Inspirational through my formative years

Found AFI right around the time Sing the Sorrow came out, but instantly loved most of their discography up til that point. I was about 13 or 14 at the time and joined the Despair Faction. Spent lots of time on the forum and met my friend Chelsea there. We’re still friends to this day, and both ended up moving to CO in our twenties. My mom drove us to Pensacola to see them perform and it was so great meeting new friends and hanging out in line before the show. Always fond memories!
