Life continuously evolves, but the one thing I can say that never changed from my first entry up to this point is that I still want to – as cliché as it sounds – “do the right thing”. I want to spread positive influence to everyone I care about. I want to make a lasting impression.
I’ve made a few friends recently that have really improved the quality of my life. I don’t mean that they’ve come in and upgraded all of my furniture, I mean in the one way that it means the most to me. They have made me happier and brought energy into my life. Without a crystal ball, I can’t say right now whether they will be around me forever, but the purpose of writing about them in my blog is to thank them. To remind me when I look back at this a bajillion years from now from the skies, that there was a time these girls lit up my world. I won’t call them out, but to remind myself later, I’m just gonna call one of them Juliette and the other one Beb.

It’s interesting when you look back and see how quickly you can become friends with someone. I once had a best friend whom after only knowing for 3 days we fooled the world together into thinking we were childhood friends. After having him been accepted into the group by my other best friend, we quickly formed a tripod. It was an awesome no-homo triangle until one day he just up and left with no explanation or reason. This taught me a harsh lesson in life. You never know what is going to happen, so don’t throw all your eggs in one basket. Accept the moment for what it is and use it to improve your own life, because that is the only life that will stick with you until the end.
So years go by and this year a new person sneaks in. Don’t ask me how because I don’t know how. She just did. It doesn’t really matter how anyways, because what matters is that she did.
In life you’re going to come across lots of people. There are gonna be some you just can’t stand and there are gonna be others that just click. Well, this one Lego’d. I’m not talking Duplo. I’m talking a 2,000 piece interlocking structure of complex art. Fine, that sounds a little too intense or extreme. Maybe you’re right. All I’m saying is we get along and I can’t be any happier to find an awesome friend like her. We complete each other’s sentences; despite the fact that I’m usually almost always completely off from what she was trying to say. She always has my back and puts up with all the retarded things I say or do. And the best part is, she gets along really well with my best friend.
I was going through my old posts when I was cleaning this blog up and one of my old entries caught my eye. I wrote somewhere that I wish I had a girl best friend and it kind of made me laugh. I don’t know if I laughed because that sounded kind of lame, or if it’s because I no longer need to wish that anymore.
So although I’m not your Romeo, thanks for being there Juliette. I won’t be throwing rocks at your window, but be sure to check for my emails next year.
Friends tend to come and go, and I totally understand that you can’t hang on to all of them. It’s life and people drift; nothing personal. I used to get offended by it because I never really understood it. I would try so hard to hold on to as many as I could and get upset when people wouldn’t reciprocate the effort. Today I understand the reality. If we’re friends today and not tomorrow, I get it. It’s just life separating us. I try not to be mad at that, but there are always going to be a handful I’ll wish to hang on to as long as I can. Juliette, I hope, will always be one of them.
