Few thoughts on Life. No big deal.

Posted by in Personal

As midnight draws closer, my sense of wisdom wants to burst out every now so often. And so I shall tonight. I am going to share some thoughts on life, and might I add – trust me, I’m an expert – I’ve lived it. Life is tough. Despite the most horrific experiences in life, life moves on. It has to.
