Computer’s running hot,

The idea file is not…

We talked about love

And working above

Distractions that help us not.


Applauded young ones learned,

His glory awaits us here…

I give Him praise

For wisdom raised,

No good from His children He spares!

But I found my way out of the woods and managed to keep my grades up, maintain my amazing friendships, and get my health under control. So I thought I would share a few tips I have learned about living the best life you can.
