I'm beyond grateful that Jake has given me the opportunity to join Grim Garden. I've always helped him and Mack with small things as much as I could. Although, I never expressed my desire to join up with them, because I didn't feel like I had much of a place. I also had no confidence and was afraid to let my friends down and become unreliable. So, I silently wished that they would one day ask me and continued on assisting them in whatever way I could, whenever I could.
The passing of Mack was probably the worst thing I've ever had to go through. I know it felt the same for Jake, and many of our other friends and families as well. It was a devastating blow for us all, and for Grim Garden. Over the next few months Jake scrambled trying to deal with grieving and holding the company together himself with what little help he could muster at the time. Leaving him little choice to picky about it. I still kept my mouth shut about wanting to join, however I took a more direct interest and approach to helping Jake now that the situation was getting more difficult.
I don't remember what day it was, but I'd call it the best day of my life. Jake finally asked me to be a part of Grim Garden. My life changed. I felt a strong sense of purpose and surge of confidence and motivation that I had never felt before. It's been a few months now and I couldn't be happier. There's nothing I love more than spending all my time with my best friend pursuing our dream. I know Mack is happy about it. I just wish it could be the three of us. Regardless, we move forward. Things are coming along really well and the ideas are flowing like crazy. We have big things in store. For the first time in my life, I'm excited for the rest of my life.
