The Unrelated Relative


That person you tell everything to. That person who isn't included in the "I won't tell a soul" category. That person you spend countless hours talking with, laughing with, dreaming with, sharing future goals with, and who doesn't judge (not always or not verbally anyway, haha). That person you can count on or depend on for anything at anytime, no matter what the situation is. That's the person known as your BFF.

My BFF is so special to me. We agree to disagree, we sometimes don't text for weeks and then one day we text each other like we just picked up where a conversation took place 5 minutes ago. We share most of the same likes. We plan each others' weddings and parties and make crazy pacts like we did when we were young. We judge people together and know how to hide a body better than the FBI knows how to find one (they don't call us partners in crime for no reason). We cherish every memory and moment and no matter how much time we spend together, it's never long enough!

I met my best friend when I was around 7 or 8. We had so many fights growing up, but we always managed to get past them (you know, like when she stole my animal crackers, lol). If something huge ever happens in my life she's usually the first one to know about it! If something unexpected or devastating happens in my life, I go to her because I know she'll be there for me and listen to me. I can always count on her! She never disappoints me and there is never a dull moment when I'm with her! We share each other's academic burdens and we share pins on pinterest with each other and rate outfits and maybe sometimes boys (haha). We love spending as much time together as possible, but even if we spend 10 hours in a day together, that's still not enough time!

I love my best friend and I know that if there were an emergency (and if money weren't a problem) we would cross oceans and planets for each other! We have a favorite movie that we always watch whenever we're together and we have a favorite breakfast and lunch/dinner dish we make when we're together. We dreamed of having an apartment together and traveling to Bora Bora, Santorini (Greece), and London someday, and eventually a world tour trip! We have big goals and we LOVE to dream big! We have high expectations, but deep down we know they aren't realistic but we stick to them anyway!

We hate spending long periods of time apart, but sometimes we don't have a choice. We love talking about nonsense, planning things that may never happen, and having the strangest, awkwardest, most serious, stupidest conversations ever! If people ever heard us, we'd get sent to a sanitarium or something (jk, but for real though). She's crazy, but she gets it from me, so I guess I'm the one to blame (haha). We have been through hard times and good times, through the thick and the thin and we still stick together like "two peas in a pod".

I love my best friend SO much and hate spending time apart from her! We fangirl hard core over celebrities we know we're never gonna meet and we judge each other sometimes, but it's never something too serious that we can't get past. She's an amazing friend and someone I can always depend on! I love her SO much and she will forever be my very bestest of friends! I can always count on her!

How does it work?
