What is a 'Best Friend'?

I'm sure many of you have heard of, or used the term 'Best Friend'. What I'm here to clarify is, what are best friends? Aren't they just friends that are super close to you? Can you only have one best friend? Is that best friend the only person that you should share secrets and gossip with?


Over my years of having 'best friends', i realised something. Best friends change, so do you and i. I had a best friend once, in primary school. We were so young back then, we knew nothing. At that age, it was all about our favourite TV shows, our hobbies, and 'surface level' kinda stuff. Being in a convent school with strict measures also did not help. I used to think we knew a lot about each other, but i guess not.
She knew me as that ridiculous train-wreck, not that I'm not, i still am. Though we never got very attached in the emotional deep side. I'll admit, i can become very 'deep', i like to give and receive advice, I'm really fond of listening to other people's personal problems and trying to solve them. As she was some hardcore little lady that actually never really had an interest in listening to people, i found it really hard to talk to people about my problems. Especially since she's one of those that would tell you things like "Step up and be a man, won't you?" (Or in my case, a 'woman')


So primary school didn't go very well for me, but when secondary school started, there was lots of drama. And i met some really great friends. Back on topic-Best friend. That one person that i can talk to about my problems and enjoys ranting about some really stupid things with me. The only flower in my life that is able to care for me, joke about things that even the littlest of people would joke about. That person will always have a place in my heart, and can never ever be replaced.


Sometimes i wonder how do you even get closer to someone. When they already have someone else in a house, you can't just move in without telling the other person right?

This was weird.
This is a weird blogpost that i wrote just to kill time.
I shall now go back to playing I Love Pasta.
Did you know, sometimes when i'm too lazy to hang my clothes up, i wear all of it as an outerwear?

2017

Two years of inconsistent blogging. I love blogging, I truly do. There's something about putting feelings and emotions into sentences that really appeal to me. Forgive me, in advance. I won't be blogging very much in the next few months, maybe years, probably, until I have time to sit down and just let it all out. I'm not saying that i'm quitting, but I merely do not have the time for it and it isn't one of my priorities at the moment. I'm working on myself, through academics, art, my social life(?). If it's necessary for you to be updated on how i'm doing, Twitter's the way to go. Everything's there.

Ugh, anyone else sensing that tension and disconnection between you and I? Gosh, I need to "up" my mood a little. HOW'S IT GOING? Life's been great for ya? It's 2017 and I'll be 17 this year. It's freaky how I'm almost considered a young adult when I barely feel like a teenager. I guess that's the scary part of…

Self-Worth

She showed me the importance of individuality. How okay it is to just stick out at certain edges or corners or curves that maybe others can't appreciate. That it's perfectly fine to be bursting with energy that people outright assume it as immaturity, or to have such strong emotions that overflow and fill cracks and openings all around, because that is what makes us individuals. 

update

Pretty late. I am really late. I haven't blogged in such a long time that honestly, it doesn't cross my mind often. This'll be just a short update, i guess.

The usual, school's been stressful. Art, other subjects and stuff. I am thankful that i'm able to handle the stress in a positive manner, most of the time. My health hasn't been really good lately. My knees were awful, they kept hurting and cracking and i had to see a doctor-two, actually. One knee was injured due to an old injury and the other was misaligned with the rest of my leg. Troubling, huh? That was during the first two months of 2017. About a month later, my throat got inflamed, i had a bad throat ulcer infection and it was so difficult to even swallow saliva. Lymph nodes enlarged a whole lot, too. Next month, eye stye. Not so much of a problem, but my lower eyelid grew a stye and the upper lid swelled. Healed afterwards, but currently I have another swollen eyelid. Gross. Kinda makes it hard to o…
