    "You're So Far Away, Doesn't Anybody Stay In One Place Anymore?"

    My best friend lives so far away from me. It's strange though, because I think that's one of the reasons why we've managed to stay friends for so long. But I miss him incredibly and I get jealous a lot of his other friends who can see him, spend time with him. But this is how it...

    Lucky Me I Guess.

    My one friend, my only remaining flesh and blood friend in my life at the moment, only makes it around my parts once a year. He lives in another country, so at what point does the term "friend" become "close acquaintance"?

    From Other Countries

    I've always had an easier time making friends with exchange students than the people the next town over. I'm not sure why, but the farther away someone lived from me, the more likely I was going to be friends with her. I'm glad for the internet so I can keep in contact with...

    Closer

    If we were closer, we could share lots more together. We could go out and laugh every once in a while, yet distance makes it pretty challenging.
