Freshman Year Friends

Last Wednesday we had an awesome cookout/Liz's graduation party.  We invited a lot of people who we were friends with from freshman year, and people that Liz has known over her years at UNCG.  It was so much fun!  We took this photo of all of us who lived in the same dorm freshman year- Charles, Alva, Me, Jess, Liz, and Kyla.  It was so good to catch up and reminisce about all of the CRAZY things we did freshman year.  I was reminded of a quote from Tom Petty: 

"You have four years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with jobs. You'll never remember class time, but you'll remember time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So, stay out late. Go out on a Tuesday with your friends when you have a paper due Wednesday. Spend money you don't have. Drink 'til sunrise. The work never ends, but college does..."

So many great times!  Of course, I was not nearly as irresponsible as the quote implies, but I do like the last line.  I need to write down all of our stories and crazy adventures some time, because I don't ever want to forget them!

Sounds like a fun night! I love that quote, and it is so true. I still can't believe it has been 2 years since I graduated from WAC! Hope you still got to go to grad, as I saw it was inside due to rain :(
