My Best Friend
It was raining the day Mark Turner died. On a dark, rainy summer night, he foolishly got in the passenger side of a 1998 midnight blue Eclipse.

My best friends name is Brittney Lewis. We have been friends since the ninth grade. We have a few things in common, but we're mostly best friends because opposites attract.

She doesn’t know this, but she changed my life. She was there for me when it seemed like no one else was. When most of my friends were dissolving around me and I just didn’t feel like I could do anything right, she was there, and she made everything seem okay.

It didn’t matter because she was there and she made me feel safe. She’s my best friend, and I love her and admire her for so many different reasons.

The Internet "Technology" is the word derived from Greek word "teknologia" from early 17th century, which literally means "science of craft". One can say technology is the wave to future. While it may be easy to think how technology benefits society, we must understand that it is a double edged sword, one that can harm its users just as quickly as it can help them. However; Internet has played vital role in my life and I cannot envision my life without it, because it serves as a time and money saving tool, and it serves as a bridge for faster and hassle free communication with my family and friends. Time and money only seem to matter when they are running out; this statement is true for...

“It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in spring, when everything else begins again. And it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings.

From the lush, green grass to the smell of an old leather glove, baseball is truly an extraordinary game. Let us look beyond the enormous salaries and free agency and examine baseball for what it really is: an outstanding form of entertainment. Baseball is incredibly important to me, as not only have I learned an enormous amount from it, I have...

My best friend, a descriptive essay
When I first met Josh I wasn't overly impressed. I had walked into a Hooters restaurant to dine with friends, and sitting at the table that greeted me was Josh. I didn't notice his rugged good looks. I didn't pause to gaze down upon his broad shoulders, and thick chest. I hardly noticed the caramel color of his eyes, nor his nicely manicured goatee.
What I saw, was a broken tooth. A very tiny, short, yellowing, broken upper lateral tooth. Nice tooth, I remember thinking. Who could have known that tiny insignificant...

Everyone has someone they consider a best friend. That best friend is like no one else. You can tell them all your secrets without fear of them getting out. They're the person you can act like a nerd with, and know they're going to be just as nerdy, like two peas in a pod. I've known my best friend since I was in the third grade when she moved and came to my school. Today, we're still going to school together, and are better friends than ever. We're like good wine, we get better with age. We have so much in common it's sometimes scary. We think the same boys are cute. We both drive Jeeps. Abercrombie is by far our favorite store. Shopping comes before school, and...

Picture a child of at least six years old standing in a store aisle staring at their mother on the cold tile floor violently twitching and moaning. As a result from the jerking body movements the tongue is severely bitten and a combination of blood and saliva begin to flow out of the mouth. The child is infinitely oblivious to what is going on that the only emotion they can express are the tears streaming down their face from the fact that a hug or kiss won’t make this situation go away. Finally a stranger who notices immediately covers the child’s view and grabs their cell phone to call 911. What you’ve just read was my witnessing of my mother’s faint signs of hypoglycemia.

Hamlet’s Best Friend, Horatio
The Shakespearean drama Hamlet shows much deception and crime. Few friendships in the play survive till the end. But Hamlet and Horatio, best of friends, are not even separated by the hero’s death. This essay will elaborate on this relationship.
A.C. Bradley in Shakespearean Tragedy notes a problem involving Horatio in Shakespeare’s Hamlet:
When Horatio, at the end of the soliloquy, enters and greets Hamlet, it is evident that he and Hamlet have not recently met at Elsinore. Yet Horatio came to Elsinore for the funeral (I.ii. 176). Now even if the funeral took place some three weeks ago, it seems rather strange that Hamlet,...

In an age where everything comes to us so easily, where feelings don’t have to be felt but chemically induced instead, one might address a common problem college students face hoping to find a simple solution.
Stuck in the library with a term paper due the next morning and thoughts of your empty bed just waiting for you is not a far fetched scenario for most college students. A cup of coffee can only do so much and with grades falling as fast as the...

In this paper, I will argue that Aristotle's high-minded person will not make a good friend. By identifying that a high-minded person will not befriend an inferior one, there is no dispute that Aristotle would not make a good friend.Friends are mirror images of themselves. They will reflect back what is good as well as what is not good about each other. This is why the high-minded Aristotle would not make a good friend to most people. High-minded people are the best at what they do. In philosophy, Socrates is high-minded in that no one...

A friend by definition is someone you know well and regard with affection and trust.
I am not a very outgoing person, and to be totally honest, I am very isolated from other human beings. Except for my family and people at school. I cannot say who I would like to have as friend. I never given much thought. Perhaps I like God to be my friend. He is not selfish and very forgiving. He knows the hearts, seeing you for you; the imperfections, the motives, the joys and virtues. I could say what qualities a friend should have. A friend is loyal, reliable, trustworthy, and loving.
The friend is loyal by sticking by you through good times and bad times. She would not gossip behind your back,...

Her. My best friend, my un-biological sister, the calmness of my drama. She has many titles to her name, well from me at least. But unfortunately bad friend is one of them. It all started last year. Our first year in a new school. Our first year in middle school. I can just remember about how we were wishing things wouldn’t change. But they did.
This past year my very best friend has treated me like dirt. I was not the wind beneath her wings, but the dirt beneath her feet. She has treated me like a no one.

Friendship is an everlasting bond that demands love, trust, and making sacrifices. It is a mutual union in which people expect selfless support and motivation from their true friends. The bond can, however, only last if friends are there for each other in good and bad times. Friends do not only help each other in overcoming challenges, but they also bring happiness in one’s life. Friends are an essential ingredient to live a prosperous social life. In the novel Frankenstein Shelley expresses the worth of friendship through Henry Clerval’s self-sacrificing support for Victor. Clerval goes beyond his limits to assist Victor in sickness and difficult times. Although Walton longs for Victor to...

It even reached a point where I knew what she was thinking before she had a chance to say anything out loud. We were constantly together having a great time!

Friends When you tell a friend a secret you usually tell them because you trust them that they won't back stab you in telling others about your secret. When you help a friend in a tough situation or defend her when someone talks bad about her you usually expect the same treatment back. When you think about your close or best friend you usually think that they will always be there for you and that if a conflict ever occurred both you and your friend would be able to resolve it. I had a friend that I thought was one of my closest friends I told her everything there was to know about me. She back stabbed me twice before...

But the word friend is too broad, so people categorize their friends to several types.

Those are convenience friends, special Interest friends, historical friends, crossroad friends, cross-generation friends and close friends.

Nothing is worse than to be alone in the world, and without having any friends, alone is how you will live your life. Albert Camus once said "Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend." Friendships differ between people. Friendships span from individuals, ages, families, neighbors, and cultures. For example, a friendship a person may have with their parents would be different than the friendship they may have with a...

That day I was supposed to be at home taking care of my grandma; however, I chose to go out with my friends. We were partying, drinking, and having fun. Unfortunately, I ignored my dad’s caring words, “Son please stay home and take care of your grandma for she is ill.” My parents trusted to do a simple task, but I breached the trust.

It's very hard to describe one of the worst days of your life. When you recall the pain you felt at that time, the feelings you had in that moment, you kind of pass that trouble one more time.
