My Childhood Friend

The earliest childhood friend I remember was my classmate, Deanna Richards. We have known each other since we were in the third grade. Her parents and my parents were friends, and her two older brothers and my two older sisters were friends. We were all good friends. In my opinion, Deanna and I were more like sisters than friends. Growing up, Deanna was always such a pretty girl with her medium brown Farah Fawcett hairstyle, big brown water chestnut eyes, long, thick dark brown eyelashes, and her famous ski-slope nose. Her sense of humor, the ability to make me laugh, and her warm and caring disposition made her inner-self just as beautiful. Even though we lived about a mile away from each other, during the summer time we were inseparable. Our day would start off doing with each of us doing our daily housework. This doesn’t mean that is how it always worked out. But, normally we did do our work first. Every day after I finished my chores, I would ride my bike to Deanna’s house. We would then walk to the nearby college in our town. The college had a recreation program for the kids during the summer months. Our normal routine at the college would start off with walking around the track field: about two or three laps, then we would run about two or three miles around the track. Afterwards, we would go inside and start doing warm-up exercises, following our gymnastics. We weren’t all that good at gymnastics, but we sure thought we were. Preceding our extensive work-out we would head to the Olympic size pool practicing our freestyle, breaststrokes, butterfly stroke, and last but not least our diving techniques. After our long extensive day of exercise we would go to the sauna room and relax for a while. Finally, before we went home, we used the college’s shower room facility and took a nice long hot shower. We had to look refreshed and cleaned, just in case we ran into

    My childhood best friend and her family hosted a foreign exchange student when we were in middle school. He was a couple years older than us but I got to know him pretty well in the time he spent studying in America. One of the things that I remember the most about him being “culturally” different was his view of importance of eating as a family at least twice a day. I remember after he moved in, my best friend’s family started to eat breakfast together and either lunch or dinner together as well…

    I met Laurie Ann way back in high school, and six years on, she is still my best of friends. The first day we met, she walked up to me and introduced herself. It felt way weird shaking her hand like grownups do and declaring my name to her after the hand shake. "Stacie Oliker?" "Pretty name." she remarked instantly. This close friendship allowed me to come to know and experience a level of self disclosure like no other. With her I was and still am myself. Our high school friendship has unfolded over…
