Making friends isn’t something that comes easily to me. I know people who can be best friends with someone after a week. I’m not like that. I take my time to get to know the person, to see if they are worth while, to figure out if I like the way that they treat people. What brings this up is that today my friend, Janelle, and I presented about our time at Hoosier Girls State or HGS. I’m sad to say that we stretched the truth when we said that we would keep the friends that we made for the rest of our lives. In all reality, I rarely speak to my roommates. It’s not that I don’t like them, it’s more that I don’t know what to say. It’s hard to solidify a relationship through texting. There are girls there that have their HGS buddies in their weddings. I may not have been aiming for a maid of honor, but I do miss them and wish that I would have kept better touch right after camp.
I guess I’m lucky that I have 4 best friends. Since we’ve all been friend throughout high school, staying in touch through college shouldn’t be hard. Janelle and I were pondering the possibility of being without our procrastination buddy. We partner up in almost everything and do it at the last minute every time. It’s just how we roll. The idea of not having her to balance me out is scary. Hopefully we will be near each other during college but if not, we will survive and make good use of Skype!
