This’ll be a pretty straightforward one, so sit back, relax, and (hopefully) enjoy! Over here in the Pacific Northwest, the days have been getting significantly longer and people have been complaining less and less about the all-too-familiar Washington rain. I can’t complain one bit. The state’s beautiful with terrible weather, so you can imagine how things go when the clouds decide to stay home. So this is only my second […]

Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.
Hello, Friends! We are another day closer to our goals and to our dreams.
( Unless you happen to be living in a dream xD )
We are primed to dream very early on in life. The first time was probably when you were asked: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Do you remember? It may have been something along the lines of “An Astronaut!” ,”A Firefighter!” or even “Just like you Dad!”. However, you answered I’m sure the thought brought a wide grin to your face. Why? The answer is your […]
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.

Light yourself on fire with passion and people will come from miles to watch you burn.
Finding your passion(s), at least to me, is a huge part of enjoying life. Personally, I used to feel pretty empty and unproductive before I actually went out and tried to find something I enjoyed. Everyone’s different, so take everything I have to say with a grain of salt. This is just a little bit of my life and what worked for me. Hopefully, something sticks and you find a […]

Below is […]
Dear Journal, I’m sorry I haven’t written to you in awhile. I know you must miss the feel of graphite against your pages. It’s been twenty-three days, four hours, and twenty-seven minutes since I started a new chapter in my life. “Rise and Fall of a blog” Ha! I only added the fall part for insurance. Who knows how long this mighty ship will sail? Only time will tell. Though […]
We all have one but no one else can hear it. Yep, you got it. I’m talking about that little voice in your head. Sometimes it can do more harm than good. Nobody else can hear the voice whisper “Oh, I can’t do that” or “I’m not good enough”. Do you remember the first time you heard it? How about the first time you hesitated to do something? When […]
My mother is my root, my foundation. She planted the seed that I base my life on, and that is the belief that the ability to achieve starts in your mind.
Happy Mothers Day! Thanks for everything Mom =D
Aim for the moon, if you miss you may hit a star.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.

What is being grateful? It is the action of taking a small moment in life to give thanks. When was the last time you stopped and were truly thankful for something? It may have been the time you were almost in an accident and said to yourself “Thank God”. Why should we wait for a life changing event to be grateful for the things in life that bring us joy? […]
Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh. — W. H. Auden
Only one thing makes a dream impossible: The fear of failure.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent.
Are we addicted to the keystrokes? Do we live for the fame? Do we just want someone to hear our voice? Everyday thousands of blogpost get published to the world wide web. Many of the post, like this one are just a blip on the radar. So why do we do it? We are human in need of self-expression. You ever have something happen to you where you just couldn’t […]
