Aggies all the way!

My mom mentioned the other day how my recent flashback's have all revolved around high school and how I write about it as though it was my favorite time if life. I did LOVE high school, but I have NEVER had more fun than I did in college. Honestly. I look back on my college years with great nostalgia. It's so sad to me that life will never be like that again. So fun and care-free. When I think about my college years, it puts me in a bit of a funk. I miss it. I miss the learning. And I miss those friends. A LOT. I actually hate to think about it too much. I certainly don't regret moving on, but those years were far too short.

I really enjoyed all four years for different reasons. But sophomore year in Crestview Apartments may beat out the other years if only by a hair. I went through life at that time thinking we were it. I was certain we were cooler and had more fun than anyone else on campus. Though the later probably was true, I look back at pictures surprised to realize how NOT COOL we actually were. It was nine years ago and we were in Utah and a lot of these kids were from Preston, Idaho (think Napoleon Dynamite)...excuses, excuses, excuses. No matter. I fit right in.

And I have pictures to prove it...

These are from an impromptu dance party right around the end of fall semester when we were all heading home for a few weeks. The pictures are proof of our dorky-ness. Despite that, this goes down in history as one of my favorite nights of all time.


For the few of you Crestview kids that read this...Miss you guys!

I loved your college years because I loved coming to visit and staying in the apartment with all of you fun girls. I can't believe they all let me do that!

I know exactly how you feel! College went by way to fast and lately I've caught myself wishing to go back in time for just one day.

Cute flashback post. I often times wish that I had gone away to a 4 yr college so that I would have had similar experiences.

Hey Katie! Hey, why don't you e-mail me your e-mail address to bitethecake@gmail.com. I actually have something to share with you that might help out a bit with the sad-nastalgia problem. :)

Sigh. I feel the EXACT same way about college. Absolutely positively loved every moment of it--except the times when I had to study over having fun--(because I crammed more than studied--which isn't as fun). I wish college could go on and on and on. I loved it 1000x more than high school. I remember feeling like "college was made for me". I'd love to hear more about your fun-anytime you need to gush, you can gush to me! I'd LOVE to hear all about it.

ps-we had a lot of girls from Preston in our complex too. When Napoleon came out I about DIED-they looked JUST like the girls in my complex!! The hair--just like mine, basically. So big!
