Childhood Friend
Posted 10/15/13
I had a childhood girlfriend. I think it was kindergarten or first grade and during class she would always sneak up behind me or pull my chair back and give me kisses. We then ended up hanging out a lot as our parents brought us together outside of school but then all of a sudden her parents transferred her to a private Catholic school and I we stopped hanging out. The last memory I have of her was while I was on the school bus about to go home and I saw her walking in her new school uniform.

I had three childhood friends growing up, two female and one male. Their names were Vanessa, Nicole, and Patrick (Pat). I meet them after moving back to Alaska when I was 6 years old. I meet Nicole and Vanessa first, they were my neighbors. Nicole and her foster-brother, Kevin, lived in the Apartment next to mine. Nicole was a year or two older then me and my step-sisters friend. I was friends with Kevin, whom I found out was actually my cousin. As time passed, I started to play with Nicole more then my step-sister. She was like one of the guys; we use to play in the woods together and explore and play "war". I lost contact with her after 5th grade and I have no idea where she is or how she is doing. wow it has been a decade.

Vanessa was my other childhood friend. She was my first crush and I was hers. Her parents and my father/step-mother were "friends" (unmentionable illicit activities, on top of "friendship") and they lived in the apartment complex across from me. Vanessa started as my step-sister's best friend (yes, I know, I'm a best-friend stealer, I blame it on my honeyed tongue) but as time passed, we grew closer. We used to visit each others houses and make "forts" out of blankets hung on bed frames and play "house". Hahaha, childhood courtship is so damn cute and innocent. Likewise, our relationship fell apart by middle school. I spent most of my 6th grade year out of state and by the time I returned, she had already moved out of Alaska. I found her on Facebook 4 or 5 years ago but I decided not to contact her, based on her profile information, our relationship would be quite contentious. However, She is still the cute, petite, blond I remember, but she is no longer my type.

My third childhood friend is Pat. We meet in third grade and stayed friend through middle school. We were thick as thieves; everybody assumed where there was one, the other was close by. Our friendship fell apart after I moved out of Alaska at 14, my freshman year of high school. I thought of him often but could never make contact until I was 17 or 18 years old. Even though we were close, we could not be more different now. Even though both dropped out of high school, I moved on and I'm currently working on my B.A. but Pat decided to live in the past. He is spends his day playing games and does not intend to make a better life for himself. Because I choose to move forward and he did not, we are no longer friends. I can understand why he is stuck in the place he is, I came out of the same rut. We both have traumatic pasts and that is why we got along. However, I must march forward and live life to the fullest and if he is not willing to join me then I will just have to leave Pat behind. I have not talked to him in three or four years.

Thank you for this Forum Topic, it was nice to reminisce and think about some of my happy childhood memories. It was a nice way to relieve some of the stress incurred by mid-terms.

Respectfully,

Jesse Alexander

I had a few childhood friends when I was growing up.

One of them was this boy and we became best friends in kindergarten when he fell and started crying and I helped him up. From then on we did a lot of things together, we even rode the same bus. For a while me and him were always competing for the #1 student in our class. But as time went on, I became more social with other classmates and he kept staying to himself with books. He was very intelligent but had poor social skills, I was his only competition but I was better socially. It was in 5th grade when he said he was going to move to the Coachella area, since his mom worked in the hospital over there. I was sad that he left, and now we don't really talk since he moved to another state and is hating the world, blaming everyone for his social-related problems. His mom wanted me to talk to him but he just ignores any messages I send his way.

There was another boy that I knew from kindergarten. We didn't talk much but our moms knew each other. He went to the same catholic church as I did, we ended up making our first communion together and altar servers for our church for over 5 years. He was the one that got me into anime and video games and I'm so grateful for that. We were in the same class together from kindergarten to my sophomore year of high school, when I decided to transfer to improve myself and to stay in a competitive band and join an orchestra. We still talk to this very day, but he has a very jealous girlfriend who thinks I'm trying to steal him. But his mom and I still talk and she confides in me like her older daughter about my dear friend.

The third childhood friend was also a boy (apparently I got along with boys better than I did with girls lol) that I knew from kindergarten. His family owned the local bar and restaurant. I remember he got held back when we were in 1st grade because he couldn't read that well. But we still kept in touch, and we ended up being in martial arts together for a while before they cut the program due to me and him being the only middle school students in our small town that attended. His mom was always nice, but she passed away during my freshman year of high school. I attended the funeral for his mom and he was glad I was there. We still talk, and he acts like an older brother to me.

