I know most of you probably believed me when I said Taylor Swift was my best friend a few days ago…but here’s the thing we’re close but I actually have a friend I like better (shhh!!! Don’t tell Taylor, it’s nothing personal). Have you ever met someone and just instantly had the feeling that that person was meant to be in your life forever? Like you’ve met another version of yourself, a part you never even knew was missing before? Well that’s exactly how I felt when I met Nicole. You’ve probably seen her around my blog, she’s the gorgeous red head with sparkling blue eyes. I talk about her non stop because I’m obsessed with her in every way and I can never get enough of her perfect freckled face (and yes I talk about her like this in real life too).
We first met at cheer tryouts in high school. All afternoon I was spying on her (if you’ve read my blog before you probably already know that stalking is kind of my trademark way of making friends, boyfriends, whatever, it works for me). I thought she was probably the most adorable person on the entire planet and instantly wanted to befriend her. Naturally I thought the best way to accomplish this goal was by talking to her so I told her I’d been lusting after her freckles the entire day. When that didn’t creep her out at all we became best friends and eventually even in the same stunt group with our other perfect little best friend April.
In cheer we were sort of the weirdos that everyone else ignored because we pretended we were dragon sisters when we were stunting and imagined we were in the magical realm on lunch breaks or eskimo kissed each other at every possible moment but for some strange reason that didn’t even matter.
Throughout the rest of my years in high school she remained one of my best friends and a huge support system for me anytime I ever encountered a problem no matter how big or small (she really is the most genuinely kind person you will ever meet ask anyone that knows her). I was worried that when I went off to college our friendship would fade but in fact it grew stronger than ever! She visited me in Pullman despite the snowy pass and horrendously long drive and I visited her in Seattle until finally I decided to transfer to a school in Seattle as well (the long distance was just becoming unbearable).
And now we’re reunited in Seattle and together again which is great because it saves a lot of gas and I don’t even have to text her nonstop everyday (but okay…sometimes I still do). We have so many parallels in our lives at all times, the same boyfriend issues, family issues, narcism issues, breakups, over enthusiasm, a love for dancing, anxiety, social outcast syndrome, sorority drama, etc., etc. And although I don’t see this pretty little peach as much as I would like to (aka every moment of everyday) my love for her is unwavering (sorry if I’m getting to intimate here). Her mom actually thought we were lesbians for a little while there…a pretty hilarious misinterpretation and funny story, for another time. And I’ve never met anyone nearly as narcissistic as her (except myself) in the best way of course or anyone else that enjoys rolling down grassy hills cartwheeling or matching/being twins nearly as much as Nicole (did I mention that we once planned to coordinate our underwear everyday? Our friendship was obviously fate).
Best friends are the best right? What is your best friend like and why do you love him/her? I love hearing cute bestie stories more than I like hearing fairytale love stories so feel free to share!
P.S. As the title implies, if I had to choose between Nicole and the sun, I really would choose Nicole and that says something because I’m from Seattle and I practically worship the sun because I only see it a handful of times every year. But I really hope I don’t have to choose because this rain is seriously starting to depress me.
