Hi guys! So, some time ago Ospreyshire nominated me for an award! Thank you for nominating me, I really appreciate it! It took me a long time to get to this, but I’m glad I found the time.
About the award:
“This may seem like a bit of an odd award but I think it’s so important to tell the people closest to us how much we care about them, and in a world that is so full of hate and division, it’s the little things we do that can help make a big impact – so go tell someone you love them!
This award isn’t compulsory by any means but if you decide to take part, it would mean the world to me. I wonder if there will ever be a day when I’m scrolling through WordPress Reader and I see the Blogging Chum Award floating around on other blogs!”
- Be sure to use the award image!
- List the rules & about paragraph!
- Thank whoever nominated you!
- Write a letter to someone who means a lot to you to spread some positivity around the Internet – anyone will do!
- Nominate 5-10 more people for the award and go let them know about it in their comments!
So here’s my letter. I decided to write it to my long-time friend who means a lot to me so it will be quite a personal piece. I don’t think I’ve done something like this before. I’ll probably give her a copy of this letter at some point.
Hi! I’m so bad at starting letters but really, where do I start? Letter writing, as you once said to me, is quit old fashioned. I remember that letter you wrote to me. I still have it. You mentioned something like you need the past to face the future or something and I agree with you. I also think letters convey something other means just can’t. I’ve always wanted to write a letter back to you at some point but I never really knew what to write. I still don’t know what to say really but here goes nothing.
Let’s start with saying thank you. Thank you for always being there for me and listening to everything I have to say. Thank you for always making time to see me and talk to me. I know how tough your studies have been and how much work you have to do so it means a lot when you take out the time to come see me or give me a quick call. I can’t forget all your bakes! You give me something all the time and I love your cooking! It always tastes so good! Thank you, for everything you’ve done for me and for supporting me in everything I’ve done so far.
We’ve had quite the friendship. I believe it’s been around ten years since we met. That’s such a long time! But, I know since you’ve stuck with me through my mood swings, outbursts, tears and all the laughter that you’ll always be there for me and I’ll always be there for you. It’s been a rollercoaster of years really. Still, it’s hard to believe how long it’s been! Remember when I used to be a solid fangirl? And all that screaming? I’m glad we were on the same page when it came to Ikuto and Zero. Lol, we still are when it comes to those two! Year seven manga and anime craze was the real deal! How I didn’t watch much anime after that is beyond me but that was one crazy year for us that led to all those crazy years that followed. Damn, those were the good days. Sitting in the library on the computer or the beanbags drooling over their beauty! Remember the fanart we sent off and the drawing you did of The Wanted? I wish I’d taken a picture of it or something! Still, I do have some of the other drawings you did for me back when I was in year seven. I think you did some of Shugo Chara for me. And then there’s the t shirt, the canvas and the door handle you gave me. So much artwork! Thank you for all of that. I absolutely love your artwork so thanks for always sharing them with me.
Remembering secondary school just brings back the good times and the bad times we had. Your sarcasm was a killer, it still is. Nobody could hold a candle to you when it came to snarky remarks or fights for that matter. You were so athletic and still are! I wish I was like that at times but I’m too lazy to really go out and get into shape properly but I will try and make an effort once summer rolls round. Oh I just remembered! Do you remember that play we had to perform in Year 8 English and we based ours on Diary of a Bad Man? Man, that was funny! I still remember that pretty clearly. I played the mum didn’t I? It was so hard not to laugh during that performance. I think we did a pretty good job on that! (LOL!). After GCSE started, things got way too serious in classes. I kind of missed having you in lessons because you always made lessons so much fun. It’s such a shame really because I think year nine was the last time where we shared a majority of classes. Still, secondary school turned out to be some of the best years of my life.
We didn’t see each other much after we started A Levels. It ended up being a meeting every couple of months and honestly, I was scared that we’d drift apart like that. You know how terrible I am when it comes to replying to messages and I can’t always meet up because of home life so there was always this thought at the back of my mind that we’d drift apart. I knew that it was unlikely but the thought was still there. Thank the lord that didn’t happen. Recently, we’ve been able to meet up much more often and I like that. I hope we can continue that especially since things will probably get really hectic after we graduate (well, I’m just assuming here).
Still, it was a shame that we didn’t go to the same college. I know we all have our own paths to walk and things can get lonely but every time I heard about what A Levels was like for you, I always felt bad for you and wished that things were different. If only… That thought was always with me and in a sense still is. Uni hasn’t always been kind to you and I don’t like that. Knowing how hard you’ve worked to get here, I had wished that uni would be more fun and enjoyable for you but that hasn’t always been the case and I hate that. Still, you’ve gotten through it all. I really like that about you. You get through every obstacle and every hardship and watching you, inspires me as well. I feel blessed having a friend who inspires me to be the best person that I can be.
To be fair, you’re the first person I tell everything to and consult about things I want to do. Like my blog. You were the first person I told about starting one and how it’s going. You always ask about it and your support means a lot to me. It’s nice having friends who support you and push you to do better. Especially at a time like this, when things haven’t bene great for me. Knowing you’ll be there when I need someone to talk or when I need to let it out gives me the confidence to keep pushing forward and not crumbling. Really, I feel lucky having you as a friend. Thank you for always being you and for sticking around with me for so long.
That turned out to be a longer letter than I expected. Thank you for reading it until the end. All I really wanted to say was thank you for sticking with me for so long! 🙂
Here’s to our friendship thus far and to the days, months and years yet to come!
Oh god, that turned out to be a cringe filled letter! Who cares, I thin she’ll like it, As I said it is quite a personal piece which I will give to the actual person in due time. 🙂
