Hope...it does wonders for the soul. I have hope for hugs in the near future.

Life experiences are something you don’t need to study for. Learn as you go and it will help shape you as a person and will teach you to become more independent and be able to think on your feet—a life skill you can’t learn about in a book or on the internet.
