If it isn't clear, I love having friends.


January 3, 2019


Friends have shaped me.
No matter if I like it or not. 
Some have left me changed for the better
While others I question why I was friends with them at all.

I remember in kindergarten,
I made friends so fast.
I spelled friends with the "e" before the "i".
Most of my friends were girls.
We believed we had to do everything together
And boys were gross.
Ah, kindergarten was nice.

First grade,
The kids were so much fun.
We hated homework (I secretly loved it)
And if the teacher gave us candy
Everything was going to be all right. 
Boys weren't as gross
But annoying.

Second grade,
I actually forgot.
I think I was home schooled. 

Third grade,
I was introduced to the term "mean girl".
I tried to make friends with almost everyone
That didn't work out.
I made friends with the funnest girls ever.
We would make flower crowns 
And play tag.
I had guy friends but I swear most of them were so cute.

Fourth grade,
Was when I got bullied
So I had trouble trusting people,
But the kids I did always knew 
How to make me laugh.
We weren't too grown for the play ground
Which was nice.
Life seemed perfect at times.
Some of us wanted a phone 
And to date
But at the same time,
We wanted to stay young forever.

Fifth grade,
This is were the drama began.
I think all the girls had a crush on this one boy in my class.
Boy girl friendships were seen
But usually they ended liking each other.
I had one friend who was a big talker and loud
While the other was so quiet. 
It was funny that we were to some people. 
I remember always asking to eat my friend's food that they didn't want.
Good times. 

Sixth grade,
We had reached a new stage in our lives. 
We felt grown up
But small too.
I had this one group of friends: one Jewish boy, five girls, and me.
We were like a family.
If we hurt each others feelings
Forgiveness came just as fast.
Popularity was't that big of a deal
Which was nice.
Musicallies (I spelled that wrong) were so popular.

Seventh grade through eight grade,
I was home schooled
And didn't have a lot of friends.
I was quiet,
listening to Twenty One Pilots a lot,
And writing too much. 

Ninth grade,
I have reached a new stage in my education.
All my friends are so different but we all belong together. 
We are all either depressed,
Have a nose ring (which I have),
Or have dyed hair.
All my friends are so supportive of me.
They add happiness in my life,
introduce me to new music,
And can never be replaced. 

I can't imagine my life without friends.
If I did my life would not be the same...
