note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own. Several years ago, in this same position, I would have searched for another person to attach my identity onto,

Coincidence? I think not!

If you listen to Owl City's songs Dental Care and Rugs From Me To You, you'll know that he loves puns and other such wordplays. He also is on Twitter. So it was that I came up with a clever pun and tweeted it to him. (I must say that the mustache bit isn't original, but it's still funny.) I got off shortly after and honestly didn't think anything would come of it.

(@vivid_writer is my public account I use to reply to people who aren't following me.
I'd use @lovehascome, but my tweets are locked down and I like it that way.)

However, something did come of it.

I got on after my mom and I finished watching Dr. Quinn and absentmindedly checked my Twitter, only to see a tweet from Owl City. He didn't reply to me, but he tweeted this to EVERYONE. 

Somewhere along the line, he must have read my tweet.

I refuse to believe that this is coincidental. 

Thank you, Owl City. You made my day.


  1. Ha! I laughed at that tweet this morning and thought it was rather clever! That must've made you smile like the lyrical deer in the headlights. ;)


  2. That's so not fai. I officially want a twitter. I may just ask for one. ;)


  3. How EPIC! Congrats! You must have been ecstatic. ;D

  4. Sky! You have been awarded:

    PS the comment moderation that I have to type is "thing." They're running out of made up words.

  5. Ha! That's classic. X) I am also a fan of cheesy puns... so, when I saw that you RT'd that, I got a nice chuckle. Makes it even better to know it was (, DEFINITELY) inspired by you! ;) Good plan, not accepting this as coincidence. heehee.
