I was thinking about how long I've been friends with these two and I cannot believe we've come so far. Yah, we're all in different countries now and we're all focused on making a life, but nothing has changed. I don't talk to them often. We barely have 3-way Skype calls. We haven't been in the same room since... i don't even remember. It's all good though because the memories will always keep us together no matter what. That's only a part of why I cherish these two people. Hsiang, Lexy, and I have this bond that can never be replaced and I know that 100%. There are moments when I just have to thank God for them because they remind me how awesome life actually is. Let's put it this way, they will always be the ones who 'didn't listen.' They will always be the ones who stood up for me. They will always be the ones who confronted me first. They will always be the ones who went through heaven and hell for me to find my passion. To sum up everything, I am who I am today because of these two. God knows how much I praise them for that.
When it comes to the reality of friendship, it's these dudes who really gave me the most genuine meaning of it. We really did grow up together, it's as simple as that. We had numerous loooong and late night raids on WoW. We formed a band. We made small businesses. We helped each other cheat in tests. We did each other's projects. We would talk like there was no tomorrow. We had drunken nights and inside jokes. We had early morning drives to 7/11 just to eat or drink or smoke. We had sleepovers wherein all we did was laugh and air drum / guitar to Taking Back Sunday. We shared accounts on itunes. We have an unhealthy amount of selfies together. We were constantly in each other's lives and that really formed a bond between us and until today, even if we're far apart from one another, that bond is still there.
We each have our insecurities and stories to tell. It's not like we had easy lives either, but we made it easy for each other. There were nights we'd talk about our troubles and we really listened to each other. Of course we hit really huge bumps in our friendship, but we made it through. Those were really bad bad bumps, but because they were such good friends (and people), hurting each other was the last thing in our minds. I know that because we always found ways to confront each other when it was truly needed. We most definitely make time for each other. We still do.
How awesome is it to have 2 friends who make sure your life is always as awesome as it should be?
