My Philosophy on Life
People live they're lives with different mottos and rules to live by. Some live wild and dangerously while others are reserved and quiet. I live my life on a day-to-day basis.

I see it like this-I'm going to keep my friends close just because they're my friends but I'm going to keep my enemies closer because they're the ones that might plot something or try to start trouble with me so I want to keep them real close.
