Day 29. The Person You Want to Tell Everything to, But Too Afraid to
I wish I could tell all my friends everything, but it just doesn’t work that way. My different friends know different things, I just go to certain people when I need to talk about a certain subject. It all works out. I’m very protective over information and myself.
I’ve been putting this off for a while only to think of this specific ‘day’ of the challenge further. I’d have to say a handful of my friends have definitely changed my life but none have yet to change my life completely or hold that much of an impact. In the end, I’m still the one who chooses for myself and watches out for what I do; I have a strong conscience that knows what’s good, what’s not, what I like, if I should do something, etc. Every time I meet someone new and get closer to them, that’s when I feel that they’d be changing my life just a little bit. Every time I drift away from someone, I feel like my life has also changed due to my loss. Some friends that have impacted me are :
Frankie Janiec - She was my childhood best friend. We went to shows together and were little punks throughout our later elementary days. We drifted apart when she moved to Utah.
Stacey Baeg - childhood bestfriends who would do everything together. We swam, we played dress up, went shopping, taught ourselves how to cook together, taught ourselves how to put make up on, took pictures together, seriously everything. Drifted apart when she moved away and we both changed schools. Re-uniting this summer.
Jane Kang - Known her since the 6th grade, we were and still are so different despite the fact that we get along with each other so well. She’s always been my kick back buddy. We’ve seen each other at our worst times, seen each other cry, went to vacations together, created our own recipe together, had photoshoots, dance when we’re bored to youtube videos, etc. We don’t need entertainment or money with a mall to have fun. I haven’t drifted away from her and I don’t think I ever will. Hopefully. Jane’s always there.
Sophie Pendleton - Met her in the 7th grade, started bonding in 9th because I moved to LA and we now took the same bus route home from school. She’s just the most awkward, loud, funny, free spirited, carefree, attentive, inclusive, oddball you’ll ever meet. We can go anywhere and we’ll have fun. I personally enjoy our one on one time the most, though. Haven’t drifted away yet, only feels like it because she’s been gone all summer.
Lizzy Tartikoff - Met her in 8th grade, the new kid at school. Straight up, I was so interested in getting to know her. I was pretty much her first friend when she came to our school. Great artist, same taste in music, same mindset. She’s crazy, loud, fun, unique, amazing, unpredictable. No drifting away yet.
Mica Burton - Known her since 7th, bonded in 9th over twilight - wow. Got her into anime and all things asian. She took me to meet the Jonas Brothers for their movie premiere, ahahaha. We can talk about anything. we’re so similar its insane, I love her so much. have not drifted away and WON’T.
Jasmin Kim - Started hanging out summer of 9th grade. We love jrock and anime - anyone can bond over that, I swear. We would eat like pigs until 2 am, watch pokemon, bake cupcakes, go to little tokyo, ktown, korean taxis, eat some more, watch movies together, pretty much do everything together. I feel like we may be on the verge of drifting apart, maybe cause she’s at camp.
Heidi Nguyen - We met through an awkward situation that I’d rather not talk about. I really don’t even need to talk about Heidi, she’s like the only one I talk about, hahhaa. My first viet friend, talk about everything, we enjoy the same things(kdrama,music,fashion,food,stuff), are very similar, and she’s always here to talk and I love her. Maybe we have drifted a little , only because the distance in between us is so far.
Shawn Adams - My soul brothah. Both interested in Photography and fashion. We’re the perfect art friends. We don’t talk as much as we used to, only because of our time difference. Shawn will be the same when we’re together, though. I’ll still love him no matter what. Drifting here, but will re-unite soon.
Aimee Misaki - My homegurl. We talk boys, we go everywhere together, we’re different but the same. My japanese companion. Tokyo in 5 days, hell no drifting apart going on up in hurrr.
Wow this is getting long. All these people make up my life I am living currently. Although I have some other very good friends I have not listed (and will list now: lars, nick, jack, chrissy, aaron, hope, caroline, yumi, yvonne, jc, lexy, monica) , I feel as though I haven’t experienced much with them compared to the people I’ve listed above. The listed above people I’ve seen day to day back to back, talked with til the sun rose, took baths with some of them, etc. I love all these people <3
