So, in the spirit of getting back to my blogging roots (and also maybe due to an extreme case of burnout that we will not discuss), the series of friend appreciations is returning with a vigor! There have been several people that have made themselves prominent figures in my social life lately, some of which were expected, and some of which weren’t. In all honesty, I don’t know where I would be without these people, but, in particular, I know I would be a goner without this week’s person.
Ladies, gentlemen, anyone above, between, or beyond, I present to you King the Vocal.
Now, if you exist on MSA campus long enough, you will hear good things about King. This is because he is easily the best person on campus, and I mean that wholeheartedly. I have never met someone who manages to cultivate such a positive environment in such an uplifting way as King does. Being around King is synonymous with being in sunlight, but for your emotions.
A firm believer in karma, a role model for all, and an avid practicer of the ideal that no one should be left alone, King makes it a point in their life to invite and include everyone. I cannot overstate enough how that feels, to be around someone who makes an effort to include and uplift you, especially after you’ve come from an environment where people did the opposite of this.
King’s table is full of people who, just like him, are firm believers in respect, positivity, inclusivity, and second chances, and thanks to King, I am now part of one of the healthiest friend groups I have ever been a part of, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Not to mention the wonders King has worked with just me and them hanging out. After just a couple weeks of friendship, I feel unbelievably better about myself and my life, because that is simply what it means to be around King: to feel better.
So, should any of you ever be lucky enough to encounter this angel of a human being, please take the chance to get to know him. I’ve genuinely never encountered a more wonderful person. Until next time.
Sincerely, someone who’s newly appreciative of the wonders of positivity.
