So, I have a friend. Well, I have a few friends, but this friend is special. We’ll call her Bee. I met Bee online (through Twitter) through a mutual love of reading fan fiction, and listening to music. That’s the great thing about the internet, it connects you to people you might not otherwise meet. So, I live in Sydney, and Bee lives in Brisbane. Same country, different state. I can’t even put into words what makes Bee such a special friend, because there is so much, and there just aren’t words to describe other things! Bee has helped me pull through some very dark times in my life, and she has lifted me up to celebrate some wonderful times. Bee never judges, and always listens. Bee is awesome.
So.. last week I paid Bee a visit in Brisbane. It was wonderful. We spent a few days hanging out and just chilling. It was good for the mind, and good for the soul. We also forever ingrained our love and friendship by getting matching tattoos!!! There’s a song by a Sydney-based artist named Jack Carty, it’s called One Thousand Origami Birds. It’s wonderful. It inspired the tattoo. For that, I thank Jack for singing and sharing his music. Bee got hers on her foot, and I got mine on my arm. I love it. So much, just like I love Bee. We each have our own meanings to the tattoos, but a lot of meaning to me is friendship, and battling anxiety and coming out of the battle with depression. The musical notes represent the part of the song that says “Peace Will Come” … it’s to remind me that in all the chaos of life, and in the moment, peace will come, eventually, as long as I weather the storm. I also like that the musical notes end in a smiley face!!!! 🙂
I also got to hang out with another friend, we’ll call her Bale. She’s awesome, too. She made awesome food, and supplied great entertainment. We watched Friends… what better way to spend time with Friends?! There’s NONE!
So, what does that have to do with Motor Oil? Weeeellll… I am going to be reviewing Castrol Magnatec Motor Oil on behalf of SOUP (an online reviewing company). I’ll be blogging about it over the next few weeks, but it got me thinking. Friendships are exactly like motor oil. They help to keep things moving, they help you to not burn out, and they also stick with you, and you need it.
The new Castrol Magnatec Oil has intelligent molecules (ooooo!!!) and is designed to stick to your engine, rather than drain off when you stop the car! Stay tuned for more interesting and fun facts in the very near future!!!
In the meantime, I urge you to listen to Jack sing … magic happens *winky face*
Wasn’t that great? So worth the listen! Go to Youtube and look up his other stuff, too! Click for Jacks YouTube Channel
This was the one pic from the weekend in Brisbane that Bee & I could agree that we looked fabulous….
So whether you have friendships near, or friendships far… treasure them. Always. And remember.. friendships are like motor oil…. they stick with you, even when your engine has stopped!
