    Everyday I Learn Something New...

    That is the most important thing to me in life. I have so much to learn and I love learning new things from my friends and just people in general. I think I've grown up to be a respectable young man with a very understanding mind. I give a lot of thanks to my mom for that one and...

    Being a person primarily closed off from other

    people (by choice earlier in life), I never developed the skills that everyone else around me has, and have success in things I want. Now, I have come across another event in my life that teaches me this. I will get the lesson this time. I'm writing this message for all...

    And I'm Looking Forward to It.

    I'm young, and I still have A LOT to learn. The path ahead is extremely long and intimidating, and I can't afford to go off track again. There's plenty of times where I've just wanted to give up on everything. Where the pain I was in (physically and emotionally) didn't seem...

    Yep. But I love the now.

    It's not perfect at all, but it's here. I'm thankful. And I know I can't help everything, but I can choose and I can try. I do and I will.

    Cold To The Touch

    I drank myself to sleep after last night's breakdown. I woke up today without a tear in my eye. I just woke up, made my cup of tea, and got to my chores. I just drifted from task to task with a numb, I-don't-give-a-**** kind of mentality. I just don't feel anything anymore. I'm...

    Well My Body Says: 16 Years, My Mind Says: Over 20

     Yeah, like the title says, i'm 16 but somehow i can't talk to people my age, i just... don't understand them... But when i talk to people over 19 years old, I feel "normal" or maybe happy. Sometimes i hate being like this, because you are like the mother of the...

    I Sure Hope So

    When One Door of Happiness Closes, Another One Opens

    At Least That's What I've Learned

    Good or bad, this is just the start, this will pass too. Sometimes you will eat your words, break your promises and just laugh at the irony of things. You start believing in different things, you break down, build anew, experience that you can live without a lot of stuff, learn...
