This past year was rather difficult for many reasons. I am beyond the obstacles and I am moving forward. I am moving out of the city and will not rely on the T as much I used to. This next year I still have to learn to balance work full time, take part time classes at school and work out!

Allowing people to stop me from acheiving my goals. I am sensitive and let people's opinion get in my way or effect me.
