you are the best friend i could ever ask for. words can not describe how much i love you and care about you. you coming into my life was the best thing that ever happened to me.
growing up, we were kinda friends. we were in the same class in 3rd grade. i thought you were the coolest girl i’d ever know because you had just moved here from california. you had groovy clothes and blonde hair 😉 one time, we sat diagonal from each other at a table. i was so jealous of you because you were funny and beautiful and you had a cute laugh. i came to your birthday party and we took a picture, i love looking at that picture because it just reminds me how it is fate that we met. i remember one time when you and about 15 other girls came to my house for my 9th birthday. and then after everyone left you came back over so we could play on the slide leading down to my sand box =D oh, how i miss those days! the good old days!
we didn’t talk for 4 years after that….
in 7th grade, i got in a fight with my “group” of friends, so i started eating lunch with you, suze, and danica..what an odd group.. we were kinda awkward at first but you were still the exact same! beautiful, funny, and literally THE nicest girl i’d ever spoken to. and you still had the same cute laugh just like always =)
that summer me and banana asked you to come to the mall one day because we thought you were nice. i even remember what we all wore that day!!! hahaha we had such a good time! we were all just so carefree. even though we thought we were SOO cool and we really weren’t at all.. i wouldn’t give up anything for that summer with you and banana. that was the best summer i’ve ever had because we all grew so close. within a month of that trip to the mall, we were all absolutely inseparable. it’s just like it was meant to be. and we did everything together. it was amazing. i would give anything to go back to the times we had that summer. “we are all a little weird, and life’s a little weird,and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up and fall in a mutual weirdness and call it love.” this literally 100% explained our summer. WOW. it’s weird to think back to those times….
8th grade year was a trip….hahahaha god what a terrible time. it started out okay. we were at the top of the school and it felt good to be in charge. fall trimester was actually pretty good. hangin with max and bryce and all of them was fun =) but then we started getting sick of everything, especially school and things started gettin real bad at one point… i never really thought it would be good again. banana was with her boy and she was spending more and more time with him. which is totally fine because it made her happy and, especially then, that’s all that i wanted for all of us. but it was hard. you and i really stuck together through all that and it’s incredible and i love it =) during THE worst time of both of our lives, we were able to make it through. i’m not just saying this to say it, really, i wouldn’t have made it through without you. drugs became a problem and made things worse and you were right there with me throughout everything. somehow we got through that. and life started to feel somewhat okay again. our relationship got better and better every single day, even when it didn’t feel as if it could get any more amazing. i also think that when our 3rd musketeer moved here from tennessee, it really helped us out. because he was/is just such an easy going guy and always knows how to make us laugh… “there was some weird kid in my history class holding an ice pack on his balls!” hahahaha who would have guessed that 3 months later he would be our best friend! “life is one big road with lots of signs. so when you’re riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. flee from hate, mischief, and jealousy. don’t bury your thoughts, put your visions to reality. wake up and live!”
9th grade began. our first year of high school and we were doing it together. you made the varsity volleyball team AND you were a homecoming princess! i couldn’t believe that my little naive, oblivious, incredible kenners was growing up so fast! even though you are a year older than me and my “mama”, i was just so proud of you, you have no idea. as the year continued, you and i grew closer and closer. our relationship is so incredible. i have never been mad at you, we’ve never had a fight. i just don’t even know how to explain what an incredible connection we have. spring came and i made the varsity softball team and you were always there for me to complain to you about my coach. no matter what i just always know i can count on you ken. “to the world you may be one person. but to one person, you may be the world.” you my girl ken 😉
now you are in california. you only left yesterday, but i already miss you SO SOSOSOSO much. and you don’t even know when you’re coming back =( i love you and i miss you my sweet kenna
your best friend
