There are some people out there who
are genuinely great people. Sometimes it is easier for me to pick out
the negative in others. It was impossible for me to do that when I
met Brendon John Collins. He was beaming with beautiful qualities.
After a few days I came to adore just how silly, loving, and
ambitious he is.
For a grown man
Brendon is the silliest I have ever met. My co-workers would crack up
when they found the all too familiar post-it notes Brendon left
laying around. Scribbled on them were, “Pumpkin pooter puss nutmeg
spice,” or other words he made up. I never know what is going to
come next when he walks into a room with his mischievous smirk.
Sometimes he will just screech, “pumpkin bear,” in a high pitched
voice. My audience favorite is the ‘raptor’. Tilting his head he
runs toward you with his toes pointed outward. His tongue slipping in
and out of his mouth like the large reptile is his potraying. His
eyes bulge. He screams in his best dinosaur voice. As he gets closer
he points and bends his index and middle fingers. His arms and hands
hanging like hooks he pretends to slash whatever is in front of him.
Everyone who has had the pleasure of seeing the ‘raptor’ always
requests it. He never fails to make me laugh.
significant thing about my boyfriend is how loving he is. He goes out
of his way to make everyone around him feel entirely loved. Animals
love Brendon. Sophia, his cat had her kittens on his lap. She
obviously felt extremely comfortable with him. Volunteering for the
Spaniel rescue he took care of many dogs. If their teeth were in poor
condition he would make sure their teeth got brushed. He would be
very gentle with dogs that were shy. Loving each one of them just the
way the needed to be. Brendon has always made it clear to his family
how important they are to him. Jeffrey, his father is having surgery
on his foot in early March. Without hesitation Brendon took a week
off of work and bought a plane ticket to Washington D.C. Whenever his
dad is going through a hard time he is there showing his support. He
never fails to do the same for his younger sister Casey. For one
thing he is invariably there when she needs him. Casey phoned Brendon
last year about a man harassing her. Brendon hoped in his car for the
5-hour drive to Southern Virginia. He arrived at her high school
before the last bell had rung. He had a talk with the guy harassing
Casey, he gave her a ride home. Only then to get back on the road,
returning home in time for his commitments. Certainly I feel the
comfort of Brendon’s love. We met early last year. I lived in San
Rafael. He lived in Washington D.C. We racked up long distance phone
bills and traveled back and forth. I flew out to spend my birthday
with him. The early morning came when I was to fly the 3,100 miles
back to San Francisco. Parting from each other was always sad. It
felt like the worst option. “I am going to give you a ride home,”
he concluded. Two and a half days later we both arrived in California
together. Being loved by him always makes me feel remarkable.
ambitious, Brendon is always striving to better himself. At 15 he
beat a nasty heroin addiction. Isolating himself from his family, he
had been stuck in addiction for a few years. He knew he was worth
more and fought for a better self. After detox center he went into a
program for a year. Now 7 years later he shares his experiences with
other teens. Hoping his experience will help others. More then
anything he wanted to play music. He is so ambitious he moved all the
way across the country. His band was going to move too, but never
showed. To most that would be extremely discouraging. That didn’t
slow Brendon down one bit. He was just more determind, doing
everything he could to progress. He does not give up.
Brendon has so
many wonderful traits. I know I am biased because I am his
girlfriend. His family and friends are very fond of him. Anyone who
spends a few hours with the guy will feel the same way. Brendon John
is an incredible man.
