Distance means so little when someone means so much

Dear Long Distance Best Friend

How are you doing? Yes, I know we just talked yesterday. I know what you had for lunch, and dinner, and your snacks in between. I know that you skipped your 8:30 class, you rebel. Yet that's not what I asked. I truly want to know how YOU are doing.

Since I moved, we don't talk nearly as much as I would like. You are my best friend, but sister would be a more appropriate term. It is so great that even after not seeing each other for a while, we are right where we left off as soon as we're together. Sadly, our time together is now short, and we don't get a chance to indulge ourselves in each others lives like we used to.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I wish we had more time. I wish we could spend every day together like we used to, and have five different conversations with each other at once. I wish I could be there to know how you're feeling. I wish I could be there to help you through the good and bad days, or to help motivate you when you need to get up but are in a deep sleep. I wish I could just be there, instead of simply being on the phone.

I know that changes like this in our lives are normal, and a part of growing up. I know that we are adults now, and that we have other things to worry about rather than who is coming over to who's house in the morning, or if we want to go to the beach or the mall. We can't fly by the seat of our pants anymore, I get that. I just want you to know that no matter how many miles are ever put between us, you will always be my best friend. I will always be just a phone call away, whether you need to talk to me for something important, or just need to tell me about how you dropped your sandwich right after you got it, and that you are traumatized.

I wish you nothing but the best in life. I can not wait to watch you grow and thrive, and be the person you are supposed to be.

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.
