The Bears Den


Sometimes people just want you to fail. 
Except your really good friends. 
I've always known who my best friends were.

There has literally never been a dull moment when it comes to Andrea.

Outspoken, brash, over bearing, sarcastic, emotionless and overall douche bag is some of the words used to describe Andrea from the people that don't know her; I simply describe her as friend. In a world where people want you to be the ultimate yes man and cosign on everything that they say, I tend to go the other way with my friends. If I do something that is stupid or doesn't make any sense, then say so. If I start acting like a whiny little brat that needs to settle down and act like an adult, say so. If I'm over thinking a situation that doesn't require any bit of my attention, then say so. These are the perquisites from the people I call my friends; my friends are straight shooters and nothing less. Everyone in this world can't be your friend, so needless to say I have very few and far in between. Luckily for me I've had friends for years and it's coming up on almost ten years next year that I've known Andrea, that's a friendship built through time and tribulation.


What do you get when you have two Scorpios in one room?

The funny thing about us is that we are probably two of the most similar people you will find in terms of thinking and treating other people. We hold those around us accountable and we don't take anything less than the best from a person. Of course this means that we bump heads often when both of us think that the other is right and won't budge, but at the end of the day we tend to agree to disagree, mentally lol. And those are the kind if friendships that I would rather have when it comes down to it, those that aren't all cosigns and mutual disdain for things or people. I will forever say that if all your friends do is cosign every single thing that you say, then they aren't your friend at all.


Whether we're fighting, joking, talking trash, comparing who has the better TV or wondering why we haven't seen each other in such a long time. Regardless of how long its been since we last talked we always seem to pick back up where we left off with the whole trolling of each other. I also give her major props for being one of the few that walked me through being in the military in terms of support from my family and close friends. She even came through for a visit when she didn't have to. There are a lot of great things that I can say about this stubborn woman, but the only thing that matters is the fact that she represents being a friend to the best possible way and she exudes black excellence. She's definitely a Queen, even if she's from Boston lol.

So it's with a great and humble heart that I bring to you my friend Andrea, aka Bugga Bear, for reasons you'll never know lol.
