    I was being trained for a job

    and my first day there, my coworker got me something to eat. She'd stolen something for herself and something for me from the nurses' lounge. That made me laugh. She got my jokes, too, and she actually sought me out to talk to me even when we worked in different areas. When I...

    Had super fun with these type of friendships.

    I mean you don't know anything at all about these people. Then they turned up. Boom! You just had fun. You can just laugh together with anything. Party together like as if they were long time friends.

    One of the best, in my opinion,

    and most unexpected thing you can do is help someone you have a problem with when they need a helping hand. It shakes things up and can even settle differences and sprout an unlikely, lifelong friendship. I think the outcome is only always beneficial to you. Expect the...
