    Today I chased a guy trying to steal my bike.

    I won the war and my bike is back in my safe hands. I am so lucky I was in the right place at the right time. However, I only had "get my bike back" on my brain. If he was armed in any way, I don't think I would have seen it coming. Sure I love my bike, but I love myself even...

    Trade Of Life

    We were (mom and I), in the kitchen,

    talking. I saw her all the dishes and take care of all the dirt we've scattered all across the house. Then I decided to live alone. I won't have to put up with another person, compromise things, be abused, won't have to answer anyone, can live freely. And I love freedom!

    No matter how much you feel you love someone,

    don't promise them forever. At least not until you get married Chris out! :)

    With Not So Deep Thoughts (to Take Mine More Seriously!) Lol

    Should vegetarians eat animal crackers? If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you. The pen is mightier than the sword -- if the sword is very small and the pen is real sharp. If  you throw a cat out a car window, does it become kitty litter? I didn't fight my...

    This is on a bus back from camp.

    I’m thirteen and so are you. Before I left for camp I imagined it would be me and three or four other dudes I hadn’t met yet, running around all summer, getting into trouble. It turned out it would be me and just one girl. That’s you. And we’re still at camp as long as...

    Learning A Valuable Lesson

    When things go wrong, people love to say that it doesn't matter because at least you've learned a valuable lesson in life. To be honest there are many lessons about human nature that I wish I had never learned. Am I the only one to feel that way? Are all lessons good ones? I don...

    Major Lesson Learned

    What I have learned from my whole life in general, but mainly the last 7 years dealing with a mental illness called schizophrenia, is that God is faithful and his compassion never ends. We may get upset and say mean cruel things to him because of the suffering, yet his love never...

    Just Because

    I learned that just because something is enjoyable and fun, doesn't mean it's the best thing for you. I always used to think that experimenting with drugs wouldn't have any negative effects on me but i was wrong and learned my lesson.
