the scariest thing is that there are actual women in the world attracted to men who rev their engines at stop lights
This has always been one of my favorite quotes. It’s by C.S. Lewis
Honestly, today was the worst day of my life, saying goodbye to my friend of 16 years Graeme. I can’t believe he’s gone. It didn’t seem real until I saw the police guard and the coffin being driven through it today. Fucking devastating. Such a rad, rad person, so nice, so genuine, so funny. I’m gonna donate as much as I can afford to Beyond Blue on his behalf xoxo
I just love our group of friends from school. Even ones I haven’t seen for a while, it’s like no time has passed at all. We all have each others back. We all care about each other. And god damn everyone is just so much FUN!
But what’s the most amazing and heart-warming is how supportive everyone is of each other during this horrible time. We’re a big group, but everybody is there for everybody else. Yesterday we had an afternoon/night at the pub to celebrate Graeme’s life and friendship. There were tears, many tears, stories were told, memories were shared, MANY beers were drunk, and we celebrated the much-loved person we lost. Graeme would be proud of how we’ve come together, just as we are proud to call him our friend.
I’ll miss you forever Graeme. Thanks for being a great police officer and taking care of the scum around Christies Beach!! Thanks for confirming that I was in the right in road rage disputes!! Thanks for being my first kiss. Thanks for confiding in me about your depression and letting me confide in you about mine. Thanks for being so genuine and nice and funny and honest. Thanks for eating goldfish. Thanks for the other gross things you did during school! And most of all thanks for the memories and friendship xoxo

Writers are forgetful,
but they remember everything.
They forget appointments and anniversaries,
but remember what you wore,
how you smelled,
on your first date…
They remember every story you’ve ever told them -
but forget what you’ve just said.
They don’t remember to water the plants
or take out the trash,
but they don’t forget how
to make you laugh.
Writers are forgetful
the important things.
