    It's another year, another year closer to the

    grave. Why do we spend our lives doing things we really don't want to do? No one wants to go to work, but unless you are independently wealthy it's a necessity. What I'm talking about is peoples personal life. I read so many stories on here where someone doesn't like their...

    Mine is to be a better me.

    No more excuses, be more confident in myself and what I do. To set goals for myself and actually finish them:) there's so much I wanted to do, but never pushed myself to do them. This year will be the year to do so. And truly mean it.

    Taking Care of Myself

    For 2008, I am promising myself to stop consorting with abusive girls and start caring primarily about improving my own life. This year I'm doing whatever I need to do to be happy and only those that are supportive of my decisions and needs are coming along for the ride.
