It's going to be so weird not seeing them everyday..

Hey...I know it's hard to have to worry about losing friends after you leave school (I'm preparing to do that myself, actually) but it doesn't have to mean that you'll lose touch with all of them. If you talk to someone everyday that doesn't necessarily change just because you don't SEE them every day anymore. You can text and call each other (I think those are more personal than emails, but I guess it depends on your schedule) and make sure that you make suggestions of when you can hang out. Yes you may lose touch with a few people that you weren't that close to to begin with, but that's normal; if you really want to keep someone, and you make the effort, it's possible. Talk to who you're worried about, and make sure they know that you still want them in your life. There's nothing lame about missing your friends or other people you're used to seeing. <3 Good luck and take care! My PM box is always open if you want to talk.

When you say "never", I'll say "lie"
When you say "always", I'll say "true"
When you say "love", I'll say "you"
I'll say "you"

It gets better.

When you left school I bet you thought you'd keep in touch with this person and that person but things don't always work out like that and all the people you really wanted to keep in touch with, I'm sure you speak to them all the time.
As long as you make the effort with him I'm sure he'll make the effort with you, just tell him you really want you two to stay in contact and not just say it.
If you want to keep in touch that bad you will.
Good luck

Hi there,

I've had some friends go to a different high school than me, and we were really close in elementary school. I was worried we'd grow apart- and we did to an extent, but we all make the effort to see one another.

Plan times when you can hang out with them. Do a movie night every few weeks or find a hobby you all enjoy. Play some video games at someone's house. It's easier than you think to keep in touch, just email and phone when you can. IM is pretty good for keeping in contact as well.

Don't worry about it too much. Seeing someone everyday isn't what makes a friendship.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
