Alex Conine, my best friend, took his life on July 14th, 2012. I want to remember everything about him.

  • Meeting him at Fishy Park on 07/27/2007
    • He was dating Sara,and I thought his fedora was just so cool.
  • His terrifying driving
    • When we all did a Chinese fire drill in his Volkswagen van and he turned left when the door was still open; I almost flew out while Zach shut the door. We lost a boot.

and things that i plan on telling those who follow me

  • don't shave your whole body. you will end up having to continue for the rest of your life, or else be really really hairy.
    • example: that one time you shaved your toe or your nipple or your stomach and now there are random hairs that are really long and dark.
  • don't promise anybody that you'll love them forever, because you won't.
    • on that note, don't make promises you can't keep. period.
      • this means most promises.
  • you need to keep all the things you think somebody will make fun of your for having, even if you shove it away in a box
