Treasure and I have been best friends since the 3rd grade. We went through times when we couldn't stand to be around one another to find ourselves sleeping over at one another's houses the next week. She hit me one time in middle school and she'll never live that one down. When I went to visit family in SC for awhile during the summer, she slept over for the next two weeks. We were neighbors until my freshmen year of high school. I moved to the top of the mountain, but that didn't change much. When we were moving into another house during my junior year, I lived with her for months while my parents got everything together. We know when we are pushing one another's buttons and we go to separate rooms. We walked together during our high school graduation. We ended up going to seperate colleges that were 3 hours apart. It didn't change the fact of us being best friends. She's the one I call when I'm crying and need someone to just listen.
Now that we have both been college graduates for a year, we find that more and more time elapses before we see one another. Even though this is true, we call each other first if something is going wrong or we've had the best day of our lives and want to the other person to know about it first.
At the end of this month, my best friend is moving to Florida. I live in West Virginia. I have known this is going to happen for awhile, but now it's here upon me. Even though we may not see one another a lot now, I know she's close by. I had a friend move to Vermont last year, and it was difficult. I can't imagine how difficult it will be to say goodbye to Treasure. I know we won't say 'goodbye.' We'll already be planning my trip down to see her.
Many of you have probably gone through this (maybe many times) and my question is how do you deal? I'm a trip planner and it's so hard for me not to try to figure out a trip everyone couple months to see her. We're both just starting out so it's not feasible. My plan as of right now is just to enjoy it now and we'll manage when the time comes.
