how socks affected who i am today

My Defining Moment  

I'm not truly sure I have a true "defining moment" because I don't have just one single moment that effected me in such a way. That isn't to say I haven't had a moment that led to the progressive changes that made me the way I am now. That moment was in grade nine at camp NGWEDWE when I wore socks to bed. You're probably wondering how on earth wearing socks to bed could be a defining moment but it's actually very simple because that's how I met my best friend. See my friend felt wearing socks to bed was extremely odd. To be honest quite a few of my friends feel that way. My friend seems to like weird people however because that's when they decided to talk to me. Of course our first conversation was about the socks thing. From there we bonded over similar interests and our mutual hatred for that camp. Though the fact that I bought them candy was likely a bonus. By the end of camp I was sure we'd never talk again, not because anything bad happened simply because often times that's how things happened with me. To be fair to these people who did this I did use to be very pushy and come on very strongly. However lo and behold we're still friends to this day and that likely will not change. This is my defining moment because my best friend has taught me so much. They opened my eyes to the world around me and I've learned a lot about myself as well. If I hadn't met them I wouldn't be anything like I am now. Amazing how something as simple as wearing socks to bed can affect your life so much.  


  1. This is very sweet, I always find is amazing how some things just fall into place as if they were supposed to happen. In my experience the best relationships are the ones that aren't forced, the ones where you just click.

  2. Yay! I remember you at camp, and your clear distaste for being there. :( I'm glad that something positive came from it for you.
