Reasons why friends are GREAT

  1. They give you hugs, and sometimes you don't even have to ask for them
  2. They give it to you straight, and sugar coat when you need some love
  3. They give you unsolicited advice that usually actually helps
  4. They make you laugh, damnit
  5. They always have suggestions for movies or tv shows or music that you haven't paid attention to before but undoubtably need in your life
  6. They love you like family
  7. They surprise you, if they're the best kind of friend
