I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before how much I enjoyed my whole college experience. My sophomore and junior years, I lived in a small four-plex...two apartments of guys, two of girls, 16 kids total. I think I had a much better time here than I could have at a huge complex. It was perfect for me. The whole group of us were good friends (and sometimes more than friends...this is where Spencer and I met...he lived up stairs from me). If you didn't have something going on during the weekend, you knew you had plans with the Crestview kids. In fact, most of the time you didn't even want other plans because you could bet the spontaneous plans of this group would most likely be more fun than anything else you could do in Logan, Utah that night.
One spring, Spencer's roommate, Mikey (I can't for the life of me remember his last name) bought a kiddie pool on the first warm day of the year and when I walked home from class, there was Mikey sun bathing in his kiddie pool on the upstairs balcony. He had filled it up with pitchers of water since we had no hose. The kiddie pool made it's appearance occasionally throughout the spring and summer and then stored in the shed and forgotten about for quite some time.
One winter weekend the following year, those of us still around were debating what to do with our Friday night when we remembered Mikey's pool. We trekked that thing all the way up Old Main hill on campus...which is quite a flight of icy stairs in the winter. I'm pretty sure we stuffed at least eight people inside that pool and went flying down the long steep hill. After a few trips down, the pool had finally seen it's last day.
I had so many great adventures in college that I don't have pictures of. First of all, it was before I had a digital camera and taking pictures meant paying to get them developed...not much of an option for a poor college student. Plus, I wasn't a blogger and it just didn't occur to me as often. And then there's the fact that I was having too much fun to stop and stand behind the camera instead of be in the middle of it all. But I will add a picture of Old Main when it's green...though you don't get much of an idea of how long and steep the hill really is.
I LOVE this place.
