I have been watching a whole lot of Sex and the City lately. My boyfriend bought me the entire series for my birthday, and we have watched it together from beginning to end. Most of the time, when I watch a show or movie that I love, I form a crush on one of the characters in the movie. My earliest movie crush was John Travolta in Grease. When I was 12 years old, I was convinced I would either marry him or Leonardo DiCaprio.
However, lately as I have been watching movies and especially Sex and the City, I have not formed crushes on the male characters, but rather the female friendships. I am jealous of the relationship that the four girls from the show have. They do everything together, and can rely on one another for anything. I also covet the closeness of the girls in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and the Golden Girls. I have always, always wanted a close-knit group of best friends I could hang out with. Now don't get me wrong, I do have three good friends that could potentially make up that infamous group.
I have Ashley, my best friend since she moved to Tennessee from California when we were in the sixth grade. She is extremely organized and school-oriented, and always a little bit on edge and nervous. She is always there for me, practically a sister to me. She has an adorable son, and a boyfriend she isn't so sure about all the time. She would be Miranda if we were the women of SATC.
I also have a Carrie, my friend Jazmyn. She is quite the fashionista, and is fiercely independent and opinionated. If I ever needed someone to punch another girl for my, I'd pick Jaz! Her boyfriend is an eerily accurate reincarnation of Aidan, as well. We are also so much alike that I'd consider myself at least half Carrie, too.
My friend Kalyn would be Samantha, and we always joke about this. She is confident and comfortable saying just about anything. She doesn't take any crap from men, and will do exactly what she wants with them, when it is convenient for her. If someone messes with her, they will regret it! She says hilarious and crude things often, and never fails to make me laugh.
That leaves me, the Charlotte of the group. I have never been drunk, or even smoked so much as a cigarette. I believe in love above all, and that everything happens for a reason. I can't wait to be married, and have a family I can take care of. All in a gorgeous Park Avenue apartment, with my pearls on of course! The only problem with my friend situation is that my friends are friends with me, not each other. They all have their own friends that they hang out with besides me, not including one another. In fact, two of them (I won't say which) blatantly don't like one another.
If I could meld all my girlfriends into that dream group, I think I'd have it all. I often dream of traveling and having a daily lunch with my three friends, or going shopping in a big city. I know this will probably never happen, but at least I still have them, even if it's not all at the same time :)
