IMG_0741 “Reunited”

           Friendship can be a fickle thing. Often times friends question whether or not their relationships will last the promised “forever.”  Every person goes through changes and periods when he or she needs to grow up or move on. Friendship is not as simply as it used to be when friends were children and could simply play outside and meet up during recess. No, as one gets older friendships fade, new ones are formed, and friends must put in the effort to see each other or to make up after a fight; one must work to keep his or her relationship intact.

The years spent in High school are the most influential. It is then that friendships are formed, established and worked for. Friends promise forever, but then comes time for college and everyone has to move on. Many teens worry about their future and where they will find themselves in five years time. But, one of the scariest things that teens experience is the fear of the unknown and possibly loosing their friends. College is when the true test begins, where friends either fight for their relationship or let it dissipate and leave it in the past.
