Happy Wednesday everyone! Have you ever had someone who you really wanted to be friends with? Like that super cool girl in your English class who could quote Shakespeare, or that cool dude who watched all the same television shows as you? You have a deep desire to get to know this person as more than just an acquaintance. You can already picture the good times you guys would have together because you know you would be such great friends. This, my dear readers, is called a friend crush.
I have mentioned before that I people watch like a pro. Through my people watching, I observe a lot of people, and consequently develop a lot of friend crushes. How do you identify a friend crush you ask? If you have a strong desire to be friends with someone you do not know, you have a friend crush. This can be people in your classes, or even a stranger that you have noticed around on multiple occasions. I have approached 3 of my recent friend crushes, and we are friends now.
One of these friend crushes is a kid named Zack. He has a really sweet fro and just seemed like a really cool dude. A couple weeks ago, I sat down across from him at Atherton and said, “You have cool hair, and I really feel like we need to be friends.” It worked, nice. My next two new friends are these two cool, hipster looking girls named Nicole and Vivian. I also snagged an open seat at their table in Atherton and expressed my desire to be their friend. We bonded through the art of dance last week when we danced together at the One Billion Rising dance protest against domestic violence, so we are friends now too.
I feel like I have more friend crushes than the average bear, but I am intensely intrigued by people. I have a few friend crushes in the works, so watch out- I might be approaching you next! #Creepy #NotReally #LetMeLoveYou #Friends
If you have a friend crush on anyone, embrace the #BoldMoveJanuary mentality and go tell them! It is quite riveting. Have a great week, and thanks for reading
