I know you’ve only ever known your father and me. And I love Jack, because he is your father. But there’s another kind of love, Amanda. One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible. I want you to know that you could have that. I want you to hold out for it.
Am I a fool for doing this? Am I a fool for still trying? Am I stupid for still trying? I really don’t know. At this point, I think I know what I’m doing, but there’ still a part of me that’s not sure.
But, thank you to the person I’ve been talking to this about. You really have been a big help. I’m glad we met & have the friendship we have right now. It’s fun talking to you. Just don’t send me disturbing videos xD.
So, I’ve been talking to someone for a while, not anything serious, just as friends. And honestly, when I met you, you were a very… strange one xD. I mean, we’re not like, super duper close, but we have fun conversations (: You’re a pretty cool person too; fun to talk to (:
Well, yeah, I just wanted to say that, cause I’m pretty bored listening to drunk people sing karaoke at 12:30 in the morning. HAHA
Once upon a time, there was young boy named Albert. Albert was an average kid, who lived an average life. He grew up with a very caring and warm family. His parents taught him how to behave well and how to act in public. But, to Albert’s surprise, tragedy struck. He was separated. For two years he was separated. When he was reunited, things seem to be normal again. But two years later, more tragedy struck, as his loving and caring family seemed to dissolve slowly, but surely. As his parents divorced, his other siblings started to misbehave and act in a strange manner. As Albert went through his middle school career, he pretended to be okay; he put up a front for everyone to see. This was not the real Albert though; the real Albert was somewhere inside of him, hurt… badly. As Albert entered high school, his life started to turn around. One sad thing was that he never really spent time with his father anymore. But as life went on, he made new friends, great friends in fact. But, again, more mishaps occurred and Albert lost his friends. It was because Albert lost those friends, that he gained yet again, new friends. Friends that actually really cared for him. Thankful for his friends Albert is. As Albert entered his sophomore year in high school, he was thinking back on the great summer he had with his friends. They hung out for days on end. Now, Albert didn’t know this at the time, but his sophomore year in high school would change his new life. As Albert tried new things to get him more active, again, he made new friends. His other friends were still there, he just thought that making new friends would be cool. So, when he hung out with his other new friends, he liked them. They were cool, he thought they liked him also. (Albert would find out later on that they weren’t…) As drama and conflict divided Albert with his other friends, he slowly made the transition into hanging out with his new friends a whole lot. He even hung out with them while his guardian was out of the country, staying out a whole lot longer than he was supposed to. Albert felt different. He knew something inside him was changing. He knew what it was. He was scared of what it was. But, his friends comforted him and helped him along the way. Somehow, drama always seems to find Albert. Problems started to arise between Albert and his new friends, and he looked for comfort with his old friends. He knew that he had screwed up, and had learned his lesson (keeping in mind everything else…). Suddenly, tragedy between his circle of friends. He did the best he could to try and help. When he went on a trip with his friends, he got really close to them again, re-living memories and creating new ones. He was happy (or at least he thought he was). Albert wanted to try other things, things that might have not been the best. He did, and was scolded at by some, appraised by others. He really liked it. But deep down, he knew what was wrong and right. As his sophomore year came to a close, he knew what was going to happen. The summer transition between Albert’s sophomore and junior year was a tough one. He had so much on his plate, so much to live up to. During the summer, Albert had done a lot of new things. He knew he changed. He had done some things he knew he would remember forever. As the school year started, he continued with his fall sport, again making new friends. Early that year, he had a break down. All his repressed feelings and current feelings just came out. He didn’t know what to do. He was lost. He was confused. He was torn in two. He knew morally what was right, according to the “law”, but in his heart, he knew what was right. Soon after, Albert had made the full transition. With the help of his friends, Albert was happy. ” A friend is someone who is there for you, who will help you through everything and go out of their way to make you happy. ” Albert thanked his friends for everything they had done, especially his best friend Trina, who without, Albert wouldn’t be the person who he was. In Albert’s words, “Trina, thank you so much for everything, you don’t know how much it means to me that I have you in my life. Me and you, we’re the same, I wouldn’t know what to do without you. Please forgive me for anything I have ever done to hurt you. Trina, I could not be able to live life the same without you. Thank you.”
Now, you might be wondering whatever happened to Albert.
Albert graduated high school, and went to UC Davis, to fulfill his dreams. Twelve years later, he is happy and living with his significant other. Albert still is in contact with his best friends in high school. They all still live in the U.S., and he tries to see them as much as he can. Some of his friends turned out to be soul-mates and ended up getting married. He called it thirteen years ago.
Albert has gone through many things in life, and has learned from his mistakes. But of course, Albert is only human, so he still makes mistakes.
