21. Nice birthday gifts. Before I met them I’d never really gotten much birthday gifts ( I’ve already always been the kinda person that always gets close people birthday gifts) but my friends bought me a teddy bear for my birthday and came to my home to hide it in my cupboard after I left for school. Then later when they saw me at school all 4 of them gave me stuff like earrings/rings/ chokers and all that. Explosion boxes too—with my pictures, their writings, our pictures together.

Best friends I could ever ask for. I’m blessed.

23. The Smashing Pumpkins. Before that my taste in music and what I listened to was wholly dictated by my brother and his elitism. My friend really opened my mind and I feel like when I first heard it was when I came of age.

27. Harry Potter. I was in my 20s when the series was released. I figured that it was some dumb kids’ books. He bought me the first four books. When I finally got around to reading them, I was hooked. My enjoyment has outlasted the friendship. I hope that he’s doing well.

I love dive bars. I used to go to them and read. I was reading the fourth book in a biker bar in Northern Minnesota. There was a group of a dozen bikers, all wearing the same vest. The tall guy in the middle yelled over at me, “Hey. What are you reading? ” I yelled back. Him, “Did you get to the part where [spoilers redacted]. And that is how I had a fifteen-minute conversation in a biker bar about Harry Potter. And received several free beers.
