    Honestly, I Try

    I do try. In so many aspects, but sometimes I just can't help it, and I fail. Sometimes it may look as though I do nothing, but it may be that I'm trying to break free of stubborn procrastination. I might appear to not care about friendships, but I do, I really do. And I try...

    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!

    But Some Days

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I try to be a good person; a good friend.

    I try to be nice and polite. I wish people would notice me and not ignore just me. I wonder if anyone would miss me other than my family.

    I'll Make It Work

    Things are hard for me, and sometimes I just want to give up, but I try until I'm out of trying juice. I will work things out for as long as I can, but one can only hold on for so long before everything melts or slips from your grasp.

    All You Can Do

    All you can do in life is try, if you succeed then great, if not try again, try harder.... if it's not good enough for other people then so what, at least you know in your heart that you have done your best and thats all that really matters.
