I will forever cherish the memories and laughs we shared together.

An Open Letter To The Friend I Lost Along The Way

"Then I'll forgive, I won't have to forget all the good things about you." - In A Song by Hunter Hayes

Hey old friend, it's me, someone you used to know. It's so strange to me, how we don't even know each other anymore. At least, not the way we used to. Now the only knowledge of each other we have is the superficial things we post online.

I hate the way our friendship ended. It was sad, dramatic, and we both got hurt. Neither of us gave the other the respect we both deserved. We said things that we couldn't take back, and nobody was benefiting from the way we were treating each other. We stopped being friends long before the final blow hit us.

I know it was for the best, that we were better off walking away fro each other. But sometimes I miss it. Sometimes I'll be scrolling through Facebook or Twitter and see something that we used to laugh about and I think about sending it to you. But I don't. It's been too long. I can't even remember our last conversation.

I miss you. I miss laughing with you. I miss our endless inside jokes that were the product of the many years of friendship we shared. We were a blast in a glass. I miss having you around. You are so positive, a people pleaser, with a strong mind and a true heart of gold.

I thought you would be one of my forever friends. We were supposed to have those long FaceTime calls from our dorm rooms on distant campuses. We were supposed to be at each other's weddings. Then our kids were going to be friends and make as many happy, silly memories as we did.

I guess that just wasn't in the stars for us. It's been hard, but I've accepted it. The universe is an unpredictable and mysterious force. If our paths are meant to cross again, I have faith that they will. Until then, I can only hope to God that you're doing alright, that you find your forever friends, and that they realize how lucky they are to have someone like you in their life.

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.
