I exercise mostly on my own, using the Power 90 Fat Burning…"
"Well welcome to the forums friend! I hope you find a good bit of wisdom amongst the blog. I always suggest this to young people, but have you looked over the Heading Out On Your Own series? I've been going over it a few times…"
Ahoy there, brothers of America. I'm Kaustubh, a seventeen year-old currently starting my final year in high school.

"I work strange hours so I find a simple pleasure is to sit outside on my balcony at around 4-5AM just before first light and smoke a joint and read for an hour. Just the dead silence and time alone is a welcome relief.
