Don’t forget the memories

One word: summer.

This is what you start daydreaming about during long hours of studying for finals. It is the ultimate payoff for all of your hard work and a time to finally relax. However, when you leave for the summer and hit the snooze button at 6:30 a.m. for your job, you realize that those 8:30 classes weren’t so bad after all. That’s not the only thing you realize, though. Summer is a time to reflect on your semester and truly appreciate the small things. While having had almost finished the first month of my summer, there are a few things that I look back on which I’ve been able to compile in a list that could go on for pages. Lucky for you, I’ll give you a little preview. So, here are a few things I miss and appreciate about college life:

  1. Thinking that a 9:00 class was way too early!

  2. Not getting dressed in business casual every morning, sweats are more appropriate.

  3. Devoting your whole Saturday to football games.

  4. Never coming home to an empty room.

  5. Instead of having one closet, you have everyone else’s to run to.

  6. Squeezing in a work-out at midnight is perfectly acceptable.

  7. Realizing you’re hungry at 3 a.m. and Jimmy Johns is there in 2 minutes.

  8. Being surrounded by inspiring YOUNG people with BIG dreams.

  9. Being a mentor to amazing 3rd graders at College Mentors for Kids.

  10. Going 18 hours without sitting at the PUDM (Purdue University Dance Marathon) for the most courageous Riley kids.

  11. Realizing how much a letter in the mail from home can mean.

  12. Always having someone to kick back and have a movie marathon with.

  13. Keeping in touch with your high school friends that mean so much.

  14. More importantly: having them visit.

  15. Getting involved with anything and everything.

  16. Being introduced to people with so many different interests. There really is something for everyone.

  17. Finally, meeting friends that become family when yours is so far away.
