It's lengthy, but I want to dedicate this space to my wife. Hope it inspires you in certain ways after reading. Love is not always a sad and negative thing. It can sometimes be beautiful.

When I was nineteen years old back in MIRC days, my nickname was AcidBurn, inspired by the movie, “Hackers”, starring Ethan Hawk. Through chat rooms, I got to know this lovely lady whom we stayed in touch via the internet for almost a year.
