"It’s interesting to look back at old friendships and think of how you’ve all grown, but it’s sad to think of how you’ve grown apart. What happened to the sleepovers and longer-than-necessary talks on the phone? What happened to never being apart and the last part of “best friends forever”? I miss the certainty that I would never feel alone. All I can do is look forward to the places I’m going to see, the people I will meet, and all the new friendships ahead of me."
