MET AT: MOSI, Tampa, Florida
RELATIONSHIP: co-worker, confidant
MORE: Ann and I worked together at MOSI for about 2 years I think. Over that time we developed a close friendship, and I weeped the day she stopped working there. Over the years she has given me a stream of steady, level-headed advice, and never tired of hearing about my traumas. She is a member of the closest, most affectionate family I know.

MET AT: Jeonju, South Korea
RELATIONSHIP: Korea friend, co-worker, confidant
MORE: Met Kimberly in a group of people one night in a cafe in Jeonju. I don't recall on what grounds we initially became friends, but she has become the friend I've met in the most different places: Jeonju, Daejeon, Seoul, Tokyo. We have always managed to stay in touch despite living in different countries the past 3 years. She has shown great loyalty in some of my darkest times, when no others were around.

KNOWN: Since June 1997 (9 years)
MET AT: FPIRG, Tampa, Florida
RELATIONSHIP: trainer, world changing friend
MORE: I was introduced to Jim through FPIRG. He was my "trainer" my first night on the job. Thus, we dominated some random Tampa Bay neighborhood, pissing on someone's house in turn. Sweet. We met in San Francisco once, and also in L.A. He has given me good feedback on my writing back in my most prolific time. We may just find a way to dominate the world in our own respective ways yet.

KNOWN: Since September 2001 (5 years)
MET AT: Jeonju, South Korea
RELATIONSHIP: Korea friend, confidant
MORE: Aine never let me get too down on myself. She was there for me one time in Korea that was absolutely critical. We met when she moved into the apartment I was crashing at! She has visited me in Daejeon, South Korea in 2002, and in Tokyo in January 2005.

MORE: Steve is part of the group of friends I met while working at the Bookcenter for USF. We became friends over our love of music, all-night gaming, and most importantly Star Wars. My best movie going experience ever was spent along Steve on pavement overnight camping out for tickets to Episode I in 1999. In 2005, I placed all my faith in him to secure tickets for Episode III, which he did valiently. I saw him in Tokyo in August 2005 when he was traveling in Japan with his girlfriend, Anna.
