Let’s begin by just saying, keeping in touch with friends from high school is tough. I have managed to keep in touch with only two and that was hard enough as is. After a year of college under my belt, you would think I have it down to a system of how to communicate; but guess what, it is still a challenge.
Everyone has had that one person in their life that they instantly “click” with. The one individual that understands you to the tee. Someone that doesn’t judge you on how weird you are but rather joins you to be precisely as weird, if not weirder.
Having my best friend be a senior in high school while I was just starting my freshman year in college was rough. It was easier because I knew how the high school schedules worked and I knew when she would respond. She understood when I didn’t respond in a timely manner because I was making new friends. Nevertheless, I hadn’t forgotten about her and she knew I wouldn’t. Even if it took me days to respond because I forgot, she understood. Sure it probably irritated her but I tried to never forget — I forgot all the time.
