One of the most important friendships I’ve ever had literally started because myself and my interweb friend circle were using bro in sentences way too many times. To this day, I’m not sure if they were ironically used or not.
ANYWAY. It all started because of that ridiculous thing, and it snowballed into a wonderful friendship that regularly cried over attractive boys n girls n sometimes animals and cursed the entire existence of the state of Pennsylvania. We spent what seemed to be half of our friendship wishing that we could roadtrip and meet in real life, and that happened this past summer. (I never actually blogged about it I don’t think???? but we vomited all over twitter so.) It was so strange but felt like it was just meant to be, in a platonic way. Like, it was wicked comfortable to just hang out at a table with pizza. (And my dad. and Ashton.)
There was a time where we made paper versions of each other and I believe we still have them. I’m so happy for this friendship and am so very glad an obnoxious fifteen year old Alyssa made such a wonderful friend that nineteen year old Alyssa is so happy to still have.
