I so want a Ferrari Enzo. The lines are just so amazing. If there’s one car that can make me abandon self-worth and humility (which I have), it’s that car. I also want to take up photography.

Bills and more bills will obviously take precedence.
Sometimes being a guy can be so hard. But sometimes, sometimes it’s just so fun.

PS: I don’t think I’d ever get into RC (radio-controlled) cars. It seems so…dorky. (You, yes, you, I’m calling it dorky!) Sandman for life!PPS: How's the new look? Is it too bright or too red or too something? Let me know! Thanks!
PPPS: Here's the previous colour scheme and you'll know what my friend's comment means.
