    I Don't Stay Down For Too Long...

    I've reached a point in my life where I feel Im mentally and emotionally strong. Sometimes I go though difficult and sad moments in life but I am determined to stay happy and positive. I might be down for a minute but I always get up. No one or nothing can keep me down for long...

    40% Pure Gristle

    That's me.It's an approximation mind you, some might think it's more 60%, while others might say 20%...it's subjective I suppose. I like to think as sensitive as I am, I am at least that tough as well. I can and have dealt with a lot in my life. I really hope the future is easier...

    Well... Let'S See...

    I think I am naturally a tough person and my ideas are just about as original as they can get. When I was little people would just tell me to wait and I'd understand when I was older or I'd grow out of it and I'd look at them like they were stupid. Its always been an annoyance...
