Happy Birthday Simone!

Today is Simone's birthday!

In celebration, I dedicate this blog post to her and how much I love her.  She really has become one of my very best friends!  Here are some reasons why:

Her adventurous nature
That is easily my favorite thing about Simone.  Last summer, I was feeling a little confused because I had never met anyone my age with the same craving for adventure that I have.  It was rather lonely.  But alas, I soon met Simone and she's just perfect!  She understands all of my crazy ideas and will always go along with them.  One memorable moment was when we were just driving along, and I asked her if she wanted to go to Pittsburgh with me.  Less than a month later we were on a plane heading towards our new adventure!

She's very independent
I love this about Simone.  Being a foreign exchange student, you kind of have to be independent, and she's great at it!  I really respect how self-sufficient Simone is, especially because most kids our age are generally very dependent.  I can always count on Simone to know her schedule, stick to plans, and to be very mature about things.

She's got a great taste in everything!
I was so shocked the first time we figured out we liked the same music.  They have my favorite indie music in Denmark, what??  And it turns out that she has a great taste in everything else as well!  She likes all those weird things that I also like, which is really quite nice.  And she rocks her style, she looks so good every day.  And she also shares my love for different cultures!  Basically we have tons in common.

She runs with me!
People that run with me are the best.  I love to run, and when people will run with me I love them five times more than I already did.  True story.  So how perfect it is that Simone was on the cross country team, and that we met while both having the same problem that involved lockers and being too scared to ask coach for a lock!  And now she is doing track with me.  It is especially awesome that she is about the same pace as I am, so we can push and motivate each other!

In conclusion, I just really love Simone.  I feel so blessed to have her in my life, especially at this point in time.  I feel like we were meant to meet and become friends!  I can't imagine life without her, which is kind of a problem because she's leaving in just a couple of months.  But I'm trying not to think about that because I really don't know what I will do when she is gone!

So Simone, I hope that you have had the happiest of birthdays!  Thank you for being such an amazing friend to me!
