why do i insist on watching Country Strong so much? knowing it takes me days to recover? it’s been three days and i’m still repeating scenes in my head and humming songs while waiting in the checkout line. 

okay…real talk. i watch it for this line, that "Give in to Me" song, and my perfectly healthy addiction to honest portrayals of addiction. there.

happy first day of the best days of the rest of your life. it’s a new era, folks. get into it.

“ I start a picture and I finish it. I don’t think about art while I work. I try to think about life. ”

i don’t think about art while i work either, i mostly think about donuts. but no, i totally get what you’re saying.

so true. and something i used to think was so scary but am now discovering is pretty awesome.

thoughtful thursday, get into it.

yes, i’ve been going thru old photos and keepsakes lately, but i swear (mom), i snagged this from a friend’s facebook page. it is not something i received while attending FSU, (mom). i don’t remember this kind of open-minded progression in my day. although, in a way, it does make me feel kinda proud to be a Seminole.

but more importantly, whoever you are, the people above and below you can hear? really? that’s pretty major…and probably a liiittle overkill. i mean, come on. even the noisiest of us shouldn’t be heard thru concrete dorm floors & ceilings. word of advice: don’t set the noise standard so high this early on. it’ll become exhausting to keep that up after a while. and since he’s probably not “the one” anyway, save your energy.

“ It’s the time to make choices you can be proud of. It’s the time to be the best version of yourself and in the process, somewhere along the way hopefully you attract the best version someone else has to offer. The more you challenge yourself, the higher your expectations become for your life and the people you want to have in it. ”
