    Time Is Of The Essence!

    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...

    Way Too Short

    The (global) average life span for a human is (roughly) 67.2 years (taken from a study this year). That is roughly 24,528 days. When you can take away 8,395 of those days because I am 23, to me that seems like a very short amount when you put in in context of time and how long...

    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!!

    Too True Too. :)

    Fading Away...

    After you’re gone, people will forget your name, no matter how important it was, and your face, no matter how pretty it was, and what you said, no matter how clever any of it sounded. The things you’ve done will crumble and fade and the places you once loved, will change and...
