"I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope." - Red (Morgan Freeman), The Shawshank Redemption
"I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. But still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend." - Red (Morgan Freeman), The Shawshank Redemption
“It is your duty to change the world, if you can. Not by violence, peacefully, individually, not as a mob.” To Sir, With Love (1967) Film
“A great city is a battlefield,” he continued. “You need to be a fighter to live in it, not exist, mark you, live. Anybody can exist, dragging his soul around behind him like a worn-out coat; but living is different. It can be hard, but it can also be fun; there’s so much going on all the time that’s new and exciting.” To Sir With Love by E.R. Braithwaite
“It is said that here we practise free discipline. That's wrong, quite wrong. It would be more correct to say that we are seeking, as best we can, to establish disciplined freedom, that state in which the child feels free to work, play and express himself without fear of those whose job it is to direct and stimulate his efforts into constructive channels. As things are we cannot expect of them high academic effort, but we can take steps to ensure that their limited abilities are exploited to the full." To Sir, With Love By E.R. Braithwaite

9/12/14 - Grass shoes I grew at work because of artist Gene Pool and his idea on creating grass suits. Through his mind and imagination, this project wouldn't have been possible. Thank you.

Rest In Peace Diamond, I love you. 4/24/14
"That last kiss, I'll cherish, Until we meet again. And time makes It harder, I wish I could remember. But I keep, Your memories..."
Today, April 24 @ 2:00PM my cat Diamond passed away of old age (19 years). I've had her since I was very little. She was my baby and best friend. Days when I'd come home from school and she'd run right towards my car to greet me back home, cuddle next to me at night and purr in my ear, dance for her food in the mornings, climb on my shoulders, sit in the middle of my homework or board games, and give me cat kisses. I loved her so much.
She passed away in my bedroom on one of my blankets. Before she passed I laid beside her and told her how much I loved her and that everything was going to be okay. We looked into each others eyes and she'd place her paw on top of my hand. Her pads were cold and her pupils never dilated. But we continued to look at one another. I would ask her if she could see her siblings...I told her that they were waiting for her and that she'd be safe. Then I went on to ask her if now, she would wait for me.
She finally had the strength to flip over and face away from me and move away. This was my sign to get up and sit in the opposite side of my room. I sat and watched her intensely as her breathing withered away. Right when my phone said 2:00PM my room was still and the birds and breeze fell silent. I knew she had gone then. I checked her heart and there was no sign of life I could see or feel. I am just so glad that I was able to be home with her in her final moments in this world together. I made it home, I made it just in time.
Aww why thank you for thinking I'm an awesome person.
A few people have already mentioned that I'm awesome already x3 so must be true~.
I think now adays its more common for some people to live with their parents. I mean.. in most places, everywhere you go, every thing is rather expensive.
Not many can afford to live on their own :c
Yeah.. I hope my mom gets better. But at her age, not too sure if she will. She has a heart murmur and is anemic so not too much you can do. So I try to be there for her, no matter what and keep an close eye on her.
Thank you for your kind words though. I appreciate it n.n
