    Trying is all there is.

    .. Things aren't not as good as it's supposed to be. I was born to take a more difficult path. Is there still salvation in the end of the road? i dont know, for now.

    There's a defining moment

    that separates being hopeful and getting desperate. That moment is compromise. My heart may burn for someone I've yet to meet, but I will never settle for less, I will never let myself be with someone I don't love more than anyone I've ever loved before. And I expect the same.

    Hey Universe! I will be hopeful

    for a change ^_^ After weeks of travelling across the country, I was able to reflect on the lessons I have learned from my mistakes and look into how I can sustain my enthusiasm for what is yet to come. I realized that my happiness does not depend on only one person, but it has...
