How were you challenged today?

10/16/02 The hiking was really easy for me today, because maybe I came last year. The biggest challenge was for me today to sleep with Milia and Nikiee. They both love to talk at night and I can't sleep without talking, because I love to talk and talk and talk. If I don't talk at night my stomach gets fatter. That's why I can't keep everything in my stomach. And my another challenge was cell phone, because I love to talk on my phone with my friend Kasim for 3 hours. I thought at morning, "How I'm gonna survive without the phone." I called my friend Kasim 5 times, but his cell phone was off. I was sad for a couple of hours. Still I survived!!!!

I think…I won't fall down because I don't wanna fo home with one leg.

I hear…I hear people talking, and the sound of the wind

I see…I see big trees, rocks, backpacks all over the place

I touch…I touch my journal, pencil and rocks.

Ever since we used to cry about small things…
I have loved you.
Ever since we used to sneak out to house and count the stars…
I have loved you.
Now, I myself have forgotten
since when I have loved you.
But I can only say,
that I have loved you and only you.

I tried to forget you.
I tried very hard not to think about u.
But I just could not.

He should you love you
The way you are
Not the way, he wants you to be
If he try to changes you
Then it's not a love,
it's a compromise
And jasi, in love people never do compromises.
