The First Impressions Project #2 // Aimee

hello yes don't i have such a cute fren

Sometimes, internet friends become in-person friends, and it's the most wonderful thing ever. 

-----

Honestly, I could not tell you how I started talking to Aimee if my life depended on it. Neither of us can remember. We've been reading each other's blogs for over a year, but I feel like it was really only in the last six months that we started to talk a lot. (Aimee, if I'm completely wrong here please forgive me.) This began, as many fantastic internet friendships do, through Twitter. We soon after realized that we had a mutual love for writing letters, and Twitter developed into snail mail. Then, through a rather complicated chain of events, we realized that we were going to end up within a couple of hours of each other, and The Great Fren Meetup was planned. 

It was the absolute most lovely thing.

Last month, I posted about getting to hang out with Mary Shelley. A lot of you seemed to enjoy this post, which I dubbed The First Impressions Project, and so I thought that I'd bring you along for my adventure with Aimee. (Because you all need to see what a fantastic human she is.)

Aimee is one of the coolest, most genuine humans that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Some people you just click with, and Aimee is one of those people. I learned lots of things in the four hours that we got to hang out. I learned that we have the same Starbucks order. (A java chip frappuccino, in case you're curious.) I learned that she is the absolute QUEEN of Pinterest, and if you are not following her, you need to be, because her boards are so aesthetic, I can't handle it. I learned that we both have a habit of sitting in chairs any way but the traditional way. I learned that she is much better at taking selfies than I am. And I learned that she is just overall an absolutely wonderful person. (Even though I already knew that tbh.) Aimee is one of the most passionate, driven people that I've ever known, and I love that about her. She told me about her different projects, and it was honestly the coolest thing to listen to all of her amazing ideas. You're going to see her novels in a bookstore one day, I guarantee it. She is honest and straightforward and blunt, but she is also so super kind. She has an endless list of book recommendations, and talking stories with her is one of the most fun things ever. She is so encouraging and will get super excited about your stories with you and for some crazy reason get mad at you when you're being mean to the lovely characters. She will also then discuss the best forms of hidden knives with you, so she has no room to talk. xD I could ramble for ages about how unbelievably awesome Aimee is, but we'd be here all day, so I will just say this- I am so thankful to have her as a friend. She is such a lovely human, and if you don't know her, you are missing out. I love you so much, Aimee! ♥
