Making Friends in the Real World

California is the perfect place for my career to prosper. I moved out here one month after graduation and landed a pretty sweet job. It’s been such a wonderful experience. The weather is lovely. I live in an area that reminds me of my home state. My work environment is pretty ideal.

I’m Indecisive.

I’m indecisive. Because last time, I told myself I needed a break. Last time, I told myself that I could do it on my own. That I was fine alone and that I didn’t need anyone For anything. And then he came along and showed me why I was lying to myself. He came along and gave me companionship. He gave me love He gave me friendship and warmth and bliss. But he also gave me disappointment and insecurities and a feeling of self doubt. He was a rose. Roses have thorns. And I got cut trying to move the roses into the vase by my bedside table. My fingers started bleeding and the pain did not fade. So here we are. One question, and only my answer. I’m afraid. ? I’m exhausted. I’m not sure. Sure, I like plenty of flowers and plenty of flowers would love to sit in the vase beside my bed. But my trauma comes from pain and I’m just starting to see…

This cheesy little flick is one not to miss. The friendship between two life-long girlfriends (Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore) is put to the test when one starts a family and the other falls ill. The incredibly cheesy opening sequence didn’t set high hopes for me as we skimmed through the early years of Jess and Milly’s friendship.

This completely changed the tone of the film and made for an easygoing, heartfelt and well acted drama. Collette and Barrymore were a great pairing. The subject matter was dealt with very well.

To you, I love you in the most platonic way possible. You’re my best friend. You have grown to be like a sister. Not that I need any more of those, but you have. I’ve never had a friendship this strong that wasn’t bound by blood. I know I’ve never truly been in a relationship, but I believe this is how people in relationships feel. I constantly worry about losing you. Not because I think you would willingly choose to abandon our friendship, but because the people who enter my life have a tendency to come and go. I think about what will happen when we graduate from college, and we head our separate ways. It makes me incredibly sad, and I know I shouldn’t be, because I have no idea what will happen. We could make long distance friendship our bitch, ya know? But we could also get so busy with our new lives and our new jobs and our new friends that we stay in contact less and less.…
