I've got this nice plastic rubber maid storage drawer set that I keep next to my bed, has my clock radio on it, so I guess you can call it a night stand. And it is a singular.

If you just be yourself, you'll never have to be anyone else.

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
I am a one way motorway
I’m the one that drives away
Then follows you back home
I am a street light shining
I’m a white light blinding bright
Burning off and on!

(Uh huh)

It’s times like these you learn to live again
It’s times like these you give and give again
It’s times like these you learn to love again
It’s times like these time and time again

I am a new day rising
I’m a brand new sky
To hang the stars upon tonight
I am a little divided
Do I stay or run away
And leave it all behind?

(Uh huh)

It’s times like these you learn to live again
It’s times like these you give and give again
It’s times like these you learn to love again
It’s times like these time and time again

That's a wrap people!
