    Even More So Now

    None of my friends are exactly the "best" but they still mean the world to me. They're there for me when my family isn't and cheer me up, even when they're just trying to annoy me. They're like the family i feel I don't have. We're mostly there for each other even though we don't...

    Don't Really Call Them "best" Friends...

    ...because I don't rate friends. Friends "are" the best. "My friends are my family and my family are my friends"-quote from a T-shirt "Of a lover and a friend, the one who by definition loves you is called a friend"

    I have one of the best friends I could ever ask

    for. Trouble is, we communicate mainly over text message. I think it can be to easy to get the wrong idea or impression and miss communicate an idea or thought.

    The Family You Choose

    With me and my friends it's like we've created this sort of second family with ourselves. We can relate to each other much better than our actual families do and we get along a hell of a lot better. We really are like a family.
