Going to uni means leaving all your old mates behind, jumping in with a bunch of strangers and making friends with them. You completely lose touch with some people, others you see now and again, but your true friends stay with you. You've not only known them for ages, you've known them for ages.

They're not just acquaintances or people you went to primary school with, these people were key to the formative years of your life, but the thing about life is that the formation never stops. Your influences will change and so will you, but if old friends are good for anything it's reminding you to always be you - that's why they're still your friends.
