1. Colourful life
If my life was a canvas, my friends would've been the oil pastels, each friend representing one colour. I'd love to make new friends to add more colour to my life.

2. Down but not out
A friend helps you up when you get knocked down; a true friend says: "Stay down, I've got this."

3. Net gain
A friend is someone who will like all your pictures on Facebook and Instagram so you don't feel like a social outcast.

4. What's cooking?
A friend is someone who has seen the worst in you, but chooses to stay in your life anyway. Oh and makes you cookies when you're down!

5. Food fun
A friend is someone who lets you steal their food at lunch.

A friend is someone who knows what you're thinking without asking you. It's nice when a friend can tell that you're upset and be there for you without asking too many questions.

To me, a friend is like a beacon in the dark. They show you the way and guide you through your ups and downs in life.
