Happy birthday Jen! I know it's winter now, and you are hoping to be accepted into that program where you will be sent back over to your beloved Japan to teach English to lucky Japanese students, who I am sure I am sure will love you. I can only hope while you spend time over there, half a globe away from all of us here, that you don't forget about lovely Ohio, from Headlands Beach here where we swam and laughed pretending it was our own destiny islands, to the park near my house where we laughed with Eliza and found our very own paopu tree. I hope you think of the beach, frozen as it is around this time of year, the waves solid as if moment frozen in time to remain still till spring when they thaw. i could not think of a better gift for my best friend than a drawing of her favorite couple, to which the sheer mention will bring a squeal of delight from. I hope this gift will fill you with delight for the year to come, as I think I'll only be able to give a gift this big once. I hope that you'll keep all of us in your heart as you go off into the big world, so until I become old enough to go to Japan myself don't forget your friends and your roots.
Sincerely, your geeky friend~
(P.S, don't bother sending me a thank you note, as I will probably hear your screams of joy from three hundred miles away if you like it)
(P.S.S., will send Advil and earplugs for those around you)
Commission for the sweet
This is a gift for her friend Jen, and wanted to have Axel and Roxas near Headlands Beach State Park (Ohio) in the winter, featuring a frozen lake Erie.
