I guess we weren’t really meant to be friends. In college, I really did enjoy your company. We were so chill. But then, I dunno, after college, everything felt so dreary. You are right, I am an asshole for the things that I said. Maybe I should do better with how I word things. lol so pretty much, i should do better at disguising myself as an asshole. I just sought to hang out with you one time to get this huge burden off my chest. I didn’t even necessarily want to regain some kinda friendship that we had. Now after talking/hanging out with you a few times, I am coming to the conclusion that we can’t be friends. You have this definition of what a friend should be. I just can’t bear the random stuff that you tell me. lol oh man. Why must I get so easily annoyed with her?
My friendships aren’t probably as strong as they should be. Which I could see why. To be a friend, be a friend. Simple as that.
Hey this is Andrew. Lets cause a ruckus in the world and do silly shit together and share awkward moments together and lift each other up in the dark moments and good moments. I want to take a step outside of my own mind, and inquire about yours. Because I want to be a friend.
Happy Holidays to you all, by the way.
I can’t wait to listen to all my new records.

But I guess ultimately what scares me about marriage is where do you find this person? You know a lot of times, most successful relationships, people meet through work, school, mutual friends.
But what’s most interesting to me is when people just meet in life, just randomly.
You know, I have a friend, he got married, I asked him like “Hey, uh, where’d you meet your wife?” He was like “I was leaving Bed, Bath & Beyond. I was looking for my car - I drive a gray Prius. I saw a different gray Prius, I thought it was mine, I walked up to it, I realized I had the wrong car, but I bumped into Carol, we started talking, that was that”. That’s unbelievable.
Think about all the random factors that had to come together to make this one moment possible - this one moment that changed these two people’s entire lives:
First off, this guy has to live in this particular town. Then he has to get a gray Prius. Then he has to need to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then he has to go to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond. Then there has to be another guy who also lives in town, also drives a gray Prius, also needs to go to Bed, Bath & Beyond, also goes to that particular Bed, Bath & Beyond at around the same time. Then they have to both park somewhat near each other, my friend has to leave before the other guy leaves, see the wrong Prius, think it’s his, walk up to it. Then the woman, Carol, needs to be near the wrong gray Prius for a million other random reasons. They bump into each other, they start talking, their entire lives are changed.
That’s the most amazing and terrifying thing about life.
It is, cause the amazing thing is that at any moment, any one of us can have that moment that totally changes our lives. You could be leaving the show tonight, bump into someone… it could change your life. You don’t know, that could happen.
The terrifying thing is… what if we’re all supposed to be at Bed Bath & Beyond right now?"
