Idk, if I can send this from my email, but what I was looking for was a
license that would allow me to use my code in any commercial projects that
I may create in the future. Honestly, all the code licenses are kind of a

is one of the freest licenses available, not specifically that license per
say, just one that would allow me to use my code. :)
