This is going to be cheesy as hell.
You know how some people say they have the best friends in the world? They’re all liars. Because it’s literally impossible to have better friends that I do. With university coming up, our paths will inevitably diverge, so this post is for them.
I feel blessed to have the friends I do. I’ve grown so much as a result of our shared experiences. After my family, they’ve played the biggest role in shaping who I am today. The only people I can thank more than my friends are my family, but I feel like my friends have come close to blurring the distinction between “friend” and “family.” My friends have been like an extended family for me, helping me in ways I would have never expected from them. Their advice and support over the past three years has been incredible, and I know nothing I do or say can credit them enough for that. I said high school was awesome for me, and so, so much of that is all thanks to my friends. I feel completely undeserving of all their (dare I say it) love and support, because they’re all better people than I. It’s amazing some of the experiences I’ve shared with them, and I’ll never forget them.
I know I often hold back from letting all my emotions out, but I hope I can make it clear how much you guys mean to me. So if any one of you end up reading this (I dunno the internet’s a big place, but it’s a small world right), I just want to say that I love you guys, and that I’m going to miss you so much in the years to come. I hope we all keep in touch for the rest of our lives. I wish you guys nothing but the best for everything that follows, and hope that you find great success in all things, especially friendships.
