Recently one of my oldest friends Emma came to visit me here in Aarhus. Emma and I used to be classmates until both of us switched schools between 5th and 6th grade. And then some years later she moved to Jutland and we sort of (but not really) lost contact.
You can’t really loose a friend because of distance these days.
Between facebook, instagram and messenger we were able to somewhat follow each others lives. With friends being active in your feed somewhere on the vast interwebs it’s hard to forget about them. Especially if they at some point in your life were very important. That’s how I feel with Emma. Emma used to be such a huge part of my life, I practically lived at her house at one point. Then we transferred to different schools and suddenly we didn’t see so much of each other. But whenever we were together it was like we never been apart. It’s the same to this day.
You don’t just out grow great friends.
I think the reason why Emma and I still talk (like we have never been apart) is that we knew each other so well during a time where our personalities started to form. Where we sort of got to know our morals. Together we developed some of the traits that wont change as you grow up. And because of this we can grow in different directions without growing apart.
A day of reconnecting.
When I moved here I had the realization that Emma now lived close to me again. So I hit her up on facebook and invited her to Aarhus. Thankfully she said “hell yeah” and came up here. We walked around midtown and out on the harbour where all of the pictures are from.
We had lunch at this restaurant called Mackie’s Pizza, because they serve some killer glutenfree pizzas. (Being gluten free is challenging at times, specially when one wants pizza at 3 in the morning. Mackie’s unfortunately isn’t open at 3AM…) If you too are gluten free or if you just want great pizza I recommend you check out Mackie’s.
