So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.
Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.
We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.
With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.
And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.
And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?
I feel as people, we either really like people that share the same name as us or we completely hate them. But when you find somebody who you like and has the same name as you, what happens? You become best friends. And some pretty unique things come with sharing the same name as your best friend. So here are 12 things that happen when your best friend is also your name twin.
1. When you talk about them, people assume that you're talking in third person.
Listen if I was talking about myself I wouldn't use my name.
2. You have to use middle and last names in certain situations.
In band, cheerleading, school, work and around our families, we've been Sarah S, Sarah W, Sarah Maria..and so on.
3. You fight over who gets to be "Sarah 1" and "Sarah 2".
I'm slightly older so I feel like I'm the alpha and get the Sarah 1 privilege.
4. You get referred to as the "Sarahs."
Or whatever name you have.
5. You get to caption your pictures as "Sarah Squared."
Basic but necessary.
6. Their parents call you "their other daughter Sarah."
or their other son and whatever your name is lol.
7. People ask you if your only friends with people who have the same name as you.
No, but it's a bonus lol.
8. You get to confuse people when you introduce yourself.
The looks we've gotten when we say that we're both Sarah are great.
9. But you make it easier for other people to remember names.
I mean come on, there's only one name to remember.
10. They feel the struggle when somebody spells your name wrong.
Sarah with the h= the good Sarah, and Sarah without the h= the bad Sarah
11. You both look and respond when somebody says your name.
Uhhh we're going to need yo to be more specific.
