mrsamclaflin Woohoo! It’s my birthday somewhere in the world. Though I’ve just worked out… flying from the US (where it will remain the 26th until I leave), I land in Fiji on the morning of the 28th, but like 10 hours later? I literally fly through time, but miss my birthday. How sad. But then it is Fiji, so, I’m still smiling. #happybirthdaytome
Happy 31st Birthday Samuel George Claflin! (June 27, 1986)
So this is it. You are scored on my heart, Clark. You were from the first day you walked in, with your ridiculous clothes and your bad jokes and your complete inability to ever hide a single thing you felt. You changed my life so much more than this money will ever change yours.
Don’t think of me too often. I don’t want to think of you getting all maudlin. Just live well.
Alex, your friendship has brought glorious technicolor to my life,
it’s been there even in the darkest of times and I am the luckiest
person alive for that gift. I hope I didn’t take it for granted, I think
maybe I did. Because sometimes you don’t see that the best thing that’s
ever happened to you is sitting there, right under your nose. But it’s
fine, too. Because I’ve realized that no matter where you are or what
you’re doing or who you’re with I will always, honestly, truly,
completely love you.
When I was in high
school, I was a bad singer. I mean, all my early acting was musical
theater, and my first ever show was ‘Jesus Christ Superstar.’ Everyone’s
familiar with it. I played priest number 3 and sang so out of tune that
it’s not even funny.
“You deserve someone who loves you with every single beat of his heart, someone who thinks about you constantly, someone who spends every minute of every day just wondering what you’re doing, where you are, who you’re with and if you’re OK. You need someone who can help you reach your dreams and who can protect you from your fears. You need someone who will treat you with respect, love every part of you, especially your flaws. You should be with someone who can make you happy, really happy, dancing-on-air happy.”
