So in the mythical but great year of 2008 my band had just recorded our 5 song EP, a band that i talked my way into with little or no musical experience a band that would later grow to be pretty locally huge, but i’ve digressed sorry. Now i was in vegas adding people on myspace and networking my band because i mean thats what people did right? and i came across her profile now at the time i was a baggy jean wearing nappy headed fat awkward kid. I always had friends, but i was just a joke hahaha so i text her like crazy and end up inviting her to a show. She comes (she missed my band) and we talk for a little i was hella awkward she leaves to go to a party and that was it lol we text after and i compliment her or whatever it was all very weird idk sorry. anyway fast forward a couple weeks and i finally work up the courage to tell her i like her and she basically breaks my heart and says she doesn’t like me back i was so bummed my young teenage heart was crushed i was ready to cry and die all at once but i continued to be her friend. eventually some months later after many hang sessions and after her birthday i bring it up again and she tells me she feels the same way and i asked her to be my GF and we dated for 6 years. now that you have some backstory the reason i think this was her best test of character was because she was this very hot 16 year old scene girl and i was this very fucking lame kid at the time and i feel at 16 for her to take a chance on me was a big deal especially since her family didn’t want her dating but she still seen something in me. ive had a problem my whole life with people passing me by and overlooking me not exactly on purpose i suppose, but for whatever reason in my personal life and sometimes even professional life people think im extremely one dimensional, but thats not the case and i urge you to talk to anybody that has given me the time of day and they will tell you that im amazing in every possible way and thats because i work so hard to be rounded. the whole point is she gave me the confidence to be myself and she like many people like to say i changed their life but the truth is her and all these people change me just as much as i change them and i can never thank her enough for taking a chance on me and giving me 6 years of her life even though it didnt work out and shes crazy as fuck most of the time she is still a good person who helped shape me, i hope she finds happiness and no matter what happens ill always be thankful. people are always so scared to take chances with me it still happens today. thats why this scenario always resonates in my mind. but yeah heres my story or whatever like its okay to take a chances on things and people, the biggest risk has the biggest reward right? their is no greater injustice in the world then not letting someone prove you right or prove you wrong instead taking the safe route and just making up your mind and deciding for them.
