When I left the UK, it was a huge deal. Of course I had a huge going away party with all my bestest and closest friends. We spent the whole night promising to keep in touch, swearing that the thousands of miles between us wouldn’t change anything!
Of course things don’t always go as planned. I mean these days it is much easier to keep in touch thanks to Facebook and Smartphones but when you take in to account the time differences and generally being on different sides of the world it just really isn’t as easy as it seems
I think it is safe to say that out of my entire group of friends there is really only one that I have kept in constant touch with throughout the years and regardless of how much time passes without speaking to her or seeing her, we can talk as if nothing. This is the same girl that I’ve known since we were in nursery school together, the girl that was my sworn enemy throughout my childhood and ended up being my best friend throughout my teenage years and into adulthood. Things of course are very different now, we have completely different priorities.. I live in Mexico by the beach with 7 dogs, she’s a married English teacher with an 18 month old son but when we get together we are the same two girls we always have been.
Keeping in touch is hard but it isn’t impossible and it is safe to say that as time goes on it really shows you the people that are meant to stay in your life!
