30 Days Thursday: Day 10

Discuss your first love and first kiss.

   Hmmm. Well, let's see. My first kiss had nothing to do with my first love. I guess you would count this kiss, haha. It was when I was really young. I can't remember what age I was, but I was in elementary school. My neighbors, a family a house down from us, were my best friends and every chance we got we were together. Their names are Charlie, Whitney, and Clint. Charlie (a girl) was my oldest brother's age, Whitney was my age, and Clint was a couple of years younger than us. All of us kids were stuck to each other like glue including my other brother, Cody. So, you might be able to guess that we all had our first kiss from each other. That sounded weird...My oldest brother had his first kiss with Charlie, Cody with Whitney and I with Clint. It still sounds weird, haha.

   It was just one of those things where kids tease each other and pressure you to hold hands or peck on the lips or something. It was really silly and thats why I don't know if it counts.

   Now, my first love. I think that happened in 8th grade, and coincidentally was someone I just blogged about the 30DT before last. Yup, it was Jacob. I just remember being completely infatuated with him. At the time I was going in the wrong direction in my life. Yes, I was only in 8th grade, but here where I grew up not a lot of kids are into normal kid things. Ninety percent of my friends (the ones I hung out with the most) were into getting high, drinking, and fighting. I sort of followed along with that, because a big part of me didn't really know anything else...until I met Jacob. He showed me different music, stuff I never heard before. It made me think about the world differently. He also spoke differently than the people I surrounded myself with. He was/is very poetic when I was used to slang. He really taught me a lot without even trying.

   I think that's why we can still be friends. There is a mutual appreciation for each other that isn't forced. We don't have any real mutual friends pushing us together. It just is. And although I still believe it was actual love then, it grew into an admiration and appreciation and a definite friendship that will last forever.
