Don't Graduate, Celebrate!
I just got back from an amazing trip to my college town and got to see some old friends from back in the day. The county hold their annual fair right near the campus and it's a big weekend for students and alumni to make some memories. It felt like it was just yesterday that we were all living down the hall from each other and starting trouble all over that small town.
Between meeting up with random old flames and being invited for tequila shots with strangers it was really like we never left the place. In fact, I'll have you all know that someone asked me if I was a freshman and when I replied I was Alumni I think he wet himself. I didn't realize I looked so young. =) I decided that if I were rich I wouldn't go on a fancy trip or buy a fast car. Not me. I would become the next Ryan Reynolds as Van Wilder. I would strategically remain 3 credits short from graduating with a degree in at least 4 different majors. Yeah, if I had a million dollars I'd stay in college forever. Or buy you a monkey...you always wanted a monkey.
I saw a dead bear on the side of the road on my way back. I wish I saw it sooner so that I could have gotten a good pic. I almost ran myself off the road trying to text everyone I knew what I just saw. My sister was the only one who was really excited about it though. We were launched in a full text conversation about the size and location of this dead bear and I almost ran myself off the road...again.
I have Wicked today and I'm very excited. I love going into the city and I haven't been there in over a year. I'm hoping something funny happens but as I sit here thinking about it, how can it not?