I eventually befriended a few girls but we have lost contact. Everything changed for us when we got to high school and I joined the band. Some made their way into the popular crowd, others found their way into other groups. I transferred high schools after my sophomore years but I lost contact with those girls. Today I have 3 of the 5 girls I knew from kindergarten on facebook as friends, but we don't talk that much anymore.

It is a bit sad, but nice, to think back about my childhood. Most of the time I was busy doing volunteer work but I'm glad to say I did have friends who supported me during a crisis I had in middle school. All of the girls I knew have kids now, not sure where the dad is for any of them. But I guess I'm happy for them

Yea i had a great childhood friend!

We were the best of friends. Hang out all the time, had each others back all through middle school and beginning of High School. Then He started to change Sophomore year. The dude made some lame ass friends that just kept dragging him down. His grades dropped like crazy, he started fighting, he got into drugs and not just weed but damn he was on some shit. I tried o help him but he said his life was fine. From then on i kept me distance from him. He lives close to me but i dont mess with him at all! At one point when he was 19 in a relationship with a 15 year old! WTF! and recently he went to jail for sexual assault. Nope, F&%k that 'im staying clear from him.

I just hope he gets his life together. I really do...

She was my first love. We spent all our time together and both cared for one another deeply. Eventually our parents had a fight and we couldn't see each other anymore. I didn't see her for another 6 years, never once thinking of another girl. She ended up dating my best friend and moved on. I on the other hand still await my love.

She was my first and only best friend from third grade, but then she moved to a different state after the fifth grade and I lost contact with her. Then I moved to a different city and made some new friends in the sixth grade whom I'm still friends with. I do wonder how she is doing now...

I had a childhood friend, that I later fell in love with. Too bad that she moved with her family right after I confessed to her. Turns out that she loved me too but it was never meant to be.

Alright, enough sad crap.

I grew up living in an apartment complex and met 6 of my childhood friends there, 5 of them were siblings. We would all hang out at the park and play till our parents came looking for us. When I moved after 3rd grade I lost contact with them till my sophomore year of high school I bumped into of the siblings with my other childhood friend, and it turned out that they lived close to me. Now we hang out whenever we're aren't working and talk about the good old days.

I had childhood friend back when I was in kindergarten. I still remembered how he looks like as a kid but I couldn't recall his name though. He was not allowed to participate in our outdoor games because he had a weak heart. I used to accompany and play with him. We lost contact when my family moved out. I wonder what happen to him now.....

~Yeah, I have a few childhood friends. 3 of them to be exact and they were all older than me. Graham, Kevin, and John. Graham was 5 years older than me, Kevin was 2 or 3 years older, I think, and John was 3 years older. Graham was the bossy type, Kevin was the clown of the group, John was the one who was always pissed off if u teased him a little, and I was the quiet one who liked anime since I was a little kid. We would always hang out, do stupid things together. We would always come out to play everyday, we would cash in what little money we had, to buy chips, and candies so we could have our own picnic. Sometimes, we would sleep over at John's house to talk, watch movies, and talk some more until we got sleepy. When they were in high school and I was still in the 3rd grade, Graham had a drink w/ his classmates and I decided to try drinking beer. I was in 3rd grade then. Then when we got older, we would always drink when it was someone's birthday, or if we really just wanted to drink and talk about stuff.

Then we had our first major fight when I was in the 6th grade. We ignored each other for about 9 months. The 9 months that we hadn't talked to each other, two of my friends found other people to hang out with. Then when we made up, naturally those other people they befriended also became my friend. Our circle got bigger and we started hanging out again everyday. One friend of ours moved to Japan a few years ago to live with his mother. He only came back once and I haven't seen him again since. Then I had to move out to another place because my mom wanted to live in a condo. Since then, I had not been able to chill out with them for a while but sometimes I would visit them just to talk to them. We've been friends for about 15 years now. Our friendship is pretty solid. Man, this post is making me remember all the great memories of when I was a kid, always playing and hanging out with my friends without a problem and without a care in the world. Thanks to this thread, I was able to sit back, relax, and forget about the bad stuff, for a while anyway.
