Just wanted to pop in and show a little appreciation for the people that follow my writing. The people that compliment it and bash it down; I want to say thank you. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and even though I can be hard headed at times and stick to my guns, I do like to hear opinions and other views. I know that I don’t have much to say and at times I get off on tangents about how terrible I feel like my life has been but it means more the brightest star in the universe to hear that people actually pay attention. They get it, they understand, they read, and they support. That’s what I love about the freedom of speech and will; it’s still out there. I’ve been in a slump and really bad place for some time now and I’m determined to pull myself out of this gutter. To be quite honest, it’s pathetic. I can’t STAND people that sit in a little hole in the ground whining about the life they’ve chosen or the cards they were dealt. But what am I doing? I’m a hypocrite at the very least. I need to pull my head out of my ass and go back to being me, being Ori. The Ori that I grew up with and am proud of is fun, carefree, silly. I am lovable, compassionate, and full of hopes and dreams so why not continue that life? So what if I’ve pressed pause longer normal; I’m young and I need to cherish that. I need to work on myself, my goals, and my aspirations. I want to inspire people, I want to be proud of myself, and most of all I want to be happy again. Thank you again to the many people who have believed in me before I could believe in myself. Lets do this!
