Never hold a grudge. Forgive when you have the chance. Don't say tomorrow because tomorrow may never come for some. The people you thought would never disappoint you, will. Someone will let you down. But it's always that someone that will get you right back up again. There will people that you will meet that you can never forget, even if they leave you. But even if the times change, the people who really matter will stay in your life forever.
40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
Firework by Katy Perry (Tyler Ward/ Alex Goot Acoustic)

You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it's time, you'll know

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on slet your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

New Years Resolutions:
Get a Dental Assisting Job

That's all I got for now.
