I love the way you've always been persistent because for the first time in my life, I feel like someone is fighting for me.
I love the way you text me in the morning because it makes me feel like I'm the first person you think about when you wake up (even if I'm not).
I love the way you pull my hair back and kiss my neck because it makes me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world.
I love the way you look into my eyes and tell me that you love me because in that moment there's no denying that the words you speak are true.
I love the way you tell me that you love me after an argument because it makes me realize that even though you're mad, I'm still important to you.
I love the way you wrap your arms around me when I'm crying because it makes me feel like I'm not alone in the things I'm going through.
I love the way you call me in the middle of the day because it reminds me that you're thinking about me just like I'm thinking about you.
I love the way you're honest with me even when I don't want to hear it because at the end of the day, the truth is better than any lie.
I love the way you tell me I'm beautiful because even though I know it, it's nice to hear it sometimes.
I love the way you hold my hand in the morning because it makes me feel like you love me even in your dreams.
I love the way you pull me close to cuddle because it makes me feel like it's only me and you in this crazy world. And in that moment, I feel like no one can hurt us or bring us down.
I love the way you tell me you want to spend the rest of your life with me because for the first time in my life, I actually believe that someone loves me.

133. Give a Senior Speech
I've been to a lot of events and banquets over the past four years of college, and a lot of them have a student give a senior speech. I always thought, "if that was me up there, what would I say?" After four years and tireless work, I was asked to do the senior keynote speech for the outgoing Senate banquet.
It was one of the hardest speeches I've ever written because I was trying to fit four years of memories into a five minute speech. But the second I stopped worrying about what to say, it all started coming together. During the banquet I didn't just give my speech, I spoke from the heart. I wanted to leave these outgoing Senators with something of value. Something they could take with them. Something that would inspire them.
And from what I've been told, I did just that.
It's not a traditional bucket list item, but giving a senior speech was something I really hoped I'd have the opportunity to do. I watched so many other people do it before me, and it was such an honor to be able to give a senior speech of my own. It truly was one of the highlights of my senior year.
