I can trace my ancestry to the Mayflower, specifically to a passenger named John Howland. Turns out, George H.W. and Barbara Bush are also descendents of John Howland. So, basically, me and ol’ Dubya are cousins.
If you don't
listen to Ben Rector yet, you should probably start…now. “The Beat” - Ben Rector, playcount since yesterday = 15. Not sorry.

Taking a vacation
from social media. Peace out Facebook, Tumblr, & Twitter, see you in a week.
...more from Dad.
Mom and I hugging each other, saying goodnight… Dad: Oh so I see you are both part of the Mutual Admiration Society. Can I get in on that?
Conversation with Dad
about my major, my career plans, where I want to live post-graduation, etc… Dad: So what if you finish up with your education major, and get an MRS degree along the way…with a Christian guy that loves to fish and wants to live in Stuart. What would you do? Me: Um, I can’t really think of a better situation.

What am I doing
on a Friday night in my hometown? Sitting on my couch, downloading music. Pretty much par for the course. But I still love you, Martin County.

To chop off 10 inches of hair,

Here is how you know you are obsessed with learning about different dialects: When you meet someone new, it can be hard to concentrate on what they are saying because you are way more interested in how they are saying it. You plan on learning the phonetic alphabet over summer break. You see a map like this, and would thoroughly enjoy spending the next two hours trying to figure it out. ...
Typical family dinner:
Ate some mahi-mahi that my brother caught. The same brother tried to tell us that Gatorade was originally sweat from the UF football players gloves mixed with sugar. Nasty and thankfully, false. Dad warned my other brother (that will be a freshman at FSU next year!!) to not turn into the guy that Corey Smith talks about in the song 21. Dad referred to Newark, New Jersey as the “armpit...
keshquichelove: My curfew was lightning bugs. Mom didn’t call my cell, she yelled my name. I played outside with friends, not online. If I didn’t eat what my mom cooked, then I didn’t eat. Sanitizer didn’t exist, but you COULD get your mouth washed out with soap. I rode a bike without a helmet, getting dirty was ok, and neighbors cared as much as your parents did. Re-blog if you drank water from...
I ain’t got a dime, but what I got is mine. I ain’t rich, but Lord, I’m free. - George Strait, Amarillo by Morning If this isn’t my life, I don’t know what is.
I was gonna go to sleep,
until I found this. http://dialectblog.com/ Something not many people know about me: I am obsessed with American regional dialects and vocabulary. Obsessed. I would rather read a blog like this than any kind of fashion magazine, any day of the week. #nerdalert

As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things. - Ecclesiastes 11:5
It annoys me somethin’ terrible when people mess around with their relationship status on Facebook. I creep (probably too much) and I hold the relationship status to the upmost importance. So I have decided that if you are older than 14, you should not: list yourself as “in a relationship” with your best friend. Did you make it FBO that you are gay, or did I somehow miss that...
Tweetin' it up.
@acbowers13 I want to follow you all! What’s your Twitter name?
rereading Gone With the Wind. I read it during the summer before my freshman year of college, and it took me, a speed reader, more than a month. It’s 1,024 pages, with less than a centimeter margins, and Bible sized font. Worth it? Yes. Do I have a whole list of other books I want to read? Yes. But does it get better than Gone With the Wind? No. The jury is in.
