Sam Hunt just gets it. 

I don’t wanna steal your freedom.

I don’t wanna change your mind. 

I don’t have to make you love me.

I just wanna take your time.

I don’t wanna blow your phone up. 

I just wanna blow your mind.

I don’t have to take your heart. 

I just wanna take your time.

I don’t wanna steal your freedom
I don’t wanna change your mind
I don’t have to make you love me
I just wanna take your time


I don’t wanna blow your phone up
I just wanna blow your mind
I don’t have to take your heart
I just wanna take your time

I walked to Montevallo.’
‘Forty miles?!’
'Forty-two,’ he corrected me. 'Well. Forty-two there. Forty-two back. Eight-two miles. No. Eight-four. Yes. Eighty-four miles in forty-five hours.’
'What the hell’s in Montevallo?’ I asked.
'Not much. I just walked til I got too cold, and then I turned around.’

For my publication design final we had to design a magazine about either Montevallo, where my university is located, or Birmingham. My partner and I decided to do Montevallo and we were the only ones. As I went around taking pictures of places I was reminded of the beauty of simple things.

As my teacher was flipping through our mock up she told me that I made Montevallo look “pretty” and all I could think was it wasn’t me, its already beautiful on its own.

Montevallo Gothic:

You are looking for a parking place. You are always looking for a parking place. You have always been looking for a parking place. You realize suddenly that you do not own a car. 

There is always construction going on. You do not know what they are building. You are afraid to ask.

They say that Condie runs up and down the halls of Main over breaks, when no one is the dorms. You wonder, but never ask, who is running up and down the halls when you are there. 

You walked past King House at night once. Only once.

You avoid the shambling creatures who cross your path in the early months of the year. Others call them zombies. You call them the College Night Cabinet and Cast

The bricks rise up to trip you. The bricks know. They always know. 

You live in New Res because you think you will be safe from the ghosts. You do not realize until it is too late that it only makes it that much easier to hear your own.
