I'm Pretty Much The Breaker To Your Ice, And I Love It

I'm Pretty Much The Breaker To Your Ice, And I Love It

Does anyone else not loosen up in any conversation because you're already comfortable?

Summer is here and I have been doing nothing but catching up with old friends that I didn’t see over the school year, and potentially making new friends with people I didn’t talk to as often in high school.

With that being said, I’ve noticed a trait that I really enjoy about myself. I want to see if any of you can relate to this or feel the same way I do about it. Somehow, I literally don’t know why but I always seem to make my friends feel really comfortable every time I see them.

In other words, I find myself listening to them talk about who knows what for hours, and then they start acting goofier around me. It’s like watching two friends talk for awhile and you begin to notice both of them loosening up with one another, except I’m already loose and they’re not.

Maybe I’m just such a chill person and everyone I hang out happen to be a bit more shy than I am. Now that I really think about it, I’m not shy at all!

Don't get me wrong, I do have my chance to chime in and talk about my own issues but there is no need for me to be tense around other people because it is just a matter of getting to know the other person, which is not a huge deal to me.

I honestly don’t know what I do besides just sit there and listen them talk. Does just listening make a person feel comfortable? Is it something about my facial expressions or how invested I get into a conversation? What is it, because I genuinely don’t know.

I’m not complaining at all, I love listening and hearing all of my friend’s stories. I just genuinely have no idea what makes me such a “easy to talk to” individual.

I hold this trait of mine very dear to my heart because it makes me happy to see others loosening up while talking to me. Having others talk my ear off and joke around with me assures me that they are comfortable around me and that I have their trust.

I love hearing about everybody else's lifestyles because every human is different, and we all come from other paths of life. So I guess there are lots of upsides to being super chill around new people, or just anyone in general!

The more association I have with my friends, the more clearly I see this quality of mine. I am proud of people like myself who take time and effort out of our days to be a comfort blanket for someone who needs it.

My question for everyone reading this is does anyone else stand in the same shoes that I’m in? I am genuinely curious to hear how many of you out there share this same attribute.

Have a great week and WRECK EM TEXAS TECH.

When You Make A Girl An Aunt, You Change Her World In All The Best Ways

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a number-one fan

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

To My Friends That Are Graduating

Your graduation weekend is finally here.


I'm more proud of you than you'll ever know. I can't wait to see you walk across the stage this week this weekend and grab that diploma that you worked so hard for. I'll be forever thankful that I got to meet you, know you, and be along side you through this journey. I'm thankful for all of our study sessions, talks, and late night Campco orders. Zilly fries are on me next time I promise. After all, it's the little moments that I'll miss the most. I'll miss being able to run into Connelly and tell you all the details about my day from the essay I stayed up all night writing to the impromptu wine nights. I know even though you won't be on campus anymore, you won't be too far away and you'll always have a place in my heart and on my phone of course. I'll still text you to keep you updated on my life and to know from you all the crazy stories you have about being a real adult. New beginnings are a chance to find yourself outside of Villanova. I can't wait to see all of the things you will accomplish and the legacy that you will leave. You will make future Villanovans proud to call Nova home for the next few years. I know you will. Wherever you decide to call home, know that I am just a phone call or text away. I promise to visit often and I can't wait for you to come back on campus again. Your mark will be left here for years to come. I came to Villanova as an out of state student far away from home and no one from my high school had ever been to Villanova. Thank you for turning Villanova into a home away from home. Most importantly, I learned that friends are not just people that you spend four years hanging out with, but family forever..
