How To Make Friends – The story of my life
There’s been a post on Tumblr going around recently that says something about “How do I even make friends? Do I just grab someone and yell ‘you’re mine!’?” Well, in this awkward, amusing life I live, I kind of keep doing just that. But, it might be working.
Day 4-ish of college this year:
Boys walks by with a book.
Me: HEY! IS THAT HARRY POTTER?!
Boy: …. Yes…
Me: Is that the 5th one?!?!
Boy: How did you know that?
Me: Because it’s blue and black…
Boy: Oh ok! Cool! Harry Potter is awesome.
Me: YEAH IT IS! Will you be my best friend?!
– Good news, we’re actually getting to be good friends. His name is Drew. And no, I never find out people’s names before asking to be their best friends.
Day 5-ish of college this year:
*Sitting in the lobby randomly talking to a kid about TV shows.*
Me: Yeah I watch a lot of TV. And I watch it really fast… Like I watched all of Supernatural in 3 weeks.
Boy: I did that with Doctor Who!
Me: YOU WATCH DOCTOR WHO!?!?! THAT’S MY FAVORITE!!!
Boy: YES! Do you watch Sherlock too?!
Me: YES! BE MY BEST FRIEND!
– We’re also getting to be great friends. His name is David.
September 1st – Season Premiere of Doctor Who
*I go to the first floor lobby to the person working the front desk to get the remote for the TV with cable in the basement.
Me: Hey I reserved the TV and I need to get the remote. Wait, are you listening to Aladdin songs?
Me: DUDE! Be my best friend!!
Boy: For real? Sounds great!
Me: Wow! Awesome! Normally I don’t get such an enthusiastic response! *High fives*
Boy: Sweet! Hey, what were you reserving the TV for anyways?
Me: Doctor Who! It’s the —-
Boy: SEASON PREMIERE! I know! I’ll be watching it on the computer!!
Me: YES!!! We actually can be best friends!!!

Yep. This how I live my life. Be entertained, everyone else is.
