    When I was around 9 years old my father bought

    me a t-shirt which had Allen Iverson's photo on it. I think before that day I never had a direction to take in life and I didn't know what to do. I was playing basketball before that day too but after that t-shirt my obsession and love to basketball started. All I wanted to was...

    Ever since I was younger I always wanted to

    have my own family. My mom used to tell me it is very important to have kids when you get married because it will give you different kind of joy in life. It makes you become more responsible. But growing up I had a rheumatic heart disease so it's kinda scary for me to get...

    My "friend" was supposedly going to help me get

    my crush. She ended up getting him first. I hate her now. She says she "feels bad" but I doubt she does.

    For God And Country

    Ever since I was a kid, all I ever wanted to do was to serve in the Armed Forces. I loved playing soldier when i was little, it always felt so heroic and adventurous. Then 9/11 happened, and even though I was only in second grade, it infuriated me. From that day on, I knew that I...

    2013 Sugar Bowl

    My football team was favored by two scores. They lost by two scores. What has this world come to? I wanted to chant after the game, now, all I can do is cry.

    One Dream

    My only dream. It was a dream consisting of love, marraige, and romantic bliss. My love was the shining beacon at the end of the tunnel in my dreary, pointless existence. She gave me a reason for being, and I found that I was good at it. I had one skill, one specialty: Being with...

    Pretty much in the womb! LMAO The only race I've ever won was the one where I was the fasted little swimmer to the uterus and it's been down hill from there. *giggles* Okay not totally but it was cute right?

    Here's a Good Joke.

    I had my dreams crushed this one time; I wanted to be a professional comedy writer living in New York City. The catch is that I am, or had been, an academic living in a small island city on the west coast of British Columbia. When I was 28 I had saved up a substantial amount of...

    Movies

    Movies are my favorite. They are all about people doing amazing things:becoming famous, being leaders, falling in love or discovering other worlds; kinda like at Disney World. They lift your hopes up really high and then they crash because I still haven't done any of those things...

    A Dream To Fly.

    All my life, at least as long as I could remember, I've been intrigued by jets and aircraft. When I was 6 during a family trip to Perth, I had my first flight on an airplane. I remember being awestruck by its shear size and beauty, and the magnificent roar of the engines as we...

    By Myself

    I am my own worst enemy, I shattered all my dreams by negativity and pessimism. I was always afraid to take a chance, I was afraid to do my best. I was afraid of failure. So here I am, with no hope, and it's my own fault.

    From Ashes To Dust

    Mashed. Squashed. Pounded. Crumbled. Pulverized. I took the ashes of my dreams Cradled them into faerie's hands. Sobbed. Moaned.  Whimpered. Silence. I breath faerielife into the ashes. And they turned into... Faeriedust. =)

    A couple hours ago my dream of going to the

    best school in the state was crushed. It is an amazing school, so of course many people want to go there, because of this they have to hold a lottery to decide who gets in, and who does not.

    It's Difficult

    It hurt me a lot to just have all my dreams crushed. I trusted someone when they told me they wanted to marry me and have a family with me, and I was litterally dreaming about it. Then one day its, "We should break up. I'm young and wanna live life," which was just code...
