“That’s the one thing Auburn and Auburn people have always instinctively known and should never forget.  We don’t need Matt Hayes or Mel Kiper or Craig James or Rece Davis or ESPN or FoxSports or Brent Musberger or Kirk Herbstriet to validate us.

We are Auburn. That’s all that matters, not what somebody on the outside thinks or doesn’t think.

We are not defined or limited by the perceptions of others.  We don’t need a T-shirt from Wal Mart boasting about things that never were to boost our ego.  We don’t use our battle cry as a taunt to prop up our self-esteem. Our sense of worth isn’t determined by the number of stickers and flags we can put on our car.

We are who we are. We are what we are. We do what we do. And we’re damn proud of it.”

- The Never to Yield Foundation


The more I think about the trees and how it’ll be a LONG time before I can roll Toomer’s again, the more I get depressed.

Hair, wrists, hands?

Hair: What hair color looks best on you and what’s your natural color?

I’m a strong believer in the thought that every hair colour is a rad colour. I think I look very good with red-ish hair, but I loved my soft purple cotton candy hair a lot. My next project shall be turquoise. I don’t even know my natural colour anymore. I started out as bright blond, but now I’m kinda like auburn and I’m not sure why?

Wrists: Have you ever broken a bone?

Gladly I haven’t and I have an awful fear about breaking bones. I popped out my knee cap a couple of times though, quite ugly as well.

Hands: Are you an artist/writer?

I am a writer, but I don’t write nearly as much as I want to these days. There were times when I wrote a fic a week, and then some poems and original stories and all that jazz. Now it takes me months to finish a single one shot. I mean, I’ve gotten better at writing, so of course it takes longer now, and I’ve become more critical of myself, but I’m also not as filled with inspiration as I used to be.

I’m confident it will come back though, my inspiration. Because even if I don’t write for months, I’m still a writer. I always am.

Thanks for the questions dear!

when I first came to Auburn, I would have never guessed that I would end up sitting on a porch in rocking chairs, laughing too loud and singing along to country music until two in the morning, but that’s exactly where I found myself tonight. if you asked me a year ago if I thought I’d be single, at Auburn, and happy, I would have laughed in your face. but here I am, and I’m loving it. I even wish I had more time to soak it all in. they’re so right when they say that happiness is found in small moments. I didn’t flip any switch on my life that made me happy again. all I did was make my well-being a priority over my missing him, and give myself more opportunities to experience God’s love and the love of other people. there’s only one week left of my freshman year of college, and I can’t believe the work that God has done in my life over this year. His fingerprints are all over the circumstances I find myself in. I am amazed at how far I’ve come and the happy that I have found and the path that God has led me down. I’m so excited to see what He’s gonna do next.

Can I have a matchup? I'm a straight girl with auburn hair and blue eyes. I can come off as really stubborn sometimes, but I'm really nice when you get to know me. I focus on my studies but also art (I play multiple instruments), and I stand up for what I believe in. I want to travel the world one day, and maybe settle down as a foreign language teacher somewhere. I'm big in supporting LGBTQ+ even though I'm straight (I have two fathers). I also LOVE history, of all kinds and of all places.

I ship you with:

When first meeting you, he would be very relieved and grateful that you’re an LGBTQ+ supporter. He can’t stand homophobes, partly because he believes in every type of love, and partly because (I think) he’s pansexual. He’s not bothered by stubbornness, he can ignore it and be quite oblivious to it sometimes. He loves art and music, and despite his flirtatious demeanor, is very intelligent. He would certainly love to travel the world with you, it’s an experience full of culture and romance. If you didn’t already speak French, he would love to teach you and spend hours telling you about his country’s rich history and culture.

Other possibilities:
1pItaly, 1pAmerica, 2pChina

Hello, I would love a TFA era ship! I am Partially Deaf, Straight, 4'11", I have auburn hair and grey blue eyes. I am a Gryffindor through and through! I love to read and cook. I LOVE Anthropology. Since I am an Oral Deaf I believe in fighting for representation and I am an extremely passionate and caring person when it comes to the people I love. I am the very definition of a people pleaser. I am also a teacher!

Poe Dameron!

You sound like you’d fit in well with The Resistance, which is where you’d meet the dashing Mr. Poe Dameron!
I think Poe would easily become enamoured with you. And I feel like you two would also have a lot in common. I think Poe would also be a Gryffindor and would love to cook. You could spend nights bonding together over good food.
If you use sign language, I think he’d jump at the chance to learn that from you. You two would spend hours together trying to teach him how to sign, and once he’s got the hang of it he’d try his hardest to flirt with you that way.
I think he’d just love being near you in generally, and spend most of his down time with you.
He’d love you very much.
(Plus another upside to being with Poe is you get to be BB8’s new Mummy and omfg who wouldn’t want to be bby8’s mother?)

can I have an spn guy ship too?! I'm 5'5, Auburn hair, big blue eyes, kinda chubby. I'm socially awkward but very adventurous. My name is Chelsy. I tend to stand up for what I believe in. but I'm also clumsy and accident prone lol...

I AM Auburn

I am Auburn.

I am the 30-year old couple coming back to campus for the first time with both little ones in tow. One wears her first blue and orange cheerleader outfit; the other wears #34 even though he is too young to understand why.

I am the 50-year old man who hoped no one saw tears in his eyes when the eagle circled the field. I was too choked even to say ‘War Eagle’. For a moment, I felt foolish and then I didn’t care. God, I love this place.

I am the 60 year old woman meeting her freshman granddaughter who is now the 3rd generation of AU students in our family. Despite my age, I’d strap it on Saturday and hit someone if it weren’t for my gender and this blasted arthritis.

I am Auburn and I have always believed I was different. You can see it when you look up into the stands. My orange is not the same as Tennessee’s and my blue is not that of Florida. But the differences go much deeper than my colors. Read my creed. What other school has one? I genuinely believe in these things. To be a real Auburn man or woman speaks of character, not of geography. All are welcome to walk though my gates, not just the wealthy or the elite.

anonymous asked:

brown, auburn, sienna (u are a very cute person <3)

Brown. How many hair colors have you had?
Omg so many hahah I used to dye only the tips of my hair when I was in HS. I had pink, blue, magenta, and purple. And then I had light brown, burgundy, almost jet black, mahogany, white, pink, and purplish/silver, and I guess blonde too.

Auburn. Favorite band/singer?
Right now, I think my favorite band is Cold War Kids.

Sienna. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Not really, not for me at least. But I think if someone says they’ve experienced it, then I believe it. I just don’t think it could happen to me.

And thank you!! :)
