Friends

Jack Bruggenkamp, of Snohomish, Washington, had an Ischemic stroke due to a blood clot on the right side of his brain, Monday April 25, 2016. At the time of the brain event Jack was traveling alone for work in Los Angeles, 1162 miles from home. He was admitted to Cedars Sinai Medical Center where he remains. The stroke resulted in paralysis on the left side of Jack’s body. His speech is affected but is improving. He is able to stand with assistance and is working very hard on walking. Two days after the stroke, tests revealed that Jack has a “severely leaky heart valve.” This requires major surgery to repair or replace. Jack hopes the surgery will be done at the University of Washington Medical Center, nearer his home. Before valve replacement can happen, Jack will be participating in,...

dear you, I miss you. Like hell. A year ago, you wrote me a letter, thanking me for the past two years, and for the years to come. Then we got seperated and we stopped talking. And at first, I thought I could do it, I thought I could make new best friends and that I would be fine. Truth is. I'm not fine. And I didn't realize it until I read your letter again. My friends now are nice you know, and I can laugh with them a lot. But they don't understand me, and I don't know if they ever will. I miss you so much. My best friend now is amazing, sure, but you were just the best and I can't stand it that we don't even talk anymore. I really want to, but every time I get the urge to talk to you, it suddenly hits me that we're strangers now. You don't need me anymore and I'm no longer a...

Dear Em (Emmalyn), It seems like yesterday when I met your mom. We started cosmetology school two July's ago!!! We were not friends at first but then we became inseparable. I would ride with her up to Butler all the time and we would hang out. Your mom had something happen to her right before she got pregnant with you. I remember saying how her miracle baby would come along soon. And tada next thing I know you were in her tummy. We call you a rainbow baby! Your mom was so happy. Your mom and I fell out of touch after we graduated but right before you were born we got back together. I was so excited you were coming and I knew how happy your mom was. Since your dad and mom came down here I knew she was going to need some help and I did not want her to be alone. I know I'm...

This is an open letter to girls all around, who should know their worth. If you haven't heard it today, you're beautiful and you're worth something. Some days you might be overly stressed or upset but trust me, there is always better days. Wake up early, eat breakfast, put some sugar on your cereal and ignore the scale because you're all beautiful no matter what. Love yourself unconditionally, do what makes you happy. Want to wear some extra eyeliner today but you're scared that people will judge you, do it, do you and flaunt it. There will be times where you will be stuck on a boy,...

We've been friends for almost 2 years now. It's short but i had fun being your friend. You're fun, and cool besides that we both are The Strokes fan and you're the bestest guy friend I've ever been friend with and you're the only guy friend I've ever shared my meal with. We started out as strangers when we were studying in matriculation before you started being friends with one of my best friends. I didn't like you the first time, to be honest. It's just because i was rooting for my friend to be with this one guy. Everything was fine between those two until you came. Silly me. Just like highschoolers. I'm sorry for that. You meant a great deal to my best friend. She loves you a lot. You're so weird. I don't understand you. When i said that you're so messed up, don't get me wrong. I pity...

Dear you know who you are, it took a long time for me to come out of my shell around you. You're imposing and I felt small, my knowledge was nothing compared to you but eventually we became friends, good friends. Imagine my surprise then, when I finally realised you didn't like me. In fact, it seems you reserve your most hateful thoughts and hurtful words for me. My question is why? What did I do to hurt you? I thought it was having given you a short notice about my party, but you're not that petty. You're intelligent and above that. I then thought it was Oxford, you were upset I didn't congratulate you (that's what you say to people) but let's face it, I was one of the first to do so. I guess it really is the jealousy, but you never wanted to date him because that's not you, you just...

I would do anything in the world for you. No matter what time, if you call me or need me to do something for you, I’m there. I got your back. And sometimes, I think that this is reciprocated. But more often than not, I think that our friendship is completely reliant upon my being there at your beck and call to help YOU with YOUR issues as I throw mine to the side. When it comes to the weekends, I’m pretty laid back. I like to go out and have fun but I typically don’t care what we do as long as I’m with my friends and having fun. We go along with YOUR plans. Normally I don’t care. But what about when I want to do something or go somewhere. Then suddenly you’re tired, or you need to take medicine. I lay it all out on the line for you and it’s almost never reciprocated. I’ve seen you at...

For You. You met her online and turns into a relationship. She was too innocent for a guy like you. She's probably different from the girls you've dated. She was often muted but knows how to be sensible. It was a typical relationship with a different story. (Probably the saddest story I've heard) She told us how happy she was when she met you. You said you're from a different country and she's from Europe. She told us how nice you are, how handsome you are and even how sweet you are. I saw how her eyes sparkles whenever you texted her"I love you" and whenever you call her "babe". I've never seen her happy that much. But one day you showed the real you. The naughty one, the playboy, the different side of yours. You ask her to send a nude picture but she refused. She told you she...

Dear Spencer, You know me. We have thought about our future together, how we will always be friends till the end. But, now, I don't know if that is possible. You were the first person to hear about everything, you were the first person I would ask when something is wrong, you were the one that I have showed practically every single raw emotion to. I realize that I was not making a bond with you, I realized that all the things I tell you, reaches to someone else. When I told you about the one that I thought was meant to be, you announced it, you yelled it, and worst of all, you wanted people to know that you knew. Garnering attention with my emotions, just brings much more than you think. Saying that "you do not like showing emotions," like you are proud, but the truth is, there is NO...

Dear Sisters, When you wear your hijab and are rebuked or disrespected please stand tall and respond with calmness. The reason this is done is to make you feel less than human.If you must cry wait until you get home. We must stand up to these bigots and racists. We do not have to take their abuse. Even if you feel alone never show it and do not show fear. This is what they thrive on. We have no control over ignorance but we do not have to stand there and take their abuse in silence. Try to record the incident if possible. Stand tall and stay proud.
