Maybe…

Standard

For some reason..

I feel like many of this generation’s women have a hard time communicating their feelings to their husbands, boyfriends, etc. and it can end up causing a lot of problems; miscommunication and misunderstanding are two of the biggest reasons for relational arguments and disagreements.

This is probably because of the rise in social media use; people don’t know how to talk anymore! Therefore, a lot of feelings and emotions end up thrown into subliminal Facebook statuses or quote pictures on Instagram that somehow relate to the way she is feeling at the time.

Do guys take the hint? Well, we don’t really know! 

I guess we post these things hoping that they will be correctly translated – ha!

So here:

-Maybe she wants you to respond to her text message(s) or call to see what’s up.

-Maybe she wants to hang out with you.

-Maybe she wants to feel like you appreciate her and care about her.

-Maybe she wants to go out on a date!

-Maybe she wants you to just tell her how you feel and stop being so confusing.

-Maybe she just wants you to notice her.

-Maybe she wants to be your girlfriend.

-Maybe she’s mad and wants you to see that you really hurt her feelings (whether you think you did or not).

-Maybe she’s sick and wants a cup of tea.

-Maybe she wants you to do yoga with her.

-Maybe she wants you to be proud enough to take her out in public – in the daytime.

-Maybe she wants to stop feeling like the side chick or the second choice.

-Maybe she loves you and wants to tell you but doesn’t know how.

So, there you go. It’s a partial women-men dictionary.

This post is random, I know.

Or maybe it’s subliminal? 🙂

Freshman Year. Check.

Standard

Well hey.

I guess you can say I got swept up in the end of the year and that would be true! I got really involved with my church and then finals came along and things were really crazy. But I am back home now for the summer, a birthday has passed (yes, I’m nineteen), and I’m done with my freshman year of college. Wow, that’s really hard to believe.

I’d like to recap this past year at college. No, I’d like to recap what I’ve learned. Why? Because I would never go back and relive my freshman year again, but I have sure gained a lot of knowledge from it.

You know, it isn’t even my college experience. It just happened to be the time that this took place. My life at Ohio State was great. I met some great people, learned a lot of great things, and participated in so many great activities. But, most importantly, I have found out who I am. This wasn’t until recently, literally in the last two months, but I have realized what it is to figure out who you are. People say they just “get it” one day and know who they are, but I believe that you find yourself in the lowest of low.

Why?

Because in that dark place, when you’re probably alone and you feel like you have no one, you’re just stuck with yourself. You and yourself have to pick up the pieces. You may find someone that is willing to help you, but when it comes down to it, it’s all up to you. The best part is, though, that as you pick up each piece, each brick that makes you YOU, and start putting things back together, you learn a little bit more of yourself. When you’re broken, some of those pieces can’t be replaced, so sometimes you have to recreate that part of your life and that’s a good thing. That’s how you figure out who you are.

So who am I?

I’m just a girl. A simple girl. I was raised in the suburbs. I go to The Ohio State University. I strive for perfection. I have big dreams. I try my best at almost everything I do. I love God. I love my dog. I love extra cheese on anything. I have a great family. I have amazing friends. I really enjoy driving my car around with the windows down and the music loud. I have a thing for Peter, Paul & Mary and The Beatles. I play the piano and sing at the top of my lungs when I’m home alone. I’m a little weird.

I may be just a girl. But I am ME; the ME I figured out by myself.

That’s what I’m proud of. ♥

Be You.

Standard

“You are always the best at being you,

Even if you don’t know who you are yet.”

-Justin R. Swails

In a long telephone conversation, my intelligent boyfriend said this to me and it struck me as the perfect quote for today to follow up yesterday’s post. Why? Because it seems as though the world pressures people to follow the example of others whether it is your parents, celebrities, political figures, etc. and sometimes that is taken to the point where people become copies. There is obviously an extreme difference in looking up to someone as a role model and taking their personality and characteristics as your own. It is quite a shame, really, because you were born you for a reason.

Like I said yesterday, each of us is a different piece of artwork. Not one piece of artwork can ever be exactly or perfectly duplicated. While there may be replicas of Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night, there is only one version of the original (hence the word original). The thing is that there is a reason for each piece of artwork. Whether it is an inspiration to make music or dance, a therapy for someone who is sick, a representation of someone’s feelings – there is a purpose for each of us on this planet.

That’s why you mustn’t be a copy. Who can serve your purpose besides you?
