    Cynical Or A Realist?

    As much as I believe in love in stories and movies, in real life I don't think two people who genuinely love each other will stay together for the rest of their lives in today's world. It's not even "today's world," it's more that I doubt people actually love each other...

    Fairy Tale's Aren't Real

    Fairy tales aren’t real; we all know that. Little mermaids don’t marry prince’s; their not even real. However we can sign a contract; trade our figures for new outlines. Buy what we don’t have; play the role we weren’t given while forgetting: Shadows will always show...

    Let just say I still believe in Happy Endings
