A Type 1 Diabetic teen that was introduced into the world of diabetes on November 11th, 2008. I continue to walk through the path of life even in this carbohydrate and plastic infected world.

My parents, God bless them, are always running around like chicken with their heads cut off and I can tell you why. It’s because I can never settle, I always have to be doing something I always have to be dreaming and talking about the next big adventure. I don’t know why that’s the way that […]
Coming from a small town, in which I have taken the liberty to call Smalltown, USA, there comes a point where you find yourself asking: what the hell am I gonna do today? Small towns have this aroma after many years that nothing is very exciting anymore and then when you find something new and […]

“I feel like that’s why I have a relationship with Him, because I need it. I suck by myself. Like, when I’m by myself and I feel like I have nothing to lean on? Terrible. Terrible person.” -Justin Bieber during his GQ photoshoot There’s a lot of controversy lately over faith. Or maybe it’s always been […]
Smalltown, USA has blessed all of its residents with April showers the past couple of days. But, we’re supposed to be getting flowers, not showers. I think that the months are just a little confused right now. Sorry for my poor humor. My favorite seasons are the inbetween as I like to call them. I […]
