An Ode to College
In yesterday's post I brought up "college me" -- a girl who wanted to be a big fish in a little pond in desperate need of an attitude and perspective adjustment. Today, I give you permission to giggle at college me...
Yes. Laugh. If you aren't currently laughing, I know you are trying to hold it in. That picture on the left -- hilarious. What's more hilarious is that is the picture that I posted all around campus on my student council campaign posters (i won). The picture on the right -- senior year, my townhouse roommates. I have a comb-over and a piece of leather tied around my neck. American Eagle jeans an da (borrowed) pop-collard Lacoste polo. Cool.
Some more random pictures from the 4 years that were college.
College me was in a sorority (adpi). I took 4 years of ROTC and was sure to wear matching accessories and lipgloss to field events. One fall, I had a pet pumpkin named squatty. I carried him around some and eventually left him to rot in my neighbors dorm room. I went to Viet Nam with the history department and used my souvenirs as a Halloween costume. I worked at a summer camp and met a really cute boy.
A random smattering of photo history and information, but all a part of my story. Do you feel like you know me better now, or have I left you more confused?
How is it that I felt so old and mature then?
Dear College. You changed my life. Love, Blair.
edit to add: I just remembered that college Blair had a blog!! hilarious and random. here's the link:
Peanut Butter, Balloons, Monkies, and Snails (yes that is what its name was. also, please note the URL when you get there.)
