    Miss My College Days...don't Realize What You Have Until It's Gone.

    I graduated from WSU within Washington State in 2002 which was 300 miles away from my home in Seattle. All I could ever think in my dorm room was getting out and starting my career. I went to college a little late (age 25) and graduated at 29 though still had so much fun. My...

    To Be a Student Again

    As much as I love the fact that I am done with school, I absolutely loved it when I was there.  I learned a lot about life, give and take, friendship, priorities, but most importantly I gained trust and faith in myself.  I am very grateful for the experiences I had at...

    More So Now

    I am presently studying part-time, which means I am only around University in the evening times or during leave.  As I work full-time, I do not get to go the seminars that I need, nor spend as much time in the library as I did during my primary degree...

    Met with some dear college friends today.

    For as much as I miss the carefree days of college, I am more satisfied with the life I have now. I have less fear of the unknown than I did, and I am more inclined to take meaningful risks. When I was younger I took stupid risks. Now I take risks with potential to add such...

    I Miss It

    Being an undergrad were the best 4 years of my life, even though they were the toughest.  The hard parts had nothing to do with the academics though.  I did a lot of growing, changing and learning when I was in college - those were the difficult things. But I do miss...

    Last night, I was with my friends

    and saw a friend of mine from college. I haven't seen him for years. As the years pass by, we miss our college days; maybe the best days of our lives. Anyone still on college, just appreciate, share, have fun and study :D

    I miss college. I remember how easy it all was

    back then - meeting people, making friends, dating, life in general. All you need to worry about are your grades.

    Crazy G.

    When I was a Junior in college, a girl hung out between our dorm room and two others. She was not even registered. Her mother had no idea that she was not going to school. Her boy friend had been drafted into the NFL. She said that they were going to be millionaires, so she didn...

    I Can't Wait To Go Back!

    I'm so happy that I'm starting back this fall! I hope I don't get too disappointed...Aside from my goal to be a straight A student and make the Dean's List, I'm really hoping that this will be the time I will make new friends and really sort of find my life again. I'm happy now...
