Friends When I was at school in my younger days(around 12 years old) I had quite a lot of friends but as I got older most of my friends changed. Im 17 years old now and the people I once considered friends I wouldnt consider friends anymore. It seems that when I went to high school everyone started changing trying to be cool, trying to be cool around girls and trying to be in with the crowd. I remember when I had friends who would never insult each other and have respect. I dont think Ive changed much but everyone around me has, I dont have that many friends anymore. So what about you guys notice a change in your friends as you grew up?
