    I just realized I do have 1 regret. I regret never just packing up & taking off! When I was younger, that is. One of my good friends in college, Russ Rendon, did just that. Periodically he would feel the need to just pack up & go- no fear, no mistakes, all alone. He met his wife...

    Here I am today at 16 and my best friend is 26. Not going to lie, I'm starting to regret it. Why? Well it's complicated and I'm afraid that's all it ever will be. "Complicated"

    I cheated on my girlfriend of 1 year.

    I have never in my entire life felt more horrible afterwards. I have never regretted something so much. I know that I will never do it again because I'll remember how I felt. Cheating isn't me. It really isn't. Why did I do it? I can't tell her because I don't want to lose her...

    Losing Values

    Giving to much can result in heartbreak and betrayal, I gave to much and got to much taken away. Presents and gifts taken by people who act liked they cared but in reality they just threw it away as if money had no value.
