    I feel really happy these past few days

    since I've been spending a lot of time with my friends and we've been gaming and watching movies at that. I'm also happy to say that my friends here in America Canyon are very right knit and a group of my other friends invited me to be apart of his Star Wars party and taught me...

    As painful as it can be sometimes,

    we don't have the right to sit on the sidelines and waste the life we've been given... There is always someone out there fighting to live... Lets appreciate the gift of life while we have it... It's so precious

    Love It. Love It. Can't Get Enough Out of It.

    Although, to be fair, it's the only state of being I have any first-hand familarity with - so there's no point of reference to use for comparison.  From an outsider's POV though, death looks rather tedious.

    But lately I really couldn't tell you why. I guess I love the drama and waking up every morning knowing somethings going to happen- exciting, mellow, or just boring- it's always a mystery when you first get up.

    Don't Like the Opposite

     Someday the reaper takes us all but not yet.  I can still dance, not sure about handstands anymore but may try.  Fast reaction time so I drive, well, watching out for cops and small children.

    I'm so happy to be here,

    experiencing! I want to be in this moment forever. This is real. I need not fear, and I need not hide. I make no apologies. I obey no slave master. I enjoy true freedom. "I am a woman, phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, that's me."
