Best Friends Day

Hey y’all, and welcome to the June Teen Scene article in Enid Monthly. Congrats on making it halfway through 2023!! June 8th is National Best Friend Day so this month I’m going to tell you all about my best friends and what I look for in friends. Let’s go!! 

My first best friend was Mallie. We’ve known each other since pre-k but became really close in the 5th grade. She is one of the funniest girls I know and never fails to put a smile on my face. Even though she can be a little slow at times I love her so much and couldn’t ask for anyone better. During cross country season Mallie started being friends with a girl named Maritza, they instantly clicked. Since I was always with Mallie I started to get to know Maritza and we also became close and now our Trio is unbreakable. One of my favorite memories with them is when we had our first sleepover together, we stayed up till 6 in the morning just talking.

This year I took Speech and Debate and I didn’t really have any friends or know anyone in that class. I started talking to this girl named Aspen and we instantly became friends. We started hanging out more at tournaments and talking all the time during class. She had a love for running so she asked me about the track team and I gave her a little push to join and after she did we became besties. At every track meet it would always be me and her together unless one of us was running. She even got me to teach her how to play tennis!! One of my favorite memories with Aspen is whenever we took funny pictures in the 5th hour using the panoramic setting on our camera and made each other look so dumb.

The main quality I look for when choosing friends is being hilarious. If you are not funny then I don’t know how we could be friends!! Me and my friends are always laughing at some point which can really bring you up if you’re feeling down on yourself. I think a lot more teens need to find better friends for themselves because you ARE your friends. If they are doing something they shouldn’t be doing then it’s going to put a bad look on YOU. This occurs a lot in high school friend groups and I wish some people would try to better themselves by finding new friends. 

Being a good friend to others is also very important because you never know what they could be going through. Even if it’s simple it’s always important to let someone know you are there for them when they think no one else is. If you see someone having a bad day don’t be rude, just mind your own business or ask them what’s wrong. When I notice one of my best friends is down on themselves I always try to make them laugh and cheer them up so maybe you should try it too!!  Thank you for reading this month’s article, I hope you enjoyed it!! I would love to hear about your best friends so email me at tweensceneenid@gmail.com also if you have any comment, questions or ideas for upcoming articles let me know there too! I hope you all have a wonderful June and a Happy Father’s Day. Bye for now!!
