"It takes a long time to grow an old friend."

Once upon a time you have a friend that will be with you for the rest of your life. You've been through everything together....the good times and the bad, highschool, university and the ackward times in between and after. Friends that you don't see for months, years even, and when you get back together it's like no time has passed (but you do have a whole lot more to talk about!).

These are the friends that you must really cherish. The ones that know all your stories, the ones that know your phone number off by heart, the people that can drive to your house on autopilot and the ones that know what you want from Tim Hortons.

You are going to need people like this in your life. People that feel like home when you hug them. They will be there for you when you feel so alone and confused about who you are and they will remind you of your sparkle. When you are together you can see yourself reflected in their eyes, the you that they love and will always love, the you that they met on the first days of highschool when you were scared and ackward (and so were they).

I am so fortune to have a handful of friends that I have had since highschool that I treasure and adore. Find yourself some and hold on tight.

"It's the friends that you can call at 4 AM that matter." ~Marlene Dietrich
