This is where I place the bright (my melodies) and the dark (my maladies). These are the things that make me smile and laugh, the things that inspire and provoke, and the things that cross my mind at night.
isn’t it weird that you can have friends but also have no friends at the same time
In Finnish there’s a kind of a distinction between this. “Kaveri” refers to a casual friend who you can hang out and have fun with, while “ystävä” is a friend who you can have deep and meaningful conversations and a strong connection with. Because we Finns have to make this distinction to not give a wrong impression when saying “I’m his friend”.
