    Maybe I don't try hard enough.

    Who knows? I think I rely too much on this site to make friends and it's just not happening. Which I'm ok with now. I'm a different person on the Internet than I am in RL, so it makes sense

    Wierd? I Know.

    I always try to change people's life for the better. Yet, all of the things i try and convince them not do, i do myself. It's as if i only care about the people(s) around me well being; and im not the slightest bit concerned about my own life.

    I am a bit of a perfectionist.

    when it comes to house work, art, and stuff like that, it has to be as clean; as good as i can make it. when it comes to school, i try my best. i try to succeed then i try to exceed. but, like people, my endurance unfortunately has a limit. when i was younger, i had the most...

    Im a Big Fan

    sometimes things in life dont go the way you want, you get very brow-beaten. Don't let it get you down, pick yourself up and keep on going there is always something better around the corner, so keep trying, the pessimists encourage you to give up, reach for the stars!

    There Is No Try

    I'd rather do more than try, I base it off a quote that the great Jedi Yoda once said a long time ago in a galaxy far far away... "Try not. Do, or do not, there is no try." -YODA

    I honestly wonder why I try. It doesn't matter how much effort I put in, it doesn't matter how hard I work or how hard I try, it never makes a freakin' difference. No one ever gives a damn, there's never any thanks or gratitude. So on days like this I really just want to say f...

    To Be My Best!

    I know that no one is perfect. But it is not an excuse not to be good it is not a reason not to try either. I may fail sometimes. Fail is not reaching the goal I set in different task but I don't give up neither do I give in. I regroup and I try again.
