I just have to write this somewhere.

Tonight I found out a friend of mine died. I met her on an internet forum for a band we both liked 5 years ago. The fact that I never met her face to face doesn't really matter. For a long time she and the other members of that forum had a very profound impact on my life. Her name was Monica and she was only 22 years old. She was funny and intelligent and for a girl so young had a very mature personality (even if her humour was somewhat immature at times. She named her cat "Miss Booger Cakes").

That forum is long gone now and I feel the need to put this in writing somewhere, so here it is. I have no grand eulogy for her, so a link to her art will have to speak on her behalf.

22 is too young.
