He listens. He knows how to remain silent and let things soak in, without feeling like he needs to be the one running the conversation. He hears people, he hears you, instead of believing that he should be the one talking, the one in charge.
When you’re talking to him, he’s not zoning off and planning what he’s going to say next. He’s listening to you, processing every word you’re saying, because he wants to be someone you can trust, someone you can count on to hear you and understand you and be the sounding board that you need.
He’s contemplative. He’s aware, not only aware of himself but aware of the things going on around him and the things going on thousands of miles away. He refuses to be ignorant. He refuses to be comfortable in a safe, easy life. He wants to understand that the…

All week your skin has been looking flawless and this morning you woke up feeling great. You may even be werrrrkin’ it to some Yonce and BOOM you notice a pimple (and what seems to feel like the world’s largest zit––but probably isn’t)! After a few moments of panic the haunting question occurs…. Can I cover this up or will it make my skin worse? Have no fear, there are a lot of products out there that will cover up blemishes without creating more of a breakout.
The first thing you’ll want to do is to cover up the redness of the blemish. Most concealers have a thick creamy consistency which isn’t the best to put onto an already irritated area. Luckily for you, there are concealers out there formulated with acne treatment! These are great because they aren’t as heavy on the skin and…

1. You play with me at night before going to sleep. You can’t get caught fiddling with me at work. You only let a select few people touch me. What am I?
2. What’s a four-letter word that ends in “k” and means the same as intercourse?
3. I start with a “v” and every woman has one. She can even use me to get what she wants. What am I?
4. I come in a lot of different sizes. Sometimes, I drip a little. If you blow me, it feels really good. What am I?
5. What’s in a man’s pants that you won’t find in a girl’s dress?
6. You stick your poles inside me. You tie me down to get me up. I get wet before you do. What am I?
7. What’s long and…

Since, Will Muschamp was fired from Florida, there have been many speculations about who will take his place. Every time a coach leaves or gets fired from a school, speculations start happening. And they almost ALWAYS involve coaches and/or coordinators from other colleges. When it all comes down to it, it’s basically which college will pay the most money for the coach that they want?
The candidates that have been mentioned are as follows:
- Dan Mullen, Mississippi State’s head coach
- Steve Spurrier, South Carolina’s head coach
Now, why would these two coaches be good candidates for this position?
Let’s start with Dan Mullen.
He was offensive coordinator for the Gators under Urban Meyer when they went to the national championship with Tim Tebow.
Mississippi State has been playing very well this season. Going into almost every game, they have been favored to win. Even with their loss against Alabama, they were the underdogs and many of the SEC fans were rooting for them just because they are tired of Alabama winning all the time. If Alabama were to lose to Auburn (which I hope we don’t), then Mississippi State would have the SEC West won.
In his six years of coaching, he has gone to 4 bowls. Out of those 4 bowls, he won 3 of them.
He has been with a single team, Mississippi State, all six years. Meaning, he knows what it takes for you to be successful in the SEC. The SEC is one of the most competitive conferences and every year, one team is so good that it makes it to the National Championship against either another SEC team or someone from another conference. It has been awhile (2005) since an SEC hasn’t made it to the National Championship and Mullen knows that. I believe that he knows what makes a great team in the SEC especially now since Mississippi State has became better in the last few years.
He has won 45 games in his career and lost 29 games.
Next, Steve Spurrier.
In his twenty-five years of coaching, he has made it to twenty bowl games.
He was the Coach for Duke for three years, Florida for twelve, and South Carolina for the last ten years.
As the head coach of Florida, he went to eleven bowl games and won six of them.
He has won the ACC Coach of the year twice and the SEC Coach of the year five times.
He has won 224 games in his career and lost 84.
When he was coaching at Florida, he led them to a National title in 1996 and the quarterback won the Heisman.
He has said that he isn’t happy with South Carolina’s defense.
His win-lose record for each college he has coached at has been as follows:
- Duke – W (20) L (13)
- Florida – W (122) L (27)
- South Carolina – W (82) L (44)
He turns 70 years old on April 20. Since, he was a great coach at Florida and the fact that he is from Florida, and retiring might be in his future.. Florida would be a great final place to coach.
So, what do you think? Could it be Steve Spurrier or Dan Mullen? Or is it someone I haven’t mentioned? Let me know in the comments.
I just bought a used car (new to me). I am sooo excited!
With this car, I really want to keep up with all the car maintenance I am supposed to and I want to keep it clean. So, I am trying to figure out what all I need to keep up.
So far, I have this list: Oil change (Duh!), Rotation of Tires (Duh!), Water Filter, Windshield Wipers, Tire pressure check (including spare), air filters, transmission fluid, air coolant, and windshield wiper fluid. I want to routinely check as much as I can. I want to take care of this car! Any ideas on other things for me to check?
I recently read an article that mentioned how it was important to enjoy life being single and in my 20s. Since Adam and I aren’t getting back together right now and I am 21, I am planning on enjoying this. I’m at the beach right now, so this week, I am planning on going Parasailing and then seeing what else I can do. When I get back home, I plan on going to the tanning bed to get a tan.. (I burn easily) And I wanna cut my hair a little bit and darken it but Mom is being stubborn about the hair.. But I plan on doing stuff that I can’t really do with a boyfriend. I want to enjoy this. Go on dates. Not stick with just one guy. I wanna better me. I wanna do a whole bunch of Stuff that is on my bucket list. Yes, I have a bucket list. (My family actually laughed when they found that out.) I wanna work out and get in shape. I wanna stay in shape. I wanna expand the things I try.
So far, since I’ve been single, I have done or want to do: (this will be a running and updated list.)
Cut and Color hair
Get in Shape
I need to realize this! It’s something hard to understand and remember when things go wrong and not the way you want them to.
You deserve better than someone who is afraid to commit to you. It may seem like enough for now. You’re just taking things slow. Oh, how I know those little phrases of “one day” and “we just need time.”
You believe them.
And I’ve believed them.
But you’re not a plan B kind of girl.
You need to know that you’re not the invisible one standing in the back who gets chosen last.
You’re the girl who the team captain will be frantically hoping doesn’t get picked by someone else before he gets a turn. You’re a first-pick kind of girl. And no one worth having sits back and lets those girls wait around.
‘Cause every good man knows that the good ones get gone fast.
He should be jumping out of his skin in anticipation to call out your name and say “I pick you.”

