But I wish you’d take out some time for me from your busy schedule.

College has finally come to an end. We’ve both graduated (luckily)! We’re both doing the whole adulting thing and it is kind of working out for us. Both of us have jobs now and we’re earning actual money! I mean, this time last year, we could barely afford street food and now we earn enough to actually eat at that cool Japanese restaurant we always wanted to check out. The only thing coming in our way is time or the lack of it.

Life has changed so much since college ended. I dyed my hair blue after telling you that I  was going to do it for three long years. I moved out of home into an apartment of my own and that has been quite an adventure as you know. Do you know I have actually started eating salads? Yes! Believe it or not, the girl who lived on a diet of french fries is actually eating healthy salads with veggies and all.

And most importantly, while I am as single as ever (blame it on my social anxiety), you have actually managed to find the love of your life. You’ve found someone other than me who can tolerate you for long durations. Your boyfriend is a sweetheart and I’m happy for you guys! Mostly because I get dibs on being the maid of honour when you get married (eventually).

Friends are such an important part of our lives!


All I want for you is happiness and love, and I’m so glad that you’re getting just that from your new boyfriend. It’s so good to see that he’s an upgrade over the insensitive jerk you dated earlier. But at the same time, it is my duty as your best friend to remind you that you cannot neglect your friends for a boyfriend even if he does happen to be the one true love of your life.

You have a tendency to get so involved in a relationship that you forget every other part of your life, especially your friends. We’ve been there before, haven’t we? But that’s not healthy at all. Friends are such an important part of our lives! I mean, who else will you go to when you need to bitch about your boyfriend? Or when you need relationship advice? Or even sexual advice? * wink wink *

Sisters are just as important as misters, remember?


So this is basically me telling you that I wish you could take out some time to meet me. Back in college, we used to meet every single day. Now, it’s been close to two months since we last met. I miss your hugs and I miss gossiping with you about everyone in college. (That reminds me, I have juicy news about some of our ex-classmates). I almost wish we could go back to college and attend all those endless lectures. I miss you so much!

We had promised each other that we would make it a point to meet at least once a month after graduation. But we have met like six times after graduating. And you know what? That sucks! Especially when you have all the time in the world for dates but you can’t spare a day every month for me. I’m your best friend! Sisters are just as important as misters, remember?

Mate, we have to start meeting more often! I’m so worried that we might wake up one day and realise that we’ve become strangers. I really don’t want that nightmare to become a reality. You’re far too important to me. I hope, I still matter to you too.

Your Best Friend Who Misses You!
