hope lives.


My name is Lee, I'm 21, and I JUST graduated college. If all goes well, I'll be starting law school in August 2013. I have a little over half a year to take control of my health (before school takes over my life) and I plan on doing so. I came to Tumblr once again a few months ago and found a wonderful, supportive, and very motivating community. I've had some personal issues in the last few months, and as a result I've had a few set backs...but i'm back and i mean business. I keep reminding myself that failure only happens if I give up, and i refuse to let that happen. feel free to message me, I like talking to new and interesting people :)
