Before I continue, I would like to apologize for taking this long to write a new post. I have been very busy these days, studying for my college exams. I should really learn to manage my time better, but at the moment, I don’t even know where to start. Thank you for your understanding.
So, we all have our favorite quotes. They may come from books, movies, poems, songs, inspirational people and other sources. They may even be our own. I, too, have some that I love and I always keep in a special place of my heart and mind. They accompany me on this journey called ‘life’.
“I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.

If not, it can’t be helped.”
