Boys, Boys, Boys

Yes, count it three. Hanging out with three boys in 2 days. I know what you are thinking. This girl is a player. Am I right? Well my friends, you would be sadly mistaken. This girl just happens to have a lot of amazing guy friends whom she loves to hang out with.

First off is my wonderful friend Andrew. He's pretty much like my big brother, except we didn't have to go through all the fighting and awkward childhood memories together. Best of both worlds right? Friday night we went to go see Cop Out, and it was really funny. Then we chilled at Hastings and talked about music FOREVER. Oh and some art too. Basically he's an amazing guy with a huge heart and I know that I can count on him no matter what.

Then we have Austin. Austin is the newest addition to my close guy friends, but he has caught up really fast. I can always count on him to ask the hard questions, and to make me think about life and why I believe the way I do. He challenges me like no one ever has. Most of the time I hate it, but then I love it. Make sense? Well, it does in my head. When I'm with Austin people always say we act like an old married couple. Eh, so what? I've been trying to teach him some compassion, and I think it's working. He on the other hand has not been so successful in trying to teach me the ways of logical thinking.

Then the last guy that I hung out with was Shane. You see Shane and I were good friends in high school. We've talked quite a bit since graduation, but not really hung out. So we decide, "hey, let's hang out!" This was the most awkward decisions I've made in a while. Not because I don't love Shane as a friend or anything, I just don't think we are cut out to be hang out alone kind of friends. The whole thing felt like a date that neither one of us really wanted to be on, even though we enjoy hanging out with each other. Hmmm, now that really doesn't make a lot of sense, but hey, what part of life does? He even said, "this just keeps getting more awkward doesn't it?" So, I've learned my lesson on that one.

I think that boys make the best friends. I'm all for having that one girl friend that you can always go to, but there's just something about boys that I trust. There's no drama, most of the time they are really good listeners ( that may be because they really don't care what you are talking about or aren't paying enough attention to contribute to the conversation, but hey does it matter? I think not.), and they always promise to beat up the person that has hurt you. Oh and the best part of having guy friends is that they always without fail give the best hugs. Period. And we all know how a good hug can fix everything, at least for those few seconds that you are safe from the world in his arms.

"But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine."
