    Motto Time!

    Mine is "Sh*t happens, and you get over it." I know it's not pretty - actually it's fairly crude, but considering what I've had happen in my life? It works.

    My Motto Is....

    " it was worth a shot" is mines because I like taking risk. I always believe that if something's worth obtaining rather it's, money , love, sex, or goals, it's worth it to go for it when that moment comes.

    A creed to live by...

    Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself to others. It is because we are different that each of us is special. Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you. Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart...
