Pencils, a friend of two years, is tall, with short ginger hair. She lives with her iPod – it’s like she couldn’t live without it. She is a very musical person.
She lives by a strange philosophy;

If you’re optimistic you are always disappointed, so be pessimistic, that way you’re either right or pleasantly surprised.

which, true though it may be, can be quite depressing. But she isn’t always depressing- Pencils is also a truly funny person, in her own sarcastic way. Sarcasm really cheers me up. No seriously.
The thing is I’m not sure why she is such a brilliant friend, but she is. Pencils is brilliant at art and she could quote Supernatural word for word. She listens when she wants to and then gives her input. She’s great the way she is and nobody should change that.

PS She earned her name in ikea, the home of the free pencil.


To understand my blog properly you should probably read this

I have lots of friends, but five of them are particularly important to me.
These people have code names to protect their privacy. Mango, Pencils, King Julian, Bertie-Moos and Sloth. I mentioned all of these people in a post before (In the Eyes of a Past Acquaintance: My Friends and I) but I shied from giving them names.
The list of names are a bit strange but they are inside jokes. Old stories about jazz music, ikea, birthmarks and cows. These are great people and have influenced me quite a bit. Some of them over time, but others I have known for two years at the most…
I will have other posts to describe them so look out for that.
