    I Appreciate It All

    I grew up poor; first generation Irish. If you remember the triple decker where Damon lived in Good Will Hunting, well that's where I grew up. Maybe not that exact one, but you get the idea. Nineteen kids lived in house next door spread across three 1,200 sq. ft. apartments...

    I Always Thought...

    I always thought that I'd want love forever. Always need to need someone. Always want to want someone. But I don't anymore. I just want to learn me, that's all. It's what I've become. Things like hate and love are irrelevant now. There is only learning.
