FINALLY, I'm back!

I'm so, SO sorry that I haven't been online in forever! I've been pretty much everywhere in the last couple of weeks. Let me explain-one of my best, dear friends Jason died over the summer. He was HIV positive and he progressed into AIDS quite suddenly and without warning. After the funeral a couple of my friends and I went to his apartment and looked at his photo albums with pictures of him with us and just broke down. We were putting it back in his desk when we found a note from him to us in his desk. It was always our plan to have a roadtrip to California sometime and travel abroad once we got done from there, and he wrote the note because he knew he didn't have much time left. The note told us to take that trip and dedicate it to his memory. He left us the last of the money he had in his bank account to help pay for it too, and a new photo album to fill. So, that's just what we did.

And it was absolutely amazing.

We laughed, cried, and sang the whole way down to Cali, which is absolutely gorgeous in the summer. From there we flew to England, which was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! London is quite possibly the most beautiful place I've ever been to and just...wow. We went to so many places and I met a lot of nice people, including.........get ready for this.......THE MIGHTY BOOSH BOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They were doing a gig with the band at a bar that we didn't know about and we snuck backstage to see them. They all signed the photo album, they were all SO nice, and yes, I almost fainted! I can honestly say that the past few weeks have been like a movie, so sad and wonderful and unbelievable that it didn't seem real. I never wanted it to end, but now that I'm here I'm glad to be back home. I'm wearing one of Jason's old shirts right now to bed. So again, I'm really sorry that I've been MIA for a while and I'll start to comment on your entries again. I've read a few already. Rose_Melody, Jeremy's being an idiot. And that bitch who made a page about you on LJ? Just ask me and I'll kick her ass. Huwie, I've started making PostSecret cards, you've inspired me! And I have ideas for fanfiction again, so look out! Again, I love you all and I hope that you'll welcome me back!

RIP-Jason McKey, my beloved friend, my companion since childhood, and the bravest person I've ever known, talking about HIV/AIDS awareness and helping others even when you were on your deathbed. No matter how much time passes until my own death, no matter if I get Alzhiemers or amnesia, no matter WHAT, I will never forget you and how amazing you were. I hope that there is a heaven because you belong there right now. I love you, man.
