About Me

CURRENT MISSION

The pen and the sword all in accord

ABOUT ME

For a time I was working as an EMT but I'm currently a full time student enrolled in the Respiratory Therapy program at PCC. Very good times

PHILOSOPHY

"At times I almost dream
I too have spent a life the sages' way,
And tread once more familiar paths. Perchance
I perished in an arrogant self-reliance
Ages ago; and in that act a prayer
For one more chance went up so earnest, so
Instinct with better light let in by death,
That life was blotted out -- not so completely
But scattered wrecks enough of it remain,
Dim memories, as now, when once more seems
The goal in sight again."
-Robert Browning

"It's so easy to laugh, It's so easy to hate
It takes strength to be gentle and kind"
-Moz

"Everyday you must build the foundation of your life. You must convince yourself that today was better than yesterday and that tomorrow will be better than today. In this, there is no limit to your mastery"
-Bushido
