One of my best friends is graduating from high school today.
I met her when I was in seventh grade, and she was my best friend’s little sister. I knew as soon as I walked into their house that she was going to be a horrible menace. As a fifth grader, she screamed, pitched fits, picked on her younger sister, and complained about everything. However, since I was unwilling to forfeit my best friend, I stuck around. This girl has grown up, and granted, still has a lot more growing up to do. She still screams, pitches fits, picks on on other kids, but I wouldn’t love her if she was any different. Her personality is so contagious, her heart so warm, and her spirits so high; there are so many wonderful things about her that she doesn’t even realize. I am so sorry that I will not be at your graduation, but just know that I am so proud of you, and that I love you so much. You’ve done such a great job these past four years, and I know you’re going to be amazing in the future. I am so glad to have met a person like you, and know that no matter where you go to college, you will be successful, and all of your dreams will come true.
Lua is one of their best songs, I think. It gets better every time I listen to it.
When everything is lonely I can be my own best friend I get a coffee and the paper have my own conversation With the sidewalk and the pidgeons and my window reflection The mask I polish in the evening by the morning looks like shit
And I know you have a heavy heart, I can feel it when we kiss So many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out trying to lift it But me, I’m not a gamble, you can count on me to split The love I sell you in the evening by the morning won’t exist.
