The happiest birthday to the most selfless and reliable friend I’ve ever known. When we would drive around aimlessly in high school, listening to albums in silence with the windows down, I realized something that is just as true today: your simple presence is just as comforting as your words, which are sharp, hilarious, and brilliantly curious. Your insights on the world are refreshing and you are hard working to a degree that many people will never achieve. When I tell people about you, I tell them you’re my best friend from home, but the truth is you’re more like home to me. Here’s to another year of coffee conversations and a new sense of direction (much less aimless than our explorations). I love you Tyler! See you Friday!
