- Thanks for everything you’ve done. – Say it to your mother, father, grandmother, or sister; whoever deserves it. Say it when it’s least expected and when it will make the most impact. (though it was more in the form of Thank You and I love you)

I’ve only got one life to live. – This will give you tremendous motivation.

- I don’t like my life – Of course it’s a bad thing to say. But once you’ve acknowledged that you don’t like your life you can now begin to change it. (which is exactly what I did)
I’ve never had more fun in my life.
- You hurt me.
- There’s more to life than this.
- I love you no matter what. (and we still broke apart)
I’ve accomplished a lot. You’ve been successful.

There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
and the vermin of the world inhabit it
and its morals aren't worth what a pig could spit
and it goes by the name of London.
At the top of the hole sit the privileged few
Making mock of the vermin in the lonely zoo
turning beauty to filth and greed...
I too have sailed the world and seen its wonders,
for the cruelty of men is as wondrous as Peru
but there's no place like London!
Taken from stephen_dedman:
The problem with Livejournal is that we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other.
Hence, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about.
Then post this in your LJ (only if you want to, obviously) and find out what people don’t know about you.
35. I am for the most part healthy and have no significant disability.
36. I have been born into a gender which I am comfortable with.
37. My sexuality is viewed positively in the media and by the majority of my society.
38. My sexuality is not visible to others just by looking at me.
39. My peer group is represented positively in the media and embraced positively by the majority of society.
40. My ethnic group is represented positively in the media and rarely stigmatized or stereotyped.
41. The language spoken by teachers in school was the same language as that I spoke with my family at home.
42. My parents and teachers took it for granted that I would attend university.
43. Any money I earned at part-time jobs before I turned 18 was mine to keep or put towards my education.
44. I know what my family's genetic history is.
