BUT HE HAD 7 KIDS AND A WIFE TO FEED SO HE ENDED UP OWNING A GROCERY STORE AFTER SERVING IN WW2
TODAY MY DAD WAS CLEANING THE HOUSE AND FOUND SOME PENCIL DRAWINGS THAT MY GRANDPA DID AND ASKED IF I WANTED TO HAVE THEM AND I
CAN WE JUST LOOK AT THIS
MY BAD WEBCAM PICTURES DON’T EVEN DO THEM JUSTICE LIKE LOOK AT THESE
MY GRANDPA NEVER BECAME A FAMOUS ARTIST
BUT I WANT TO MAKE HIM KNOWN
“How was your day?”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
“I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”
You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. Listen carefully. People speak from the heart more often than you think.❞

Batman v. Bane : Batman of Shanghai
Well. Its been another year. 22 was… difficult to say the least. Same old story, but different challenges met along the way.
I learnt a few things and rediscovered old, almost forgotten embers in the past year. New friends, golden memories, a few new ways to whittle my time away meaningfully.
As I grow older, I appreciate the little things more and more and realise that my dad taught me the most valuable lesson I carry to this day - Be a good person and always stay true to yourself. Regardless of what other people think or feel about your decisions or path in life, never allow another person to make your choices for you. They are yours, and yours alone.
I’ve learnt family is of utmost importance. Mine have been absolutely supportive of all my choices, good or bad. I hope to raise my (if I do have any) children with the same values my parents raised me with, with a few of mine peppered in.
But lets not forget friends. ‘The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.’ The bonds forged and strengthened this past year with my friends is unforgettable. I thank God for every minute and every choice I’ve made to end up with such a great group of friends.
Its currently 11:37 p.m. on the 8th of April as I’m writing this and my birthday isn’t for another 23 minutes (holy shit turning 23 in 23 minutes so I can listen to 23 by Jimmy Eat World) but I guess I’ll be asleep by then.
Heres to reading many good books, writing music that will change history and friendships that are so powerful they last from this life into the next.
Happy 23rd Birthday to myself.
