FLY LOVERS FLY, ON THE ROAD TO GET MARRIED!

The great Romantic poet Lord Byron once said, "Friendship is Love without his wings!" As I stood atop the Empire State Building exactly 6 months ago today, I realized that I didn't need wings to fly. I proposed to my best friend and the love of my life, Annie Marie Raczko, and it was perfectly clear to me then - as it still is today - that her friendship and love will always lift me up and never let me down. True love in the form of a best friend is the definition of eternal bliss. Annie, I love you more today than yesterday, but less than tomorrow. My love for you has only grown since you said, "Yes! Yes! Oh, my God, YES!" I can't wait to marry you. Happy Half Birthday! A&F 7.25.2015

MERRY CHRISTMAS!


Jon Lajoie - "Merry Christmas Exclamation Point"
You're the dude from high school that I see at the gym
Or the friend of a friend or a second cousin
You're a co-worker I sometimes each lunch with
You're one of my many acquaintances

You know Christmas is about spending time with friends and family
But just because you’re not in one of those two categories
Doesn’t mean that I won’t still do something special for you
Cause Christmas is about giving so here’s what I’ll do.

I’m gonna send you a Christmas text (Christmas text) (Christmas text)
I’m gonna send you a Christmas text (Christmas text) (Christmas text)
I’m gonna send you a Christmas text (Christmas text) (Christmas text)
I’m gonna type Merry Christmas Exclamation Point and then press send.

Maybe I’ll just copy and paste it (From a previous text)
Well it’s only two words I’d might as well just type it (It’s complicated)
If you’re thinking about calling me to thank me oh please don’t (That’s not how this works)
Texting is as far as this relationship goes (And keep your in box brief).

I have way more important people in my life, you're not even in the top 50
It’s not that I don’t care about you – yeah, I don’t really care about you
But it doesn’t mean that I won’t still do something special for you.

Cause Christmas is about giving so here’s what I’ll do...
I’m gonna send you a Christmas text (Christmas text) (Christmas text)
I’m gonna send you a Christmas text (Christmas text)
I’m gonna type Merry Christmas Exclamation Point and then press send.

I don’t care enough to call
But I don’t not care enough to do nothing.

I don’t care enough to call
But I don’t not care enough to do nothing.

So I’m gonna type Merry Christmas Exclamation Point and then press send.
Merry Christmas Exclamation Point and then press send.
Merry Christmas Exclamation Point and then press send.

And to all of my non-Christian friends, I will text you...
Hey, dude, what’s going on?
We should totes hang next week.

2013


 2013... It was a banner year. We sang. We danced. We laughed. We cried. We reflected. We celebrated. We saw movies. We went to shows. We played dodgeball. We worked. We lived. We learned. We said hello to new family and friends that will enrich our lives in the years to come. We said goodbye to loved ones that will never leave our hearts. I watched my sister, Katelyn, and her husband, Mark, give birth to a beautiful baby girl named Olivia! I received news of another baby on the way from my brother, Matthew, and his wife, Maureen! I also saw my brother start his dodgeball career, which resulted in not one, but two championships in his rookie year! We should have won our 2nd consecutive BP Championship too, but those plans got interrupted. I went to the hospital. My mom, Patricia, went to the hospital. Sometimes you need a reality check to realize the important things in life. I love you, Mom! I don't know what I would do without you, and I hope I never have to find out. True love got a date with destiny! On June 27, 2013, I asked my best friend and the love of my life, Annie Marie Raczko, to marry me. I proposed on her golden birthday at the top of the Empire State Building as our families met for the first time. I gave her a ring and she gave me forever. That day will not only be remembered as my favorite day of 2013, but as one of the greatest days of my life. Some days you wish to remember. Some days you wish to forget. No matter what, you should be thankful for all of your days. I am. Thank you, 2013!

RIP Paul Walker.


I totally understand and respect what some people are saying about Paul Walker's death in relation to our soldiers, policemen, firefighters, and other public servants that die everyday and go unnoticed - and they along with their contributions to this planet should be recognized and celebrated. However, Paul Walker being a celebrity should not diminish his contributions to this world. There are plenty of worthless, drug-riddled celebrities that don't do shit with their fame and fortune to make a positive impact on this world; this guy did. He formed the Reach Out Worldwide organization to help people all over the world following natural disasters and helped with countless other charities and philanthropies. He was a good dude, and while there are plenty of other people that live great lives of nobility and honor and do not receive the same memorial that he is getting right now, it does not make it wrong to celebrate the life of a man that entertained millions and more importantly served as a positive example of what celebrities should be doing with their powerful influence. Beyond just being an actor, he was a model humanitarian. We're still celebrating and immortalizing James Dean how many years after his death? Paul Walker had a stronger body of work in film and gave more time and money to humanitarian efforts. Also, unlike Dean, he wasn't even responsible for the reckless driving that claimed his life. I think it's only right for people to take a moment to acknowledge Walker's legacy in the wake of his passing, and reflect upon their own contributions to this world. R.I.P Paul Walker.
