Let Love In

This is one of my new years resolutions. I’m not really all that big on new years resolutions, because I feel that if you put your mind to it you can begin a resolution whenever you want. But while I was sitting at my aunt’s house with the rest of my extended family, I couldn’t help but think about the possibility of having a girl next to me. Someone to share a new year’s kiss with, someone to talk to about all the funny stories our family has been a part of, someone to hold that night, to eat breakfast with the next morning, and to sit next to on the car ride home. I wouldn’t mind the cramped back seat, with our shoulders rubbing because of how squished we were in our tiny Subaru. I would love every second of it.

I went to a party last night. Just over at a friend’s place, nothing special. Literally, NOTHING special. I realized once I got there just how often our group of friends did the same thing every weekend. I felt like I was getting into a rut. I left an hour later. And as the cold wind blew on my face as I walked home, I couldn’t help of thinking back to the new years party, wishing I had someone to walk besides, someones hand to hold as we crossed the street. Someone to whisper to as we got in bed and tried not to wake my already sleeping roommate. Just someone.

I’ve been in a handful of relationships during my life, two really major ones, one which lasted the last year and a half of high school, and the other which stretched through the first two years of college. I learned a lot from these experiences, a lot more than I would have imagined. I always feel like we take away something very important from the relationships we are in, even if they end terribly or only last a few weeks. I didn’t treat these two girls nearly as well as I should/could have, and I realize that after the fact. I was younger, less mature, and just not 100% in the relationship.

But now I’m ready. I’m ready for miss right to show her face. I want her to be beautiful and smart and talkative. I want her to get shy when she gets nervous, I want her to laugh when we make mistakes together. And I want that cute booty, I want it to tease me constantly. I know she’s out there, it’s only a matter of time. But don’t you think she could be a little considerate and show her face soon. I’m starting to worry she’s not out there…

A Very Inspirational Weekend

So this weekend, more than other weekend, was especially inspirational for myself. I don’t know if it was the fact that I had a long car ride to think in, or that I saw a lot of family, both young and old, that I hadn’t seen for a while. Or it could possibly have been because I turned 20 this Friday. Either way, I realized a couple of things.

First of all, I learned that being 20, though not much different from being 19, (21 is where it all happens, boy will I feel old when next year rolls around…) is filled with many more responsibilities. No more being a teenager, time to grow up and face the real world. Time to put work before fun (but occasionally the other way around), and start getting a little more serious about my life after college. A big part of this summer is devoted to figuring out what I, essentially, “want to do with my life,” so I feel like now I need to start taking this task more seriously and explore all the options that really interest me.

I also realized a couple other little things, such as the fact that I love to cook so I should be doing that more and exploring different recipes and ingredients and such. Also, I would like to learn to ride a motorcycle one day, not only because it looks fun, but because of its fuel efficiency and its convenience. And lastly, if I want my children to have good relationships with their aunts, uncles, and cousins, then I need to have a better relationship and outlook on my cousins now. My cousins are a little bit strange, but really who isn’t? So seeing them this weekend made me feel better about them and I was able to talk with them more than I usually do when they visit.

Overall, a great weekend. For anyone following along at home, I haven’t posted in a while on here, but I hope to pick that up a little more because I enjoy blogging for myself and hopefully getting feedback from other bloggers like myself. So I will be posting more frequently! Until then, have a wonderful day! 🙂

Why do College Kids Drink So FREAKIN Much???

A little back story: here at Penn State we have a weekend known as State Patties Weekend (opposed to Saint Patties Day, cleaver huh?). It was created a while ago because originally Saint Patrick’s Day was not during Spring Break and was a fairly large drinking holiday. But one day, the big bad University moved Spring Break so that it fell when Saint Patrick’s Day did as well, make the holiday no more. So in retaliation, the students essentially moved Saint Patrick’s Day to a weekend when we were in school, renamed it, and continued on their merry way.

This past weekend was State Patties Weekend… Lucky for me I wasn’t home for a good bit of it, but my roommates reported the obscene events that happened when I returned. The police were on our floor busting people and parties, the elevator was littered with more beer cans than usual, and vandalism, drunken harassment, fights, and other illegal activities were happening left and right.

So my question is this: Why does it have to be like this? Why is getting drunk such a big deal? And why should the community suffer for the actions of a few idiot? Personally I think the past has been the biggest influence on setting the trends for years to come. But those future trends need to be stopped soon or something serious might come about. 

If you are in college or will be going to college soon, all I can say is this. Please don’t start drinking as a pastime. It can be fun when it is with good friends or in a certain environment, but don’t become a public humiliation. But when it becomes a weekly activity, on school nights or before special events, then it has gone too far. Please drink responsibly as well. The actions you make in college CAN stay with you for the rest of your life. Just take these words to heart for a second and don’t say I didn’t warn you!
