    Some Days

    A Time I Did

    Well,compared to how I feel about myself now I did. I've always felt unpretty and hated my voice. Now I would just be satisfied to be slender and healthy. People always pick the person that's not overweight. Oh,I know being too good-looking is a problem,too. I think Dita Von...

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)
