Moving to Florida after living up north all my life was a pretty big change for me. Besides the weather being nicer, I also noticed that people were nicer. Everybody seemed more relax, even cops.
I slowly began to try to adjust to my environment. But even making new friends felt a bit more awkward than usual for me. I just couldn't vibe well with the southern feel. Then I met @geechee_rizzle AKA @future . I had a difficult time understanding him at first due to his deep accent but off the jump he was such a great & fun person to be around that we ended up becoming friends.
I was homesick after about a month or 2. But I'll never forget my first thanksgiving in Florida with @geechee_rizzle . I met so many members of his family. We went to like 4 different houses & ate so much. Everyone was so welcoming. And the fact that he didn't know me like that but still opened up to me in such a way, was touching to me.
Since then we became closer and even ended up becoming roommates at 1 point. We used to go out and get lit with his cousins and friends. We'd party everywhere. We created many memories, some good and some not so great. But we're still here progressing.
Things are different now & I know I don't get to see or talk to you much like I used to. I don't even have much of a social life because I'm so focused on my growth. But regardless of any of that, I want you to know that I'm still here. You're like fam to me & I'm glad I was able to show you NY for your very first time. We'll kick it soon my G, thanks for being 1 of the best friends I've ever had 🙏🏻❤
