(From left to right: Me, Mariah, Gabby)
So, one of my best friends, Gabby (sociopath-in-stilettos), is moving to back to Minnesota on Sunday. And I think I should write a post about how much I’m gonna miss her.
When I met Gabby, it was in 9th grade, 2013. We shared English and World History. Now, in English, we really didn’t talk to each other, but in World History, we became friends, as we were both the smartest in our class. We bonded over similar fandoms and likes, mainly, at the time, the Mortal Instruments and Twilight (I know, weird, but true).
Gabby quickly became one of my best friends in the high school. We kept up with each other academically and socially, and it’s hard to find someone who can do that in that god awful high school we were at.
Eventually, Gabby invited me on a trip with her to New York City to go to the midnight signing and release party of City of Heavenly Fire. And we went and killed it. We shopped so much, stood in lines for hours, and got lost on more than one occasion. It was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken, and it was only for three days.
In tenth grade, me, Gabby, and our crazy friend Mariah (nerd-fighter-squad, who will be getting her own post) came together and decided to call ourselves the Tremendous Trio. And we were really freaking tremendous, if I do say so myself. We did everything, from shopping, to clubs, to classes, to movies, ranging from the Fault in Our Stars cry-fests to Project Almanac stab-our-eyes-out-fests to Imitation Game feel-fests.
But, Gabby, I’m really gonna miss you. You were, like, everything I could’ve asked for in a friend, and I hope I get to see you in Durham sometime.
Guys, it was THIS GIRL WHO GOT ME INTO SHERLOCK. THIS IS HER!!
The last time I ever got to see her was last week, when we went to see Paper Towns together. I don’t think Gabby enjoyed the movie that much (the ending pissed her off), but it was still great to spend one last time with her.
So, here’s to you Gabby! Love you, girl! I’m gonna miss the hell out of you, so you better text me often! When you get a boyfriend or a girlfriend, you better tell me so that I can interrogate them for you! And you BETTER Skype me when the Sherlock Special comes out!
