    So Senseless

    Materialism is such an easy trap to fall into in this world; I've been guilty of it myself.  However, deep down, I see the senselessness of it.  I mean, as long as you've got clothes on your back to shield you from public embarrassment and the elements, what's the big...

    I Am Trying...

    I have a big problem with this, but I am trying....Actually I am scoping that LV bag in the picture.  I am addicted to name brands, thinking they are "better" somehow.
