ramble on, maestro

I just got this in my inbox. I took a picture so I could save it forever. Here was my response.
Wow. This is so unexpected. I know I should say “you’re welcome” but I don’t think you realize how much it means that you took the time out of your day to message me. I never realized how much I impacted both of your lives. It’s a very rewarding feeling and I’m in shock. I never forgot about her or that post; I was actually thinking about it the other day. I saw her post and I realized she needed help and comfort so I reblogged it and sent loads of messages pleading with her not to do it and asking others to do the same. I know we stopped her but I never thought of it as saving her. It just seemed like the right thing to do.
Now it is my turn to thank you. No one has ever made me feel so good and proud of myself as you have. In a mere paragraph, you have made me feel better about myself than anyone else has in a long time. I am so glad I was able to help, even though I didn’t realize the extent until now. I’m glad Ava has someone like you in her life - someone who is obviously enamored about her and cares for her as deeply as you. She is a lucky girl. I wish you two the best.

I'm bored so go ahead, ask me anything.

Do it. Do it. DO IT. :)

I was unsure too. My sister goes to Georgia Tech so for the longest  time I didn’t like UGA just for that reason. I didn’t necessarily hate  the South but I sure as hell didn’t love it either. I saw college as my  opportunity to broaden my horizons and get out of there. UGA was the  only place I applied to in Georgia and it was only to appease my  parents. I applied to universities all over the country - Syracuse, NYU,  Emerson, FSU, USC, Texas, Pepperdine, Indiana, BU and Elon. I got in  everywhere but USC.
I was really interested in studying  journalism in college - broadcasting to be specific - and everyone I  knew kept telling me about how awesome UGA’s program was. I always  rolled my eyes because I thought they were only saying that because my  mom told them too. I visited some of those universities and loved some  (Elon has a gorgeous campus, Emerson and NYU are fantastic schools but  don’t have a very strong communications program) and hated some  (Syracuse is so cold and gray - it’s just depressing).
And I got  into UGA and decided I should probably visit there just to appease my  parents so they don’t think I wasn’t just throwing that option out of  the window because it was their choice for me (I kind of was) and so I  went to this session for “undecided Dawgs” where we had a tour led by  students, informational session with the school of our choice (Grady)  and were able to talk to some students from the school. And as much as I  hated to admit it, I kind of loved it. The campus is gorgeous. There is  so much green and the buildings look so nice, clean and elegant. It’s  not mismatched like Syracuse. There are so many different types of  people here I had no worries about fitting in.
Athens is such a great college town too - although you probably  already know that. And then I found out that UGA had one of the best  journalism schools in the country - only behind Northwestern and  Columbia. That is what really sold me.
My biggest concern was  that I would be with the same people I was with in high school and I  really didn’t want that. I didn’t have good experiences with some of  them so I was afraid that college would just be another version of high  school but then everyone assured me that after first semester, I  wouldn’t see them unless I went out of my way too. And it’s true. I  really haven’t seen many of them. I have a few in my sorority and a  class with maybe two of them but besides that, nothing.
UGA is  such a great school and I am so glad I went there. I have no idea if  this was what you were expecting in a response, I really doubt it - I  wasn’t even expecting to write such a long response, but once I started  writing, I just couldn’t stop. I really love UGA and wanted to share my  story with you.
In the end, choosing where you go to college should be your decision.  Talk to people and ask them questions about the school but don’t let  their stories and opinions make or break the school. At the end of the  day, it should be your heart that you listen to (sounds so cheesy but  it’s true).  This where you are going to be for at least the next four  years - it is your experience, not anyone else’s. So make it count. As long as you do that, it should be the best four years of your life.

Ask me anything!

My ask box is empty and I’m staying in tonight to take a breather and it feels like my ask box is filled with cobwebs. Ask me anything you like - funny, interesting, creative, curious, inquisitive, challenging, anything your heart desires. :)

TMI Tuesday is coming early this week.

I was supposed to go out tonight, but since there is a freaking hurricane going on outside my house, those plans have been scrapped.

So ask me anything! I’ll answer anything that tickles your fancy. Make my boring day interesting!

Cure my boredom! :)

It’s TMI Tuesday, I’ll answer anything.

I made my Tumblr milestone last night!

Over 400 followers. Wow. Thank you all so much! I really and honestly do appreciate every single one of you.

I told you all I would do something special if I hit this milestone and I decided I will post a video of myself. Many of you may know my blog, but might not know me so I’ll be answering some questions I get asked a lot and tell you all a bit about me.

My ask box is always open so if there is anything you want to ask me, tell me, suggest to me or even ask me for advice, it is always there and anon is always on. http://rambleonmaestro.tumblr.com/ask

 I’ve had this blog for a while, but I actually just started seriously blogging in January. It really warms my heart to see how many of you have welcomed me with open arms. It’s not about quantity, but quality. :)

So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Anon, here are your answers:

Lots of pictures, interesting people, funny, or all of the above. I’m not picky. Give me some suggestions! Don’t be shy. :)
