I Loved College.

Three years ago I graduated college. So it's only appropriate I listen to Asher Roth's "I Love College" 24935809586 times today right?

I mean I really did love college. And even if I didn't have all the scenarios from the song, I had some really ridiculous and awesome times and if I could I would do it all over again.

Last year on this day I shared some college pics, but this year I want to share some college fun facts and mini-stories to take me back and share a bit with the freaders, so here we go:
  • My school had a huge hill to get up to campus from town. After going to the bars one night, my friend Kathleen and I most definitely got a ride from a pizza guy, we hopped in the back of his pick up and rode to the top. Oh good times.

  • Kathleen and I also liked to reenact the scene from the Notebook when Noah and Ally lie in the middle of the street. What can I say? We rock.



  • My junior year of college I made a fake Real World video with some of my friends and it's one of the funniest videos ever, I seriously need to get that edited.

  • Also junior year, I got my friend AJ (who doesn't really like sweets) to chug chocolate syrup for peppermint patty shots and he started dancing to Usher's "Yeah" in a room full of girls. And it's all on video, haha.

  • I had my own radio show and loved it. However, funny story I was so hungover once that I puked in the trash can in the lobby...while a song was playing. And yeah it was the first day I had a mentee, haha.

  • Freshmen year when it was snowing and we decided to steal trays from the dining hall by tossing them out the window so we could go sledding on them. Best idea I've ever had, haha. Worst idea? Not wearing gloves when I went sledding, whoops!

  • Also freshmen year, Jennifer Garner came to campus to speak and we got to ask her questions. And I asked her something along the lines of why did she do Dude Where's My Car? How that question came to me I have no idea, but I wish I had asked something cooler.

  • When it was announced that Britney Spears had her bebe my roomies and I played Britney music, danced on the furniture and sang as loud as we could....until our RA told us we needed to turn it down a notch, haha.

  • My sophmore year my friends and I started Wasted Week. Basically we drank the whole week and had theme nights (like Minnesota Monday) and harassed all of our friends that were actually doing work, it was wonderous.

  • One night my friend Zoe and I tried to high five each other and completely missed. Like completely. It then became tradition to never get it right and even add a few steps. It was like our secret non-handshake, haha.

  • Senior year we had a Price is Right party and it was awesome. We even had a drink-o board. Seriously, best party of the whole year.


Seriously I could keep this going forever but this post is already long. Basically college was amazing and I can't believe it's already been three years since I was there, like wo.

...And even more appropriate is that one week from today I'll be in North Carolina with seven of my best college friends (the first time all of us have been together since May '07)!!


camped out at The Price is Right


cheers to the eight great!

And I couldn't be more excited!!


Any good college memories you want to share?

Mandy said...

I have a lot of great college memories -- stealing the cereal machine from the cafeteria, calling campus security at 3am during finals week to get us a pie from the kitchen, throwing pumpkins off the roof of the dorm, jello shots for 21st birthday....twas a grand time. I am glad that you have such great memories!

I'm from Ohio/went to college here as well and a bunch of my friends trekked to my on-campus apartment my senior year even though there was about a foot of snow on the ground. The night ended in a drunken, snow ball fight. It was glorious. I didn't think I would miss those days so much but I do!!

Congrats on the engagement!

i made a real world tape too. My friends and I videotaped ourselves dancing, then forget the video tape was on so it taped for hours. We took it everywhere - I wonder where that tape is right now...

Beth said...

The Raisin Girl said...

My freshman year me and one of my friends were on our way back from Wal-Mart at about 2 in the morning, when my car started running hot and stalling out. So I pulled over in a BP station parking lot and started fretting about where I would ever find a mechanic at 2 AM. Turns out, there was a mechanic in the parking lot already! He went to his house and got the parts for my car while his friend stayed behind with "us girls" to make sure we weren't robbed or kidnapped or anything...which is kind of ironic because, we found out later, his friend was an ex-con. Anyway, the guy got back an hour later and fixed my car for free! I drove the ex-con to his house and me and my friend went back to campus...all in all, an unexpected adventure.

Kiki said...

ohhh college. can we go back? please?

also, we need to scope out a street in the g'boro to get our ally and noah on. :)

can't wait to see you SOOOO soon!

Bex said...

Hahahhaha... a lovely walk down memory lane. And double HA to AJ, I completely forgot about that one.

Needless to say, I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL IN JUST A WEEK. YAY!!! :)

Leah said...

This post made me mis, and then REALLY NOT MISS college (I think it was the trash can puking-ness that fixed that desire to be back in college).
It sounds like you had some amazing friends and opportunities when you were in college - radio show? That's freaking awesome!

Gerty said...

BUUUUDDDDDYYYYYY im sad I didnt get a shout out!

Matt said...

Sledding with the lunch trays?

BRILLIANT!!!

Jessica said...

Sounds like you had one hell of a college life! You sound like someone that would defiantly fit in with the crowd I hang out with lol! Especially with that Wasted Week. Some of my friends would love to partake in something like that. I also love college and I'm sad that I'll be done in a year, year and a half.

I actually have a funny story to share that happened maybe about a month or so ago. We were having a party at my house like we do every weekend and i was hanging out with my friend jackie and dakota and all of a sudden jackie suggests we go to the club when its already like midnight. so we drop what were doing and drive to the club. were having a good time and toward the end dakota decides to go get the car. so after the last song jackie and i get outside and dakota isnt out there waiting for us so we call her. she tells us that she is on her way home. she left us stranded at the club because she couldn't find her way to the front of the club since we parked in a different spot than we normally do. so she tells us she is on her way but my boyfriend and friend dave came to get us instead and we go to dakotas apartment to get our stuff that we left in her car and she was at her apartment the whole time! it was one hell of a night!
