One of my best friends Paige did a blog post recently about friendship. It was about how she met me and Alice, and how our relationship has gotten stronger over the years. It was such a beautiful post (made me cry), with some photos of amazing memories that we have had together. So this made me think and I thought about friendship and what it really means to be a friend to someone else. I've had a lot of friends over the years. Most of them I just fell out of touch, some of them it ended a bit more harshly, which I wish it didn't but sometimes in life that happens. The rest I still keep in contact with. But two of my friends that have stuck by me through everything Alice and Paige mean a lot to me. I'm so glad that I can count on them being there and I don't feel ashamed or judged when I tell them things. I can tell them anything and they won't judge at all they just tell me their views and sometimes even make a joke out of it (which I like, makes me more relaxed). Those are a few reasons why they are more than friends to me, more like best friends, or even sisters!

I think friendship can be a hard thing to come by as you get older as you start to realize what being a friend is all about. Also, that it's not about having the most friends it's about having true ones. So having friends that you trust is the most important thing because if you can't trust them then how are you ever going to be honest with them and be able to connect with them. Quiet a lot of the time people don't even know if they are friends with someone or not, they feel like they would call them a friend but are not sure if they will call them that back. But I think this is more of an insecurity thing.

I met Alice in year 9/10 and we got closer as I moved to her English class and we were into a lot of the same things like Youtube, music ect. One day we talked about making our own Youtube channel. So we did. From then on our friendship got stronger and we became the best of friends. We make videos still for our channel and we couldn't be any closer.

I met Paige as I used to hang out with the people that Alice would hang out with and Paige was one of them. We were friends but we weren't that close. But we could hold a conversation together and we got on really well. Just didn't spend enough time with each other I think. As one day Paige asked me if I wanted to go out for dinner with her and we had an amazing time and talked for hours. From then on we've been best of friends.

It's funny how I become friends with these girls in different ways but they are still as important to me as each other. It goes to show that it doesn't matter how you become friends with someone, if you have things in common and you get on then it works. I don't think either of us will ever have a falling out over anything as we just don't care enough about petty stuff. We also think our friendship is too important.

We had a really sad moment around the end of summer time where we met up and had a goodbye day for Paige before she went off to uni to do Law (She's the clever one out of us 3 haha). It was such an amazing day but also very emotional, we all cried saying goodbye. It'll probably be the same when Alice goes off to uni in September (she is 100% the most creative out of all of us!). But the great thing is we will still stay in touch as we do now, talking now and again and meeting up when we can. That's why it works so well really because we all put in so much effort with each other.

As you can tell I started to ramble on a bit there, sorry I do that a lot. So I decided I'll end this here, and I hope you enjoyed this blog. A little insight into me and my best friends. I loved writing this blog and I hope you enjoyed reading it just as much.

See you next week for another blog post.
