So, as a little kid, Gus got to experience the pleasure of writing freely. I have all of his written work from the first grade, as well as his early writing from Pre-K and Kindergarten. It is interesting to analyze Gus’s early written work with all his other writing to think about as well. I see patterns in his writing. From the moment he began writing, as a child, until the day he died, Gus mixed reality with make-believe to express his feelings whether they were playful or sad.
What stands out the most to me when I read Gus’s early stories is how so many of them are evocative in the same way that his lyrics are.
In honour of the five year anniversary of Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1 today, the talented Lil Peep fan art artists have created a plethora of beautiful work commemorating the album.
We had one car. It was a 1992 Nissan Sentra that my mother had bought for us brand new. Johan could walk to work, while I had the car for errands and the kids.
