My Best Friend (in every sense of the words used) :D

I did a post way back here when someone I considered to be my best friend hurt me and opened my eyes. I thank her because she helped me see that I had an awesome friend who was more deserving of that title. My significant other always tries to fight for this title which I don’t mind but when he also observed how awesome she is he said we should share her! Na wa o, I no dey share abeg. I met Antonia in 2007 I think,  that was in my 300L, I met her through my ex-bestfriend and her roommate who she was classmates with, she’d come to browse in their room which got a better wifi-connection from the window. I’m cracking my head hard to remember these details so forget all the ‘I thinks’ that will be contained in this post. Merci. Moving on, when I first saw her I think I was attracted to her look, her outfit, stature and glasses, she looked like a boss walking on air and then she spoke and was so fluent. She laughed and I was in love!! Her laughter had so much character and was sooo full of life, can a person get any more real than that. Nope. We got closer when I’d visit her in her room, i knew most of her classmates and the girls on her floor, most of which were my acquaintances and a few friends. I got to know more about her, she was a Photoshop guru, she could draw, design outfits, she was an internet guru, hair guru, had a blog, writer of several short stories (gaminegirlie), a Nairaland (was really cool back then) regular, traveller (ajala traveller.lool)and a very smart hottie with lovely eyes and smile, among other things I could go on! She inspired me to start my own blog, I remember asking her something I wanted to do on the blog and she said ‘Google it’. I needed that kinda friend that would make me better and be frank with me. I got more and more close to her and people will ask ‘how are u even friends with her? She’s kinda weird’ and I just tell them well she’s really cool and think this weird they say she is, is just their inability to catch up  with her awesomeness speaking. I remember chilling with her during our graduation and taking pics and we had an Appletini in her room afterwards, doing yoga and Chinese bends and making silly videos (I wonder where all those pics and vids are sef), I don’t really recall.
We got even closer after school while we were serving, we started our natural hair journey around the same time and applied to schools together for our Masters programme, she’d visit me at work and I’d visit her at home, u get the drift. We both got our admission letters but I couldn't go and she went. That did not hinder our friendship, we kept in touch all the while, phone calls  yahoo messenger, email, et al and our friendship grew. She came around and we got to see, I was also finally able to get some time off work and travel to see her and I had a swell time as well. She is in the top 3 of the best people that I am privileged to have in my life and I really appreciate her and thank God for having her and I try to tell her how awesome she is as much as possible. We have our disagreements and different views at times and that doesn't prevent us from getting along. I love you Antonia!!! For who u are, all u’ve done for me and more!!

would go to super extra lengths to make her happy (and see her hearty grin) and it warms my heart to know she would do the same for me.  She’s my confidante, older sis, christian sister, bizness partner and more and I can count on her to give me her candid opinion and advice and viceversa. She’s the best friend a girl can ask for and I’m da lucky girl that got her!!!

Please Share it! :)
