/Dear Best Friend (Jenna),
I miss you. It's really lame that we have to be apart now because of college, since we've been inseparable this past year. I'm missing our crazy adventures, like concerts in Philly, going to the zoo, reenacting the last supper at Cold Stone, and the aquarium. I miss singing on the top of our lungs in your car to The Front Bottoms and Modern Baseball.
But we have to have our own adventures now, until we can be reunited again. I think going our separate ways for now might be a good thing, because we can figure out who we are and then come back together and tell each other all about it. We're going to grow so much these next four years, and even though we're not together all the time, I think we'll still grow together. I'm gonna text you when important things happen, and when little things happen. I'll still be here to FaceTime you when you need me. I'll stay up as long as you need me to and we can talk about friends, relationships, and our problems.
Nothing is going to change the fact that you're my best friend, my very first true best friend. I've never had someone that I felt completely myself around, someone who would take me on crazy adventures and listen to me rant about everything and anything. No one is ever going to replace you, that's for sure. There's no one quite like you who gets me.
I knew that the last night before we had to say goodbye because we both left for college, and we both cried because we shared so much of ourselves with each other. It's hard to have to start over and make new friends because you're so used to having that one person who just understands you. But like I said, no matter how many new friends I make, you're always going to be my partner in crime. My number one.
Lately as I experience new adventures and new things, I've been thinking "I wish my best friend was here," but I know we're still going to have our own adventures in the future. We've got winter, spring, and summer breaks. I know it'll be hard in between those breaks, but we'll survive. As long as I know you're safe and happy, we'll be okay until then.
So let's just think of this as a time to better ourselves so we can be better people and better friends. It's sad to be apart but I know you're there for me, and I'm always there for you. Have fun while we're apart, and I know you are, but not too much fun. Just remember that I love you and be safe. I can't wait to see you.
(Sorry this was so emotional but you know how I am.)
Your Best Friend Olivia
