amazing friends the BEST family.
Seriously I love them all. They inspire me to always be a better person. They motivate me and help me reach my goals that I believe to be impossible. They accept me for whom I am and what I am not.
Seriously though, even the ones I just met, they/ you all welcome me with open arms! Perfect examples, my RTX Family and my Twitch-Con Family. Both times I barley talked to them for a little bit online but as soon I as I met them it was "What the frick is with this handshake? No you hug me boi!" So I guess that's not friendship, that's family. It's not just with me, it's with everyone. Everyone is so accepting and welcoming. It brings a tear to my eye when I sit back and thing about it. I believe what I love most about it, is the fact that it's even when I am back at home. The friendship doesn't end until next convention. The open arms don't close till we once meet again. It's there all year around. Even if I am the one who is hours behind most people. We still make time to talk, to listen, to just care about one another. It doesn't have to be every day. I know we all have separate lives, some more busier than others, that's just life. But We always make time for one another in one way or another.
There's so much more I wanna say but I am terrible at putting it into words.. But in the end..
I love you all.
