It is true. It is honest. It is real. It is close. It is love. There is no fakeness. There is no bad talk behind each others back. It is a bromance.
A true bromance between two guys is something special. It’s not something that can be found everywhere. It’s something that has to be searched for.
Jason Vietti ‘13 and Cody Anes ‘13 both say that they have a bromance. Not only do they describe their friendship as one, their classmates do too: Vietti and Anes won the senior mock elections for Bromance.
They have known each other since 6th grade. Since then, they have become almost inseparable.
It was a bus ride home that their friendship started. Vietti realized that Anes rode the same bus as he did so he started talking to him. A simple bus ride changed both of their lives. It gave both of them a best friend.
“He knows everything about me, and I know everything about him”, says Anes.
“We are best friends forever; we hang out almost every day,” tells Vietti.
They do everything together: talk all night long, work out, play video games. They never get bored of each other, and they know that they can count on each other in every situation.
“I would go into fire for Jason, and I know he would do the same for me,” tells Anes.
Arguments? They don’t even know how to argue with each other.
“We never really argue. The only thing we “argue” about is video games and who is better: XBox or PS3. That’s all we argue about,” explains Vietti.
Both are sure that they won’t lose contact with each other after they go their separate ways to college. They’ve gone through thick and thin, and a true friendship overcomes everything, even long distance.
“We are friends forever,” states Anes.
Vietti and Anes aren’t the only bromance at CSHS. Dereck Sissell ‘13 and Steven Kern ‘13 are also best friends.
They met in first grade, but their friendship started nine years later during their freshmen year. It took nine years to find each other. But now, they can’t even imagine being without each other.
It is a love for acting that connects them; both are very involved in theatre. They have been doing theatre all through high school.
“We are always together and love each other, and we can have fun together,” states Sissell.
“Sweezy [Sissell] is an easy person to get along with,” explains Kern. “We mostly just scream a lot of nonsense at each other, but for some reason we understand what all the nonsense means.”
Sissell and Kern are both sure that they will be always there for each other in every situation.
“Dereck is going into the Army. I’ll write him letters. It will become a major motion picture sequel to “Dear John”, but titled “Dear Sweezy”, tells Kern.
None of them could live without their other half.
A bromance gives each of them a brother and a best friend. It gives them a foundation when they don’t know what to do; it gives them a person they can call in the middle in the night, knowing he will listen to them; it gives them a friend for life.
