Sunflowers, Sneakers, Ties, Cupcakes and Best Friends

The best things in life don’t come in packages.

Friends are life. Who you choose to be friends with shapes who you are right now and who you will become. Friends remind me of Sunflowers. Tall, beautiful, supportive.

Friendship has levels and can be categorized into three main ways:

1. Having super close friends who are willing to do anything for you.

2.ย Being friends with someone only because they have multiple classes with you.

3. Being friends with someone and although you don’t get to talk all the time, you would be willing to run a favor for them anytime and you know they would be willing to do the same.

A perfect example of friendship would be sneakers.


When a person is new to a friendship, it takes a while for them to get out of their shell.

When the friendship starts to get closer and the friend circle gets tighter, this is what it begins to look like:

Friendship like this is just beautiful. (The sneakers are dirty I know ๐Ÿ˜› )

Reaching the stage where you care about each other, spend so much time with each other and then realize how intervened your lives are,very much like these laces. All your problems become their problems, all your happiness becomes their happiness, all your excitement becomes their excitement.

That’s when you realize how connected your life is with them.

Sophomore year proved to be a challenge in our relationship. We had disagreements and stayed upset at each other for silly reasons. And as the end of the year approached, everything settled out. We all got over each others flaws and reflected on the year that had passed.

Its really not worth being mad at someone and losing a good friend.

Where is the joy in baking if you don’t have friends to share your pastries with?

I love watching my friends eat my batch of homemade cupcakes and just seeing them smile while they eat it means the world to me.

What are the best things in your life?

  1. A beautiful post on a beautiful note such as friendship!
    And too much of friendship makes it too much ‘interwined’ which at one point even gets to too much of ‘intervening’ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not sure if ‘intervene’ or ‘interwine’ is what u had meant in one of your lines…but eventually its a lot of both! ๐Ÿ™‚ lol
