In life, if you don't stand for something,
You will fall for everything.
And if you keep trying to be everything you're not,
You'll end up missing out on
Everything you were meant to be.

I wrote this after my Varsity Field Hockey team was eliminated from Tournament- we were ranked 3rd in the State and we were defeated by the 14th-ranked team in the first round. It was SO incredibly disappointing at first, but now all I can think about is all the fun times we've spent together. After all, those times are what I'll remember in the end.November 15, 2004
" Life is full of road bumps, detours and distractions. Road bumps are things you have to get over, detours are things you have to change to make it work, and distractions are things that try to get you to forget the important things in life. So follow the signs, keep your eyes on the road and don't let those things make you lose your way."

I found this in one of my forwards and it's so true! I know a lot of young people that are in relationships and say I love you all the time. So many people take those few words for granted and I think we should take time to think about it and wait until we're ready so we don't make mistakes.November 3, 2004

" Being popular isn't everything. I know because I was and now that I'm not. I see that I wasted all that time hanging with people I didn't like and who didn't care about me. I wasted all that time and I can't get it back now. Promise me this: you will always be true to yourself and not change to be someone who is accepted by others."
