As clichéd as it sounds, true friends are really hard to find and you should really hold on to the ones that you have. Ofc, I’ve always known it, but with all the, childish, drama that surrounds the bore that is my life, I’ve really taken to a new level of appreciation of friends. It’s odd, when I think about it, I only have one true friend. One friend that I can tell whatever I want to, that can really help and comfort me when needed and that I can be completely ridiculous with, without feeling a tinge of shame. I thank the Big Chief, times a thousand, for this, because it really was Kismet. I met her in class, and not in any class…CHURCH CLASS! Yes, that’s some fucking random shit. Who would have thought that I would find a kindred spirit in freaking church? Not me, that’s for sure! And I never thought that she would be so important to me later in life, I found her nice and all, but never thought more of it. But when we went to camp, we kind of sought out to each other, since we were the only two fucking sane people there…and we are pretty questionable ourselves. Anyways, we shared a room and just started talking. And just like that, we were set, like lickity split. Seriously, it must have been fate, because it was so creepy how well we clicked in such a short time. I have some freaking sweet memories from that camp, all thanks to her. Actually, sweet memories overall. We went to a concert by one of my absolute favourite bands, and it was one of the best days of my life. We talk all the time and I just realize that it’s not everyday you get a friend like that. But I did. And I’m really thankful for that.
Tune of the day, a beautiful song that captures the purity of a real friendship. There’s a special, not corrupted, innocence about the relationship between two friends. Yah, anyways, here it is:
The White Stripes – We’re going to be friends
Random fact: After shooting the video for Hotel Yorba, there was still some roll left on the tape. Meg was so exhausted from shooting, she fell asleep on the couch. They decided to record the video right there, with Jack playing his acoustic and Meg just resting in a peaceful slumber. The whole video was done in one shot. Jack told the story, on MTV Fuse 100 %, and I just found it incredibly sweet. It brought a smile to my face.
Stay Mellow and Peaceful
