"People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway." - Credited to Mother Teresa of Clacutta.

Stuff about me...
My name is not that important, but that's probably the only thing I won't tell you about me.
I'll tell you everything I know, but you'll have to get to know me to learn the rest.
There's still some stuff that I don't know.
I'm 19 years old, my birthday is 4/20
5'11'', Brown Eyes, Brown Hair....the usual
I'm a nice person once you get to know me..
I am immature.
I mean, I can be mature if I have to, but for the most part, I'm reheheheheally immature.
I'm a bit of a nerd, and I'm proud of it!
I love science, and all further applications.
I read science-y magazines for fun.
I'm known for spouting random bits of trivia.
I'm a senior in high school, and I plan to go into chemical engineering, or some tomfoolery like that.
I love to cook.
Signature Dish? Well, being Italian, it would have to be Pizza!
I play the ukulele, and I've attempted the mandolin (Didn't turn out so well).
I play guitar sometimes.
I'm not one of those guitarists that have every rock song they know committed to memory, but I can play something to make you smile.
That's what I love most: making people smile.
I don't care how terribly my day is going, if I can get someone to smile at least once, I count that as a victory for the day.
I'm a pretty big guy. Not insanely beefy, but I'm no tub-o-lard.
The kind of guy who finds that it's really easy to hurt someone accidentally, what with my abnormally large feet and overall large-ness.
So, I try to stay as nonviolent as I can, and it's been going pretty well so far.
I love my friends with my life.
I would've cracked by now if it wasn't for them.
But all-in-all, i'm a pretty level-headed guy.
I do everything for Jesus.
I didn't always see him,
but in hindsight, He's always been there for me.
Seriously, he's given me so much, and I'll never be able to thank him enough.
I'll go ahead and say that I don't agree with what Obama thinks. If you can't handle that, then you probably shouldn't be reading this in the first place.
However I don't agree with what a majority of Conservatives believe either.
I believe abortion is bad - in every and any case
I'm also against the death penalty - nothing justifies taking a life.
And I absolutely HATE how Santorum (the candidate endorsed by the Catholic Church) shits on other people's lifestyles.
I guess that's why I feel really odd whenever my parents and friends talk politics. Most of my friends lean towards the right end of the spectrum, and my parents are *extremely* Conservative Catholics - and don't get me wrong, I'm catholic as well; I embrace catholicism - but I'm more liberal than my friends and family. I'm not a Democrat, but more like an in-the-middle guy. Democrats think I'm conservative, Republicans think I'm liberal.
It gets rather... messy.
So, that's all for now! If you want to know something specific, you're gonna have to talk to me, get to know me, I don't know. Maybe it will help me find myself, too.
