Everyone wants a guiding hand, A shining light when things get rough. But yours was a vice-like grip, And now I’ve had enough. As hard as it is to say goodbye, I know that now’s the right time. You saw all of my smiles, But you were never there to see me cry. Now it’s … Continue reading

Time to say goodbye.

“Everyone has one person in their life that no matter what they do, how much shit they put you through, or whatever, they will still always care about them; you’re that one person for me.” Congratulations.

Life Lessons #1; Just go for it.

Last night I met the very funny (and controversial) comedian Jimmy Carr.