I have been in love before. But there have been a couple problems with my love. One, the guy I have been in love with, our on and off relationships have lasted a max of 2 months. My longest relationship is 2 months and 13 days and that was in 7th grade.. The closest I’ve came to that is 2 months and 10 days with the guy I am referring to. Second, I have never had a good love. Not one that made me want to take a ton of pictures of us and post them on all social networks. The ex I am referring to, I wanted to do all that but we were long distance and he didn’t love me enough (I assume) to come down here and see me.
So, I have decided that I am giving up. I am giving God complete control over my love life. When I saw a cute guy, I used to be very bold and go up to him and ask for his number or add him on Facebook. I used to be the chaser. But now, I am going to let the guys come to me. Have them chase me. I want a guy to chase me soo bad. I want a guy to fight for me. I want a guy to like me for me and not want just sex from me. There have 3 guys that I have had really great dates with (well only 2 I have had dates with) and the other one, we just snap chatted and texted a lot and all 3 of them made me happy. All 3 made me feel special and like they wanted me. One of them even did a kiss that he grabbed my face and pulled it to him (like the one in the middle of the collage–my favorite pic and the one thing I love when a guy does and you can tell he really wants to kiss her) but 1 of them said he only wanted a hookup. The other 2 have persisted in asking for sex. As I told my guy friend, I suspect I am unlovable and just fuckable (excuse my language but it makes sense with that word). He told me to hush and to not talk like that. But it’s true…
Collage Information: I stole these pics from Instagram because this is the type of love I want. A guy that will take cute kissy photos with me to post. A guy that looks like he loves me, which is what these guys look like. My favorite photo is the center of the collage because it’s the one thing I have always wanted in a relationship. <<Of course the guy who does it to me, doesn’t want me for anything but sex..
1. You seek their company (spend time with them)
2. You talk for hours (talking and listening)
3. You pray for them
4. You think about them
5. You become best friends
6. You discuss issues of life
7. You have a servant’s heart about them
**You will love the ones you seek out.**
When what you do becomes a habit or duty, the love wanes.
Stated above is a list that was made in my small group at Church.
I realized that I do love people (friends) but I don’t do all that is required for loving someone. I also realized that the ex that I am still in love with, I remember him mentioning how talking to me became a habit and maybe that’s why he quit loving me. We would talk for hours but we didn’t spend any time together, physically. I claimed he was my best friend but I wasn’t his towards the end. I’m slacking in my duties to my friends that I love.
But this works with any relationship that you have: parents, friends, siblings, boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, grandparents, mentor, etc.
Do you feel as if this list is correct? Would you add anything else to it? Comment below on your thoughts.
