I wasn't terribly close with him, he was more of an acquaintance really, but I'd known him since 7th grade, and we were always real chill. We were both on the wrestling team in 8th grade and he was in a bunch of my classes all throughout highschool. I think I only saw him once or twice after we graduated high school, and he seemed to be one of the only people out there who disliked Facebook.
Anyway, motherfucker partied too hard I guess and died from alcohol poisoning/(drugs?). He was going to Virginia Tech, and was always a really smart kid, gifted actually. It's such a waste, can't believe he's gone.
I always expected to hear about him in like 10 years for doings something awesome or possibly lulzy. It's crazy, I haven't even been out of high school for two years and I'm already seeing people take their own paths in life, and in this case, his path just ended.
Hope you had fun while it lasted man
