Sometimes, I wonder how you manage to handle everything that life has thrown at you. From your internal struggles to your relationship woes, I think that you are truly a saint. You have kept a smile on your face and kept your positive attitude no matter what, and I am inspired by your strength.

I know that it's not always easy for you. I know that sometimes you take your time and distance yourself because you don't want to bother anyone or because you think that you will be fine if you handle it alone... but that's not the case.

No matter what I will always be a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, someone you can vent too. You always have someone in your corner. No matter what. You're never as alone as you think you are.

You are truly inspiring.

You push your own limits and constantly work at making yourself better.

You changed my life and you might not even realize it.

You made me take my own health seriously. Physically and mentally.

You have taught me to let go of things that weren't good for me.

You have picked me up when I was at my lowest. I just hope that someday you will let me be that person for you, if I haven't started already.

You amaze me. Your life won't always be easy. It won't always be fair. Nothing will seem like it will be constant but that's what I am here for. I am your constant. I love you for everything you are. And I hope that I can help you find what you're looking for and be the person who helps you with everything you aren't.

You're a wonderful best friend. I hope someday I am able to give back half of what you have given me.

I love you

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.
