I'd like to take a moment to appreciate these four extraordinary human beings, who helped me keep my shit together this hell of a year.
Jeffrey: You are probably my oldest friend, to be frank. Of the people I consider my inner circle, the closest to me, I've known you the longest, and we've really stuck it out, through thick and thin. You are so incredibly caring, and your presence can always put a smile on my face, even through the worst of times. You are an unfailing comfort in my life, who I can depend on to be there for me without a doubt.
Jackie: I've hardly known you for a year, and yet you've become my closest friend. It's been tough at times, but I can say with full honesty that I cannot imagine any reason for us to not be friends. You have cared for me like no other, and never fail to surprise me in the ways you lift me up. There is no partner in crime I would rather drag along on my hairbrained ventures, Watson.
Sasha: I have to say, I've never met someone quite like you. You are an unusual individual and a kindred spirit. I like that we challenge each other, and because of that, I'm not sure I could ever be bored of you. I only met you a few months ago, and yet, I see this turning into a lasting friendship.
Marco: You are a remarkable human being who never fails to brighten my day. Your sense of adventure is a gem in this world of lackluster minds. I appreciate everything you share with me, and I marvel at the person you've developed into. I can talk to you for hours without tire, and every moment of your distant company is a moment unwasted.
Ladies and gentlemen, my ride or dies
