    I just came across a book recently,

    an amazing book I got for about fifty cents somewhere, but it is priceless. And I think it could impact your lives, as well, in a positive enlightened way. It's called Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson, M.D. It has four characters in it, two mice called Sniff and...

    The truth is that I do not think life is poetic

    or beautiful. I am not referring to life itself, which I consider an inexplicable miracle and an immeasurable gift. I'm referring to this life that society forces us to have. I think the social relations are superficial, all living on their own world in terms of desires and...

    I realized **** feelings,

    **** friends, **** enemies , **** whatever brings you down. Just be you and have fun man. I started taking risks in my life , stopped being shy and scared and just went for it. Even though my life isn't complete or even close to what I want I'm slowly beginning to be happy.

    A murder has happened recently in a building
