Freestyle Writing at three in the morning. It was either this or Season One of Breaking Bad. I think I’m gonna go watch that now.
Matt and I were on our way to the local sports bar to watch the hockey game and catch up on our individual activities since we last hung out, two months ago a few weeks ago. It was a Friday night, and all I could think of was watching the game, downing a few drinks and being in a good mood, but before we could make it to the bar, we both stopped at Matt’s house for a few minutes, at least until his phone was charged enough to send out a few tweets concerning tonight’s big game. As we sat in the living room and started the night off by drinking a few beers, I couldn’t help but to tell him the good news that had happened just earlier today.
See, the last time we hung out, I was in a terrible place in life, not just from losing my job, or being kicked out of my apartment for being three months overdue on rent, but I had lost the most important thing in my life.

We go back to being friends in high-school, so I was going to make it up to him and myself by getting our friendship back on the right track.
Things had changed since my downfall some months ago. I found a great job, decent apartment and a totally different lifestyle. Matt knew it before I could even tell him, I guess it showed in my body language and energy. The old Keith that I was months ago had died in that shit-hole that is now in my long forgotten past, and now, I am a new man, ready to live with my regrets, accept my shortcomings, hold my head high and walk toward my fears. I was back on track, and I couldn’t wait to tell Matt about all the things I accomplished during that time, but the biggest piece of news just couldn’t wait, I had to let him know in the living room, as he sat by the wall, waiting for his phone to charge.
