Then, naturally, the videochats got smaller and smaller, and our friend group broke off into different things. I really wanted to tell her in person, but then I just got so, so nervous and I chickened out. Aisha: Still, to this day, Kwon is my chaperone for everything. Chris: Same. But some of these people are so rude.
I have a funny story about this. Chris: She has records of you saying something—be careful. Aisha: Also, Kwon had a major transformation.
Courtesy of Aisha Akhter Beck: Have there been any other major milestones in your lives that intersected with your friendship? But some of these people are so rude. So she was in the city, Kwon was in the city.
Beck: Did you drift apart for a little while or something? They were at one point roommates while going to school.
Jess: Sha graduated a cnatting before me from college. Beck: Does each person have a certain role that you play in your Gchat dynamic?
Beck: Did you drift apart for a little while or something? Beck: Do you ever use Gchat to just vent to each other?
And then that spiraled into talking to each other nonstop. I was like, Why would Julie want to see a screenshot of us sharing our lunches? Are you happy? Aisha: No. And you do your stretches while they take attendance.
He eats so well; he goes to the gym twice a day sometimes. Kwon is so buff right now. He walked you to our hour date. Chris Kwon: I have to interject: I hate how accurate this story is. And then that spiraled into talking to each other nonstop. We went to a gay bar, just to have a beer, because I get nervous.
Aisha: More specifically, I mentioned it before, my parents were super strict growing up. If you or someone you know should be featured on The Friendship Files, get in touch at friendshipfiles theatlantic. I had wiyh first date with someone and I was gonna meet him at the Russian Fcn chat rooms Room.
Aisha: I feel like making friends is so hard chhatting days. Jess: But the minute high school ended, almost all of us stopped talking to each other. Jess: Honestly, yeah. Chris: Oh my God.
Beck: Did you guys go to different schools, or different cities for work, after high school? Chris: I was just about to say, you always bring the receipts. As I told you, Kwon walks me to things friemds the time and boosts my confidence. I just typed in the word acronym when we were talking about it and I realized this could be its own book—all of the acronyms that Kwon does not understand.
It was such a relief for me to hear that from her.
So you guys have at this point started Gchatting all the time. Jess: Honestly, yeah. Something that will never chating. I have a funny story about this. Chris: Yeah, could she read our minds or something?
