Dearest Olivia,


I  can’t even begin to explain how amazing you are. I can’t imagine my life without your inspiring rants and goofy smile.


I believe we first met in Drama Club because you and I were both friends with Kristie Martin, and freshman year when I invited you to my birthday mall excursion I hardly knew you, but I was sure we were going to be friends. I thought you were so strong, confident, and brilliant, and I was in awe of your amazing voice.


I love how you have such strong opinions that you will fight for and I love that you don’t put up with anyones bullshit. We’ve had so many thought-provoking discussions and you’ve empowered me to stand up for myself more often.


I know that you sometimes think that you are not good enough, but you should know that you are gorgeous inside and out. To be completely honest, I had quite a crush on you last year. I hope that someday you find a person that you love and makes you happy.


You have the most lovely voice I’ve ever heard, and you should never let anyone bring you down. Follow your dreams of musical theater, I know you can do it, I’m only sad I won’t be there to see you continue to grow. Just remember I will always support you and be a metaphorical shoulder to lean on.


I’m crying now, writing this, because I can’t believe I have to leave. I only hope we can stay in touch. I just wanted to say that I love you and I will miss you immensely.

Love, Gwen



Hey Kyle,


To be honest, I hated you before I even knew you. There are so many judgey bitches at KHS and I guess I was one of them for a while. Luckily, this semester, I got to know you and now you are one of my best friends. It breaks my heart that I have to leave now especially because I haven’t even know you for that long, but I hope we can stay in touch and maybe I can visit sometime.


I remember the first time we really talked, it was about Once Upon A Time, so I guess I owe our friendship to a television show. At first I actually thought you were hitting on me ( Let’s be honest…you probably were. ) and I almost stopped talking to you. Thank gosh I didn’t. ( I was about to type ‘Thank Thor’ but it seemed a little bit too nerdy. Then again, you do play Magic. )


I know it’s really hard for you to open up, but I’m really glad you did with me, at least a little. You have to remember that you are not what people think you are. I hope you have a great two years in high school. I also hope that someday you find a beautiful girl or guy that makes you happy.


You may think you don’t have any affect on people’s lives, but I can’t imagine life without your stupid jokes and painful hugs. Every morning when you say “Hello gorgeous” it made me feel a little less ugly. ( Yes, yes I have self worth issues. ) I am always here for you ( Maybe not geographically, but you know what I mean. ) and you are never alone.


I really, really hope you are happy forever and that we never ever stop talking ( Dammit Kyle, now I’m crying. ) Anyway, I just wanted to remind you that I love you and I will miss you hardcore.
Love, Gwen
