9.1.14 This semester has been extremely tough and stressful already, so I bought myself a sunflower backpack to brighten my days up just a bit.

8.31.14 I constantly struggle with the want to build up walls around my heart - walls so high that you’d have to be prepared to fight in order to bring them down. I spend the day telling myself that I need to make it hard for you. That I need to protect myself. That I can’t let you in, at least not yet. That you need to work for it. But then when I see you, I’m in complete surrender. I let you inside my mind, I let you hear my thoughts, I let you have my heart. Just like that. I do this without thinking. But I also do this in hope that even though you don’t have to fight for my attention, my affection, and my love - I do this in hope that you still would. Because you want to earn me, you want to win me over, just simple because you want me.

We all believe in something that’ll rip us into shreds. We all know why it stings to open wide your chest. We all show signs of greatness that we hope that someone sees. Our broken teeth are scattered but we’re smiling underneath. A thousand bruising muscles still we’re running on and on. We all know names that ring like thunder rattling our walls. Everyone is yearning for a reason, for a cause. Something deep inside we’re holding on for dear life.

8.22.14 Nights like this are the reason I can remain sane through my crazy lacrosse and class schedule. The Oh Hellos opened for Needtobreathe and they both killed it. A huge storm was rolling in while the bands were transitioning and as soon as Needtobreathe started playing a flood of rain came pouring down on us while we were jumping, dancing, and singing along. It was so much fun to experience that with my team. Then after I got all the freshmen to come have a movie night at the field house. It was just a really good night.

You soften my heart and bring out my sweet side. No one else has that effect on me.

8.19.14 Tuesdays/Thursdays are my brutal days where I have hard classes  (calc two, engineering econ, and physics) back to back starting at 10:50am ending at 3:15pm. Then I had a meeting with my academic coordinator and then had to go pick up more books from the bookstore and then went to campus church. I was gone from my dorm for a total of 12 hours today. But today was actually pretty good. No, it was great. I ran into Abby, the sweetest girl I have ever met - seriously, I’ve never met someone who looks adorable doing just about anything. We ended up talking for an hour today which I really really needed. Her heart is completely consumed by the Lord and she radiates His joy and beauty. Just talking to her gave me a little motivation and encouragement for the year. And then at campus church tonight, I got this overwhelming presence of Heavenly Father’s love for me. He is truly amazing.

8.18.14 So first day of school was not a good one. On top of my best friend being weird and all distant, my phone got water damage and hardly works now and I have no idea what my professor was talking about in my calc two class.

8.17.14 And this is the college I’ve missed - driving around town in the back of a pickup truck listening to country music.

8.17.14 I am so lucky to have a father who works his hardest to provide so much for me.

8.16.14 We all hung out on the roof tonight telling stories of our summer. When it got to my turn all I could say was that it was very surprising. That’s when Ryan, the guy who is completely oblivious to sensitive subjects, blatantly adds on “cause of Riley.” Just like that. Not a question. And that was it of my summer story time, I couldn’t speak for a bit after that. With my silence, he kinda made some unfunny jokes and said just not the right things about the situation. I didn’t think that would sting that much. And I don’t blame the guys for teasing me a bit because I’m rather unemotional around my group and somewhat harsh, so they don’t realize how much things effect me when it comes to Riley.

Anonymous said: Saw who?

The one and only person I try to avoid at all costs here on campus. We don’t say his name anymore.

8.16.14 The inevitable has happened. It was bound to happen eventually I suppose, but I didn’t think it would be this soon. I saw him.

8.15.14 Ok, I’ve met all my quad mates and we all sat up talking until 1:30. I think this will be a good year.

8.15.14 Strange how out of it I feel here. This happened last year though too. I just have to get through the next three days and I’ll feel apart of it again. Or maybe my best friend just needs to hurry up and get over here already and I’ll feel better.
