|I Never Forget Friends

To All My Friends,|
If your not in for a warm hearted, touchy, and meaningful story about my life than don't read, but if I don't give some embarassing info. about myself than you won't understand the warm, touchy feeling about friends I'm about to talk about.
When I was in third grade, I was a major tomboy. I wasn't the kind of girl to sit down and play with barbies. I wanted to go outside and play baseball with all the boys (I also think I was just trying to get my Dad's attention at the time. If he didn't want me as a girl then I'd be the boy he never had. However, that didn't work either as we all know). To make a long story short, I was always outside in my neighbor hood playing with the kids. There were really no kids my age on the street, so I played with the younger kids (that's where my maturity level was at anysway).
One day when I was playing I met this little red head boy named **** a.k.a. Scotty. I aked him if he wanted to play with us and he went inside because he was sooo shy. He is the most adorable boy I'd ever met, and he became my best friend. That was around third grade and he was in Kindergarden. Back then, friends were REALLY IMPORTANT to me because I had none. Third grade was when I hit my geek years, BIG TIME.
I also had these friends that lived across the street from my Dad's house. They were brothers and they were really cool to hand out with, however, I had a better connection with the younger one, who was around Scotty's age.
One day I was at my Dad's house and saw the boys playing outside. I was so bored out of my mind that I was so relieved that they were home. I got dressed and walked across the street. I saw they had a friend over. Lord and behold it was my best friend, Scotty. From then on the younger brother and I were really close whenever I was at my Dad's house (which was once in a blue moon).
Then my worlds came crashing down, when in my 6th grade year, Scotty told me he was moving to Austin. That was hard!!! He was my only friend that I had, the only one I could count on! Then he had to move, which at that age, seemed like countries away. I got his phone # but it's really hard to hold a long distance friend ship when your that age.
The next week after Scotty moved away, I went to my Dad's house and the brothers were telling me they were moving away too. I couldn't believe it! Why was everybody who meant everything to me just moving away. I said good bye and then cryed forever. I never got their phone #, so it was impossible to keep in contact with them! After that I promised to never let one of my friend ships die again, and I've done a pretty good job on keeping my word.
Tonight, I hung out with one of my friends that I hadn't seen in while. We went to the bowling alley, just to hang out and talk, and EVERYBODY from my high school (which I just graduated from) was there. Friends that I hadn't seen since I started summer school last summer. It was a nice surprise to see everybody, and then I see the older brother that lived across the street from my Dads.
I was a lot more excited about seeing him than I let on. After all, everybody knows how guys are these days. They don't really show their emotions because they have to be all buff, or what ever they call it. Anyhow, I asked him where his little brother was and he said somewhere (typical guy answer).
Right when I was leaving the bowling alley I saw the older brother and younger brother walk out together. I called the younger brother's name and he just kind of looked at me. I asked if he remembered me and he said no. Right when I said my name the younger brother got soooo excited. It was soo cute. He is the most adorable boy I think I've ever seen. When I was younger I had small crush on him and I don't want to sound like a child molester, but I still do. However, I think it's more of a I'll always love you forever, friend ship thing (if you know what I mean). The younger brother and I talked about Scotty, what he was doing in high school, and what I did. The older brother had to finally break us up because they really had to get home. So this time we exchanged phone #'s and I will call him!
They made me realize at a very young age, how important friend ship was. That is why I got a LJ to begin with. I wanted to keep in contact with all my friends even though they're every where. To all those who have been with me through high school and are still with me now, thank you for being there for me. All my friends are the most important things to me and I never want to loose any of you no matter how far we are apart. I love you all.
I know. It's an all sensitive LJ but what do you expect from someone who crys at rated G movies. Come on now.
PS. I miss you so much Kinyin. And I'll miss you so much when you go away, Buttons. Don't EVER loose contact with me.
