    There's so much going on in my head right now.

    It's so hard to know what path to take, who to trust and what changes if any to make. One thing is I do know; I want to live life to it's fullest before I die.

    Maybe Someday

    But then I guess that's half the fun, watching your life unfold.  I thought my life would be a straight road, that I would finish high school, get a job, fall in love, get married and start a family.  I didn't have any idea what was in store for me.  Still haven't married and...
