Friends come and go in high school. These girls in the photo above me are some females. I hope I still have as friends when I leave high school. We took this picture at Luther Burbank High School. Friends mean a lot especially in high school. Some of them might not be real as they claim they are but you would eventually find that out for yourself. I’ve had so many “friends” that I actually thought I could open up to and do things with them but that wasn’t the case.
Sometimes I wish that I had people to open up to without worrying if they are going to judge me or even leave me without giving me advice. The friends I have at the moment are very fun and outgoing. I’ve lost some close friends that I wish I never lost. But everything happens for a reason. Making friends is easy for me. I’m an extrovert. I love meeting new people. If one of my friends is in need of something I would help them in anyway I can. Because that’s what a good friend does. A good friend is also honest and trustworthy.
