on birthdays.

guess who that is???
i love birthdays. i love other people's birthdays. i love my birthday. i just love them. it's a day to celebrate life and do whatever you damn well please. so, because it's my birthday, i want you to read a quote of someone i have always looked up to - steve jobs - who sadly retired, most likely because of health problems, on the eve of my birthday. it's always good to take stock of your life, and where you are, around the time of your birthday. i know i still have a lot to work on in order to live the life i've always wanted, but i think i'll get there. and, if not, i'll have a damn good time along the way. i can guarantee that.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
