Wednesday's Walk...

Being that I get to go to college everyday I have few times when I say "I miss college". But the past couple weeks I have really been feeling down and missing the "old me". I don't really miss college, I MISS my friends. This post will probably be very random but that pretty much describes my 4 years at Clarion.

There isn't even one memory I want to single out the whole time I was in college I loved it. I think college is the reason I have such a hard time being alone with Josh is at work all the time. I was always surrounded by my friends. In the res halls there were always people around and there were few weekends I didn't have a room mate or a cabana mate around to hang out with.

My senior year was by far the best year of my life. I turned 21 on the first day of school, drank more than I ever should have and made the best friends I could ask for. I am reading a book for work about the college experience and it makes me miss seeing the girls everyday. It amazes me how you can see,talk, and rely on some people so much for 4 years and then poof! they are outta your life.

To be quite honest I can't even pick one single memory to write about, especially about my last year of school because there are so many good ones. From playing crack the whip in the alley, to our last DZ meeting, to senior walk, to graduation. I carry those memories and my love for my friends/sisters every day. I would give anything to still live on Dietz place and be able to walk up the stairs or across the parking lot, NOT knock and just plop on the couch and see my best friends. I think it is something we all definitely took for granted.

So if any of my crazy friends are reading this...I miss you...more than you can even imagine.

  1. I take all internet classes so the thought of all the friendships I am missing out on makes me so sad.

    It sounds like you really do have some great memories of college!

  2. I really wish I had done college differently and lived on campus. I lived at home and commuted to college, so I missed out on all the fun!!

  3. Sounds like you had some great times in college. You must be a people person huh?

    I can't imagine having that much fun in school (ha!)- it wasn't for me. I fell in love and chose to marry and leave that place. I never really wanted to go anyway. Don't I sound pitiful! Oh well, we're all wired differently aren't we? :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi, I know we all have times of looking back and thinking of "the good ole' days,...but you are young sweetie and you have so much of your life ahead of you. (Spoken like the grandma that I am) (:>)

    I hope it will be a good one. One that is blessed by God and filled with friendship.

    It is good to see you making new blogger friends. I am finding that they have lots of good things to say! (:>)

    Life is an adventure!

  5. I am going to have my oldest son read your post! He goes back to college in the fall and isn't looking forward to it very much. I want it to be a good experience for him and make lasting friendships

  6. Oh how I wish I would have stuck it out and stayed in college. I listen with wistfulness when my friends tell me the stories of their college days.

    I've told all three of my children that they absolutely have to go to college. Not only for the education, but also for the life experience gained there!
