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.

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.
8.15.14 Today has been a good travel day. No delays, no missed flights, no nonsense. This never happens.
8.15.14 The only good thing about having such an early flight was being able to watch the sunrise during take off.
8.15.14 This day consists of about a total of eleven hours traveling with only two and a half hours of sleep. Let’s go.
8.15.14 Peace out, H-town. ✌️
The moon stole your face tonight.
8.14.14 Since tonight is my last night before I go back up to school, I took one last joy ride through my little part of Texas. Leaving a place is always a little bittersweet, even a place that I’m not that fond of. I used to dread coming here and I would always hate the time I spent here, but after this summer, I have learned to make the most of it. I have gone through too much heartache to let another place make me feel like an outcast.
