Everybodyremembers. Tumbler is tumbler still a thing. I I don't know. I I abandonedship a while ago, but h, Tumbler man, that was my that was my website ofchoice. That was my crack cocaine as I why why am I always yting? I don'tunderstand. I really don't like. I got a good night's sleep. I've been fineall day. I haven't yawned once soon as I sit in front of the microphoneyawning constantly, but through Tumbler Tumkler was how Imet this person and h. It was through a friend of a friend ofa friend of a friend or something like that, and her name is Whitney Latin WhitneyLatin. At the time her name was Whitney UPTUR. She was UNC gotten married to awonderful man named Devon, Latin who I loved to death. I love that Guy GreatCook, you made me a filly cheese steak...

...casserol. One time when I went over fordinner cious, but Yeah Whitney Latand, winneyLantin is somebody that he met through Tumbler, who I was a friend of a friendwho she then wound up h. We wound up going to lander university at the sametime, and we got to finally meet in person and to say that we just becamethe inseparable best of friends is an understatement. Whitney became h one ofmy favorite things in the world which is she was my concert buddy. We were always going to concerttogether. There was one time in college we drove out to Greenville and went and saw hailstorm play at this bar,and I mean the hailstorm was big at this point. They were huge, but theywere still playing little bar shows and UH. They played this bar show and itwas. It was fantastic and we got to hang out outside after the show andmeet the band, and it was Gr Itas a picture I'm going to throw up here.It's a picture of of me and Whitney with Lizzie Hal fromhailstorm, and it's just that so cot wat such a great night had so much funthat Night Yeah Whitney became my concert buddy. We went to Carolina rebellion together in Twentyfifteen right before I moved Sa. In this moment, together we went to abunch of shows together, Um and whinny. Just is she's such a great great little ball of energy is the wayI can describe it. Speaking of that Hailstorm Concert Hee, so great. So soWhitney is very much an artistic creative person Whitney was making like plushy dollsfor the longest time and one of the first ones she made is one she made forme, and I still have it- and here is a picture out of here. If you watchs onthe video version, if you're not going to put it on my instagram, she made mea little plushy doll of Lizzie Hal and she even put the doll in the outfitthat Lizzie was wearing that night. At that concert, we went and saw h m sawthem together, Um, that's that's just... of the great things about witeshe's, so stink and creative she's, so stinking creative and and so thoughtfuland she's, always looking for ways to just be artistic and and she's, notlike one of those like traditional, like art, major people who you know o were in a boret and and livethe starving artist lifestyle in which, if you do that, that's fine, but sheshe 's she's a practical person but she's just fun. ' It's the way that shesees the world. The way she sees the world is is, unlike anybody else that Iknow, and you know, she's a she's, a youngwoman, who's WHO's had her share of hardships and troubles in life and, like a lot of us, you know the journey.The journey through through romance was a bumpy one. Bought what she met metthis guy named Devon, a guy named Devon, H, Devon, deven's, an interesting guy.I like Devin a lot actually Um. I really do and when they finally gotmarried, it was one of those just like well, it's about damn time already H,Devons Devons, a grey guy listend. The fact the matter is this guy. Let mesleep on his couch and drive all the way to Charlotte North Carolina withhiswthen girlfriend. I guess I don't know if they were engaged by that. Idon't think O so nothing, I think so, but is then a girlfriend um to go tothis like all day, music festivel with her and then drive back like anybodywho's that drusting and that cool with it is is a winner in my book M, butWhitney you know she she's one of like you can't just pin down like what'sWhitney into what are the things Wen he's into Tan he's into freakingeverything: Okay, like she's into video games, H, she's into you, know, N HarryPotter, Um, loves cats, always always said alwayssaid she was going to wind up. Just being a crazy cat, lady she's, like I'mshes, going to be single for himerhe's, going to get a lot of cats. Well, shedid both Sh, she got buried and she got...

Ali cats but she's Ye. She she's intoeverything. I mean you talk about someone who I can always rely on toshare some of the best stinkin meams ever on facebook, and that is Whitney.Whitney never fails to make me laugh. I it even when she and I had our problems'cause. What friendship doesn't go through its own, its own trials, evenat times where? Maybe we were having a fight about something we got over itreal, quick, that's the great thing about a good friend is when you cantalk through the problems you're having with each other and come out of itlaughing. You know so tas we get into a fight with our friends and then that'sit sticks, maybe y? U G! Maybe you get through the fight, but the friendshipis forever changed. You know what I mean. The friendship is forevereffected. Maybe it loses som of its strength, maybe lo it loses some of it.Some of it's fun, O e of it's grandeur that didn't happen with me and Whitneywhintny, and I would have a disagreement. We'd talk it out. There might be a dayor two where we just kind of fumed, and then we come back and we'd speak and wetalk it out. We hear each other out. Usually it turned out that I was beingan Asshole, it happens, T I have a black beltain being an asshole we'd get through it and we'd be forever the better for it,and we' till to this day are the same weird goofy pair of people, no matterwhat, even after all these years, 'cause now it's been God. It's beenseven years since, since you know we finished college, we finished collegetogether. That was such a great thing as we got to finish college together, but to be this long as friends and for ourfriend still be the same something about any time. I talk to Whitney I'mtransported back to those college days and it's like it's ever miss a beat,and I love this girl so much. She is again. She is so much fun and neverfails to make me laugh it. It's...

...withthat fail. One of my fondestmemories. F hanging out t Whitney was just driving to chilis. Wh N we were in college was a drycampus. We just drove the chilis and just went nuts on Margaritas for allfreaking night and then came back to canvus and were just we were justwasted. We were Jus, we were gone. I wound up not going to any classes thenext day, Tha, that's for Damnshire, weare, Wewe Ere, a weird couple offolks, and it was. It was interesting because you know I a very weird nerdy group of friends andit was so great to see how well Whitney really blended in with all of it n howwell she really. You know mixed in with our with our crazy groupof friends and how much fun it was. It was to have her to hang out with,because we could always count on her to just be there. You know what I mean one ofmy first short films that I got to make in college. She was so kind enough tobe a part of, and I loved having her in it, because she did such a good job andit was so great having her there. That short film will never again see thelight of day it's going to stay wrapped up, but that's just fine bu getting to have Whitney as a friendfor all these years and getting to see that she took it upon herself to become asupporter of of the show on Patrioon was was crazy to me that she would dothat. It really just warmed my heart andsolidified. Just what a good friend when he truly is that she was willingto make that kind of a that kind of a commitment that kind of a gesture. Theshow that see that she supported what I was doing. I really did love that abouther hat. She did that and she's somebody who I will always hold verydeeply in my heart they're. You know like with a lot of friends when you'rekeeping them at t e l keeping them at long distance because well you livefive states apart. You know,...

...don't always stay in contact the bestI'm guilty of that, just as is pretty much anybody Listeng to the show I'mwilling to bed. We go a long time without really saying anything to eachother, because our lives are just going into different directions, but thatdoesn't mean that when we don't, when we do talk together, talk to each other,that we don't have a blast, and I always love it. When I get to talk toWhitning, I'm so glad that all those years ago I chose to follow her onTumbler, because if I hadn't followed her on Tumbler, so many amazingmemories and Experiencas I've had in my life, never would have happened, andfor that Whitty Latin.
