Watching Apollo 13 makes me miss Angie so much. I really miss her and just driving around, its weird to think some of the best times I had were when she would pick me up in her car and we would just go to Homer’s Ice Cream. Just thinking about everything we’ve been through together makes me so happy she’s never left my side.
Our friendship in photos, hahaha!
It all started with a catcus…Yes, a cactus.
Angie thought it was a good idea to look at the cactus while it was sitting over the vent in our 7th grade science class. Me, wanting to be the nice person I am, thought we should move it because it was in a stupid place to begin with. But Angie decided to look straight at the cactus as I was movie it over the vent. Causing a piece of the cactus to get stuck in her eye. ————->
I love her so much! Because even after having to go to the nurse to get her eye washed out (which she still brings up today as being one of the worst experiences of her life) she still talked to me and we’ve been friends ever since.
<———True friendship. Someone who stays friends with you even after they get a cactus stuck in your eye. Actually becomes friends with you after you get a cactus in their eye.
I don’t know where I’d be without her. She was there when I went through some of the hardest times of my life. She never ceases to amaze me.
Tod: Copper, you’re my best friend.
Copper: And you’re mine too, Tod.
Tod: And we’ll always be friends forever. Won’t we?
Copper: Yeah, forever.
There’s no one I’d rather spend my friday nights with than Angie just watching Disney movies.
Thanks to Cash Colligan I have a new outlook on life. Like Cash said, “You have the chance to live as many lifetimes as you want in your life.” Sometimes you have to do what you need to do even if you hurt some people. (This was my response to Cash and everyone, “ i need to start a new chapter…as much as it might hurt other people I have to do it for me.”)
One question that really hit home for me personally was when Cash asked, “How would you be different if you started caring about yourself and did things for yourself?”
Honestly my answer has to be: I would be happier than I am at the moment. I would alway be doing what I want to do instead of what my parents want me to do.
I know it would kill my parents to hear that but I don’t know how much longer I can live this way. Old habits are slowly creeping up on me and I don’t want (for not only my sake but for my friends and familys sake) me to ever go back to how I use to be.
I always had this ideal picture in my head of my future. I would go to school and go into the career I’ve always dreamt of. But I’m not like everyone else, most importantly- I’m not like my sisters. I need to take my own path and figure things out my own way.
