In my freshman year, it was the most difficult time of my life. I had discovered that we were getting eviction notices and I had now gotten myself in an abusive relationship. What was worse is that I didn’t know who to turn too. This was when I met my new best friend, and although many people wouldn’t have approved, I did become friends with him. He was gay and I knew it. I had seen him around before in school but somehow we began talking and soon enough we became best friends. We began to keep a journal together. It was so special to me. He would help me cope with my situation, and try to deter me from it as well. Many times I wouldn’t listen to him and I ended up drowning myself in troubles. It got worse and worse but he was always there for me and I was there for him when he needed me. I would go over my mistakes just to meet him all over again. His friendship is something I will never forget. The one most significant moment of our friendship was when I was expelled in from my high school that freshman year, and I ended up in a group home. That is when I needed him most.
