Me, when someone wakes me up…

The Story of Kyle

One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, “Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.”

I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up, and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes.

My heart went out to him. So I jogged over to him, and as he crawled around looking for his glasses, I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, “Those guys are jerks. They really should get lives.” He looked at me and said, “Hey thanks!” There was a big smile on his face. It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.

I helped him pick up his books and asked him where he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to private school before now. I would have never hung out with a private school kid before, but we talked all the way home, and I carried his books.

He turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I asked him if he wanted to play football on Saturday with me and my friends. He said yes.

We hung out all weekend, and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him. And my friends thought the same of him. Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again. I stopped him and said, “Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!” He just laughed and handed me half the books.

Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends. When we were seniors, we began to think about college. Kyle decided on Georgetown, and I was going to Duke. I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor, and I was going for business on a football scholarship.

Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for graduation. I was so glad it wasn’t me having to get up there and speak.

On graduation day, I saw Kyle. He looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school. He filled out and actually looked good in glasses. He had more dates than me and all the girls loved him! Boy, sometimes I was jealous. Today was one of those days. I could see that he was nervous about his speech, so I smacked him on the back and said, “Hey, big guy, you’ll be great!” He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled. “Thanks,” he said.

As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began. “Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years. Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach — but mostly your friends. I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them. I am going to tell you a story.” I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the story of the first day we met. He had planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his mom wouldn’t have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile. “Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable.”

I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile. Not until that moment did I realize its depth.

Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture, you can change a person’s life.

you think you can love somebody just by looking at 'em?

Friedrich Nietzsche

“It is not a lack of love, 
but a lack of friendship 
that makes 
unhappy marriages.”

Mary Jeanne

“Having a sharp memory is great, but sometimes the ability to forget is a lot better.”

The best way to appreciate someone

The best way 
to appreciate someone 
is to 
your life 

Life is confusing.

Life is confusing. One day you can be on top of the world, the next day; at the bottom of the ocean.                  

Dear algebra

Dear algebra, I'm sick and tired of finding your 'x'. Just accept that fact she's gone. move on, man.                  

Yes, I dance in my car.

Yes, I dance in my car. 

Yes, I see you staring at me. 

No, I do not care.

Mad Man

I think this man is crazy
Hours of driving early in the morning, 
While i'll be having formulas bouncing around 
Organic chemistry, aminoacids... 
Am i going to date a mad man again?
Cuz if i am, i'm bringing out the costume 

Hello October

Welcome October, I hope you like my style! I invited this month by wearing my new pair of geeky glasses! I think it looks okay, slightly nerdy but they are comfortable :)

Nonetheless I can't believe it is October already! i'm busy studying my second year at University and I've noticed that it is getting tougher, so many class mates have dropped off and I understand their choice, not many students pass the exams which is scary. I give credits to my previous teacher for teaching my all the things I know. Especially Chemistry Per and Biology Britta ^^ 

My life has not only been swamped with studying, no there is a lot of other things that has made my mind go 200 miles an hour but I'll let you know about it through the entries posted here~

I've been thinking about something and I have a challenge. This month you have to do something on each letter i present below - and it is all about you and becoming the inner most awesome you!

Are you ready? 
  • W = Write a list of what makes you feel wonderful.
