It's weird. When I was in fifth grade, there was this girl.
She was like, my best friend. For a little while, at least. She
wasn't really what I'd call "girly", but she
was totally into fashion and stuff like that. Favorite stores?
Abercrombie, Hollister, stuff like that. She'd drag me to
them at the mall and we'd try on an infinite amount of
clothes. When I went to her house, we had the best time ever. She
really was a great friend. However, that started to change. She
began ignoring me, telling her friends I was annoying and that
she didn't like me. She had done this to other girls before.
She was kind of like that person who could only have one friend
at a time, if you know what I mean... well, anyways, when one of
my good friends told me that she didn't invite me to her
birthday party, I was so devistated. I knew our friendship was
Now I'm in 8th grade. Just a few weeks ago, I saw her at the
mall with a few kids I had been friends with in sixth grade (I
switched schools since then). Some of these kids are kind of
dark, but not in a bad way. They like anime (well, so do I), they
shop at stores like Hot Topic... you know, that kind of middle
schooler. And I'm still friends with some of them.
Well, anywho, I saw her there. She had bleached her hair blonde
and cut it really short, and was dressed completely different...
NOT the type of girl who would be shopping at stores like A&F
and giving you makeovers when you slept over at her house.
I asked my friend about her a few weeks ago, saying, "Oh,
you're friends with her? Is she nice?"
"Yeah," my friend replied. "She's changed so
much. Now she's into anime and she likes all the music we do
and stuff like that."
It just makes me realize how much people change. She sounds as
though she's a completely different person. I want to be
friends with her again, but the thing is, I don't think her
group of friends would really "accept" me, if you know
what I mean. I'm a cheerleader, I'm kind of girly and
kind of sporty...just not the type of girl that those girls would
be friends with. It's kind of sad, because I'd love to
mend some of the friendships I had.
But I guess that's life. ♥
