Today I celebrate l'anniversaire de mon meilleure amie, Sweetbreeze. TheCourageOfHobbits
. Tomorrow I start at my new school as a sophomore. And today, I try to think back to when I was randomly searching on Youtube for some warriors auditions. Yet, I came across a Clan (which I would eventually be fantabulous leader of, by the way) and, as Crystalclaw, became friends with a shy little oddball named Sweetpaw. I must have been in the sixth grade, so I suppose that means we've known each other for nearly four years now. I never knew what great friends you could make over the internet and none have compared to you, Sweet. None. I know that you are USUALLY *coughcough* here for me at all times even though I blank out and don't get online and I am a generally sucky person. Your nickname defines your personality and I find myself stupidly grinning at the screen a lot when you respond to whatever atrocious comment I made the moments previous.
I chose this picture for we have never grown up. We know each other's names but we confuse ourselves with different nicknames "CALLIE/ASHLEY/CRYSTAL/DEER AHH" and sure, once I ate a cherry that tasted like it had been plopped in the corner of the Sweet Crystalline Basement for thirty years, and maybe someday we will clean that imaginary basement and my cat will play with whatever cherries we may encounter. I cannot wait for the day we actually meet each other in person and I cannot wait to hear the awkward silence there will be between us after we say hi. Because we have been behind screens foreverler. These terms and ideas can only be created by those who are yet to grow up, so close your eyes but keep your mind wide open and brace the world as the one-year-older Sweet you are today!
I'm so hyped and inspired!
