I cannot think of today without remembering two people. Though I never would have guessed it, and I’m not sure they ever actually met, I’ll always think of Ryan Davis and my father in the same breath.
When moving long distance, companies calculate by weight, as more weight means more fuel. I’d…
Like many of the GB community losing Ryan hit us hard maybe even more so for fans like me. I lost my Grandmother only one day after my birthday and a two short weeks later Ryan was gone. In times of unemployment and self doubt Ryan and GB always gave me a laugh and reminded me to look on the up and up. It’s maybe a bit odd to be so choked up about someone I never met in person or even had a conversation with but I know the true GB community would stand by this statement “Love Ryan Davis.”
I can relate directly to what Patrick is saying all of us who have lost someone understand this all to well. They slowly start to fade and its heart breaking but they wouldn’t want us to wallow in grief. Instead they’d tell us to keep pushing the envelope going further and reaching for the goals that seem impossible.
It may seem like at times were forgetting them or even that the burden is lightening. While it seems that way I don’t think its that simple I think they’ve just become more of who we are now then ever before. Ryan taught me a very valuable lesson which is to embrace what you love and never be ashamed of it. Ryan loved the dumbest stuff and was extremely passionate about whatever it was. Something as simple as embracing who you are is something I’ve tried to live by ever since.
I’m no poet or journalist my writing is juvenile at best but maybe my incoherent mess of words will reach someone and pass along this lesson. That life is a jumbled mess but one of the best things you can do is embrace who you are and to let others do the same. Continuing to live better for the loved ones who are gone and doing our best to honor them no matter where we go in life.
I’ll keep moving on because you always believed in me; because your love never ceased. You may be gone but you’ll always be with me and I’m eternally blessed to have been your grandson. No one could have had a more perfect grandmother.
Bad news guys. I wrecked my car today, and It’s going to be setting me back quite a bit to get it off of the lot and to either fix it or get a new one. With that and all my other bills and stuff I’m going to be in the red for a lot longer than I wanted to be. So I’ll to be doing some $10 sketch commissions to help out as much as I can with all my expenses. Let me know if y’all are interested.
Giantbomb is expanding to the East Coast and over at GB a bunch of duders are creating some fun logos. Designing logo’s are always a treat it brings in a lot of the elements I enjoy about design. Here’s a link to the thread with some other great logo concepts.
