This is my second note, i've been up for hours and this is how everyone will get to know me better through my notes. Read on to understand my life in my mind of pain and love.

"Your friends are your family, and your friends are your family" That was my quote for my 12th grade AP English class why because its true your friends are always there but so are your family. What can your family give you when you can't tell them you cheated on a test in class or that you lost your mom's favorite DVD. You don't tell them anything you tell your friends who then give you comfort about what you have done or they could have been the one's pressuring you to do it in the first place. Although born in to your family, you have a choice to please the eye of your friends or stick with your blood line. How do you even meet most of your friends in the first place but threw family. The word family, so many forms of family but they all mean the same thing to be "UNITED" by the one, one mind, one soul, one ego. That someone is the glue that holds ever family together, that someone is "YOU". You are the one, one mind, one soul, and one ego.
