I'm in a party mode atm
It’s not how much you accomplish in life
that really counts,
but how much you give to other.
It’s not how high you build your dreams
that makes a difference,
but how high your faith can climb.
It’s not how many goals you reach,
but how many lives you touch.
It’s not who you know that matters,
but who you are inside.
Believe in the impossible,
hold tight to the incredible,
and live each day to its fullest potential.
You can make a difference
in your world.

You see your best friend
You see the girl who thinks she’s your best friend
You see the girl you never got along with
You see the girl that chopped her hair off
Then you tell your best friend about them
You see the “popular girl”
You see your favorite teacher
You see the couple making out by the lockers
You see the “new student”
But it turns out they’ve been in your grade since preschool
You see “him”
Then you see his new girlfriend
“When you love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, and that’s the sad truth. Maybe they’ll break your heart, or maybe you’ll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks, and that’s the burden. Like wings, they have weight. We feel the weight on our backs but they are the burden that lifts us. Burdens that allow us to fly.”
“I’ve learned a lot this year.. I learned that things don’t always turn out the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And I’ve learned that there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I’ve learned that some broken things stay broken, and I’ve learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.”
