Four years ago, as I have previously stated in my personal speech, I met a wonderful person who came into my life and made a big difference. When I was about to give up on life because of health problems and because I lost my sister from Sickle Cell, the most wonderful person walked right into my life. You see all she said was hello, and that goes along way. When i'm sad she's there, when i'm burdened down with problems she is there. Even though she doesnt know anything about music when i'm upset about a song, or if my choir is not sounding like I want them to sound she is there. So my definition of a friend is her. She epitimizes what a friend is suppose to be. Even though now we are more than friends she still has never left my side. We may argue because i'm so busy, and we may fight because sometimes I have to drive four or five hours just to play for a choir and drag her along, but she is there. Sometimes when i'm sitting in my office thinking, and worrying about something I just pick up the phone and it seems as if all of my problems go away. When she is in need of something she doesn’t even have to ask. Every weekend is special because now she is at LSU in Baton Rouge, so we take turns visiting each other every weekend. So I end by telling you a little story.
A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just…...

...Different Types of Friend; classification essay Anyone who has spent time with friends will notice that each one has a special personality all of their own. Friends, have different traits that make up their personalities. We have researched this phenomenon in detail and classified friends into different categories. The three kinds of personality are honest, loyal, and caring friends. Friends actually may have similar interest, but this way there are the way they interact and show their up personality type. The first personality type is called honesty. These actions mean the honesty friend is easy to keep our secrets. They usually adapt to their experience and are generally cheerful. An honest person always gives us the truth statement even if it’s not always what you want to hear. As long as you close with this person, you will feel comfort because the lies aren’t good in your friendship. The next notable is loyalty type. These are the more quiet and shy friends but in their physical they have a big loyal to you.

...It is said that a friend in need is a friend in deed. There may be many friends at the time of prosperity. But most of them desert at the time of adversity. We can examine the sincerity of a friend during our time of hardship and trouble. Only a sincere and faithful friend remains with us at the time of our trouble. All others leave us. It is very painful when our friends turn traitors. Money is an enemy of friendship. Everybody has an attraction for money. When lending or borrowing of money is done between two friends, there is great risk. Friendship may be affected. So it is wise for true friends to avoid monetary transaction. Vanity is another element which breaks friendship. Everybody has self-respect. When a person tries to criticise his friend, their friendship is affected. So friendship must be treated very delicately. Very often some hypocrites pretend to be friends. They are more dangerous than avowed enemies. By telling soft words they bring enormous ruin to us. A true friend never exploits. He rather surrenders. But at present, the meaning of friendship has changed. There are many fair-weathered friends. They terminate their friendly tie as soon as their interests are fulfilled. It is very difficult to find a true friend today. It is better to establish true friendship with either a dog or an elephant. Both these beasts will remain faithful to their human friends. Today, friendship between two persons is short-lived. Good friends exercise good influence...

...Friends (stylized as F•R•I•E•N•D•S) is an American sitcom created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which aired on NBC from September 22, 1994 to May 6, 2004. The series revolves around a group of friends in Manhattan. The series was produced by Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television. The original executive producers were Crane, Kauffman and Kevin S. Bright, with numerous others being promoted in later seasons. Kauffman and Crane began developing Friends under the title Insomnia Cafe in November/December 1993. They presented the idea to Bright, with whom they had previously worked, and together they pitched a seven-page treatment of the series to NBC. After several script rewrites and changes, including a second title change to Friends Like Us, the series was finally named Friends and premiered on NBC's coveted Thursday 8:30 pm timeslot. Filming for the series took place at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California in front of a live studio audience.

...whether its business related, romantic or if it’s just friendship. To have a healthy relationship you must undergo many tasks, such as: Communicate, Listen, and always be honest. In every relationship honesty is the best policy. Being trustworthy is very important in any relationship because, no one wants to have a relationship with someone who they cannot trust. Candace Washington Ms.Thom English 101.005 24 February 2010 Second Draft The definition of a friend according to Webster states: one attached to another by affection or esteem; better known as an acquaintance; and a favored companion. In my own personal definition I believe that friendship means someone who is always there for you no matter what, a person who understands you, and a person who loves you for you. Some people may believe that in “girl world” there is no such thing as true friendship, but from personal experience I think that thought is a myth. Although I had many female friends throughout my life time , I have had three best friends since the seventh grade. Many people assume a friendship between four females is unrealistic when it is a possible relationship to have. To obtain and continue our friendship we had to work really hard ,and go through many obstacles. The things that we went through brought us closer together and made our bond strong. Our relationship survived this long because of the ability to communicate, listen, compromise and trust one another. Throughout the years......

