My Year In Photos: November


November was a month that I really appreciated the friends I had. Back when I was younger, I always had this idea that in high school and college, I would have friends that I could hang out with all the time. Then, when I was about to finish college, I learned that real friendships, just like romantic relationships, need boundaries in order to stay healthy.

It wasn’t until I reached out of my comfort zone (and the internet) and started volunteering that I found the best friends a girl could ever ask for. These are the kind of friends I can call up about almost anything. The friendships I have with these people started with a shared faith, but it was also based on shared experiences as volunteers. We don’t agree on fandom related things, but we¬†do agree on things we consider most important to us.

So even though November (and Thanksgiving) is centered more around family, I want to honor the metaphorical family I found. My brothers and sisters in Christ. The best friends I could ever ask for.
