Nonfiction Piece- Internet Friends
Many people tell you that friendships can’t last, especially those over the internet. But what they don’t realize is that those are the friendships that last longer than any other. You don’t know what people at their school say about them, and they don’t know that about you. They don’t know the stupid things you do or the things you mess up, and you don’t know that about them. There’s no way that they can spread any rumors about you, or tell someone at your school a secret that no one can know. And the best part? The friendship isn’t built off of how you look or what clothes you wear; it’s built off of your personalities; and that’s what counts.
That’s how it is for me. A lot of my closest friends don’t live anywhere around here, they live in other states; even other countries. Yet I can trust them more than anyone else. They’re some of the nicest people in the world. I’m sure that if you were friends with them, you’d be saying the same thing.
One of these people is James. Well, that’s his real name, most people just call him Jimmy. I love Jimmy quite a bit. Yes, he is one of the greatest people of all time; a very fantastic person. James was one of my first friends on the internet that I grew very close to. I can tell him practically anything, and he always gives me great advice. In fact, he started a second blog with multiple members that is dedicated to giving people advice with anything they need. There’s always someone that can help them. He’s also extremely talented, especially when it comes to sketching and drawing. He owns a magical little tablet that hooks up to his computer, and he creates these fantastic drawings on a program similar to the ‘paint’ program we all have. Jimmy is also a gifted writer. He writes lots of fanfiction stories, which are fiction stories about people from bands, TV shows, and movies. They’re all absolutely wonderful. In addition to all of that, Jimmy sings. He writes clever little tunes, and covers many great alternative songs. His nice Irish accent sounds so beautiful when put in a musical form. Yes, James lives across the Atlantic in Dublin, Ireland. Seems like a nice little place to live, considering that he lives there. Speaking of Ireland, another of my very good friends lives there…
His name is Jack. Jack is the only person that can make me feel better when I’m upset or anything. He’s the sweetest person in the world, I swear. And whenever I talk to him, I always end up smiling or laughing because he’s just such a great friend. If anything ever happened to him, I don’t know what I would do. That’s why I get really scared and worried when he’s upset, because it just hurts to see someone so fantastic being sad. It’s not easy to watch that happen. I just want him to be okay, because I love him a lot and he’s pretty much my best friend. I just really hope nothing ever happens to him, because he’s way too good of a person for that. Jack is extremely smart, and he also has various talents too. Some of them include drumming, which he’s very good at, and playing the ukulele. He also likes Pokemon and Doctor Who (which, by the way, is the best show of all time.). He too is Irish, which makes me think that Ireland is a pretty great country to live in. Many nice people live there.
Let’s move out of Ireland and down to Brazil, where my good friend Carol resides. Carol was actually the second friend I made on the internet, and we haven’t stopped talking since. She’s a wonderful person, and I love her to death. She’s hilarious, and we make a joke about everything. We can always cheer each other up. Plus, I can tell her everything. She’s so sweet and funny, and I don’t know what my life would be like without her. Carol is a very creative person, and she too is good at a lot of things. But mostly, she’s good at being herself. She loves a lot of the same music that I do, and also likes a lot of TV shows, books, and movies that I do. If we lived closer, we’d be absolute best friends. I’ll meet her one day, I’m sure of it. If I never do, then my life will not be complete. Carol’s the most fantastic person ever.
Now, I have many other friends, but I’m only going to go on about one more. Her name is Bella, and she lives in California. She is one of my newer friends, we only started talking around mid-June, but she’s like my other half. We share the exact same interests, love all the same shows and movies, and we get along so well. Heck, we could convince people we’re sisters if we tried. But really, I tell her everything. I can trust her with my life not to tell anyone anything. She’s hilarious, and always makes everything better. I love her a lot, and I’ll never, ever forget her. One day I’ll go to California, and meet her and our other friends Ricky and Fausto. But there’s not enough to write about them.
Like I said, I have a lot of other internet friends, but these four mean the most to me. Some of my other friends include Fausto, Ricky, Emily, Ashley, Rian, Gillian, and Jared. There’s one thing they all have in common, and that’s that they’re all great people. None of them are weird, they’re all normal people like you and me. But they don’t take everything for granted like most people. They care about other people, and make them feel better when they’re down. That’s what I love about them the most. I swear, I’ll never forget any of them as long as I live.
