No Need to Worry

I've been in your shoes before.
Those shadows can be rather scary, huh?
I understand.
Just be a brave little girl and walk around them.
And if they creep up on you,
Use all of your strength to fight the darkness.
You can do it.
What makes the nasty shadows?
Mean and vicious people, Darling.
They want to blind you.
They want to make you believe there isn't any light on the other side.
Don't follow my mistakes and sit in the shadow.
Keep walking.
If you feel like you need to...
I'll be on the other side waiting for you.

2010 is going to be an interesting year for me. I've learned so many things that I'm overly eager to apply to my life in the coming year. I'm also turning 17 in a few weeks! :D I'm glad I have such a passion for life.

Keys of the Past

I stand with sand swirling about my feet.
The roads ahead of me are disappearing before my eyes.
Tree roots are left bare.
Ugly, these trees are.
Their branches seem to penetrate and violate the surrounding air.
The roots grab and hold the soil.
The soil is merely performing a selfness act.
Of course.
How many of us can say the same thing?
How many of us sacrifice our life's purpose for the 'ugly trees' among us?
Or for a being so self-dependent?
I stand with sand swirling about my feet.
The roads ahead of me are disappearing before my eyes.
Tree roots are left bare.
Brave, these trees are.

Sometimes Life Sucks. Or Does It?

Yup. I'm considered one of the most entergetic, outgoing and 'happiest' people in my clan. And still, I have moments where my life is just horrible. Or so I think...

Over the years I've come to realize that happiness isn't always things/people/events that please you, rather, instilling your emotions or your passions into an outside thing/person/event. I've made tons of tough decisions in my life, and I'm at the tender age of 16. I'm glad I've realized this now before my life's purpose became shallow and materialistic.

I guess what I'm trying to say is though I may mope around for a few days, break down crying once or twice (Ok, ok. Three times is more like it) on the inside I'm still very content with my lifestyle. I have a roof over my head, a bed to sleep in, food to eat and clean water to drink. Millions of people around the planet aren't able to say the same thing. I also have respect and love for myself that I'm not letting anyone take away from me.

Life Anew

Tomorrow is Christmas and a ton of things has happened to me over this recent holiday season. Been through the typical 'boy' drama, got a new laptop (which means late night posts :D) and have established new friendships all over the place. I've even managed to take a few of my already established relationships and take them to the next level! :) Building trust is fun. Lol

Hopefully after tomorrow I can get started on doing those book evaluations I mentioned before. I hope everyone has a great Christmas. And remember, there's a time for work, a time for play, but video games are a 24 hour occupation. :) (I literally have no idea where the hell that came from...)

Words > Moving Pictures

Moving pictures? Yeah. My idiotic way of saying 'movies'. I've never been into them and most likely I never will. One thing I can never get enough of though...?


Yup. In fact, I've read so much in my life time I've literally destroyed my vision. That whole near-sighted/far-sighted thing became obsolete back in 2nd grade. I can't see near or far. Damnit. Lol

Off track. The point is my passion is in books. And I'm taking it upon myself to introduce (or 'reintroduce', for my fellow book worms out there) a slew of books I've read/am reading over a period of time.
Oh and, the picture of this *hawt* piece of candy to the left is a hint to what my favorite series of books is! :D

Yes, I think so.
My name is Patrice. I'm person with way too many thoughts and not enough patience to explain them. Well, until now.
There are tons of things I wish I could share with other people, but I'm either too impatient or feel that most people aren't worthy enough to listen. XD
So now I begin my "journey" if you will. High school is wrapping up, college is setting in and Lord knows what else.
Welcome. :)
