Walking and Talking with Annie
Last Saturday afternoon I hung out with my good friend, Annie. We spent most of the day walking downtown and talking for hours. I was opening up to her about one of my experiences from last year that I hadn’t really told anyone else about other than my friend who had been there with me during that time. I was so fixed in telling my story that I didn’t even notice where I was walking. I was surprised that I was able to talk about it so openly, when last year I couldn’t have brought myself to discuss it.
I’ve felt really close to her lately and have been daringly open with her about a lot of my opinions and various things. She in turn has opened up to me about a lot of things that I didn’t know about. We’re very different personality wise- she’s very extroverted and bubbly, while I’m introverted and reserved. But we share a lot of the same views and get along wonderfully.
I’m really glad that we’ve gotten so much closer. At one time we could be confiding in each other and revealing our deepest thoughts, and the next we could be laughing so hard that we can’t breathe. She’s a really unique person, and I’m really lucky to have her as a friend.
