    Ouch!

    There's a time where every young person thinks they know everything and can do anything, then get hit with a dose(s) of humility and reality. It still hurts, but I'm stronger because of it.

    Talk Is Cheap, Actions Speak Louder Than Words.

    Talk truly is cheap. Deception is apparently an art, and some are much better better artists than others. I've known some pretty good artists. Some find it so easy to rattle off pretty poetic eloquent loving words without any substance to back them. Words not backed by actions...
