Friendship Parallelism

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset

I’ve come to the realization that Bailey and I are completely cut from the same cloth…with the same scissors…and the same pattern. yeah, it weirds us out too.

This year we started college in a major we thought we would be interested in, we were friends with so many people and had a positive outlook on things even though we were pretty scared. Many of the times we were just talking to each other over the phone and on Skype. not even sorry. Then we got farther into the semester and realized we couldn’t really accomplish some of the things we had in mind..so we switched majors basically together (to separate subjects don’t worry) We both had a biology course…we both barely passed. Second semester we both pretty much tried to start over. We started to become individuals and well we kinda disliked more of the people we had surrounded ourselves with the semester before.

We’re both going to get through the next two weeks and move back home for the summer. We’re both going to be extremely excited when we finally see each other again. We’re both going to work over the summer and get money to pay back our huge student loans. It’s going to be great and I’m so glad I have Bailey in my life to complain to and call whenever I get extremely stressed out. She is my soulmate and she is my person and I cherish her just as much as I cherish my own family. I don’t know what I would do if she wasn’t in my life…and to be completely honest this first year at college would have been completely different without her, even though we weren’t together.  Can’t wait to be home this weekend. ❤

IMG_4369So, t’s 1 AM and I’m on season 2, episode 14 of friends. And Abi’s leaving in 8 hours and 6 minutes from a cracker barrel with her friend to go back to college and I’m sad and already miss her. A lot. And I don’t want to sleep because then, well I’ll waste time I could be watching Friends, and also then she leaves sooner, which is sad so here I am; awake, writing a blog post, and watching Friends.

I wish that we didn’t have to college so far away from each other. I wish that we both went to the same school, that we could be roommates, that we could hang out every day. But we don’t, but it’s alright because we went three months without seeing each other our first semester, so I know we can make it this next semester, and our next 3 years too.

I also wish that I was in Friends, and that I was best friends with Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Ross, and Joey. But being best friends with Abi kind of seems like the same thing. I mean we hang out in our beds, which is kind of the same as hanging out in their apartment. We like coffee, so we’d go to Central Perk. We’re not poor twenty year olds, but we are poor eighteen year olds. We don’t have love lives. Well, Abi does, she won’t admit it though. And we also don’t live together, or live in the same state during college, so actually there’s no real connection there. But anyway, Abi’s my friend. My best friend. And I already miss her so much it’s unreal. And I wish we were already graduated college and living together, and being poor together, and drinking coffee together. But we have to get through the next three and a half years first, but I know we can.

“I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour, I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before, I’ll be there for you, cause you’re there for me too” Abi once told me that this song “holds truth in the chorus. I’ll be there for you. Easy enough! Simple but effective.” Because she’s the greatest friend in the world, and we’ll always be there for each other.
