I Have The Internet To Thank For My Best Friend

They say the best people come into our lives unexpectedly. Call it fate, call it destiny, an act of god if you will. These people will pop up LITERALLY OUT OF NOWHERE and then BOOM! They mean the most to you, and now you can’t picture life without them.

What I feel is really unique about these people is that you come across them in places you would never expect. For some, it’s friends you meet at camp when you’re younger, others, it’s on a vacation. For me, though it was surprisingly the internet, of all places the world-wide-web. 

Do you ever go on Facebook, Instagram, or Tumblr and see these random articles that you can lowkey relate to? Well, same! One day while I was bored out of my mind I was curious about how these companies find their writers. So I did what any curious person would do and googled it. Turns out anyone can really write for them, so I took a shot in the dark and applied.

To my surprise the next day I got an email back asking me to join. I was then told that I would be placed on a team of writers. It’s pretty cool, my team is kinda kicka**. It’s a bunch of young women who are so incredibly smart, intelligent, beautiful, and unique in their own ways.

One of these girls and I hit it off from the very beginning, that girl was actually my editor. The girl who took me on as a new writer. As time went on, I continued to grow with the company, as well as my editor. Until we were both paired together as editors to lead a team.  

You would think that two girls who live only an hour away from each other would see each other all the time, well… if you thought this you would be wrong. By the time the two of us became close one of us had moved to Florida while the other lived back home in NY making our friendship a long-distance friendship. Trust me when I say this is one of the hardest things ever! 

When we think of our best friends we think of someone who comes over every week to watch the bachelor with us or our go-to person for Friday night adventures. Well, in this case, your best friend is a couple of hundred miles away. They can’t be there every Friday night, which is completely fine because when you finally do get to see them, it makes you appreciate that time with them so much more!

This is where the internet comes in handy, social media, facetime, zoom, and phone calls as well as many texts are sent between two besties who live in completely different states. These things that seem so simple and things that we take for granted are the very things that keep us together even when we are apart.     

We may have only met a handful of times but it’s like we have known each other for years. I don’t know what I would do or who I would be without my best friend.
