Today was supposed to be a carefree day but it was fraught with frustrations...along with my mother's love of beauty and sensuality I also inherited her stubbornness and independence...It is sometimes a combination fraught with dualities that make life not so easy...I was weary by day's end but I figure tommorrow is another day with fresh possibilities and unexplored potential

    everyone tells me im like my dad. i hated it. these days, now im not a **** little kid, im so stoked. my cheeks hurt when people tell me. i even love the bad stuff, cause thats the stuff that makes me laugh, shake my head and think, 'daaaaaad'. when i grow up i wanna be just like my dad. and a firetruck. i wanna be a firetruck too. thats would be heaps sweet. every day is fresh with new possibilties right?
