    Life changing book to a 17 yr old teenager what would it be???? To teach them about following your dreams, making something of yourself, nurturing positive friendships/relationships, being a good person... Anything with a deep message that you feel would have an impact on a young adult about many different areas in life.... Why would you choose?

    A book called "Feel the Fear, and Do It Anyway", the author's name escapes me at the moment.

    "Do What you Love - the money will follow." "Feel the fear and do it anyway" is also good.

    Marvin Stanley Pigeon was no ordinary pigeon. While other pigeons spent their time grubbing for food, Marvin Stanley Pigeon worked away on his book on the window ledge outside the Manuscript Room of the Public Library in Bryant Park. He wanted to get his novel done in time for Macmillan's spring list. Marvin's writing did not endear him to the other pigeons. As he wrote he thought of how the best-seller "Jonathan Livingston Seagull", had inspired him to become a writer.

    I visit my school today, I felt the smell of nostalgic in mid-air. I can feel the experience playing back in my head. From quiet teenager, eccentric, trying on new faces every-time. I felt fragments of memory from when I was at summer school. Everything felt coming back to me. I felt like I understand and I wanted to help them

    No, I don't wish I was seventeen, actually I thought about going back to fourteen with my "now" self. "How easy it would be to endure school", I said. I thought I moved on with myself but I didn't.

    I always felt that something wasn't right... I felt so empty that I didn't help others or had a fun time. That's what got me sad.icon_sad.gificon_sad.gificon_sad.gif
