    Think That I Have Done Enough

    of wasting time and energies on things that were dead when I got them, no matter how much I tried they never blossemed under my care, but then someone else came in and the blooms came out.  Hurt and sad that I could not and found that even though it made me who I am today...

    What Am I Doing?

    This beets me, why we all do thinks that we know, deep down are of no use. I once read an article about why humans mas***bate. One possible answer is because we seek pleasure. But If that so, if we humans really seek pleasure and have knack for it, then why do we put up thinks...

    Sometimes It Just Hits Me!

     That it's extremely likely that I am probably more than halfway done. Done!! I have no fear of death whatsoever. But I do fear that when I get "home" I'll not have done the things that are genuinely important!! OR worse yet..I'll have to come back!!
