As we walk along the journey of life together, we impact each other everyday. We come into contact with so many different people each day and we leave our mark. Just like those hand prints we see on sidewalks, impressions last a lifetime. It makes me wonder about the legacy each person decides to leave behind. When I look back in my life I can never recall myself having a role model. I remember always wanting someone just to be there for me when I was going through difficult times, and just someone who i could aspire to be. Although I never had that person, I become strong and persevered in life. I learned to defend myself and hard work will bring rewards… sometimes. I become someone with strong convictions and an open mind. Someone who could stand alone in a crowd of many. I will leave a legacy that inspires others to be open minded, fair, and resilient. My legacy is of a role model and mentor, to open the doors for the people trying to leave their impressions next. For that, people will remember me. For that, my name shall never die.

In geography, a confluence is the meeting of two or more bodies of water. Known also as a conflux, it refers either to the point where a tributary joins a larger river, called the main stem, or where two streams meet to become the source of a river of a new name, such as the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania creating the Ohio River.
The term is also used to describe the meeting of tidal or other non-riverine bodies of water, such as two canals or a canal and a lake. Below is a collection of 10 incredible confluences around the world. For more, there is a fascinating list of notable confluences on Wikipedia that I recommend you check out.
The confluences below were selected for their dramatic visual contrast. Thus, culturally significant confluences such as the Sangam near Allahabad, India, where the sacred…

I don’t think I am misunderstood, I think people these days do not have confidence within themselves. To have the fortitude to stand up for what you believe in, is a quality many people seem to lack. It is easier for people to cower, be quiet, and not stand up for what is fair. I know how is feels like to be quiet. To watch people just walk all over you and push you aside just because they know you won’t defend yourself. I remember those days and I will never return to those days. I promised myself to always fight for the answers I deserve. To fight for what is fair, not just for me but for everyone. To be honest with myself as well as others, because i would want them to be honest with me. Finally, to have the strength to be independent and have the courage to stand in protest alone. The peak of the mountain never seems to come closer, but I shall always continue to keep pushing this boulder to the top. Good night and stay sexy
It’s that feeling in your heart that you can’t explain, and you just know what you are doing is right. The past weekend still seems unreal to me and I have tried so hard to find out why I feel as I do. Then it clicked in my head. There are somethings in this world we cannot explain. However, we justify our actions through our emotions. I knew for some reason I was meant to dance for 46 hours for kids with cancer. I knew this the path i have and had to take to become the person I want to become. These kids have taught me more about myself then I could ever imaged. And as I went through my ups and downs this weekend, everything just felt right. Just like another day. Just like how tomorrow I will feel the same. This is because I know I can never stop. These children with cancer can’t just stop having cancer. We need to keep fighting for what is right in this world. No child should have their innocence taken from them at such a young age. I am finally starting to find myself. And my findings have shown I just want to give back to the world. I need to make things for everyone, and the underdog will never go unnoticed, the innocence shall be heard, and the kind shall never falter. I found that putting a smile on someone’s face is what makes me happy. I inspired tomorrow’s miracles this weekend, but those miracles have inspired me to never stop. I had my highs and my lows, which reminded me of why I was dancing. I wanted to sleep but knew i couldn’t, because these children get tired of fighting but cannot stop. And we know we can fight together. We are ONE family. I love my family and the memories I continue to make. Forever & Always FTK Goodnight and stay sexy
Family is a tricky concept for me. Family goes beyond blood, but to the emotional connections we make with people. For the majority of my time alive, I have felt alone. I lacked the feeling of a family. I have never been supported and no one has ever had my back. I was forever alone. I would lay awake in bed at night praying to God I could just have one person to confined in. Three years ago I found my best friend. She started to teach me the ideals about what it means to have a family. But my heart and mind was still guarded, and she stuck through. I look at where I am today and see a group of people I care about, and care about me. Although it might be a small group, the support of one another is large. This is my family. And as I go into this weekend, dancing for 46 hours straight for kids with cancer, I can’t wait to experience every minute of it with my family. From my best friend who has showed me what THON is, and i would still be sitting in the library by myself if it wasn’t for him, to my dancer partner and everyone in between. I love and care about each one of thing. Tonight I can finally go to sleep with tears of joy in my eyes, because God has answered my prayers. We are… family. Good night and stay sexy
I believe everyone has a superpower. I believe most people never realize their superpower. We all have strengths and personalities that guide our future. It is trying to unleash our full potential, where many of us fall short. Although we could be beaten and bruised by others, the only person only ourselves back lies within. We believe we cannot do something, therefore we do not do it. I am starting to realize my superpower. But I am afraid of losing myself in the process. I live for others, never myself. Giving back to others makes me happy, and i haven’t been happy for a long time. Good night and stay sex
It’s hard to find the light at the end of the tunnel. I am engulfed in the dark abyss. Lost, I wander staggering to find my way. Blind to the corruption surrounding me. I find peace when i close my eyes, and see no different when they are open. My peace is bleak. It is war wrapped under fake smiles. They are coming. I do not know what for, or their intentions, but I feel their glare. The angry eyes cast demons upon me. It’s hard to find the light at the end of the tunnel. Especially when there is no light.
