The Best About Best Friends

Good Essays
“Isipin mo na lang best friend mo ko.” This is the text message I received from her which started it all. These words gave me the privilege to call Mikee “bes” and have her as my one and true best friend.

Best friends are the best when it comes to being an inspiration for improving oneself for the better. This is what Mikee made me realize. Although we’ve just been best friends for quite a short time, she already influenced me with her unique attitudes and characteristics. She’s one of the main reasons of what I am now and possibly, if our friendship goes on, what I’ll be in the future.

Our small friendship started when she became my partner in our school’s Seniors Promenade. She’s the perfect partner for me since she is just my neighbor and I knew her somehow from my childhood years. Since I’m part of the cotillion, it was during the Christmas break when the dance practices started. I thought it’s my job to entertain her during the practices so I had a really hard time thinking of what possible topics to talk about. But during the first day of practice, I realized that all my efforts of thinking were wasted as she immediately made friends with other girls whom she met for the first time. I find her quite weird for saying “Hi” and “Hello” to each people she met during the practice. It might be because I’m the total opposite of her. I’m the usual introvert boy who don’t want to interact with other people so much. But as I stared at her during those dancing days and saw her happily surrounded with friends, I began to admire her and ask myself if I had the guts to imitate that kind of personality.

The practice days were done and the night of the prom came. I can say that our practices paid off because we were able to dance the cotillion with only a few mistakes. Then the open- stage dance part came and all of the people gathered in the center and danced. I was quite sure of myself that I would spend almost all of the night sitting in a chair. But

    I am very lucky to have your as my best friend. I can’t believe it been two years since we graduate from high school. I remember in high school when both of us were discussing which colleges we should apply. I really glad that we both choose to attend a community college instead of a four-year college. I know that we both went to different community colleges but we were still very close and had the same experience. I can’t believe that I am attending Iowa State next fall and of course I will miss…

    My parents were fighting and my mother yelled at me to grab my sister and run, so that’s what I did. With tears streaming down my face, me and my precious six year old sister ran down the street till we were far enough away to not be caught by mom and dad.

    A best friend is defined as the one friend who is closest to you. Often time’s best friends tend to drift apart and it leads to you to believe that your best friend might not be your best friend. From my own personal experiences I have found that facts such as: telling lies, secrets, jealously, lack of communication, trust issues, and outside factors lead to the ending of a friendship. For example if you begin to lie about things to me it’s apparent my friendship is meaningless to you. The closest person to you should be the most honest person to you knows matter how bad it hurts you; they’re supposed to be there to help you. As stated before there are many factors that can lead to you thinking your best friend might not be your best friend.…

    My first day on the bus, I met a very important person to me. She would soon become the closest friend I would ever have. We shared a name, the interest in video games, and the hobby of drawing. But, other than that, we were very different. She liked white milk and hated chocolate (a.k.a “tainted milk”). I was the opposite. I enjoyed the company of dogs, she was obsessed with cats. But, differences aside, we enjoyed sitting together during lunch and just doodling all over each other's agendas and notebooks. We never really had any classes together, aside from homeroom together.…

    My freshman year in high school, I decided to join Best Buddies. Best Buddies is a program where a high school student is paired with another student, who has an intellectual and developmental disability, in a one-to-one friendship. During my first year, I learned Best Buddies is not simply a club but a family. My second year of being a part of Best Buddies I began truly noticing a change in myself. Sophomore year I was paired with a girl one year younger than me named Carrie. She and I have become best friends and have now been buddies for the past three years. As I interacted with Carrie these past years, I began to realize disabilities do not hold people back, but that we hold ourselves back. Despite Carrie’s misfortune, she wears a smile…

    Each week I was filled with anticipation as I walked into the center. I enjoyed the tap part the most. There was excitement with the sound of tap dancing and a lot of girls’ voices. Everyone had their little black, shiny tap shoes on tapping their little shoes on the dance floor. The voices I listened for were Ms. Patty and Ms. Bobby. They were going to teach us how to tap dance. We learned about the different tap sounds. Toe, heel tap, step, and touch were some of the sounds with one step. Then there came the steps with two sounds like the ball heel and the shuffle. I was so excited that I was learning all these different steps. By the time we learned all these different moves the dance recital was around the…

    Have you ever wondered what the real essence of the saying "A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed" is? People talk about the true value of friendship actually without knowing what it stands for. True friendship is the one, in which the individuals do not have to maintain formalities with each other. Sharing true friendship is the situation, when the person you are talking about is counted as one among your family members, when the relation you share with him/her reaches a stage that even if you don't correspond for sometime, your friendship remains unscrathed. Best friends need not meet up often to make sure that the friendship remains constant.…
