Once upon a bogan high school, a gappy toothed 15 year old joined a couple of her Music class mates to write a song and enter it in a national song competition.
A new school program called “Peer Support” was to be rolled out in all Australian public high schools. The objective was for the wise old owl Yr 10’s to offer advise and mentoring to the vulnerable Yr 7’s. Thus, the song competition was in aid of raising its awareness.
So this geeky girl and her friends happened to win it.
Despite the fact the song was AWESOME, accompanied with tinny keyboard drums, the much loved high school recorder and a tone deaf choir, it did NOT go on to making the Countdown Top 10.
Molly Meldrum just had no idea what he missed out on.
Especially when it had extremely profound lyrics like:
“Love can come and love can go,
But friends will always be.
What’s the meaning of togetherness?
It means friendship everywhere.
Life’s not hard when you’ve got friends around,
Because someone’s always there…”
Looking back, while the words this aspiring teenage pop star wrote were akin to her cheesy outlook on high school life, the sentiment has stayed.
In fact, it’s been constantly reaffirmed throughout her life.
What happens when life goes haywire?
Who do I turn to?
Where are we without our girlfriends?
Today’s FYBF is dedicated to all my awesome BFF’s. They’ve all come across in all different stages of my life and for that, I’m grateful.
We may not keep in touch as often as we like but there’s always honesty, loyalty and of course, laughs.
Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
And there are a few of my lovelies going through hardships at the moment. I just want to say I’m here for them.
And for all the girlfriends in the above collage, I’ll be sending all of them that old ladies photo because, heck. Doesn’t it just say everything about sisterhood?
Who are your BFF’s? Have you made a pact to grow old and senile together?
