This weekend involved a lot of nothing because we live two blocks away from SMU which started fall classes on Monday. That means people moving in all over the place, including our apartment, so we stayed inside. Also, around 4:00 in the afternoon on Saturday we realized it was very very dark outside. It then proceeded to rain for about 12 hours. Don’t worry, the rats survived.
The talk of classes starting always spurs our nostalgia for Georgia Tech. The excitement of that first school year. Everyone just hanging out on a Tuesday afternoon because you can. Ordering take-out at 2:00 in the morning. Your mom saying to the cashier “That’s disgusting” when your books for the semester ring up to $560 (a favorite moment of mine). I look back on it and think how fun it would be to go back but I think what we really miss is the freedom. It’s a time where you have so much independence but you don’t have to take on all adult responsibilities yet, just a couple at a time. Taylor and I agree that we didn’t fully appreciate how unique and awesome that lifestyle was until after we were out of college. I guess I could still order take-out at 2:00 in the morning but I have IBS and there’s work to do in the morning, damn it!
