College

I've been thinking a lot about life over the past few months; especially today after my wonderful friend Maggie pointed out that it's our 6 month anniversary of graduating from college (that also means it's been almost 6 months since we all started blogging to keep up with each other!). She asked what we all missed the least from school, and honestly, I could only think of the good things! I learned so much, and grew exponentially as a person during the last four years, and I really wouldn't trade a single experience or do anything over at all. Anyway, her post prompted me to share with you some of my college experience:

1. Picking a school was really hard for me. I visited every school I applied to and found something I disliked about each of them except for W&M. I never really thought I would get in there, and when I did, my dad sent in my deposit before I had even seen the place! I realize now that God had such bigger plans for me than I did for myself.
2. I got paired with a completely random roommate who turned out to be the perfect match for me. We ended up living with each other all four years, she was in my wedding this summer, and now lives right down the street.
3. I started going to FCA, where I became friends with people that I will keep in touch with for the rest of my life, learned a ton about myself, and found out what it meant to have a real relationship with Christ.
4. I met my husband during our sophomore year and proceeded to go to every Tribe Basketball home game (and a lot of the driveable away games) for the next three years.
5. I had a great time. All four years. I studied just enough to get good grades, and spent the majority of my time hanging out, making memories, and building relationships with people.

So, I'm sad it's over, but also very happy/excited about where I am now. I love the area we live in, spending time with Chris, and can't wait to get plugged in to a good church (we've been to the same one two weeks in a row now, finally!). And get ready, because college basketball starts this week, and I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot about it from Chris!
