1000 Awesome Things: Friends who are there for you

One of my new favorite websites to go to is called “1000 Awesome Things” and as the name may suggest, it’s a countdown of, well, 1000 awesome things in our day-to-day lives, so I thought why not take a moment and commemorate those friends who seem to always be there for you.

That’s why it’s so incredibly awesome and butterfly inducing when your friends just know. Thankfully I’m blessed with a ton of people at my school and back at home who I know will always have my back and, well, that’s simply
