From telling me the story of my birth on my birthday every year, to seeing me graduate this past week, you have always been there for me and supported the decisions I have made. Though I have made some wrong decisions, and you have called me out on those decisions. Those little things you have done for me have molded me into the woman I am today, and I cannot thank you enough for that.

Whether you are making me laugh or cry, you were always there. Through the good and the bad, you always had my back. You understand me in ways I don't give you enough credit for. All you want is what is best for me and though we have had our disagreements about what exactly is best for me, we always are able to figure out a compromise or listen to what the other is trying to say.

No, I don't help with yard work or any of your projects, and no I will not shave my head, but I can promise you this, yes, I will always talk to you about politics or what is going on in the world, yes I will talk and help out whenever I can with understanding you and the world around me. The conversations we have are second to none, some are silly and others more serious, they will always hold a special place in my heart.

You never fail to make me smile, and I hope I do the same for you. You have helped me so much and I thank you for everything you have done for me. Happy Father's day dad, I love you to the moon and back, and no matter how much you bother me, that will never change.

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.
