Hey Malik, you beautiful man you…we missed you- BAL


Dear Malik,

 Heyyyyyy, so….not sure if you remember me but we met at this cabin/glow stick retreat and I THOUGHT we hit it off really well after spending the night discussing social justice and inequality and how we all just need to work harder to strengthen the sense of COMMUNITY that surrounds us. COMMUNITY, you said. This dude is deep, I thought.
I’m also not sure if you remember that yesterday morning was quite miserable, rainy and cold. I heard you were coming to NP and literally spent HOURS yesterday trying to find a babysitter. Do you know how hard it is to get a babysitter at 5:30 in the morning? And how expensive it is? AND during spring break? I literally had to find a guy on Tinder at 2:30am and HOPE he’d still be there passed out by the time I got home. (Thankfully he was – I’d actually swiped yes on his face before, weird second date).

Anyway, I showed up because I thought you would be there. COMMUNITY, you said. What defines community more than November Project?
Community is that feeling at 7:31am that your day is already so awesome you’re not even sure how you’re going to sit in a chair for 1 second without yelling “DUUUUUDE WHY IS EVERYTHING SO GOOD!” (Even if you just spent an hour in the rain, BY CHOICE.) Community discovering, regularly, that you have an incredibly awesome group of amazingly positive YES PEOPLE who love your city and want to do everything fun all the time…and loving life because of it. COMMUNITY, MALIK.
So here’s the point, MALIK….some parts of this story are true. And some, well…
But here’s what I want you to know. What WE, the November Project Baltimore COMMUNITY want you to know:
Malik, we missed you this morning.
Love forever best friend,
Emily and the rest of a sad, but hopefully positive NP.
