7. Its a current term of endearment for close friends.

Even HuffPo wrote about it in 2016

Finding Your Squad As an Adult

These days, it seems it seems like everyone has something to say about female friendships, doesn’t it? Tribe, squad, whatever you want to call it — we’re talking about friends. I’m not sure why we’ve complicated it so much.

This past fall, a close friend of mine got married, and it reminded me of how interesting finding true friendship can be as an adult. The bride - we’ll call her Julie - and I became friends a little over two years ago when I first moved back to California from the east coast. She had gone to high school with my best friend from college, who virtually introduced us before I had even boarded that one-way flight to SoCal. Julie welcomed me into San Diego and her life without batting an eyelash, taking me in sight unseen into her friendship circle.

There’s something to be said for someone who can open their life and heart to new people, even when we’re adults and already have a complete social circle.

From our very first meeting, I knew Julie and I would be good friends (interests included wine and snacks - winning). In the short timespan leading up to her wedding, she’d transformed from a stranger in my new city to one of my very best friends.
