my best friend came to visit me at college this week. we had a pretty great night. one of my friends from school took us off roading in his truck late on wednesday night. it took us about 3 hours to drive the whole trail and it ended up being pretty fun. we went star gazing in the mountains, which was absolutely breathtaking. we also got stalked by a mountain lion and hit a deer. it was a pretty wild night.
i came home for a short amount of time this weekend, but honestly i am so glad i did. i met up with a few of my favorite people who i haven't seen in months. it is such a great feeling to know that i still have friends at home even though i live hundreds of miles away from them. it brings me to tears thinking about how much i love my friends from utah county.
i've been having a hard time at college. i love it, i really do. but im having a hard time fitting in, and finding people who accept me for the whole me. i feel like i'm always putting on a fake side of me to impress people, or to make friends. i'm tired of pretending to be someone im not. i want someone to accept me for the nascar loving, country singing, boot wearing, sarcastic person that i am.
last night i went on a date with one of my old friends. i'm glad i met him. sometimes we go a long time with out talking, but every time were together its like nothing ever changed. it was so good to see him and catch up. i can't wipe the smile off my face when im with him. something about those country boys...
OH GOODNESS! if you know me at all, you know i am absolutely head over heels in love with jason aldean. you would know that he has been one of my favorite artists for years. anyway, my boy is coming out with a new album on tuesday. i've already listened to it a few times, and its spectacular. i cant wait to go buy the album at midnight and hold the CD in my hands.
life is good, i am blessed, and i am happy. i am taking the struggles and challenges day by day, but i wouldn't change it for the world.
it was good to see her face on campus this week. always missing my best friend!
