  1. GREAT TOPIC! really enjoyed listening to this one. one thing I would like to add is how you can have a friend with only one common interest that bonds you so closely. even though you are so different besides that one interest you find yourself liking things you never thought you’d like and vice versa. it’s pretty awesome!
