I survived, I am here, I made it. Now is the time to make something of myself. I need to be self-contained and self-motivated. I do things for myself, not for parents who love me or friends who depend on me.(though I love them all) My life is my own to make, and I'm on my way. Success must not sate me, it must spurn me forward. I have a job, time to get a better one. I have friends, time to get more. I am happy where I am, time to find out where else I can go.
