It’s funny how interconnected with the whole world a coincidence can make you feel.
A bit of backstory…
A little over a month ago, back in Chicago, I was hanging out with a girl I had a lot in common with when it came to music. We would email each other a bunch of music to share and for the most part, I would get pretty cool stuff, until she dropped dead. (She’s most likely still alive, but I’m pretty sure that I was just being used as a band-aid because we started hanging out after she just got out of a long relationship and the details here are irrelevant.)
Anyway, one day this girl sent me a couple Matchbox 20 songs, and I’ve always disliked the band, so while I gave the songs a chance, I didn’t watch the youtube video or anything and eventually clicked out of it and went on to the other music.
Fast forward to New Years. The overly long and uninteresting tale of romance that I wrote about the girl that I’ve been seeing for a bit now.
Well, I was talking to her on the phone the other day and it turns out that she’s trying to turn her modeling career into a an acting career. I asked her how it’s going and she told me that it’s not going too well, but she mentioned that she got a fun gig awhile ago to be in a Matchbox 20 music where all she had to do was “be mean.” She sent me a link and lo and behold it’s the same video that my music friend sent me.
I’m not saying that there’s a reason for the coincidence or anything super interesting about it, but I will admit there’s a beauty to it. There’s something fascinating about human interconnectivity and how we sometimes cross paths.
A month ago a girl who’s company I really enjoyed sent me a video that had another girl in it. Next month, I’m enjoying the company of said video girl while other girl ignores me for who knows what reason.
