I just want to say a very very Happy Birthday to a certain girl. A girl who, in the several years that I've known her, has never been anything less than WEIRD. By weird I really mean a mix between intensely passionate, incredibly stubborn, ridiculous, wise, kind-hearted and ____. I don't know how else to describe her but that she is a genuine person through and through, if you know her. Which I hope I do. What I most admire about her is that she is a go-getter, and she handles whatever shit life throws at her in her own headstrong way. She rarely admits weakness.
My strongest memory with her was when we were around 16, and we made a list (definitely called The List, and written in code), of things we HAD to do as a sort of ode to our youth. Half of it was illegal. We forgot about it eventually but I think that it's kind of indicative of who she is. She seizes life (sorry corny) and when you're with her, half the time you are wondering how she could be so naive/hyperactive/ridiculous but the other half of the time is spent having the time of your life and doing stupid things you will almost always cringe about later. In a good way. Of course another small proportion is spent contemplating the complexities of the universe.
So for all the moments of gold I and everyone else has had the privilege of sharing with her, I hope she has a million, zillion more as a certified adult. I don't really even need to hope because I know she will MAKE good moments anyway. If you're lucky enough, you get to share some with her. And if you're even luckier, you might even be able to share the bad moments with her too.
Lots of loving!
