You Will Find Your Place I Promise
The Oddessey

To all the freshman or transfer student in college, I know it may seem not likely right now but you will find where you belong. I know that by now Welcome Week and all the events are all over and class has started so you're probably wondering "Now what?".

It's discouraging to watch everyone around you making friends during events designed to do that while you aren't. It will be OK though! Yeah events to help you make friends are great and you could meet your future best friends there, but that's not the only opportunity you have to make friends.

Talk to someone next to you in class, go play volley ball with strangers, join a club or two. It works I promise. Don't get discouraged if it doesn't work on everyone. You may run into a few people who aren't as open to you, but that's their loss. You will find a group of people that you fit in with and all of this will be worth it. They may even become your best friends.

Never forget you might not have friends where you are right now but you will and in the mean time you still have friends and family back home that love you. They're only a phone call away!

Finally, DO NOT STRESS! It has only been a week or two. Friendships take time!

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

The Heart Wants what the Heart Wants
Where to start...... Let me start with the cliche that life throws us curveballs and what we do with it is what counts.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
