*deletes whole introduction because it was from over two months ago* Anyhow, this is part two of my post…duology? in which I rant about why I’m thankful for my friends and why y’all should be thankful for yours too.
Besides a whole lot of brothers and a whole lot of fantastic gal friends, I’ve also been blessed with a whole bunch of great guy friends as well! Having a lot of brothers has helped me both relate to and appreciate these dudes more, and I’m so so thankful for all of them 😀
A mini side note/rant thing-CAN WE ALL AGREE that romantic highschool relationships are overrated and platonic relationships underrated?!? Yes. Thank you. Great. *is tired of seeing high school relationships not work out* I recently asked one of the college girls in our church how I could strengthen my friendships with these guys and relate to them better and received a very simple piece of advice-treat them like your brothers. Which in retrospect, makes sense, since they might as well be my brothers anyways. At this point I’ve lost count of my brothers and it wouldn’t make any difference 😂😂😂 So here’s to all my honorary bros 🙌
Ethan. You’re so tall oh my heck and you give good hugs and you have taught me so much about thankfulness and appreciating your friends.
Noah. Your smile is contagious and I still appreciate you EVEN THOUGH YOU THINK MORNING SHOWERS ARE BETTER THAN EVENING SHOWERS what is this madness. Also you play the organ which is ridiculously cool?!?
the Evan that’s not the other other Evan. From comparing dream motorcycles to recipes to types of dancing, your convos have likely kept me from death by schoolwork this semester.
Gabe, Micah, and Ike. If there ever were any bros more bro than bro 🙄 Thanks for all my morning fistbumps.
Ben and Sam…do y’all count because we’re related? no? yeah nvm idc. Hope to see you at Thanksgiving next year because I’ve missed the Sam show 🥣
Noah and Jacob. Y’ALL HAVE YOU EVER MET SOMEONE, SPENT ONE AFTERNOON WITH THEM, MADE GOOD FRIENDS WITH THEM, AND NEVER SEEN THEM AGAIN. YEAH.
Arris. Whenever I find a new bro meme, it goes straight to you. Thanks for always being there for me from 950 miles away ✌️
Kyle, Eric, and Ryan (always in that order 😂). Watching you three see snow for the first time is one of my favorite memories ever. I’m gonna miss our soccer games ⚽️
Kana, Peter, Morgan, Jackson, Zane, Honor, Johnny, Brendan, Corey, Gabe, *RANDY*, and the rest of my bros from chdt, thanks for all the laughs, sword fights, nicknames, and loud confused screaming you each get 17 brownie points
Caleb and Jonathan. It’s been so much fun getting to know y’all! Next semester is gonna be weird without the same classmates ngl (also Johnny u running away to Ruhl so that’s not fair)
Spikey Mikey, Jason, John, Dan, and Tyler (accidentally forgets to mention Nathan, Nathan, and Nathan <-yes there are three). Y’all put the fun in family camp oh wait i can’t spell
Ben, Reuben, Saar, Elisha, Cameron, and Lucas. From almost making Julie pull over on the highway, to introducing me to oof remix, y’all made echo a blast 🙌
Jayden and David. Julie to Joy: “Those two are so funny. I went downstairs and David said to Jayden ‘see i told you it was breakfast time’ and then I said that breakfast was in a few minutes and he said ‘see i told you it wasn’t breakfast time'”. Yeah, that just about sums up you two 😂
OH MY DUDES FROM LRCA *sends greetings to senator doyle, legolas, balrog, ambrose, toby, and all the peoples*
i swear i missed some but idk
