Breaking The Distance

Making friends on the Internet is quite risky, but sometimes it could lead to the best of friendships. In most Internet friendships, people always seem to have a conversation to talk about. Since the friend is somewhere else, and they do not live by you, it is always easy to strike up a conversation.

Making Internet friends is a really easy thing to do, you just need to be aware and careful of who you may be talking to.

The first Internet friend that I met was Christian Akridge. In 2014, I saw his videos on Vine from a friend. I knew that he had many followers and he was pretty famous but I thought his videos were really funny and stupid so I followed him. After around two weeks, he followed me back. When I saw that he did, I messaged him about how his videos were funny and he answered. We started a small conversation and it escalated from there.

At the end of 2015, I got tickets to see Christian. My parents, of course, did not know who he was or what he did, so I had to show them everything of his.

In January of 2016, I went to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with my friend Brandy and we booked a hotel. When we got to the hotel, I saw Christian. I yelled his name and he recognized me, and we ran and hugged each other.

I still keep in touch with Christian and see him every other month. The worst part about our friendship is that he lives in Texas and I live in Pennsylvania.

It is very weird to think about how I am friends with someone who has a very high social ranking, but it is a cool feeling.
