    Soy mas de la mitad mejor de lo que tu crees, con una pizca de maldad menor o igual a la tuya... No he llegado a donde quiero, pero no estoy donde estaba, entonces... todo va como debe!!! I am more than half better than you think, with a hint of evil or less yours ... I have not gotten to where I want, but I&# 39; m not where I was, then ... everything is as it should!
