An Open Letter To My Long Distance BFF

Dear Friend,

I’m sorry I can’t be by your side when I know you’re hurting. I’m sorry that I can only be a voice and not the one you can put your head on and cry your eyes out on. I’m sorry we can’t go to McDonalds at 2 AM to have nuggs. I’m sorry I can’t be there to tell you that outfit will literally be the worst purchase you will ever make. I’m sorry for all the things I can’t do for you but there are things I can do for you.

I will be there to FaceTime when you’re bored on your break. I will be there to send you funny memes and make you laugh when I know you’re crying your eyes out. I will be there to cyberstalk that boy you’ve been crushing on. I will be there to message you the crazy thing that happened in that last Greys episode. I will be online commenting to almost every tweet, photo, or status you have.

The times we have together are special only because it happens maybe once a year or once every two years. We wake up at 8 am to make sure we can make the most of the day and hit every mall, theme park, and beautiful sunset we can find. We even take a day just to watch a movie together only because FaceTime┬áNetflix watching makes it a couple seconds delayed. Every moment is magical and it always will be because we know what it’s like to be apart.

Distance will not stop us. Lack of funds will not stop us. You know why? Because we are unstoppable. Just because we are long distance doesn’t mean we’re any less of friends. In fact you’re just as important as the ones I see everyday, if not more. My friend, thank you for everything. However we have met, I’m thankful for that. I’m thankful for you. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Until next time,

-Jenna
