Helen Keller once said "walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light."
This is not just a story of the life of my best friend and I. This is a story written to acclaim the power to overcome all the little and big troubles she dealt with.
I remember the first time she told me about her dream to pursue law in National Law University, two years ago. I didn't comprehend her determination then. Now, when she tells me she wants to work at the UN, I believe she will.
She is someone who can balance between her personal life and her ambitions. At first, when she decided to take a break year to study law, I told myself, "how is she going to do this?"
I remember when I began my journey at Christ University, she was at home and she texted, "dude everyone's going to college and I'm so bored at home." I got a little worried. 365 days is a long time. I'd make sure she didn't feel lonely. A few months passed, she didn't complain anymore. She had found new friends, more ambition and more hard work. I knew she'd crack CLAT. I knew she'd win. I was still scared. I wondered if she'd stay here with me. Every time I needed to cry or laugh with. Every time I needed nutella from her refrigerator. Every time I needed her.
She's been my inspiration from the day she spoke her heart out about her dreams. Now, it's not like she's not fun. She's the most hilarious person ever. She has the most embarrassing yet humorous stories. She can't cry for some reason. I cry enough for both of us so I guess we balance things out that way. She knows me. In and out. She lets me do whatever I want to and shows no sign of judging me. I don't recall us fighting. There was one argument that ended in an hour or so. Now, I don't know if that's normal but I completely love it and proud of it.
All I have to say is I love her. She's family.
