This summer has been interesting to say the least. It was different than what I had expected. I just don't see many people anymore, most of them are working now. The path that was mentioned many times in high school, the one that would lead you to the "real world" is finally showing itself. Everyone has gone their separate ways. Its hard to imagine that this time next year some people won't even be back for the summer. Their path lies in a new city completely. When I think about people going their separate ways, will I still be friends with them or will that go with them as well.
They say that one of the main reason we lost friends with someone is because of the lack of communication and because people change. It goes with the saying that your best friend this year could be just another stranger next year. Those people that we really do care about, do we actually show it or do we just hide it and expect them to know? I know for me I'm guilty of just hiding things and now really showing that I really care for my friends a lot. It gets harder to stay friends with someone the less contact you get with them.
Six years or so ago, I met this girl and through our ups and downs we manage to become friends throughout the rest of our high school career. This girl then went a different path than I did after high school. I wonder if I don't occasionally visit, would be remain friends or would we just acquaintances with each other. My freshman year was when I actually started to meet people that I could actually relate to. Freshman year was when I joined the swim team. That year I met these two guys that had very interesting characters to them. Even though they are different in their own ways, we had so much in common from the things we did to the sports that we played. Things were so much easier back then when all we had to do was go to school and pass our classes. Freshman year was the year where we created the "library group." These were the kids that before school hung out at the library. Not only was that significant but the kids from SACS made their way into public school. Freshman year was the year I felt the most "fit" in with a group of friends. Not only did I find guys that were pretty awesome, I met these two ladies that definitely had different personalities. I don't really know how I met this girl, that will always be a mystery, but this girl has this aura that makes me want to do better with myself like obeying road signs to not swearing as much. It weird but this girl made me promise that we would stay best friends even past college. She gave me hope when I was lost. This girl even to this day has helped me with so much and I never really knew how to thank her.
Its those friends that you find early on that help bring that best out of you that truly because your best friends... and yes you can have more than one best friend. Now that college hit, it feels weird that we slowly lose the connection that we had, slowly because but just another stranger in our lives. Even though they leave, you find new friends to "replace" them, to replace that part of yourself that you feel has been lost.
Just a thought till next time.

Not only has the friends that I've made changed, but also the setting at home. At the beginning of the year, a few of my friends made a friendly bet on just some things like would be life changing. Looking back on it now, it definitely changed. We were all wrong! Somethings we were glad we got wrong and others we wished would happened differently.
As one door closes another will soon open. Only time will tell what will come in the future.
hoping the best friends I made here are just as awesome as back home
p.s Sorry this blog may not be the greatest.

This post today comes from my phone. Here I am laying on the ground but that doesnt matter, I was able to see Amber. We decided to take a road trip out to see Jacob out at his college. The three of us today makes me miss the summer and how close we are. We were able to see jacob and connected right away like nothing has changed even though we were 10-11 hours away.
Today I can say that I has the most fun in a long time. It felt nice to be away from everything. Even though we didnt really so much it was nice. I think the thing I love most is just talking and catching up.
It makes you appreciate the friends that you have. In high school the friends that you made were taking for granted. Then those friends soon became your best friends. Even then it felt like things were taking for granted. It wasnt until college that I realized how much my close friends meant to me. Theses are the people that I want to stay friends with forever. While in high school we didnt have to try hard to communicate to each other, but now that im in college its a diffetent story. Now to stay friends we have to try a little bit and keep in touch with each other.
I feel like for the most part I have failed on that. Today it has made me realize that maybe I should try reaching out because eventually without contact =loss of friendships that matter.
Trying not to lose friends
