Sometimes I miss college. I was SO ready to be out, but now that I am ... I'm ready to go back. Isn't that just the way life works. ha. I couldn't wait to get out and have a job and be able to come home every day and leave my work at work and not have homework. What I didn't realize was the amount of free time I had. I remember saying these words over and over again "I'm SOOO busy." Busy ... bah ... I didn't know what busy was. My busy consisted of: watching bachelor every Monday night, going to sorority events, going to get froyo 5 times a week, football games, spending quality time with friends, attending campus ministry events, and the tiny amount of time I spent in the actual classroom. Now my day consists of working from 8:30-5:30 everyday. Oh yeah and not to mention I wake up at 7:00 to be ready to leave for work at 8:00 and then I get stuck in rush hour traffic on the way home and usually get home around 6:00...then I go to bed at 10:00 or 10:30 to wake up and do it all over again. So that leaves me a total of 4 hours to do what I want to every day. By the time I eat dinner and exercise that knocks me down to about 2 hours. 2 hours people! I'm not trying to have a debbie downer attitude because I'm so grateful for the wonderful job and life I have been given. I am simply just trying to emphasize how great I had it and didn't even realize.

So I would like to take this time to give a shout out to all the wonderful things college entails ...

-Living with friends! Humes. Laurel. Red Saile. These places hold wonderful memories for me. I thoroughly enjoyed living with my best friends.
-The freedom to take a personal day if needed. If you are still in school skip one day just because you can.
-Social events and meeting new people everywhere you turn! I  mean everytime I went to the library I saw 500 people I knew.
-Chi Omega. Being in a sorority was really fun. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to meet so many people and do so many neat things.
-Football games as a student. Enough said.
-Wearing t-shirts EVERYDAY.
-Late night adventures. Like driving down pedestrian.
-Getting free stuff walking to class. How cool is that?!
-Sleeping until 9 or even 10 sometimes
-Being free during the day

Don't get me wrong ... there are plenty of great things about being out of school. But if you are still in college live it up while you can. Just sayin.
