    For such a long time I've had a really negative

    outlook on life, but during my senior year I have become a much more positive person. This is all thanks to my marine science teacher; he is such a well spoken and wise teacher and he makes you look at things in a different perspective. I have a lot of respect for him and feel...

    It's really amazing how someone can come into

    your life so quickly and change it in an instant. I honestly can't even describe the feeling of complete and utter happiness when someone just can know you so well without even fully knowing you. I don't know...I just feel like either there is a connection with a person or there...

    She changed my life for the worse

    and the better. The worse because she mentally and emotionally ruined me by stringing me along and leaving me to be an obsessive, jealous, pathetic mess. But also for the better because now I want to change myself to be better than I was yesterday, and I don't care what it takes...

    I met someone that made my life worth living

    again. I was experiencing things I had seen a million times brand new again through her eyes. And now she's gone. Taken from this world too soon. I want to be able to go in her place. She should be allowed to live and have the rest of a life that was taken way too soon.

    that one person that fits you perfectly, doesn't need to change you, but you change for the better. Once I allow myself to step back & realize what has happened in the past few years, I have come to see that it is my boyfriend that has turned me into the person I am. & slowly...

    Obviously, my life wouldn't be my life without my soul-mate, my wife. She is my best friend and I love her madly and I adore her. But, there are times when she balances me too much. She compensates and frankly, I take advantage and unknowingly take it for granted. I've met...

    Wintery Weekend

    You dance around, twirl and repose. Become slack and indulgent, a factor of your own mind. And for one solitary moment, down goes the wall, the Praetorian Guard shifts away, unencumbered, yet an echo of protectiveness shouts and screams. "No, you poor fool, no!" The great...

    who forever changed my life passed exactly a year ago. I still sometimes sit in the dark and cry as I feel a little lost. He was to young to die but I feel he went off to heaven early because he wanted to be there and he was a amazingly good person.

    The trick comes with being able to trust your own judgment in both finding and treasuring the person and times in life that can bring you immeasurable joy...along with the strength to hold at bay the ones that can rob it.
