Please tell me I’m not the only one that gets very protective of my books when someone asks to borrow them.. Don’t get me wrong I’m flattered someone wants to read a book I’ve read but it’s just I don’t trust people with my babies, you’ll rip them or treat them poorly or loose them or never give them back and I just can’t have that.
My books. My babies.
“Well, you really made a mess of things,” he says. “I’m not even done,” I tell him.
“I’m not an angel, Jace. I don’t return library books. I steal illegal music off the internet. I lie to my mom. I am completely ordinary.”

You are safe and healthy.
You have a roof over your head.
You have clean food and water at your disposal.
You don’t have to wake up every morning wondering how you are going to make it through another day.
We forget how blessed we are until we witness another natural disaster or tragedy.
I don’t care how stressed out, or rough my week was because there are people out there affected by Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda. I can’t sit here thinking about my own problems when their problems are astronomically greater than mine. I just ask each one of you to just take a moment to pray for the children, women and men who have been caught up in the storm. Pray that families will be reunited with one another. Pray for resources and aid to reach everyone. Pray for the safety of the rescue teams and that their efforts don’t go to waste.
So instead of going out for a meal this week or grabbing that morning coffee, take that money you would’ve spent and donate it. A few donation goes a long way. You aren’t just providing them with food, water and shelter, but you are giving them HOPE.
My heart and prayers are with them.
My life is so miserable right now. I could feel pain, weakness, hatred, bitterness and sadness all over my system. I don’t know, there’s too many emotions to feel. I’m starting to hate the world and myself. I didn’t expect to be in this situation. I almost burst into tears hearing those words from my doctor. It seems too hard to resist these emotions. Until now, all i could do is to cry, sleep and cry, trying to lessen the pain, trying to escape all my problems. I don’t want to think anything. I don’t want to bother myself with all those unimportant things. I don’t even want to talk to anyone. All i want is time, for myself. I know you are just concerned about my condition and i can feel it. I’d really appreciate all your help. Its too much guys, you’ve done your part. I don’t know how to show how grateful i am having all of you. Honestly, i'm not used to people caring about me. What im trying to say is that i'm more likely to keep problems all by myself. So… I won’t be in school for a few weeks, I don’t want to celebrate my birthday even. I’ll be on my cousin’s. I hope you guys understand me.
"This was Jace being brave. Brave and snarky, and that was the way he wanted to go, unafraid and on his feet. Like a warrior. His death song would always be this-jokes and snideness and pretend arrogance, and that look in his eyes that said 'I am better than you'"
I learned something and I’d like to share it with you:
When someone gives you a compliment, just thank them. Whether you believe them or not, thank them. Don’t deny anything. When you say something bad about yourself that oppose it, it’s self destruction. It’s not being humble. Saying “thank you” isn’t being too proud. It’s just being thankful that someone appreciates you. It’s not being “pa-humble”. Don’t believe people when they say saying thank you is already mainstream because that is not true. Everyone deserves compliments sometimes. Just accept them and thank the person who said it.
