6 Things I Hear Repeatedly When My Friends Are In The Passenger Seat Of My Car

"Wow! You're a better driver than I thought!"

One of my favorite things to do is take my friends out for a spin in my car as we jam out to music. I thought it would be interesting if I documented some of the things they have told me while sitting in the passenger seat of my car.

1. “You drive best when you know where you are.”

Wow, well thanks! I hope that is a good thing. I know where I am in Lubbock 40% of the time so there is an approximate view of how skilled of a driver I am in this town. Wow, I just love making people feel safe in my car.

2. “Dang, it smells good in here!”

This is something I am very proud of. I’ve had my car since senior year of high school and all the times it has been through the smell of Starbucks, other friends' fast food, and my sweaty self after running seem almost non-existent when someone new gets into my car. This is great and hopefully it will last forever!

3. “Did you get your car washed today?”

On the outside, I would definitely say that my car is more clean. Believe it or not, it is actually easier to keep clean too. I don’t know about your car, but the inside of my car is the absolute hardest to keep clean. More specifically, the floor of my car. Man it is sure a hassle! Comment below if you face this same issue!

4. “Oh, you’re going this way?”

I take unique routes to get to my destination just for fun and to gain knowledge of my surroundings. My dad does this too, so I’ve learned to take it on too as I got older. Some people think it’s weird that I do that but guess who probably knows more than three routes to get to the grocery store? Me!

5. “Wow, you’re a better driver than I thought!”

For a reason I have not yet discovered, most of my friends stereotype me as a bad driver on the spot. Once they get in my car, most of those thoughts quickly change. I just smirk and keep driving when they come to this realization because it is quite entertaining to me. Shoutout to all of my friends for believing in me!

6. “You have an interesting taste in music.”

I do not know what the concept of driving in silence is. I HAVE to have my music going in the car at all times, it is my number one rule. As many of you know, I am obsessed with music. I listen to it almost constantly, whether it be on the way to class, while doing homework, and of course, driving. I guess I do have an interesting taste in music because more than five people have told me that in the car only.

Off the top of my head, these were the most common remarks that my friends have said to me. Some enjoy being in my car more than others and it definitely shows!

To My Long-Distance Best Friend, We Might Be 7,811 Miles Apart, But Our Friendship Only Gets Stronger

It breaks my heart that I cannot be around for your birthdays or to celebrate your achievements. But I'm so proud of every milestone you achieve. I am so proud of all your accomplishments and the person you are becoming.

To my best friend,

It has been 270 days since I last met you and 206 more days until I meet you again. People say that time flies by quickly, but these have been the most difficult days that seemed to drag on forever. Five years ago when you were sitting next to me on the first day of our sociology class, I had no idea we would end up being best friends. From sharing my mother's parathas during lunch breaks to the countless sleepovers, I will never forget all the memories we created throughout high school.

I vividly remember the day I told you I would be studying abroad. You were so happy and proud of me for pursuing my dreams but also upset that we wouldn't be seeing each other every now and then. I was worried if our friendship would even last. But we have spent almost two years away from each other and our friendship only seems to get stronger.

I'm so grateful to technology for allowing us to be in touch all the time. My day doesn't feel complete if I do not receive a text from you. I know we do not video call often because of how busy our schedules are (another reason being time zones suck and I cannot do the math), but always know that I am there for you. It breaks my heart that I cannot be around for your birthdays or to celebrate your achievements. But I'm so proud of every milestone you achieve. I am so proud of all your accomplishments and the person you are becoming.

We have both had some terrible friendship experiences in our past before we met each other that have completely broken our faith in friendships. But know that you can always count on me and that I will never leave your side. Know that I will always set an alarm early in the morning just to video call you. Know that I will always be there for you (even if I'm not physically present around you). Know that you will always be the first person I share everything with.

I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me. Thank you for encouraging me to make new friends at college. Thank you for always being there during my failures and reminding me that it's not the end of the world and that more opportunities will come my way. Thank you for being there during my successes and being my number one cheerleader. Thank you for always reminding me to love myself. You not only have a special place in my heart but also have a special place in my family. My mother and sister are not only glad that I have a best friend like you but also adore you so much. It is impossible to imagine a life without you.

I cannot wait for more butter chicken sleepover dates in December!

Lots of love,

Your best friend.
