Good-Bye En Masse...

I realise there is still a few weeks of school left, but I figured I might as well post this now. So here we go, in no particular order...

Asay- You're a very nice guy. I have enjoyed getting to know you and being able to hang out with you these past two years. (wow this kind of sounds like a eulogy) I'll admit there have been times where I've just wanted to throw you up against a wall and smack you around because you were being annoying, but then I remember how annoying I am, and that you have probably had the same urge from time to time... annnnways. Just... thank you for making me laugh, and giving me a shoulder to lean on when I needed it. You've been a good friend.

Cameron- You don't read my blog, so you'll probably never read this. But I'm going to do it anyway. Here's some advice: It sucks being a Park Bench in a crowded place sometimes... people are going to use you and sit on you, birds are going to crap on you, and smelly bums will most likely end up using you as a bed; however, with every defecating bird, and vandal there will always be those who will be grateful for a place of peace and quiet to turn to during their own troubled times. (now for the cliche moment) Thanks for being my Park Bench (pun completely intended... by the by) ;)

Tasha- Good times, great memories. You have been permanently, and violently branded into my memory... that's a good thing. You've taught me how to be brave and showed me how to be spontaneous. You've also showed me the imprtance of trust, and how easily one can place trust in the wrong person. I'm sorry if I've ever violated your trust, believe me it was unintentional. You've been one of the best-friends I've every had. And even if we don't see each other ever again I'll always remember you (seriously, how could I ever forget?) and consider you a friend, just remember to just continually love PEOPLE man! I know that both you and Chase wanted Emily to be President, and I'm fine with that, but I won't let you down. I promise. And I never say anything that I don't mean. :D

Cathy- I'm not going to pretend that I'm not jealous of you... You're AMAZING. You are seriously the strongest person I've ever met (figuratively and literally). I'm also not going to pretend that we were close buddies. We never really got to hang out much, and never really had the time to get to know eachother as well as I would have liked which is a total shame, but regardless, you've always been a role model of sorts for me to look up to through high school. You're beautiful! And you know what... thank you for being nice to me. I wish we could have known each other for longer, and hey shakespeare competition next year at SUU...eh? eh?

Sousa- "Photo-Op! *Fuhkink!*" We're cool. (hahaha! Wouldn't that be sad if that was the only thing I wrote to you?) You've helped me through A LOT of shit man.("Caramel?"), as well as prevent me from doing things that were really really stupid, you've also been, almost literally, the only person who has never abandoned me, as well as understand me when no one else could. And I appreciate all that more than anything you could possibly imagine. The great thing about you is you're a born leader and you know it, and you're never afraid to state your opinion and that's awesome I have no doubt that you are going to grow up to be great... Never stop fighting the fight, right?

Mette- All I have to say to you is this- You are waaaayy to hard on yourself. You try so hard to please everyone that sometimes you forget to make yourself happy. You are kick-ass and you've been a good friend to me, and I've taken you for granted. We've had some good times right? I'll never forget the food-fest that I had at your house when I decided to take my emotions out on my body... oh man. Or the time at Thespian Conference when we all fell asleep on those benches and woke up to like 4 black guys!! hahaha. You're cute. Remember that you can't make people happy. All you can do is offer them the option, but in the end...it's their choice. :D

Christopher- You know what I love about you? You are just...such a genuinely nice guy, and just so easily pleased. There's just something about making you smile that just makes everyone around you happy. I'm sorry that I can't really say anything else to you so I can't really make this 'good-bye' last seven lines. Continue being Chris and everyone will love you. And by the way. I fucking loved your one act. It was brilliant! I'm going to miss you.

Ben- You make Emily happy, for that I respect you, because I'm very protective of my friends. You are...well like my favorite person. hahaha!! I think the biggest reason why I'm going to miss you is because you are just... cool. hahaha. I really don't know how to explain it, but I'm going to miss you. You're just great...and you're the only other lefty in the drama Department! WOOOO yay for lefties! :D

Chase- There's a fine line between love and hate... you've straddled it many times. I want you to be happy, but I can't make you... like I told Mette; It's your choice. I wish that circumstances had been different with us. I wish that I hadn't "tapped out", and I almost wish that I had just left things the way they were... me just having a crush on you and you being completely oblivious to it... because I miss our friendship when it was like that. But if wishes were fishes the world would be a slimy mess... and, I never would have been able to have the experience of being a "Henager" with you. Even though I got hurt... It was worth it. I learned a lot. This is going to sound very trite and cliche but, I'll never be able to forget you. I wish you nothing but happiness, and as you go through life just know that there is always going to be someone out there who will love you unconditionally for everything you are (flaws, faults and all). Just... don't be afraid to let yourself be happy.

I'd love to keep in touch with all of you, but I know that probably won't happen in most cases. I wish you all happiness and success in life, if I never see you again. I'll always be here... waiting, and ready to be there whenever you need me. :D

The shoulder will always be here. Call whenever it's needed. I know you won't, but at least you know you can.
