My roommate's gone, so this happened

I made a vlog for you all. Because I love you guys. I didn't even watch it after I recorded it because I knew I would delete it, so this is me, in my un-edited state.

How have you lovelies been? What have you been loving lately?

My people

College has been good so far. The people here are friendly and kind, but it's still not the same as being around people who know me. People who know how I act when I am stressed, what makes me happy, what my favorite foods are. People who just get me.

I know that the relationships I am building right now will blossom into deeper relationships after a time, but right now, I miss my people.

And that's okay

Soft wool yarn
Video chats
Colorful pens
Full pages in my planner
Watching Merlin
New friends
Writing letters
Granola bars

autumn is my favorite

Autumn is my favorite. 

I could list all the reasons, but you could find those anywhere on Pinterest and Facebook. 
Sometimes I wish that no one else loved fall as much as I do so that nothing I say about it sounds cliche, but then I realize that there's a reason everyone loves fall. It's okay to enjoy something that others enjoy just as much if not more than I do. There's a reason those things are loved, things like tea, The Book Thief, vintage clothing, and teal. You don't have to like those things, but if you do, own it. Don't stay away from something you enjoy just because everyone else likes it. Swimming against the stream is important and it has it's place, but sometimes I need to remember to just love what I love and nevermind if everyone else loves it, too.

Autumn is my favorite.
