I am so grateful that we moved every 3 years growing up. It's made me more adaptable and independent, given me more stories, made the entire state of California feel like 'home' instead of one small town and made me sometimes feel like I ended up with 20x more friends. Anywhere I want to go in California, I have somewhere to stay. But the downside of moving so often is that I don't have that classic best-friend-since-second-grade-through-high-school. So I've been wondering about who I'll have standing up there with me someday (not to start rumors, I'm definitely not engaged).
Not that I don't have amazing friends... I have people I hold very dear to me but they're often the ones that I end up going a year without talking to because when you move a lot, it's hard to maintain friendships with people that require daily talks. But I kinda want that... I don't have someone I call regularly. Like when I cut my hair on Saturday, I was wishing for a best friend to come over and say, "Do it!"
There's a part of me that feels like I'm too old to make a new best friend. Like everyone who is cool already has a best friend.
So tell me, did you meet your best friend 'later in life'?
P.S. Because what's a post without pictures, here's one of me and a childhood friend, Fifi!
