    Why the hell should I care about what other

    people have, it doesn't mean that they're actually happy with it. I used to envy people who's had their father in their lives but then I saw how some of them were and realized how lucky I was

    What Really Matters

    Sometimes I think about people and what is it from life they truly matter. Is it the things they have? Is it their social status? Is it what car they are driving? As a Christian, I know material things do not matter at all, what truly matters is who we are, and what lies in our...

    Yet, I do find specific traits

    and morals that certain cultures have, as unique and admirable. For instance, I love Greek History like Sparta's fighting ethics and my favorite tv show is Vikings and their methods when fighting. This is not to say I approve of the raids they would do for plunder, but something...

    To read other tomes from the corporate library and then to come to a story like this must appear surprising to say the least. But I'd be lying outright if I said I wasn't a victim of envy. Envy is one of the most petty sins out there when you really think about it. The sheer...

    Life Has Been My Best Friend
