Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!
Anyway, I've been meaning to write about long distance relationships for a long time. My experience with the difficulties of long distance relationships is slightly different since it's a long distance friendship with my best friend. Yasmine and I meet in high school, she was a junior and I was a senior and our similar interests brought us together. Something that I love about our friendship is how we became closer once she moved out of state to attend Arizona State University while I stayed at our hometown San Diego, CA. I would have never imagined that we could keep such an amazing friendship through the distance. I can't say that everything has been perfect and that we've never faced any difficulties along the way because we have. There's days where we are able to FaceTime for hours! We might be able to text each other nonstop for an hour! Other times we don't speak for days and all we do is tag each other is memes. Sometimes our schedules are so crazy and we can't seem to find a gap where we can just talk for 5 minutes.
Recently, Yasmine was able to come back home for a couple of weeks for spring break and I was so annoyed with my personal circumstances. It was a constant conflict of knowing that I was busy with midterms and work, and also wanting to just spend time with her. It was difficult because I knew that I had responsibilities to attend, but a part of me just wanted to do fun and stupid things with my best friend. We only got to spend an afternoon together and I was reminded of how lucky and blessed I am to have her in my life. There's always different things going on in our lives and I wish that we could keep up! The thing is, every time we hang out is like we were never apart in the first place. We're learning to make time for each other and make our friendship a priority since it is. We have a FaceTime date tonight and I'm super excited to see what amazing things she's up to in Arizona. Make time for those friendships because they're worth it. Take care of your top people. Don't loose vision of how important relationships are in your life.
