Can we talk about how amazing my big is? She painted this for me and said to hang it somewhere so that I would see it every day. The words on it are how some of our friends describe me. It’s wonderful to have this during moments of self doubt, to be reminded that I’m loved. I am so ridiculously blessed to have these people in my life and I appreciate them so much. Thanks guys. (I’m still laughing at whoever said “loud”…)
Recently on Vanderbilt University’s campus, a girl was raped at a frat party. On 4chan-like website collegiateacb.com, some frat boys gathered to discuss the event. They did not discuss how to prevent things like this from happening again, but to figure out who the girl was that “ratted” and belittled her, calling her names ranging from delusional to bipolar to cunt.
- this is not in any way ok
- there is now a big campaign on facebook to change your profile picture to the below picture in order to tell her, whoever she is, that we stand in solidarity behind her speaking out about her rape.
- I am telling you guys this in case you, too, were raped and were silenced by the rape culture so prominent in this culture. This is for you too.
- WE STAND BEHIND YOU
- WE ARE THE GIRL THAT RATTED

this halloween I’m dressing up as “drum corps member who arrived at the housing site at 3 am and realized he has to climb up three flights of stairs to get to the sleeping area”
Tonight, my two pledge sisters and I were initiated into our chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota. Love and Roses y’all, it’s official.
Someone should encourage me to practice..
Practice or you’ll suck
"Thankfulness begets joy." Sometimes I am so overjoyed that I go to a Christian college. It’s weird to think that my freshman year is almost over and I’ll be leaving this place soon. I have learned so much here and have grown drastically. God is so good. I can think of way more than "at least 10 good things" to thank him for.
We are talking about our final in my English class, which we’re having at 8 in the morning. A foreign girl who is always perfect, always has her act together, and always goes above and beyond looked at the professor and said in front of everyone “I’m just gonna warn you now. I’m not going to mentally be here for the final.” #preach
