BFFs eternally…

As most of you would know, or have worked out from my constant mentions of her, Toong is my best friend. Or BFF eternally, as we call ourselves (much better, anyone?). Anyway, yesterday I crashed her family Christmas party and she gave me the most amazing present ever. Apart from a block of my favourite chocolate, (old gold peppermint, if anyone wants to send me some :P) she made me a scrapbook for when I move. It’s full of pictures of us and our friends, magazine cut outs, pictures of places we want to go when we go to America after year twelve, and song lyrics. I think the songs are my favourite part, ‘cos when you put them together you get an awesome playlist. The songs are:
Fifteen – Taylor Swift
Gift of a Friend – Demi Lovato
True Friend – Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana
One and the Same – Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez
Right Here – Miley Cyrus
That’s Just The Way We Roll – Jonas Brothers
Superstar – Taylor Swift
You’re My Best Friend – Queen
All of the songs are about friendship and are some of our favourites. These songs are now always going to remind me of Toong and our amazing friendship.
It’s funny, I was actually thinking of making a mix cd or writing out lyrics for her as well, but I was too lazy to go through with it. I did start making a playlist on iTunes though, and most of the songs she put in the scrapbook were on there.
The only song I had that she didn’t was a song from Wicked called ‘For Good’. It’s probably the saddest song in Wicked, as it is sung by Elphaba and Glinda when they go their separate ways at the end. The lyrics are absolutely perfect for our situation, best friends being forced apart, and the first time I heard it after I found out we were movin I couldn’t stop crying. Some of my favourite parts are:
“I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn and we are led to those
Who help us most to grow if we let them
And we help them in return.
Now I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today, because I knew you.
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you I have been changed for good.
So let me say before we part
So much of me is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine by being my friend.
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better
Because I knew you

I have been changed for good.”

This scrapbook meant so much to me, and I just wish I’d gone through with making something like it for her as well. Now even though we’ll be two hours apart, I can just look through it and listen to the songs and be reminded of the awesome times we had together. If you’re ever in the situation where your best friend, or any friend really, is moving away, you should totally make them something like this. It’s something they’ll treasure forever.
