how to be alive
342. if someone invites you on a scavenger hunt say yes. you may not find everything you’re meant to find except a lifelong friendship.
true story about how i met my college bff @dustinfjohn 18 years ago! we were undergrads who lived in a castle and never more than a hallway away from each other until i moved into a co-op senior year. so many art and random adventures happened with this artist soul—making slope slip and slides by wearing plastic bags, kentucky derby art auction volunteering dressed like jockeys, working together in the dining hall, dropping pumpkins from the suspension bridge at midnight, DIY screen printing stevie wonder shirts, pushing each other down ramps in a shopping cart, zaireeka in the hallway, happy cat mural painting, and once i let him cut my hair. (yes, my life has always been an indie movie.)
tomorrow i’m heading to the east coast to work a gig. super excited to spend time with friends who live far away that i don’t see often enough who always see all of me and love me anyway, as i do them. really don’t know who i would be or what i would do without my friends! it’s wild the amount of years we’ve known each other will soon surpass how old we were when we met.
