    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...

    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.
