Tonight was Open Mic night here at Wilf's Restaurant on campus at Wilfrid Laurier. Almost every week my 2 friends play there, one them you knowing, Danielle, and our friend Mark. They consider themselves a band, and I think their a great one. One song I love of theirs is Washing Machine. It's just really unique and just great. Anyways while I was watching them on stage, I just got this sudden thought, have I lived my life to the fullest? I know, random thought. But watching them play and doing what they love the most, have I been doing the same? I still don't know if I know the answer or not.
What I'm gonna do now is, everyday I'm gonna do what I love the most, which is; one my photography and two keep learning the guitar.
Which by the way I got more photos to show! My two friends needed shots for their future album coming soon and asked me to take the photos, so I can show some pictures and the rest you can look on my fan page, Jouwsma Photography on facebook.
Having friendships is probably one of the most important things you can have in life. Your friends are there for you when in your lows, when in your highs, there for every memorable moment or achievement in your life. I'm so happy with all the friends I have in my life here at school and back at home. But I just wanted to take this time and remember a friend I lost about 2 1/2 years ago. Going into grade 12 Stratford lost a soul. Ryan Albrecht. He was loved by so many of us and it was heartbreaking when we all heard the news of what happened to him. Til this day we all miss him.
"It's kinda hard with you not around
Know you're in heaven smilin' down
Watchin' us while we pray for you
Everyday we pray for you
Till the day we meet again
In my heart is where I'll keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I need to proceed
Strength I need to believe"
RIP Ryan. See you soon.
The next time your doing something in your daily life, just live your life as you were not living tomorrow. Because you never know what can happen or what you can loose. So live life to the fullest.
