1. Who is your best friend?
My best friend is a girl named Anna138. We’ve known each other since we were kids. We’re just like two peas in a pod139. With Anna, I feel like I can totally be myself140. We always joke around141 with each other and have a blast142 hanging out. I’m so glad we’re still in each other’s lives.
2. Do you have a friend who is far away?
Yes, I do. My friend John lives in another country. We knew each other when we were little, but his family moved away when we were in high school. So since then, we’ve just kept in touch over text143. I haven’t seen him in person in years, but when we talk it’s like nothing’s changed.
3. Do you have friends you’ve known since childhood?
I don’t have that many friends from childhood, but I definitely have a few. Some of us have stayed in the same city from when we were kids, so it’s been easy for us to hang out with each other over the years. I think it’s really nice having a group of friends like that.
4. What are your standards for a friend?
I’m not too picky144 when it comes to a friend. But there are definitely some important things to consider. I think a friend should be someone who is kind and easy to get along with. They should be good at communicating and want to spend time with you. That’s what’s most important in my book145.
5. Are you a good friend for others?
Yeah, I think I’m a pretty good friend for others. I try to be as considerate as I can. So I make sure to ask about what’s going on their lives. I don’t want to just talk about me all the time. I pay attention to what’s important to them and make sure to spend time with them.
