“You don’t arrive at Virginia Tech accidentally. You have to work to get there, journeying into the Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s lovely, picturesque, and seems very far away from the dangers of the outside world. There is a collective strength of spirit there that feels quite different from other campuses we visit. It’s a big school … but it feels like a tight community. That spirit seems to endure long after students leave Blacksburg—once a Hokie, always a Hokie.”—Chris Fowler, ESPN College Gameday Host (via good-gollymissmolly)
To be honest, I am not convinced that I have actually truly had my first love. I have been infatuated, in lust, and there has been that one boy who I love-to-hate-and-hate-to-love (I’m sure we all have one of “those” boys, right?). I have had one serious relationship that was great for 90% of the time, but ended with heartbreak right before college started. Since then, I have been happily single and am just waiting for the right guy to come along :)
Day 3: My parents.
Not to brag, but I seriously have the most wonderful parents in the entire world. They would do absolutely anything for my sisters and I, and I hope to one day be as good of a role model as they are to me. My mother, Susan, is the most amazing person I have ever met. She is selfless, hospitable, and is the most popular woman in Wal-Mart (I’m from a small town - Wal-Mart is a social gathering POI). My dad is responsible, motivating, and the most loyal person I have ever met. Together, they are super parents and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without them :)
So because I have 400 of you LOVELY ladies and gentlemen, I have decided to host a little giveaway. I purchased an awesome hot pink JPK bag. Look it up if you don’t know what that is. It is bucket style, roomy, paisley print on the inside, lots of pockets and would be ADORABLE if it were…
Hi! I’m Mary! I am almost always called by my full name, Mary P., or Mare Bear, Mary Mac, or MP. I’m currently a senior at VT, in complete denial of the g-word coming up, and am trying to live life as much as possible between now and then :) I have an amazing family, enjoy my friends company to no end, and believe that all is fair in love and war.
If you want to know anything else, please don’t hesitate to ask! :)
