I can't believe I've known you for only 2 1/2 years now - it seems like it's been way longer than that. You were the first to IM me way back in early '05 and I don't know if I ever expected it to develop into the friendship that it did, especially one that resulted in eventual plans to travel, cross continent packages of food and CDs and all sorts of other stuff, a UCLA shirt which I'm afraid to wear out from wearing it too often, phone calls which lasted for hours despite dropouts, storms scary looking phone bills and phone card shortages. Whoops.
I'll admit it, I've been a totally shittastic friend as of late. I've flaked on those phonecalls, never sign on, all the rest of it. You've always gone out of your way, though, just to drop me an email to ask how I'm doing, or a post to tell me that I'm being an idiot for being antisocial, which is a good kick in the rear end that I probably need every now and then, haha. Basically, it's been you that's been making sure that everything on my end was all right, even when I was totally lacking in that department. You'll roll your eyes when you read this, more than likely, but I pretty much count myself damn lucky to consider you as a friend, let alone a best friend. I can't thank you enough for being one of the most dependable and honest people I know, especially when I've been a complete mess. I'm really so glad that I know someone so generous, friendly, blunt and sarcastic when they need to be (yes, that's a good thing to me :p) and just outright hilariously wonderful, and I shall stop there before this goes completely mushy and stupid. I hope you have a wonderful 22nd birthday and a fantastic trip.
