Expectations vs. Reality

In roughly another 18 hours from now, I will be driving to the airport to pick up my best friend, whom I haven't seen in, oh... NEVER! Words can't even describe how excited I am for him to come! And be here! With me! For the very first time!!!I have fantasized about this for so long, how awesome and magical it would be... or rather, will be... when the two of us meet, face to face. Nothing will be seperating us. Not distance, not time, not a computer screen. Hopefully it won't turn out to be awkward or anything! I don't want to wind up crying happy tears and bowling into him, like this girl:
I just want to give my dear friend a big, warm, loving hug, to show him that I'm real, and to show myself that he's real. We've wanted to hug each other for the last 3+ years... I can't believe we're finally going to get that chance!Past that, I pretty much have little to no idea how things will go from there. He'll be my and my family's guest for a while, so I'm going to make him feel as welcome as humanly possible. I want the weather to cooperate and show him Florida's shiniest sun. I want to introduce him to my family and friends and hope everyone gets along. I want everything to go perfectly... But I know from experience that life doesn't always live up to your expectations. Still, I know inside that no matter what happens this week, we will always be best friends. We have so much history between us... and we're going to make even more history tomorrow.

I miss you Jacoby... But not for long. ^_~

Stop Joseph Kony 2012

Not sure how many people still read this blog, but I'm posting it here anyway.

This 30 min video could change the way you think about the world, and its most wanted war criminal, KONY. If you don't know his name, I guarantee you will in the coming days and weeks. It's being linked and shared everywhere on Facebook. I actually first found out about it from Doug Walker, who is famous for being the Nostalgia Critic.

Please take a half hour to watch this video. It's about stopping a man, a monster, a villain named Joseph Kony. The more people that know about him, the better the chances are of his capture. Get into the know and make him famous. Share with your parents, friends & EVERYONE!

It's official!!!

Next week, on March 14th, I'm going to play host to the best friend I have never met, Jacoby Nielsen!!! I kid you not! He is seriously flying all the way from Utah down to Florida, he's going to hang out with me and my family for about a week, and we are actually going to meet face to face, for the first time EVER!

Words can barely describe how excited I am... I've been waiting and waiting for this to happen. We both have, really. And now that day is finally approaching. The day when we will see each other as real flesh-and-blood people that we can reach out and touch. The day when we can give each other a hug, like real friends do. !_!

I can't believe that over 3 years have passed since I met this guy, who has been a true friend to me ever since I started this blog. I remember it like it was yesterday...
I absolutely can't wait to meet him!!! ^_^ We'll take walks, watch movies together, make and eat pizza, sing songs, write stuff at writer's group, play games... I'll even take him to see the beach! It'll be so awesome!

I promise, Jacoby, no matter what we do, you and I are going to have a blast a week from now! No questions asked. The countdown has begun!

Together at last... I can just picture it now...
