… Yeah, I’m totally gonna gush about LD.
January 19th, a few years ago, was an absolutely inconsequential day in the year for me. I honestly would have never imagined then how significant it would suddenly become now, to the point where I simply don’t forget it.
I think there’s something to be said about a person like LugiaDialga when I start taking any opportunity to try to fit as many amazing things about her into a few paragraphs, but for as many times as I’ve made this one statement about her, it’s still yet to be any less true: Since the day I met her in early February 2012, I’ve never had an IM chat, Skype call, or conversation via any other means that didn’t put me in a better mood than I was before. Even when it’s just to tell me her time has been reserved by someone or something else, just the feeling I get from the fact that she even cares to respond to this awkward emotional mess is fulfilling, and motivating.
Today she’s celebrating her birthday, and probably spending more time with her local friends and family than on the internet, as she should. There’s quite a bit I would do, if I could, to be there too, but for now, I’m hoping what I can say on this phone keyboard will reach her. I just hope she knows that if nothing else, she’s perhaps the best friend I’ve ever had in my life.
