I don’t think I’ve ever fully explained why Hunter and his music and the Hayniacs mean so much to me. So, since I’ve finished my homework, I’m going to take this opportunity to do so!
The person that Hunter is is the person that I am or that I strive to be. The majority of my guy friends are big partiers and are only interested in things like one-night stands, smoking pot, and drinking heavily all the time. I’m just not like that at all and I’ve always felt strange and weird for not being like that. When I started to listen to interviews that Hunter’s done and just the way he interacts with people, I didn’t feel as strange. I felt like there’s someone else who acts the same way I do and it was such a huge relief. The passion he has for music is so inspiring. He’s inspired me to become more passionate about my writing and I’ve never felt more secure in the songs I churn out. His music has also helped me so much. Two songs in particular: “Faith To Fall Back On” and “Rainy Season”. “Faith” gave me security that I’d been looking for. I worry a lot less about insignificant things because it’s all a part of God’s plan. There’s no use in worrying or regretting because it’ll get you nowhere. Trust in God and you’ll be amazed with what you find. “Rainy Season” has built a sanctuary for me to go to when my parents fight. They haven’t been that bad lately, but it was really bad before. Every single day, they would yell and scream at each other and I had to pretend like my walls weren’t paper thin. That song means so much to me and intend to tell Hunter in person why. I also owe a lot of my current happiness to the fanbase: the Hayniacs. I’ve found a second family in them. They’re ALWAYS supportive and they’re some of the best friends I’ve ever had. I know that if I ever need any kind of support, they’ll be there and that’s such a comforting feeling. Even the people around Hunter are so amazing. Ainsley is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met online. The band are all equally awesome. And who could forget Road Guy! In conclusion, I feel like God answered my prayer when he placed Hunter and all those that came with him in my life. I no longer feel like a freak and I can’t thank him enough for that :)
