What crazy stories are going to be told?

What Would They Say About Me?
Harley Kearney

I have always wondered what my print would look like on the world. How would I be remembered? Would my friends and family miss me? Would they tell strangers about the crazy memories we shared? Or would they tell them about my good heart and how I would give my shirt off my back just to help someone in need? I hope that they will go to strangers and tell them how I tried to change the world. The reason why I joined the army. Tell them about how I would sleep for hours and be cranky waking up. That you can try to wake me up four times and I will still fall back to sleep. Or how I would laugh with my best friend Emily for hours on end just because of something stupid I did.

I wonder if you will tell them about my dreams of being in the SVU and flying in helicopters. How I will change my job career seven times and drove you crazy, but yet I still stuck with psychology and the Army. Will you tell them about my procrastination? Will you tell the stranger about getting my heartbroken yet I still will find the good in people. Make sure you tell them about my work ethic and how I will make sure the job gets done no matter the obstacles that pop up. I hope you tell them about my smile because it is KILLER and my eyes they will win over anyone's heart. Most importantly tell them about the love I gave and the dreams I had and how I wanted to make an impact in this whole scary world.

If I have kids tell them how I was growing up, tell them every memory you have of me, tell them how much I wanted them and how much I loved them. Tell them how much I care about them, tell them everything you can think of, tell about my parents, my friends. I woke up one day and my dad was gone, I woke up and my two best friends were never coming back. I want to hear the stories of my father. How I have his eyes, his smile, his hair, I want to hear about the stories of him growing up. People ask about my tattoos, and the stories come out. I tell the strangers about you dad, and about you Colton. I tell them about the love you gave me, how you stayed up till 4 am to talk to me, I tell them about the love I have for you. That you are my best friend and you are always here. So to my friends and family tell the strangers about me.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
