Love Don't Know What Distance Is...

Let me first start by saying that I have no issue with long-distance. As long as the effort is put into it, I feel like it shouldn't be a problem. But there's a slight problem...

I am constantly finding myself in long-distance relationships. And it's not on purpose at all. It just happens

I would love to actually find a person for me that I don't have to travel a long distance in order to see them. But, if I meet someone and feel that it's right, I'm not going to fight it. I feel that I at least owe it to myself to try. Because trying never hurt anyone at all. You try it out; if it doesn't work then you move on with your life. 

Our communication devices are so advanced now that you really have no excuse at all to maintain a relationship if you want it. There's phone calls, Skype, FaceTime, texting, etc. Every little bit helps. 

And I'm not saying distance isn't hard, because it is. I always say that I will never be in another long distance relationship, but I'll end up finding myself in another one. Again, not on purpose. Maybe it's a part of my character in the fact that I'm independent and don't need to be around someone 24/7. That also goes along the lines of being clingy but that's a whole different issue in and of itself. 

This is just something I have always felt strongly about. If you're putting in effort; given that be a relationship, a job, school, or your friendships, then that means more than anything. Effort is the most important thing, even when distance isn't an issue.

Have to end it on some humor :)

I've Fallen in Love With the South

If I thought I loved the South before, man was I sure wrong. This past weekend has pretty much solidified that I will be in fact moving to somewhere in the South after college. 

Now what happened this weekend you may ask? I went to Ozark, Arkansas for the first annual Thunder on the Mountain. This is a country music festival that is basically in comparison to Country Thunder but with a few headliners and more-so smaller country bands that are big in their own way. In shortened terms:  I will be returning. It was that amazing. Sure it included camping, drinking and not being able to shower for 3ish days (gross). But I also met some of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I can't even put into words of everything that happened, so I'm just going to let the pictures do the talking.

Set line-up included: Big & Rich, JJ Lawhorn, Easton Corbin, Montgomery Gentry, Luke Bryan, Randy Houser, Randy Rogers Band, Stoney LaRue, Aaron Watson, Justin Moore, Reckless Kelly, Brandon Jenkins, Josh Abbott Band and so, so much more. 

Needless to say, I have a lot of music to be adding to my iPod.

I recommend for everyone to check it out next year. I've never even been to Country Thunder; but I just have a feeling that this is extremely better. Now all I have to do is find out which friends would want to join me! Shouldn't be too hard right?
