Ladies and gentleman this is my best friend Ashley/Ashelt/AppleSmileyfaceTriangle and I love her and I really miss her.
You see I moved away from our Portland area town and back up to the Tacoma area I grew up in and she leaves for college today, which is a seven hour drive from where I now live. And I’m going back home on Tuesday to be there for a week and I won’t get to see my best friend or spend any time with her because she’ll already be in school. I’m very upset about this and I haven’t seen her in two weeks. Up until now we’ve seen each other every two weeks since I moved and now that won’t happen. I’m feeling the withdrawal symptoms already. She is the one person I found during my high school years that has the same band interests as me and the same TV show interests as me and the same actor obsessions.
We became friends when we met during freshmen orientation. We were in the same group and we were asked what we did that summer. They got to me and I said I spent the entire summer watching every episode of House like five times. And apparently that made Ashley pleased. She sent me non-verbal approval messages across the room. She and I were also in the same advisory period together that year. We talked a lot then. Sophomore year, we didn’t have any classes together or any common friends and so we didn’t really hang out. But junior year came about and we had AP Lang & Comp together. We became really good friends again. We listened to the same music and talked about Doctor Who and Sherlock and started to text again. We stayed really close all throughout junior and senior year. She’s what got me back on Tumblr after not really being on here much. And now we’re graduated. We spent the first month of summer almost inseparable. And then I moved, and we still talk every single day about everything and nothing. I absolutely adore her and I’m so happy she’s my best friend. She’s an incredible person and an incredible friend, and I’m so glad I know her. I swear that one day (in the not at all near future) she’ll be auntie Ashley to my kids. I love her to death even though she’s a psycho weirdo. I think that’s part of why I love her, actually. I love that she puts up with all of my shit and she helps me through tough times and she still loves me even though she’s seen my best and my worst sides.
