and downs. Sometimes going weeks without talking. Even with having not one class with you, we still managed to keep our friendship alive. Can you believe we went the last three years with not one class together?

You have been the one person I consider my “best friend” for years now. High school wasn’t the best time for me, and I’m thankful you had my back through it all. From our late night Ben and Jerry’s talks in your kitchen about anything and everything, To the times I would be freaking out because it felt as if the world was ending, when looking back, really I had nothing to worry about. All the inside jokes, the silly pictures, the secrets, everything. Through high school you have been my rock. Literally. I could not have gotten through all my stupid decisions without you. I don’t know how I’m going to get through the day without knowing you’re in the same building if I need you. I’ll miss talking crap on the girls who didn’t like us or making fun of the boys who thought they were the shit.

What makes me feel most blessed to have had you there all this time is that you never once judged me. Even when I judged myself. When I had no one to turn to sophomore year you snapped me 24/7 to make sure I was okay and just to check up on me. You have no idea how thankful for that I really was. When I find myself thinking about one of the many stupid things I've done, you were always right there to help me pick up the pieces.

In just a week we will do what we’ve waited years to do. We will walk across that stage and finally say we made it. As we go on our different paths I hope you know how proud I am of everything you are and everything you will become. I can’t wait to see where life takes you because I know it will be far. You are one of the greatest people I have come to know in the last 4 years. So thank you for putting up with my boy problems, and all the drama I put you through. You have no idea the impact you have had on my high school experience.
