I believe it is safe to say that we each have a goal or dream that we aspire to accomplish.

As children we dream of that day that we become a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a firefighter, a police officer, etc. (At least those were some of the dreams that my generation had.) Today, I find that many people are dreaming of any job that leads to instant fame and fortune — especially jobs that require the least amount of work possible.

Maybe we have all tried to accomplish our goal by taking the easy way out. As children we are taught that cheating on a test is wrong. Why is it wrong if we get the answer right?


Someone that I once considered a mentor said, "Katie wasted all her knowledge and intelligence. She was one of the best students we had."

When I first heard those words, about four and a half years ago, it hurt. It was an odd and unexplainable pain.

One man's trash might be another man's treasure, but is it JUST or RIGHT to tell someone that you feel they wasted their LIFE?!?


Dear Friend.


I just wanted to tell you that I love you and am thinking about you. On the good days and bad days you are still amazing to me because the weakness of mind cannot dictate the strength of the heart. 

On the really good days it’s easy to get up and get out, but on the bad days it’s like walking through quicksand just to open the door and look outside.
