What is the definition of a friend? Well, I think it’s not someone you just met a couple times. It’s the people that have made an impact on your life. The people that “become a part of you.”

Recently, I’ve had the time to ponder upon this topic… how do you consider people “friends?” It’s the experiences that you share with the person and how much you cherish them in order for you to consider them a friend. It’s the bonds that you create with the person that makes them more special than the average person you meet at school/etc. For me, I’m all about meeting people and creating bonds. I want to look back and think “remember that time when…” Creating bonds w/ people can have a lasting impact on your life. You live for the moments like those that take your breath away. There’s a quote “Your life isn’t measured by the number of breaths you take, it’s measured by the amount of moments that take your breath away.” I want to live my life that way, to enjoy life to the fullest and take advantage of as much as I can before the clock strikes midnight. The friends that become a part of that have a special spot in my heart.

Friend is such a loose term nowadays. It’s become bastardized just like “love” has. To me, to be considered a friend is an honor and to have that honor reduced to basically nothing pains me. It’s all about how many “friends” this or that person has. What does it mean to be “popular?” Is is really all that important in today’s society, with myspace/facebook/xanga/etc? I find it quite hilarious for the people that “collect friends” just to have their friend count higher than others… ridiculous, actually.

In short, no matter how short the meeting, if you’ve created a special bond w/ the person, they will remember you. Meet people and create special memories w/ them. You won’t have any regrets in doing so. “Living life without a regret” that is a phrase to live by…
