"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

I feel as though I have nothing to write. Sometimes that's the problem with being an English major. I read so many books and poems and short stories all written by fantastic authors. No really, I mean phenomenal - like ohmygoshhowdotheywritethatwellicouldneverdothatinmyentirelife - phenomenal. I know I'm a good writer, but I'm not that good. How do they do it? I just don't understand. Practice, I guess. Probably a genius brain, too. It's kind of the same feeling I get when I listen to symphonies. It's incredible to think that everything you're hearing (or reading) came out of someone's brain. They just thought it up.

It's fascinating to think about, no?

I felt like that when I transferred to BYU...there were all of these amazing people which was inspiring, and intimidating, but it didn't mean I was any less important.

That's exciting we have the same wedding day, go us! :)

I often think that when I'm reading. Some authors are so freaking talented. What am I thinking trying to be one of them? I'm so not worthy.

I think if you have a passion for it that makes you worthy.
