I'm Erin Estherlyn.

My heart is in the mountains, but my feet have planted me in a tiny, midwest town. I aspire to be a traveling musician of some sort, and hope to live a life that inspires.

I am a worship major with a minor in literature. Follower of Christ. Artist.

Tea enthusiast. Jack Kerouac enthusiast. Lover of life.

  • This boy I had a major crush on in middle school (who never gave me the time of day) now basically wants to hook up, and I don’t know whether to laugh or be proud of myself for growing out of my awkward stage and getting attractive.

    I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, Kiss me harder, and You’re a good person, and, You brighten my day. I live my life as straight-forward as possible.
    Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

    Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.

    But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.

    And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

    We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.

    We never know when the bus is coming.

  • "I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain."

  • I’ve officially been dubbed as the “cute little artsy freshmen” that the upperclassmen art majors adore and that makes me really happy.
