Oh Sun, I missed you. Oh college, I miss you.

So remember a week ago when I was whining about the ridiculously gloomy weather? Yeah well apparently the weather gods took pity on me and have given me this as today's forecast:

Doesn't that just make you happy? Ah. Sun. I love you.

Now if only I could just ditch work and go straight to the beach, then the day would be perfect, haha. I'll just settle with eating my lunch and reading outside, sounds like a good way to absorb the day, woo.

Okay moving on from the weather, because really you can only say so much. My friend AJ just brought to my attention the fact that two years ago today we graduated college....ummmwtf?!?! How did that happen?!?! Now I know I have some readers that have been out of college much longer and are probably past the phase of wishing they were back, etc, but really for me it was seriously four of the best years of my life. Anyone that knows me knows how much I loved college, it's sort of ridiculous, haha. There are so many stories I could share and people I could talk about, but instead I'll just share some pictures from my college years to commemorate today (and I'll try not to tear up I swear):
Freshman Year:
Hangin out on my roomie's bed
and yes note my hot coat, haha.

The aftermath of one kickass snow fight
...of course the girls won

Sophmore Year
Roomies love their their Malibu

We were all about school spirit!

And theme parties, haha.

Limos are for winners (and birthdays!)

Junior Year
Who doesn't love Christmas?

(seriously only one Junior year pic online?!
I swear we did more than just holidays that year, haha)

Senior Year
Jock Jams party at our place

We are so crazay

Seriously, who doesn't love costumes?

And who doesn't love huge drinks?

The best GDI family around

We made it to the Price is Right!

AJ and I straight BAMFs

Apparently graduating didn't make us any more mature

Oh college, how I heart thee. I seriously have like five albums full of pictures from college because this was pre-digital camera and most pre-Facebook. These are just some of the best I could find. Anyhoo, hope you enjoyed my college montage, I know I did, haha.

Hope you all have a most fabulous Wednesday! Woo!

happy wednesday!

Kate, I miss YOU! And college too, of course. Seriously, come to Columbus this fall. Surely airline prices will fall by then? Or you could just move here. Actually, Alex is looking at Stanford for business school in a far is that from you?

I've only been out of college for a year but I was actually just thinking about how I miss everyone! It's so funny to me because I have such different memories and different friends from every year. I could write a post about every year, and they would all be completely different.

I agree. Today's weather is fabulous! However, the news kept mentioning a heat wave last night so I'm wondering when that will hit.

College girlfriends are the best! I have had Peter Pan syndrome this week as well. Growing up can be hard and nostalgic!

Strange, no?

Stephanie said...

We actually had sunshine in New York today too! And I sat outside and read for lunch and it was glorious!

Auburn Kat said...

OK, I offically miss college!!!

The weather was nice here for a couple of days, now, it's back to rain!

Traci Anne said...

Okay, I love you, but WAH. NYC weather is totally bipolar and I can't wait sunny California!

Also, omg, it's been THREE YEARS since I graduated college. I AM OLD.

Kingshuk said...

Cool Pics and a nice blog..

Sarah Marie said...

Hee- I love your little weather report! So funny. All of your college pics look like SO much fun! Makes me wish that I had gone away for school. Man... I feel like I'm getting old too-- and I graduated from college one year ago this month. CRAZY!

L Sass said...

Two years??? Girl, please! I'm at five as of Sunday.

I drank my fair share of Malibu back in those days, too.

Laurie said...

It was 3 years ago yesterday that i graduated college and I must say, I don't really miss it. But I do miss some of my friends :)

Fashionable Obsessions said...

That looks like so much fun!

Jenn said...

I've switched schools every year so I never had a tight group of friends. I wish I did. I think mostly I just want the pictures so I can look back and think of what awesome times I had :)

Julie said...

Ugh I miss college too.
But it's funny because I work here now, so I guess I just miss being in college..

Where did you go to school??
Looks like fun!

Wait, you mean AJ did not stay in his room and practice his baseball swing on Friday nights? For shame!

Oh yea, nice pictures.

I'm so glad you had such a good time in college. I feel like I missed out on a lot of stuff in high school and college. In high school I kept to myself and just my closest friends and in college I lived at home to save money. I kinda wish I had stayed in the dorms for my "experiences". I have only a handful of pictures I think. *sniff*

Nanette said...

Yay for great weather! And those pics are so cute!

B2G said...

Oh my these pictures were so cute! It looks like you had a total blast!
