Fight with kerosene

Alana fights fire with Kerosene.

She is fiercely protective over those she cares about and loyal to a fault.

She will fight you to the death if you mess with one of her people and I believe that’s her best quality.

Alana and I have been friends since my first day of high school. She was a junior my freshman year and was closer to my sister but we found our way to being great friends.

I was a shy student. When I say shy, think of a girl who didn’t talk to anyone the first six weeks of school.

Alana noticed my passion for reading and declared that I was joining the Lit Crit team, no if, ands or buts about it.

Lit Crit, more commonly called Literary Criticism, is a UIL event that eats the souls of the weak. You must read a novel, a play and an astronomical number of poems. After you read for 37 years to prep, you take a test asking questions like President Lincoln, Shakespeare and General Lee had lunch together which is an anachronism…. I digress.

Alana introduced me to one of the best memories I have from high school. She encouraged me to be a part of something and not be afraid to fail.

Since she graduated ahead of me and went to Midland College, we lost contact, but with a friend like her, we picked right back up August 2015, like we had never been apart since we were both students at ASU.

I’ve learned that not everyone is like Alana and if you’re lucky enough to find a friend like her, hold on they will always have your back.
