My most embarrassing moment of college so far… Falling down a hill

My most embarrassing moment of college so far… Falling down a hill

The university I attend has a lot of hills, which can be really pretty, but also really exhausting if you’re not used to much … or any physical activity like me. There is a really big hill right in front of my residence hall. It has quickly become my favorite spot on campus to get away to and relax in the nicely shaded greenery, even though I’ve only been here less than 4 days. It’s also a nice spot to people watch. I even saw a student running up the steep hill like it was no big deal – pretty impressive! While on the phone with my mom, I spot one of my guy friends, Griffin, from high school walking into my residence hall. I’ve been trying to cross paths with him a couple times, but it just hadn’t worked out. I really wanted to talk to him about my first couple days at college, so I decide to say a quick “goodbye” to my mom and start running down this hill!

What I’ve learned my first two days of college

What I’ve learned my first two days of college: Advice and reminders

  • Stop judging everyone so quickly. They are all just trying to fit in and do their best, just like you.
  • It’s important to remember everyone’s names. Or at least make your best effort to.
  • It will all be okay. College is here and it’s scary and it’s overwhelming and stressful, but you got this. This is what the school system has been training you for your entire life.

To the man I thought I loved

To the man I thought I loved,

I’m so happy to say I’m finally over you.

Thanks for showing me the real side of you at last so I can move on.

I thought you could be my first, and even maybe my last, but I knew that was wishful thinking.

I was just too impatient to wait for something better to come along.

Too comfortable with the man I thought you were. The man I fabricated in my head.

Too stressed and using you as my sweetest distraction.

I hope someday you find a direction.

Maybe you’ll grow up when you find the next girl

Perhaps you’ll think about someone other than yourself for once.

Your description makes you sound like you’re pretty amazing

But in reality it’s plain to see you’re an


Dear new lover

Dear new lover,

Please don’t be the person my mom is afraid you might be

I’m falling in love with you

I’m sorry for any times I’ve ever hurt you already

Please don’t be lying when you say you could be my last

I’d sacrifice for you, I hope you know

But that doesn’t have to mean sacrificing my dreams

Sometimes life needs detours, and that’s okay

I feel safe with you, happiest with you

You’re intelligent, forthcoming, and gorgeous

I see you and me in our ranch in Big Sky Country

Let’s chase our dreams together

Hold me tight and never let me go

I miss you

I don’t know why I insist on torturing and teasing my self

With wandering thoughts of what we could’ve been if you never left

I try to block you out of my mind

That somehow seems healthier than thinking about you with each passing hour

Suppressing my feelings isn’t foreign to me

I sit and wait and lust and dream for you

Lonely and longing for your hands to push my hair behind my ear

For you to press your body up against mine

To feel the fire of passion your lips gave mine

To see your big blue eyes again

To be so close we become tangled into one

I insist on torturing and teasing myself with thoughts of you

In hopes you’ll be back someday soon
