    You got the right mindset man, glad your doing well. If you ever get stateside we gotta hang out.

    Your tearing it up in all your pics...

    Well yeah 3 years, what can I say. Life is great, surrounded by happy/good company and am just tryna do my best to live the life that I deserve. Go out and get it people, take life on, if you fail the first time try, try and try again, everyone fails at something. But can you accept not trying. Life is for living, so live it up people. The sun is always shining.

    One love, Nafi.

    Reading Mans search for meaning by Viktor Frankl at the moment here's a nice quote from it

    "Don't aim at success--the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long run--in the long run, I say--success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think of it".
    Say what you mean and mean what you say because those who mind dont matter and those who matter dont mind.

    Hey Nafi, don't forget me if you ever come to England. I will show you my PS3. That's not a euphemism, by the way.

    I've got 2 and a half years on you as an sci person. I can't say the date of my injury has ever slipped my mind. But glad it did yours.

    Is it really a surprise when people attack you?

    Why would you even shit on his joy? I'm starting to think that any misery you have in this life has been earned.

    I love hearing how well things are going for you. You did not create a monster, the monster was already there looking to inflict some doom and gloom.
    Please continue to post how things are going McLovin.
