“Disco Tits”

I think it was around April I got a message from Jazz. Her living situation had just taken a drastic change, “can I come crash for a bit?”. Straight off the bat I knew it was gonna be more than a bit, but I’ll admit that even I didn’t expect it to turn into a full six month stint.

Me and Jeffels are quiet types, and Jazz has energy for more than the both of us. Though this always made trips to the Cathouse extra fun.

Her birthday, a birthday *month* by the way which included another month worth of build up was especially testing. Though when you see how genuinely happy someone is, it’s hard for it to really be an issue.

It’d be easy to think every day would be the same with Jazz, but that couldn’t be any further from the truth. Every day is different, there’s always some mad story, or a little present from her day out that catches you off guard.

For all her energy, came a fair share of down time. I think this is something that may surprise even some of her other friends, Jazz goes from being the loudest person in the world to the quietest little creature imaginable that just wants nothing more than to walk to the park with her hoop and climb a tree away from everything.

Being a photographer, living with a model was pretty rad. We could shoot anywhere we wanted. Be that in the flat, down the road, in the city, or going on a proper adventure, we were always prepared to get shit done… assuming we weren’t taking the day off, drinking chocolate milk and eating crumpets. Which, to the detriment of my health, happened pretty often.

Oh, and listening to Disco Tits. A lot.

Yesterday, Jazz moved to Liverpool. While she’s away I’ll for sure miss the chances to go for quiet walks out and visit wee cafes on a whim.

Jazz is undoubtedly one of the most chaotic people I know and it can be fucking infuriating trying to make sense of some of her logic, but she’s also one of the best humans I know. She’s dragged me out on adventures when I didn’t think I wanted them, and has helped me focus on the things I’d lost sight of, and for that I’ll be forever grateful.

I’m sure it won’t be long before I visit Liverpool.