...Everyone needs good friends that can hold uphold good characteristics and Christian values. The characteristics of a good friend are honesty, love, service, loyalty, and receiving. •Honesty - Will you tell me the truth? The best gift that someone can give me is honest affirmation (don’t patronize me) and honest correction. (For more on this idea read this post). Not everyone has the “right” to speak into my life this way. This right is earned by the demonstration of the second characteristic… •Love – Will you love me when I’m at the top of my game? Will you love me when I’m in a slump? Love that transcends the “seasons” of life is the “stuff” that genuine friendship is made of! Some people call this “unconditional love.” •Service - Will you help me? Friends help one another. These last few weeks we’ve been blessed by our friends who have helped with meals, prep for the yard sale, words of encouragement, babysitting, etc. To all of you, we are grateful to have friends like you. Thank you for your help. •Loyalty - Will you “stick it out” with me? Will you defend me when I’m being attacked? Will you stick up for me when I’m not there? A friend is someone who would not have to change the conversation when you walk up. •Receiving - Will you receive from me? A friendship is only as strong as the neediest friend. If you’re always helping me but I do not help you, in time you will grow weary of me! BUT when you help me, and allow me to help you we strengthen one another and......

...Friends are people whom we turn to when our spirits need a lift. They are always by our side through thick and thin. They stand beside us even when our disposition is not perfectly right and will fight for us if we are oppressed. Therefore, it is clear that friends play a vital role in shaping who we are today. But what qualities exactly do we need to look for in a friend? A friend should always be caring towards you. He or she should take interest in your problems no matter how big or petty your problem may be. A friend should be able to sit beside you and encourage you to keep your chin up even when everyone else is against you. A friend’s empathy and lovingness will also replenish your worn-out soul and will make you realize how important a friend really is. Apart from that, a friend should be an honest person. An honest friend will dissipate any worries that he or she is lying towards you. A friend’s honesty will enable you to trust his or she’s opinion when it comes to telling you the truth about yourself. For example, an honest friend will remand you on your declining grades and will ask you to work harder while a dishonest friend will see it with a blind eye. Therefore, an overall improvement in yourself will be noticeable if you have an honest friend. Moreover, a friend should be generous both emotionally and knowledge wise. A friend who is generous ought to be able to connect with you and provide emotional support. He or she should also be generous when it comes......

...To everybody, friend plays an important part in our life, so topics which involve in friend become more and more common. There is a debate that whether people who have different interests and personalities cannot be friend. From my perspective, I agree that people should make friend with the people who have same interests and personalities. The first reason why I hold this view is that it must be easier for two people to communicate with each other when they have same interests and personalities. On one hand people always focus on what they are interested in, so they will catch all opportunities to understand it, including communication, on the other hand, the chat with tow people who have same interests and personalities can avoid the embarrassment of silent. I will take an example of myself. Once I went out with tow friends, one has the same interests and personalities to me, while the other has diverse interests and personalities from us. From my own feeling, I would like to talk with the former one better. Another aspect can never be ignore is that it is possible for two people with diverse interests and personalities to produce divergence and contradiction. In other words, two people with different interests and personalities may have two ideas to same things, so when they stand in an opposite opinion, their friendship perhaps confront with a big challenge, and this challenge possesses destructiveness. It is really possible to cause their friendship to be end.......

...to define the word friend became a much more complex task than it was years earlier. According to the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle the definition of friend is "A single soul dwelling in two bodies." Aristotle wrote widely about the conception and importance of true friendship as a determinant of meaningful living. However his definition of friend is definitely not the one we are having these days through social media, the concept of personal and face to face interactions seems to be less important as time goes by and social media takes over. Social media plays a big role in our daily life; we keep in touch with our loved ones and get to know about what others are doing “enhancing” our social lives. However, this make us think about how real and meaningful is our social life on the web. The people we pretend to be on social media is not the ones we are on real life, this being one of the major issue with the modern social relationships we develop these days. When communication is not personal it can be manipulated easily, allowing the sender to direct the message just the way he intends to. Loosing emotions and meaning in the process, different that what can be seen on real conversations and interactions. Researchers of Harvard university who performed a study during 2013 based on teenagers, concluded that social media is indeed affecting the way kids look at friendship and intimacy these days. The average teenager has about 300 Facebook friends and about 79......

