There She Goes

I started writing this over a week ago.

I have many friends, and I'm blessed with a few close ones I hold dear to my heart. This is not meant to hurt any one of them, but just to say my feelings on this situation.

One of my closest friends has decided to move to another province. She has her reasons, and there's some pretty good ones. I'm happy and excited for her, for her future, near and far. I hope this is a step she needs to do what she feels is right, and I stand behind her, always. I will be so happy the day she tells me the great news this journey will bring her.

But fuck, am I going to miss her. It really is hard to find good friends these days. Ones that never would do anything to intentionally hurt you and are there for you every time they possibly can be. Ones that you would do anything for in return. Ones you don't count the favours, because you know that it doesn't matter because you do things for each other so often, so often it doesn't feel like a favour anymore. We do these things for each other because we want to.

She is probably my "newest" friend, since she only moved to my small little town two years ago, but it felt right. It felt like we'd known each other forever. We got along pretty well, which was surprising because we are very much alike in the way we think and act. Even though on the outside, how we wear clothes, makeup etc, we are so very opposite. She would be considered more of a girly girl, whereas I would be considered more of a tomboy.

Yet, we got along well. Mostly well, anyway. Well enough this hurts.

Last night we went out to the city of Barrie, kind of spontaneously, and I'm glad we did. There's always going to be things that stick out in your mind. Like this photo we took this morning, the evidence of our bar hopping experience. Her last night out here with me. Our last major experience together, for a while at least.
This is one of those friends that has come to car meets with me, knowing she would know only me. Someone that would accompany me to the scrap yard, so I'd have someone to talk to as I looked for the things I needed. These were not things she would have chosen, but she came with me anyway.

I'm going to miss calling her up to go on a random road trip sometimes over 600km round trip. I'm going to miss spontaneous breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and dinners of appetizers only. I'm going to miss staying up late into the night laughing at things online together, or just texting until we're both exhausted.

I'm going to miss her.


  1. She's lucky to have you as a friend!

    1. Thank you. I have been lucky to have her too.

  2. Well, this just made me cry, since as you know I also had (one of) my best friends move away as well, so I can relate to a lot of this. It sucks. Especially the "happy for you/sad for me" aspect. It's not the same but I'm still here if you ever need someone to call or hang out with.

    1. I will definitely be taking you up on that!
