First Draft of a character sketch
My Best Friend
My friend whose name is Dan-bi is my friend from the high school and I can say that she is my best friend ever. Because she is so special person to me, I think I know about her more than other friends, so I want to write about her this time. We first knew each other as a classmate but we actually became close through spending a long time when we went to Australia as a school excursion in the summer vacation of the first year in high school. I didn’t know about her well before,but, as I was getting along with her there, I knew that she was a kind of person who was very humorous and easy-going. After that excursion, we became the closest friends in the classroom and our friendship remains until now.
The very distinct feature of her appearance is her height. She is tall as a girl. She is about 174 centimeters tall. I don’t know if she is not satisfied with her height but I like her height. Because this height suits her so well, I think it is her charm. Also, she has fair bright skin with a favorable impression of face. So when it comes to the appearance, we may look pretty different. Because I am relatively short and have darker skin. And even in the taste of cloth, she likes simple, tidy, bright colored clothes while I like fancy, dark, layered fashion. Our looking is that different like this at first glance but people get to know that our character and favorite things are alike after some time.
She believes that she can guess a personality of people by their blood types.
“ I can get along with blood type A and O well but I don’t like B because my relationship with blood type B doesn’t go well” She likes to say like this.
Like the blood types,I’ve got the feeling that her judgement towards someone is depending on things which could sound unlogical to me or others. So, of course, I know that it’s silly making those stereotypes through blood types or something like that. But, strangely, I get to understand and belive her as I listen to her interpretation of those things. I think it is one of her strengths making people nod their heads to her explanation. And by the way, fortunately my blood type is O which she thinks she suits well.
Also, She is concerned about her choice of food products unlike other friends at my age. People including me are often surprised by her awaring of ingredients of the many foods and considering those when she is buying something to eat. I have seen her interested something unusual many times before and I like those tastes of her which seem somewhat distinctive.
But what I like most among her characters is that she is open-minded and she can be honest about her feeling to everyone. Although , there were times when we had a frustration between us because of confrontation between her openness and my own character, however, because I respect her character and even belive that this is the character which I want to have, now we learned how to consider each other’s feeling and that’s how we keep remaining as a best friend to each other.
