Welcome to my life.
Last night some of my friends from school and I thought it was free ice cream day at Haagen Dazs, and when we found out we got the date wrong (it's May 10th if you want to go!) we were super disappointed, but went to starbucks happy hour instead (this week drinks were half hour from I think 4-5). Then we went to Ginger's apartment, and I had the best time ever. We just had fun and watched cartoons like we were little kids and didn't even worry about getting embarrassed. Then we went on her terrace and made music videos that were so much fun. It was a rainy day, but Chloe insisted on playing the ukulele outside;)
We had dinner and laughed so much, my stomach hurt. The way we all hung out last night, was the hangouts I wished for when I was in middle school; no drama, just fun. My friends in middle school weren't very good friends at all, and I never really had a blast spending time with them, for they just stayed on their phones and FaceTimed other people/gossiped about them (super rude). I'm not used to having school friends who actually make me feel better about myself instead of putting me down. It's such a nice change to have friends who make you enjoy school and that also actually act their age.
This was all Dechen's idea!!!! (Middle)
I've also learned that you shouldn't be partial to just your group of friends. Just this year, I started realizing that last year there were so many more people I had things in common with, who I've only now have gotten to know. (Shoutout to the Booty Toes & Ming😙). Those are the people I wish I would have hung out with in middle school, not the people I thought were "cool". Middle school also made me realize that you should never feel like you're stuck with a group of friends; you can always make new ones no matter how late in the game you are. It's also never too late to reconnect with old friends down the road, because even if you ended on a bad note, maturity changes people.
I am figuring out this whole friend thing as I go along, but right now I think I am finally doing okay.💛
