What does friendship mean when you are in your late twenties?

What does friendship mean when you are in your late twenties?

Robyn Spice, 26

After years of education, from nursery all the way through to a postgraduate degree, I was so unbelievably lucky to spend almost every day surrounded by a number of incredible friends. It wasn’t until very recently, starting a career as a freelancer, where I spend hours on end alone with my thoughts, that I have realised how valuable it is to have a supportive group of friends.

Without knowing, I took for granted the laughter and constant support. I realise now as silence ripples though me, as we’ve all had to ‘grow up’, how lonely life in your late twenties can often be. I had never prepared myself for the day I wouldn’t see my friends.

This short poem and film was inspired by a long weekend trip to Austria. Never again will I take for granted the time spent with a friend.
