Dear Humans,

Friends are those humans who you just click with and want to keep in your life for as long as possible. How would we really live our lives without them? Just think about it, they are there for you when you are down, Snapchatting you when you have had one too many and liking your selfie when it only has 10 likes. Some of us have one big group of friends or others, like me have many different friends. Regardless, they are all in your life for varied reasons and add something different to who you are. Imagine having 15 friends who are all unemotional and only like to party, boring. You need a companion for every aspect of your life, work, education, partying etc. I have friends from different areas and ages of my life so far, here are why some of them are in my life. I have a friend for everything...
