A tribute to my dearest friend

I will miss you.

A tribute to my dearest friend

I am heartbroken. You were my first love and my best friend. I just saw you a few weeks ago and we exchanged pleasantries and said Merry Christmas. Though we had gone our separate ways the past few years, I have only good memories of you. I can't believe you're gone.

Hearing the news of your passing yesterday sank me to my knees. You were only 33 years old. Something tragic happened on New Year's Eve that can never be erased, and I will never be the same. You will always hold a piece of my heart.

We were only 12 years old when we met. We were thick as thieves and had so much fun together. I remember driving past your house countless times on the way to mine and you'd be outside and we would talk forever. Time stood still when we were together. I remember our talks on the phone, all the silly pictures we took, and telling you my deepest secrets. I was looking through my yearbook the other day and saw that you had taken up an entire page just for yourself. You told me that I would always have you no matter what. I cherish what we had and those memories will live on. The past 20 years I have loved you, though our lives went separate directions in the past few years.

Rest easy, my dear friend. You will always live in my heart.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
