I'm a 20 year old University of Cincinnati student. I love everything Cincinnati, especially the Reds. Jesus is my passion. My heart has a special obsession with Northern Ireland and bodies of water. I'm on a most incredible journey and I'd love to have you along.

 

Every time I go visit, I wonder if it’s the last. Friends will graduate and life will get busy and there will be no reason to go back. The people I once spent every day with I only see once or twice a year now. Some of them a definite friends for life, others only for a season. I miss them. But going back is hard. And coming home is harder.

Always be honored when someone lets you in on their craziness.

When they’re at their most slobbery, vulnerable, neurotic, exposed rock bottom: please don’t belittle them.  Embrace.  Be gracious.  Your advice is probably good, but not as good as being there to catch them.

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
