Music for All of Us College Kids!

Going to college is a funny thing.  It's like America - a melting pot of diversity.  With this in mind, I would like to share with you a personal playlist of music that I think is great for anyone who has experienced going to college - whether you have gone off to a university, or are just going to a community college like me.  :) goes:

College Kids - Relient K (I think this one's pretty self-explanatory...)

Don't Forget to Remember Me - Carrie Underwood

Break Out!  Break Out! - All Time Low

Fifteen - Taylor Swift (I know this is meant for high school freshmen, but it still relates pretty well to college freshmen as well)

Suddenly - Superchick

19 and Crazy - Bomshel

Teenagers - My Chemical Romance

Fingerprints - Katy Perry

The Party Scene - All Time Low

In Fate's Hands - The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

Forget and Not Slow Down - Relient K

Wishing Well - The Airborne Toxic Event

Stand in the Rain - Superchick

Vegas - All Time Low

Bigcitydreams - Nevershoutnever!

Letter to Me - Brad Paisley

Already Gone - Sugarland

There you have it - my playlist for all of us college kids!  I hope you like it, and enjoy the music.  I tried to put a little something for everyone on there!  :)  Whether you are excited about your new college life, or dreading it, there is something for you.  I hope you can relate to it, and maybe some of the music will even provide you hope for your future!

Arrogance is Ignorance.

Some people are just plain stuck up.  It's like they don't even get it.  It makes you wonder whether they have a really low or a really high self esteem.  Do they think they are so stinkin' awesome that they deserve to have their cake and eat it too?  Or are they really the opposite?  Are they just so unsure of themselves that they must annoy and insult those around them for a sense of self satisfaction? 

I think we all know a person like this.  If you don't, chances are you may be that person.  The question is, what do we do about these parasites who live off of attention?  They thrive on controversy centered around themselves, because that allows them to get the desired attention that they want without making it obvious.  It looks as if the starter of the controversy is the one who told the stuck up person off, while the stuck up person is just an innocent bystander.

No, the best thing to do is ignore them.  It will devastate their ginormous ego, and maybe you will help them realize that conceitedness does nothing for them.  Then again, maybe they won't realize this.  Maybe they are too caught up in their own little world.  However, at least you'll feel better!

Luckiest of All

Very few people realize the depth of his compassion.  He is under appreciated, because he does not let the outside world see the full extent of what an incredible man he is.  He never begs for attention.  He asks little of anyone.  He does not want to be a burden.  However, he will carry you if you need to be carried, and not look back once.  People pass him by on the street without ever knowing what an extraordinary person they have just passed.  You are lucky if you know him.  You are ignorant if you know him and don't love him.  I am not sure if he chose me, or if I chose him.  Was it God?  Was it fate...or destiny?  I may never know while living on this earth.  However, I guess that makes me the luckiest of all.  The force that brought us together does not necessarily matter as much as the fact that we are together now...and tomorrow doesn't matter yet.

Summer Broke Up With Me

We are nearing the end of summer.  For some of us, summer has already ended.  So, pack away your bathing suits, stop pushing the snooze button on your alarm, and hurry up if you want to even up that farmer's tan.  It's over.  It's not you, it's me.  You can do better than my popsicle pushin', sun tannin', bonfire bashin', lazy self. 

Why, summer, must you do this to me every year?  You tempt me with your easygoing charm every year, and I fall for you yet again.  Then autumn comes around, and I must face the facts.  I have to get out my coat, hear the crunch of leaves beneath my feet, and wither away gradually until winter.  I drink my hot chocolate, build snowmen, and buy presents for those I love until spring has finally sprung.  And then I can look forward to you again, oh summer...

I run back to you every time with open arms.

Trials and Tribulations, Victories and Celebrations!!!!!

Well, well, well.  Today has been a monumental day in my life.  I FINALLY GOT MY DRIVER'S LICENSE!!!!!  =D  I am 18, so really I should have had it by now, but due to an accident in driver's ed (not my fault), I lost my nerve for awhile.  I feel a sense of freedom now, like I am a little bit more independent.  Watch the comes Molly!!!  

Another monumental day in my life is August 16th:  my first day of college.  Weird, isn't it?  How time flies!  I am sad because I have so many friends left at my high school, but I am also thrilled to meet an array of new people.  It will be fun to experience such diversity all in one place!  I am happy to be starting this new life.  Look forward to hearing about my trials and tribulations, my victories and celebrations!  Stay tuned!   

On a different note, August 9th was the second month anniversary of when Ryan and I (my boyfriend) officially started dating.  :)  Love is a wonderful thing!

Run With Me!!!

I have so much energy I feel like running - well, hypothetically anyway.  I can't get enough, but I am getting too much.  I am a wildflower that has been picked, but is still free to do what she wants.  Feeling owned but still feeling free; it's the best feeling in the world.  I am a walking, talking cliche, off to run through a field of wildflowers and butterflies.  When did I get so predictable?  However, I am more spontaneous than ever before.  I am so much more than ever before, and I feel welcome.

Late at night. 
Everything seems kind of blurry,
like a window covered in muddy rain.

The medication won't kick in for a couple more hours.
He doubts it will make a difference anyway.
The pain lingers in every pore of his body.

He goes to bed every night at 7 o'clock,
because that is the only constant that remains in his life.
He goes to sleep at night just to wake up and do the same thing all over again.
They all say he's so calm, and so at peace with himself.  Ha!  If they only knew.
He routinely gets up just because he knows he will go to bed again at precisely 7 P.M.

His life is like a sad song, that doesn't have an ending.
It just plays on repeat forever and ever...
