This blog is dedicated to my family, my friends, my acquaintances, and even people I have never met. I find that no matter who you are or what you do, you find yourself being influenced whether you like it or not. In a way, this blog is a tribute to those who have contributed to my life. At times you will find pieces of their lives on here as well as many, many pieces of my life. This is a record of my life, my thoughts and feelings. You see, without these people in my life, I wouldn’t be who I am today–for good or for bad– and I wouldn’t change that no matter what comes swinging my way. So linger, eat your fill. Learn from my experiences and the experiences of those who have touched my life. Or don’t. My hope is that you will find things here that will inspire you, that will shock you, that will make you angry, that make you open your eyes, make you hope, make you cry. Feel something, anything… and know that you’re alive! If you got the chance to change someone else’s life because of your own life, would you take it? I love you, I mean it.
