So while talking to a friend online... I had to post our conversation...It reminded me soo much of how I fell in love with graff in the first place. . . And sometimes remembering why and how you first started, makes you fallin love with it all over again.. Just as if it was any other friendship and / or relationship.

me: well i first got into graff when i was in 6th grade. and i been writing since i was 9th , 10th around there
