So, yesterday was my best friend’s birthday, and in honour of how amazing she is, I wanted to dedicate this Tuesday to my top ten of our many memories.
Jumping on the First Bed. It’s now a tradition of ours to jump on the owner of the house’s bed each time we go to a house party. We have both been too drunk at parties, and have both been completely sober, and completely agree and theorize that the alcohol is completely unnecessary for a good time. So we jump on beds.
Making Music Videos. Our first one was when we were 13, to One Thing by One Direction, and we made many after, filming ourselves doing ridiculous things.
Cooking. Daniella is the type of person that loves to make others happy, and she always loved cooking and letting me do all the work ;). We’ve made more cookies, brownies, pasta creations, and cakes than I can count.
Star Gazing. My grade 12 year was incredible. We spent almost every weekend driving to a random place in the middle of the night, lying out in some sketchy field, looking at the stars and talking about everything you could possibly imagine.
Prom. Not only did we prom dress shop together, we spent so much of the night together, even though Daniella’s date was her now boyfriend who she was quickly falling in love with. We ditched the prom after party after about an hour, got lost, and ended back at my place with an amazing group of friends and a ton of laughs.
My Sickness. When I was diagnosed with anorexia, Daniella made me a video that she put on YouTube with pictures of us and all these kind words, and also a loooong letter about my recovery and whether or not the hospital was a good decision. She is amazing.
Dinner of the Month. We do a monthly dinner with our friend Insia, which is always so much fun. Daniella and I have a “thing” about atmosphere, always talking about whether a restaurant’s atmosphere is good or not.
Thick and Zesty. One time, Daniella, Emma and I went to the grocery store a little high on coffee and found a tomato sauce that was “thick and zesty” and somehow it was the funniest thing in the world. From that day forward the three of us were the Thick and Zesty girls and we have spaghetti and wine nights that change the world.
Coffee Dates. “I’m picking u up for coffee” is about a weekly text I get from Daniella. We go and sit in different cute and random shops and study and drink coffee and bask in wholesomeness. Because her presence is impossible to get enough of.
Wholesomeness. Sometimes a person is just so wonderful or the presence of someone is so great or you’re so happy and something is so infectious and beautiful and Daniella and I had a talk about these golden times and coined them as being “wholesome.” We also love the word “T’is” and “tad,” and I always but Daniella about saying “odd” way too often, as well as “really,” and she bugs me about answering my own questions with “yeah.” We also love the word “cool” not in a “trendy” sense but in the temperature sense, as well as “pure .” Sometimes we have elaborate conversations just about these great words– never anything negative with us together.
