Wanted: Professional Ice Queen lessons

My freeze-out game is weak.

And the level at which I care about people who don’t give a flying flip about me is TOO DAMN HIGH. 

Love doin’ the D-town boogie with this girl every weekend.

Being single is hard, but breakups are harder.

Way harder. Holding out for Mr. Right instead of falling head over heels for Mr. Right Now will always be worth it. 

Sometimes, there’s no way to know. But I usually have known that the guy I was seeing probably wasn’t gonna magically turn into marriage material in a few months. 

I deserve to hold myself and those that get to be in my life to the highest of standards.

Does anyone ever wish they could read books again like it was the first time?

"Being in love is a good thing, but it is not the best thing. There are many things below it, but there are also things above it. You cannot make it the basis of a whole life. It is a noble feeling, but it is still a feeling. Now no feeling can be relied on to last in its full intensity, or even to last at all. Knowledge can last, principles can last, habits can last; but feelings come and go."

Is it weird to wish that C.S. Lewis could be a dear friend of mine?

"But if you look at the people who are consistently achieving their goals, you start to realize that it’s not the events or the results that make them different. It’s their commitment to the process. They fall in love with the daily practice, not the individual event. What’s funny, of course, is that this focus on the process is what will allow you to enjoy the results anyway."

Must remember this when work gets “boring.”

Cafe Brazil was taking too long last night, so we took matters into our own hands. Scrambled eggs, red peppers, cheese and cilantro taste way better at 3 am. Also when you make it yourself. 👍 Not pictured: Tess’s delicious biscuits and 4 very happy campers. #latergram

I know I’m a day late but hopefully not a dollar short. JUST LOOK AT HIS SUSPENDERS.

He was 20, I was 17. We had dated for a month that winter but then decided we shouldn’t keep dating, because it would be hard when I went to Missouri in the fall. I asked him to be my date with a poem that I wish I still had somewhere. 

He had been to college for a semester and had some crazy times, but didn’t complain a bit when my friends and I didn’t drink a drop of alcohol before, during, or at the after party. 

He was such a good sport and we all had such a good time. My hair was stupid and someone should have told me to put on a necklace but DANG the cut of that dress looked good on me.
