Favorite Quote:
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
Life is not counted by the breaths you take but the moments that take your breath away.
A little madness, a little kindness, makes for happiness.

Stupid Boy.
You think you're so great, don't you?
Yeah, I know how it is. Got every popular girl in the school? Every "easy" or "hot" girl you could ever want.
Think you're so tough?
Stupid boy.
You don't realize something important, so I'm going to clue you in on a little secret.
Don't tell anyone I told you.
We "down to Earth" people usually try to keep it on the downlow.
Life isn't like Middle School.
Girls are harder to get.
Money issues suddenly become more important than when the next party is.
Yeah, notice I'm always doing something more practical than partying with people I don't even really like?
Yeah, that's because I'm preparing myself for the real world.
Because life comes at you fast.
Someday, it'll hit you in the face if you aren't ready.
Stupid boy.
Think you're bad. Think you're tough.
Let's see how tough you are when I'm the sucsessful one instead of you.
But maybe by then you'll have grown a brain big enough to hold common sense and logic.
You'll see that the pretty girls you always go after are backstabbers.
They don't even like you.
They use you to boost their own popularity.
They're always clawing their way to the top, stepping on anyone to get where they want to be.
Top of the pyramid, hon. That's all they care about.
And they'll rip a sensitive guy like you to shreds to get there.
You don't deserve that. You haven't done anything to make that what you deserve.
You need love.
You need respect.
You deserve something lasting.
You deserve a real human being.
One you can talk to.
Someone much smarter than the girls who only care about their hair and makeup.
Someone who can actually express that they love you without saying "OMG" or "I heart you!"
You deserve a girl who adores you just for being you.
A girl who's eyes will light up the moment you step into the room.
A girl who cries when you're not there
And who worries when she doesn't know how you're doing.
Someone who isn't jealous.
Who can let you be free, but still manage to keep hold of your heart.
Someone like me.
I already love and respect you after all.
I already feel all of what you deserve.
But I'm not "Hot" or "Easy", am I?
Stupid Boy.

Based one hundred percent on the boy I'm in love with.

"The wise love. Thus be the lover wise."

I like it a lot. And I'm a guy. It reminds me of how so many people ask why my girlfriend and I are still together, even when I moved across town. It's because of boys and girls like that. We like the real person we're already with.
