Dragon's Loyalty Award

After such a busy and exhausting week, the all too sweet Meghan @Hey Meghan nominated me for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award. This totally put a smile on face, because there are days I really feel like I let y’all down by putting my blog on the back burner when my “life” takes over, but friends like her keep me going! So thanks girl! ❤


  • Put the logo at the top of your post.
  • Thank the person who nominated you and put a link to their post.
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers.
  • Post 7 facts about yourself.


  1. I am currently pursuing a long distance relation— oh wait! actually we haven’t defined it yet…. He wants to wait until we meet in person in December, so I am in a state of anxiously awaiting the end of the year!
  2. Most people don’t know I have naturally curly hair. Why? You ask, well because I straighten it. Why? You ask, well because it stays for three days like that. [My philosophy: if I wore it curly every day no one would think it was cute lol]
  3. I have a serious addiction to Dr Pepper and I firmly believe it makes the world taste better!
  4. Bluebell is the only ice cream I like to eat, so I am seriously craving ice cream at the moment.
  5. I am practically an old woman trapped in a young girl’s body due to my love of knitting, scrapbooking, and reading.
  6. I am sitting in the floor while I type this.
  7. My bathroom is my current obsession!!


And a very big thanks again to Meghan for making my week just a little brighter!!

Mid-Week Exhaustion

So I had hoped that I would be able to start writing regularly once school started, because I would have a set schedule and all, but that has yet to happen! 😦

My schedule has gone from having nothing to do to having everything and more to do. My work schedule alone is absolutely ridiculous. What started out as a 31 hour week (which is crazy for the first week of classes) to way more than that, because so far every shift I have clocked in early and had to stay late! :O

Needless to say I am just extremely exhausted. But it is always a relief to know that my guy is always there to talk to me at the end of the day. No matter how tired he is, he stays up late to talk about our days and other stuff which always leaves me smiling when I go to sleep! How did I get so lucky? 🙂

Once my work schedule calms down and I get caught up on school, I will be back to posting on a regular basis. Thanks for sticking around! Y’all rock!

First Day Jitters

change 2 - Edited

It was the first day of classes for me today and as I looked around, I realized that most everything was the same. Tons of people everywhere, but most had their heads down, eyes glued to their phone or they had their headphones in oblivious to the world around them. I won’t lie, I am usually one of those ‘got my headphones in and I’m on a mission’ type of people, but I figured why not go throughout my day without putting my headphones in… maybe I could experience something new.

The first thing I noticed was that without my headphones in, I seemed more approachable. I walked downstairs this morning to go catch the bus and my roommate asked if she could go with me. So went together and socialized the whole way; I felt much less alone having her with me, but I don’t think she would have asked if I would have had my headphones in.

Being a junior is a weird feeling. I am now technically an upperclassman and I have friends through my three semesters at this school, so again as I walked I was able to smile and wave and talk to people instead of being holed up inside myself, so I didn’t feel as alone. I ended up having lunch with two friends and that is a great thing that I think we take for granted.

Right before my last class, my friend texted me asking if I had made any new friends and I, in all seriousness, replied “No, but no one talks to each other on the first day.” But after I said that, I couldn’t help but wonder why? We always sit there and stare at our phones or our laps and we don’t acknowledge those sitting around us and if someone does happen to speak, we all stare at them in shock and irritation. So I decided to try not to be one of those people. I went to my next class and sat down next to a girl in the back and just decided to strike up a quiet conversation. I was so lame at first noting that I had issues finding the classroom and then noted the pizza place her cup was from. Turned out we had a little in common and have another class together. 🙂

After that experience, I think I may go headphone-less for awhile just to see if I can interact with people more and seem like less of a bitch. I hope to see some changes in people this semester, although that is a long shot, but I want to see more friendliness… It changes the morale of all of the people around.

P.S. I hope all the others starting school today had a good one! 😀

Are we going to sustain this high?

Will you be there when I cry?

What about the days when I feel dark inside

Are you going to stay in my life?

Do we have enough love to always do what’s right?

Will you always look into my eyes?

Are you going to stay by my side?

When things get tough and life is rough

When I’m going through stuff

Will I be able to depend on you?

Will you help me pull through?

When I’m not all sunshine and rainbows

Will you hold me or let me go

Answers to these questions I would like to know.

Can We Talk For 5 Minutes?

talking makes my day

Throughout the day, there is nothing I want more than to talk to you. I want to tell you everything, because you can’t be here. I want to tell you about all the laughs, all the smiles, all the tears, all the anger, all the frustration…. just everything! The greatest part about you, is that you want to hear them all too.

Text messages flood my phone all day and I smile every time it vibrates alerting me of words from you. We talk about silly stuff, deep stuff, sappy stuff, future stuff, life stuff…. just everything! It makes me happy knowing that I can call you about whatever, whether I have a rant, a joke, a story, or I am freaking out, because I can’t figure out how to use my washing machine (hence last night 😉 )

You are the best, because you not only want to hear from me, but you want to talk to me as well. We can keep up with each other… this is practically a miracle between the both of us talking really fast and being all over the place. You have never once told me that you think I talk too much, instead you encourage hearing from me. So many facts make you a keeper, but knowing you appreciate how much I love to express myself through talking makes my insides flutter.

I love how we will sacrifice sleep in order to not miss an evening conversation with each other. Last night you wanted to go to sleep at midnight. I got home at 11:55 and called you asking for just five minutes! 4 hours later and we still weren’t ready to hang up. It is incredible that once we start talking to each other, the exhaustion slips away and the words just keep coming.

Skype is a wonderful tool and getting to see you is even better, but I long for the day when I can actually reach out and touch you and feel your warmth. It cracks me up that you broke your mic, so for days I would talk and you would type and then last night we talked on the phone while skyping…. oh the struggles that make life fun!

And even when we aren’t talking, it is such a sweet time. Sometimes I get caught up in the moment and actually have no words, but instead we just sit or lay there quietly listening to each other breathe and just gazing at each other. I feel just as much in these times as I do when we are fighting on getting our words out fast enough.

Soon I won’t be able to call or skype, but I am going to embrace writing letters. It will be so romantic and it will be our thing. I can’t wait, because after all of this, we will be together; I know it!
