About Me

My photo
I'm just an 18 year old kid living life for everything it's worth, and living each day for it's own. Everybody's life has it's ups and downs, but for me, writing is my escape from the realities I sometimes hate to face. I truly am blessed, to say the least, and I'm so thankful for every part of my life. Thanks for supporting me on my journey !

Website Development Day #... ?

The days just seem to blend together. I'm not sure whether or not its the fact that life has been going a million miles an hour lately or not, but I can't even remember when I started this project. I'm starting to get excited as I'm seeing the pieces slowly fit together. It's been such a long and in depth process, but I'm really glad I've stuck with it. I've learned so much, and it's really made me appreciate my work, and the work of others. If I lost everything right now and had the choice to start over, or ditch it all together, would I start over? Probably not. ;)

Go Vancouver! (Watching the Stanley Cup Finals, and it's not looking so hot for the Canucks)

My Bucket List

Did you ever see the movie "The Bucket List?" It's about these two guys who are both diagnosed with a terminally ill sickness. They both come from opposite sides of life; one has an excellent family life, but isn't the wealthiest guy in the world, and the other is extremely rich, but has no family life and a terrible social life. They decide that they are going to make a list of outrageous things to do before they die.
  It seems every day something new comes out based on this philosophy of living each day like it's your last. MTV's the Buried Life also toys around with the idea of doing crazy things before you die. A lot of people have began to write bucket lists since this new phenomenon, and I've been working at mine for a few months now. Every day it seems to grow by at least a point or two, though!
