    I've done so many fun things in my life,

    some of them are pretty crazy, and some of them are really embarrassing, but today when I look back I laugh, and it's a good feeling. No regrets

    My life was a wreck for a long time - I was

    overweight, had no friends, had 5 surgeries on my feet from the age of 15-17, was on antidepressants and other pills for 4 years. Then everything started to change when I graduated high school. I got off all the medications and immediately started to lose weight (215 to 140...

    I have lost both my mother and my best friend to cancer. The thing about cancer, specially in the final stages, is that you know the end is coming, and it leaves you time, sometimes too much of it, to reflect on your life and what really matters. What struck me the most is...

    No matter how old you are there's a lot of temptation in life. Whether it's temptation to have sex, do drugs, or do things for money... They're everywhere.   But there's one temptation everyone always seems to fall for.  And that's the temptation to change yourself for other...
