    I Used to Be Like That.

    i used to just sit back and let life pass me by, or at least think i was. point is you have to make your own fun in life, and you have to do it out of the most mondane things. for instance dont just clean, dance around like a loonie and sing while you clean, who cares if all...

    Too Often

    I see my life as a revolving door that too many times I just stayed in it going round and round without jumping out and taking life by the horns and dealing with it.
