This is diary is now 8 years old and still going strong. It started when I was 16 and completely lost. Well I'm 24 now and still lost, but I know I'm so much closer to what I want in life. This diary is an ongoing success story, that could go bad at any moment. It chronicles my attempts to understand the world and myself, so I can try to find a place in it.

I've had to add a password to my diary for personal reasons, but if you're interested in reading, please email me at and I'd be more than happy to have a new reader!

My favorite movies:

Waking Life
comments: An incredibly deep philosophy movie. About the relationship between reality and dreams. Animated in a very artistic way. They filmed the whole movie normally then animated overtop of it, giving it a very surreal feel about it...
Vanilla Sky
comments: Almost a Hollywood version of Waking Life. Same philosophy. Very awesome movie!
Edward Scissor Hands
comments: This is a story about being unique. About being different. About creativity. And about the persecution that inevitably follows.
Requiem For A Dream
comments: Beautifully filmed. A work of art. Just see it. About how dreams can drag you in to a nightmare.... Another Darren Aronofsky film. My personal favorite.
comments: Other movies: Memento, SLC Punk, Romeo + Juliet, Fight Club, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, American History X, Usual Suspects, Contact, Shawshank Redemption, Donnie Darko, American Beauty, Me and You and Everyone We Know
