I'm Rachel. Recent Truman State history grad, now diving headfirst into my Masters of Arts in Education. Gonna work in a museum and get students interested in cool stuff. Me: Food, leggings, boots, BBN, Shameless, reading, laughing, Doctor Who, Ed Sheeran and other gingers, Sherlock, Game of Thrones, etc. WWI, the American West, Wikipedia, ISAO, Twitter, my bed, X-men, drunken shenanigans, Tau Lambda Sigma, Band of Brothers, too many tv shows, scarves, Russian Literature, religion, shoes, discovering.

  • "I might be too young to settle down and marry, but I’m definitely too old to be playing anymore games. I’m too old to just be talking to someone, too old to not know what’s really going on, and too old to be entertaing somebody with no intention of making it work. At this age, I’m only interested in consistency, stability, respect and loyalty. And I want to hear someone tell me that they love me and know they Goddamn mean it."

    1. If he doesn’t answer, don’t keep sending texts. If he wanted to talk to you, he would’ve responded.

    2. People will make time for you when they care about you. If he says he’s too busy or constantly cancels his plans, he doesn’t care. People fight for you when they care.

    3. Don’t let him touch you on the first date. If he tries, he’s not there for the same reasons you are.

    4. You can tell a lot about a person by their favorite book.

    5. If he can stomach more than ten straight shots without feeling a thing, he drinks too much.

    6. Ask the uncomfortable things. When was the last time he was so high he couldn’t speak? What does he regret the most? Does he drink to remember or to forget?

    7. Don’t send pictures unless you want to. If he has to talk you into it, don’t do it. If you hesitate, don’t do it. If you do take a picture, don’t include your face. Keep yourself safe.

    8. If you can’t laugh when you’re having sex with him, maybe you aren’t sleeping with the right person. Sex isn’t about tricks and tips and routines.

    9. If he hurts you, cut him out. He’s gone, he isn’t coming back, and you don’t need to prolong the pain.

    10. Don’t be afraid to open up again. I promise not everyone will love you with a knife behind their back.
