    The world is open to better things.

    ... Uh well I use to think that when I was younger. But as you get older it gets harder because you can't think about how it would be like anymore. You gotta be strong and go do it and it's harder than I imagined when I was younger.

    Just watched a film called Camp X-Ray

    and opens yours eyes to a whole lotta different things! If you've seen the film then I'll think you'll agree. We are all people yes people do bad things but people do learn and are innocent in there own way. Wishing this world was just at peace.

    I drive back with my boy

    after a heavy lunch downtown. I see my old school building. Girls in light blue pinafore-like uniform. I remember those early 5 am mornings. With the tired moon as my companion, I would trudge to the bus stop lugging my 5-kg bag on my right shoulder and a bulky ring file with...

    It's been two years of struggle

    but I know it will be worth it. They say God tests those because he wants you to learn a lesson or prepare u for something greater. My problem, trying to be obedient and not hard headed. I'm no stranger to struggles but there comes a point in your life you know where you belong...

    Obviously life is hard,

    not easy at all. I feel that what I want in life isn't going to happen. All I can do is just see where life wants to take me.

    There's actually nothing you can do about it.

    Life is hard. Life has many chapters for us. Just remember that one bad chapter doesn't mean it's the end of the book.

    As A Reminder

    Back in April of this year (2013) I think I went through the worst period of my life but it was also molded me and made me realize just how tough I could be. I wouldn't say that that was rock bottom for me but it was pretty low. I had 10 pounds left with me and had 22 days I had...

    Life is really hard for me this year.

    I used to think I was tough, but then I realized I wasn't. I was fragile and I wore this ******* armor. I've been through hell. I need to be strong but I think I'm gonna breakdown now. :(

    I've always known this.

    When life gets hard for me I shut everyone out. I become a loner with no time to hangout because I need my space. I don't like needing anyone.
