Time is all I have to give but you can have it all
A few days ago I posted a blog here that thanks my best friend Mandy for everything she has done for me. In that post I mentioned several other people at the beginning and one of those people was my other best friend in the entire world…
That’s her, Nikka Shell and yes I really am picking her nose. Nikka is someone I met after I started my current job and who was polite to me from the get go. She has listened to me when she should have never spoken to me again, helped me with situations that I didn’t think I’d make it through and has taught me more about the world and myself than almost anyone I’ve ever met.
Nikka you taught me the importance of pinky promises again, something I had lost from my childhood and taught me that it’s okay to believe in those fairy tales I grew up with. You were there in my most times of need this year and you were the one that looked into my eyes when I was hurting the most and stayed there with me to make sure I was okay. I don’t deserve to have you in my life but I’m so thankful that you are. I’m sorry that I didn’t live up to those first impressions you had of me at the beginning of this year and I’m sorry for every time I’ve made you mad, it’s more than I have ever intended.
Most people will never know what it’s like to have a friend like Nikka and that’s saddening to me. She forgave me when everyone told her not to. She stood by me while my family and I buried my grandfather, and she has taught me that it’s okay to be me and not try to hide the nerdy person I am.
Nikka, I made that promise to you all those months ago, that I would always be there and I meant it and always will. I just hope you always want me around. I love yew Nikka and I swear I’ll repay you for everything one day, I pinky promise. :)
A very special thank you….
It would be so easy to write a long blog post about all my incredible friends. I have so many these days, more than I could possibly name, Nikka, Justin, Gordon, Webb, Griffith, Shealynn, Edgar, Randy, Anthony, Jimbo, etc etc. My family is always there for me too, my point is I love you all dearly and if I left your name off that short list it’s not because I forgot you it’s just that the list is far to large to name everyone. Each of you make each day of this life easier and don’t think I don’t appreciate every bit of that. But that’s not the reason your reading this today…
This is my best friend Mandy Conn (along with myself and her dog Abby). Now anyone that knows me personally knows that I think of my friends as much more than that, they are my family and that’s true but Mandy is something so much more to me. She’s always there for me, even at times when I probably don’t deserve to have someone like her there. She understands me like no one else in this world does. It doesn’t matter the problem I face that day, Mandy will always be there to listen, no matter how dumb it is. She forgave me for one of the dumbest decisions I have ever made in my life and never looked back. 14 months ago she stuck her neck out for me to help me get a job that honestly she had no reason to do for me at the time because of how I had acted in the past. She’s taught me so much and I’m forever thankful for that.
Mandy, I know you’ve heard me say it a lot lately, but thank god for you. Never be afraid that I won’t be there again because I swear I need you way more than you could ever need me. Don’t be afraid that you’ll hurt or disappoint me because that’s impossible for you to do. Never think that you can’t talk to me about stuff, because I tell you everything.
I’ll go through this life with my head held high and you by my side. We’re gonna be disappointments but we’ll do it together. We’ll probably need someone to help pick us up at times and I know that we can be the one that do that for each other. I know that I don’t have to worry about someone being there, no matter how ridiculous of a situation I get myself in I know you’ll be there, not because you have to but because you care, because your an incredible person.
Mandy, you have given me courage to take everything this life has to throw at me with a real smile and not a fake one anymore. Those very simple words that you said to me have echo’ed in my head ever since you have said them. “You’re good Burr. You’re going to be fine, you’re going to be okay. You’re my best friend.” I’ll always remember those words Mandy, promise.
You’re more than just a friend to me Mandy. You’re more than just family. Mandy you’re my hero. Thank god for you, I love you. :)
Reavers of Harrowfold
Last night our group of adventures traveled to Harrowfold to help against the band of mercenaries known as the Iron Circle. I learned to NEVER put a horse in a encounter with this group of players because they must keep it alive to the point that players were hurt and the healer healed the horse the also took out the band of Bullywugs from Toadwallow Caverns. But we had to stop there as it was 2 am and some of us had to be awake at 7 for work.
Our group is a interesting, we have Nephit Nightleaf, a Eladrin Wizard that’s obsessed with creating doves and glitter with his magic and does back flips whenever possible.
Sturm, the halfing rogue that will steal the clothes off your back.
Thor, the human Cleric that rarely talks who is Lawful good, or as the rest of the party calls it Lawful Stupid.
Our most interesting character is Bahlen, the dwarven fighter that is convinced he is the king is everything and never forgets to remind everyone on a regular basis.
It’s honestly a really fun time to run it for these guys, I love it.
It was a success…
Over the last couple evenings I have ran my FIRST ever D&D game. Nothing too major, just the Red Box Pre-made game with three of my friends. I’m not comfortable enough to build my own games yet but luckily there are a ton of pre-mades that none of us have ever played or ran so it’s all new stuff to all of us.
I was nervous beyond belief sitting in the chair behind the screen with everyone looking at me. But my players indicated that I was fairly decent at it for a first go and I personally thought it went better than I thought it would have on my part. They succeeded on their quest and now I’m reading through the DM White Box adventures to set them up for next weekend hopefully. I think with time I can perhaps figure this out and we can all have fun doing this stuff.
Haven’t been on here in a long while but I think it’s time to make a return.
Nothing really interesting in my life has happened, except I attended The AP Tour a few days ago. We went for VersaEmerge but I ended up liking Conditions, which I got to meet two of the band members afterwards, Versa was so damn good I started thinking about a tattoo idea devoted to them when I got in the car to go home(A Vulture on my shoulder, any fan of the band will know why), I See Stars were actually alright, I liked them a lot better than I ever figured I would. D.R.U.G.S. was actually better than I would have expected, Craig Owens can put on a show if nothing else the man can work a crowd and we didn’t stay for Black Veil Brides.
Even though we had a fun time and the bands were amazing there’s one little problem, when at a show if the band asks you to participate then do it and don’t get mad when others around you do, it shows appreciation to the bands and it’s fun. That’s what a show is all about the interaction as much as the music, otherwise just listen to a CD in your car.
Oh and Sierra, from VersaEmerge, singing was better than her CD, TALENT.
Day 1 – Very First Video Game
I got the Mario Bros Duck Hunt combo with a Nintendo as a gift for being born, true story, so I guess you could say that I was “doomed” from the start.
I remember I used to get mad that I couldn’t beat Mario Bros and I would go into a rage if that stupid dog laughed at me for missing. He was such a jerk. =P
