True Story About Me & Gravity Falls & Friendship
I’m saying this late at night so most people won’t even see it, but the idea of watching Gravity Falls without Eugene is such a bummer to me that so far I have not tried very hard to watch the new episodes.

I’m not trying to be maudlin or over/melodramatic about it, so hopefully it doesn’t come across that way.
I had no idea when I started watching the show that it was going to lead to a podcast and so many new people and experiences that I otherwise never would have had a chance to be involved with.

More importantly though, I had no idea it was going to take a dude I was pretty good friends with and end up making him one of the best friends I’ve ever had.
In the course of talking about a cartoon he and I got to know each other so much better, and I’m pretty sure it also lead to us understanding some things about ourselves better. I know there were times where having an excuse to sit across from each other and that forum to just talk about what was on our minds and about life and stuff really helped us out. Personally, mentally, emotionally, whatever. It helped.

But the main thing I’d like to say is that I am grateful.
I’m grateful to the show for existing.
I’m grateful to Euge ( adamwarrock ) for wanting to do a show about a show I made him watch and then working so hard and making so many fantastic and fun things happen for us.
I’m grateful to anyone who ever listened or cared or misses hearing from us every week. That is an amazing thing.
And I am very, very grateful that so many of these real conversations and ridiculous moments between me and a friend are available for me to listen to whenever I want.

 
It seems weird to think about it like that, but how often do you get to actually relive memories of times spent with your friends?
To get to hear yourself laughing and having fun and just being in a room with someone you like hanging out with for hours at a time.
That’s unbelievably wonderful when you don’t get to do it anymore.

Anyway, it’s all still around, so why not go give an old episode or two a listen. 
There’s a couple of shirts left, if you want one of those. 
Hell, you can even still buy our ridiculously long fundraiser episodes if all the free episodes aren’t enough.

I don’t know what the future holds, but I hope that somehow, someday it will hold something and that if you’re reading this you’ll want to be a part of it.
Let’s see what happens with life and stuff.
