    hey

    im sorry, that is very unfortunate

    why can you only call each other once a week? perhaps you could schedule a few more calls in!

    something else you could try is writing letters to each other. letters work well across different time zones! you could send each other photos too of what you’re up to and it will give you something to read and look forward to when you cant call each other!

    perhaps you think of some things you could do together when you meet up! it will give you something to look forward to. something like a picnic or a sleepover perhaps? :)

    in september you will have lots of other classmates to hang out with after this very long break. even though it may not be the same as being with your best friend, at least you will have some people to hang out with every day!

    let me know if you want help or advice on anything else in particular. i hope you are ok! it is a very difficult time, i’m sorry you are going through this <3

    hi, thank you so much, i will start writing letters but it might take a bit to get there.... the reason i can only call once a week is because they have a really busy schedule, well, in the mornings they do stuff and most aftrnoons they do stuff so i can only call every week. i try not to think too much about it because it makes me cry but reading this makes me smile so thank you

    stay safe
