Happy Little Life: Phone a friend


Julien Magloire, writer

One of the most important necessities of life is friends. They always have our backs when we need them.

When I feel down or lonely, my solution is to simply to call a friend. They’re always there to pick me up and put a smile on my face.

Unfortunately, it seems that this generation has given up on calling. Rather than taking the time to have a full conversation and hear a friend’s voice, they choose to send a quick and easy text with a few emojis.

After a long, stressful day at school and a few hours of homework, I’m usually drained. I find it comforting to call a friend and talk for an hour or two.

So, even though it might feel a little odd at first, try to call a friend this week. You may be surprised by how much hearing your friend’s voice brightens your day.
