This is actually me and my three best friends from highschool. Even after college, we’re still the closest of friends and sometimes thinking about the four of us will make me set aside my fandom feels for some real life feels. When we graduated college, we were faced with the same quandaries that plague the minds of all newly minted adults and for a while some of us (mainly I) got a bit lost. I’ve just recently found myself again, and I’ve realized that no amount of money, power, or prestige in the world could bring me the kind of joy and purpose that I feel when I’m chasing my dreams.
I’m glad my friends all held onto a piece of themselves too as they embark on their futures. We may be poor, mediocre, or just one of the crowd in the future but that’s a chance we’ll take, because I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved us the most when we were true to ourselves.
