    Very Wrong.

    NEVER tell a determined person that they can't do something. They will prove you wrong. VERY wrong.

    This whole year I've busted my ***. But this semester I started working on a technical paper and it made me lose focus on everything else. In the end I didn't even submit the paper because some of the data wasn't so good and kind of contradicted some parts of my claim. Sucked. My...

    Determination is a huge quality.

    Sometimes I feel I have lost my touch...but maybe it is just me and my moods.It is awesome to go for what you want and get it.Hateful too when others with no effort at all get what you had been working for so hard...but oh well,maybe it wasn't meant for you coz better things...

    Following Through

    I have a special place in my heart for those that stick with things. Those that don't give up and let anything(or anyone)keep them from completing what they aim for. When things don't go as planned they continue on their path and don't except defeat. Gotta love that quality!
