"I love you. And I can't be your friend anymore..." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sitting there in my very unromantic office, I had just experienced one of the most romantic and whimsical moments ever, but I didn't know it. He was my friend, my best friend, and I didn't want him out of my life but I was scared... scared of heart break, scared of pain and scared of being rejected by the only guy who truly knew the real me.

A guy who may not be perfect, who may not have a palace and probably won't say "I love you" 40 times a day... But wait for a guy who will say it in spite of his fear, deeming you a greater reward than
@qthomas1990 helped me out at Whittier school today for their S.T.E.A.M. event, talking about Playa de Plástico and teaching young artists/environmentalists about creative ways to re-use and reduce plastic.
