    I just found out that my grandfather has brain

    cancer and has a few weeks to live. I met him a little less than a month ago and we've only seen eachother three times. He's one of the sweetest, funniest, most heartwarming person I know and now I'm losing him. I can't do anything about the cancer, and neither can the doctors...

    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.

    Live life fully while you're here.

    Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it...

    True To Yourself.

    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...

    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

    Aren’t you amazed with the universe?

    You know, every time I look to the stars I feel a different emotion, I can’t even look at them for too long in an open sky and without holding anything. It just gives me a desperate sense of insecurity and inferiority. I even have nightmares with it! For example, I look to...

    As many of you already know,

    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...
