Friday Musings

Friday is finally here. Let’s take a look back at my past week and what’s caught my eye in the entertainment world. Wednesday was the first Florida Public Relations Association Tallahassee Student Chapter meeting of the year! If it weren’t for this group, two years ago, I never would’ve met some of my closest friends […]

Prince Charming

Early on in college my friend diagnosed me with fairy tale syndrome. Sure she was right. I had high expectations and believed when a guy came along, it’d be a great story. He might be in one of my classes and one of us asked the other out on an actual date. It’d be an intimate feeling restaurant […]

Party of One

Welcome to junior year – party of one! If I’ve learned anything these last two years, it’s that I’m on a journey and I’m alone in it. Not in a depressing way but as a warrior trying to find his way. Friendships have come and gone and are in the hospital. Work skyrocketed in constantly […]

Crushes Past Part Two – Stood Up, Hook Up and Vulnerable

Part Two picks up from my post on freshman year crushes. You can read it here: Crushes Past Part One ———- Sophomore year began feeling like being so close to the peak of this college mountain. I didn’t expect all the old faces turning into crushes. I really expected it to be a year with […]

Crushes Past Part One – Hugs, Friends and WHAT?

In the last two years, there is nothing like that pause I’ve experienced between asking a guy out and their answer. But what makes that pause horrible is when as soon as the words come out of my mouth or that text has been sent, I can feel the rejection coming like a train emerging […]

“It’s Just Chicken”

In the Tallahassee, and more specifically Florida State University area, the Chik-fil-a debate has been ongoing for the last year with protest of allowing this establishment on campus. While I do think this is a complicated matter, what boils my blood is hearing from people “It’s just chicken” or “It’s delicious so what does it matter.” […]

This Was a Drive-By

Maybe I set myself up for an emotional failure. When rejected I want to forget it happened. A drive-by of emotions that I want to pretend never happened. But eventually, down the line, the emotions reappear. Not the hopeful ones but the hurt ones. The ones not wanting to accept feeling rejected. That wonder why […]

My Lips Were Shaking

A year ago I was definitely in my end of freshman year mentality. I didn’t see myself as cute. I didn’t understand the public relations world well and I was lost in certain ways. I didn’t even make it to the Live with Kelly semi-finalist level and it hurt. No matter how farfetched something is, […]

Three Doors

I feel like I was standing in a room representing my future. There were three doors each representing progress with someone. Guys, or well men for all intents and purposes, stand behind them all. Behind the first was the ever so popular one from my post “He Has a Crush on You.” I could pull open […]

Live with Kelly and Jarryd

“This familiar feeling radiates throughout my body but I feel it most in my core.  It’s desire! Forget my summer shows, fixation on the future and fanciful crushes, this sensation matters most. Determination and vision seem to be key in this moment.” My thoughts earlier this week ———————————————————————- Too often we think to ourselves, at […]