...This friend I have is special, whilst young, intelligent and righteous. He lives with me since he was born, a pleasure to have all these years.The strength to face each day can sometimes be drawn from knowing him. When I watch him dribble around with the ball at the street soccer court then knocking it into the goal leaving the opponent frustrated there is unspeakable pride and joy emitting from the core of my heart. How this fine young man has grown from a novice soccer player just three years ago to a forwarder that instill fear to defenders who have to mark him. A elusive player who pass his opponent with ease and elegant he can match the highest standard of the land. The fond memories of the time we spend together still lingers in my mind. Bringing him to the movies, watching him fight with his sisters still sits in my mind. When he is younger, he never kept still and even climb out of the cradle that is meant to restrain him. That is when he is only two years old and that time nearly got a spanking from his grand mother. The coolest transformation is his hair. It uses to be always gelled and groomed into the "curry puff" look that is the trademark look that signifies his childhood days. Curry puff is a local snacks that has ultra ordinary puff when fried. Youth has robbed away that and reinstall a new image to befit the modern time. The "anime" type spike hairstyle is now the replacement. Skinny jeans with a smart tee shirts is the order of the day when he needs...

...word as my topic. That word is friend. According to Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, the definition of the word friend is one attached to another by affection or esteem, acquaintance, and one that is not hostile. In other words, friends are people who love each other in a friendship way. In my opinion, many people see friendship as a bond that is all about having a lot of things in common, spending time together, and hanging out with each other. A friendship is a relationship that does not only occur between friends, but it might also exists among classmates, co-workers, siblings, parents, neighbors, and etc. The definition of this word as defined in the dictionary is acceptable and meaningful but not completely adequate. In my opinion, the meaning of the word friend means more that what is defined in the dictionary. First of all, I do not think an acquaintance should be considered as a friend but the acquaintances could become friends later. For instance, the classmates or co-workers could be your acquaintances because you might know a little bit about them such as their names, their ages, and where they are from. Most of the time you usually see them or communicate with them in the class or at the workplace or maybe you see them at some other places else too because there is one thing called coincidence which generally happens everywhere, but you do not actually spend time together outside of the classroom or the workplace like real friends do. Second of all,......

...always told me to be careful when choosing your friends and remember that not everyone is your friend. There are three different kinds of “friends” in this life. I classify them according to how well I know them and how well they know me. We encounter each of them every day, whether it be at school, home, or through social media. First, there are the "social media friends" generally known as the person behind the computer screen. Next, there are "acquaintance friends" classmates or short-term friend. Lastly, we have "best friends" our true friends. Social media sites such as Instagram or twitter have “followers” who are people behind their cellphones liking your pictures, commenting on your facebook statuses, but you do not really know who they are. You do not really talk to that person in person, this are different social media friends. Secondly, friends I call "acquaintances." This is because they are closer than your Instagram followers or facebook friends, but they nowhere near as close as your best friend. Acquaintances are usually classmates who evolve into "friends" through social media or hanging out here and there. You typically know the acquaintances name, a little of their family history, and usually have several things in common. Lastly your best friend, you probably grew up together as children. They know everything about you. Just as you know everything about them. You consider them to be like family. "A true friend will see you through when others see that you......

...One of Notable part in my Life One of my favorite part of my life is High school life. For the past four years which I became a high school student, I did not expect the unexpected. I was drowned by events, homework’s, responsibilities, problems, friends, and all other things. But then, it came to my mind that high school life could be one of the best things that could ever happen in my life, a life-challenging event. There are many things that I’ll never forget about my high school days. In my four years in my high school, I also experienced to be lonely, rejected, made fun of and all that. But I don’t mind, I don’t care what they say because the only one who knows yourself well is you. I had ups and downs. But mostly, I had easy times. I don’t even care about the deadlines here, deadlines there. I will cherish those moments when I skipped classes because I got bored in our lessons, I just wanted to sit down on benches and trip on corridors. The way I sang loudly at hallways with my crooked friends. The times we dared each other to do some crazy stuff like begging some money on other people as if like we are beggars. Most of the time, I came to school just to see my friends and to have some quality time together. And I knew I was wrong. My parents work hard for me but I don’t exert such effort to do my best on anything. High school life made me learn from my mistakes. Morgado, Kim Mhercky V. December 8, 2015 ...
