    When It Rains, It Pours.

    A couple of weeks ago I got into a fight. This wouldn't usually be a problem, but there were 8 of them and they were as stupid as they were many, hitting me while I was down. The aftermath left me with a broken arm, a swollen jaw and some gnarly cuts and bruises. I didn't pass my...

    I think this happens with everybody.

    But believe me, that is the only phase of life where we learn so many things about life and people. I always take things positively so i have enough past with me to make my future bright. And yes..i got the result. :)

    When you go through these groups do you read

    the title and do a little self-assessment to see if it applies to you? In essence, I've led an easy life, never in great need, devoid of tragedy. I was inclined to pass this one by...when did I have a time of need? But a memory popped into my head. It was October 1996. I was...

    It Shows Character

    If someone abandoned you in you're time of need... I know it's hurts..But realize Karma is alive and well ... and when they truely need someone they will finally stop and realize nobody is here because of what I did in the past!
