Others are instantaneous.
I don't know how it happens, really. One minute you are being introduced to the person, the next you've realized that you've just met someone who is practically your soul mate. Who you can depend on no matter what, even though they've never proven otherwise. These friendships are abnormal - and awesome. And I've had at least three throughout my life.
|Freshman Year - Jessica and Me|
We did all sorts of crazy things - walking and riding our bikes all over town, dressing up or speaking in fake accents while we visited local establishments. Carrying dead fish around. We created secret hide-a-ways and forts in the woods behind her house. She had a penchant for finding the strangest things and turning it in to the most hilarious of treasures.
|Becca, Kira, me and Ashley|
|Me, Aubs and Becca|
We celebrate our third anniversary - Becca, is that right? It seems like so much longer! But I remember by how we celebrated: Bear Lake and the Rodeo- this year, and it's going to be really hard when we are separated by half the world. :(
But it was on Tuesday, when she came over to watch Biggest Loser at my apartment, that we decided we were best friends. Of course, saying it doesn't always make it true - except for in this case. We actually do have a lot in common, which certainly helps. From the point of where we are in our lives, to certain experiences, even to different health issues, we have so many similarities, that I'm blown away.
Also, I'm pretty sure that she is going to make me a better person. She seems a lot more forgiving, good-natured and more mature than me. In the six days that I've known Megan, I've found that she is also fun, funny, giving, caring, selfless, and just...awesome. I am so excited to continue you to get to know her and to hang out with her. It's just one of those friendships that were meant to be.
