I just got caught up in a bout of nostalgia... at work.
I was looking at BYU football's win-loss record, and I clicked on the school website. I haven't been to the BYU website in years.. since I swore off Blackboard and Provo forever in April of 2006.
I was immediately hit with nervousness and excitement.. the same emotions I felt when I was applying to BYU, after I was accepted, and all of the details after. I thought of the first email I got from my dorm roommate Amber, all of the letters in the mail from BYU about potential majors, dining plans, etc.
In that moment, I actually MISSED college.. BYU... the dorms.. the whole bit! Me! The cynical single gal who couldn't wait to leave Provo.
But.. what I think I actually missed was the excitement about a new adventure in life.. The possibility that anything and everything was going to happen in the next couple of years. I think the general thought for me was that my potential HUSBAND could be walking around the corner any second now.. (Remember why I went to BYU.)
Then I started to think about what I often reminisce about:
--Engagement times.. pre-wedding, all of the planning.. so exciting!
--Cheerleading.. the fun, the skirts, the drama..
--College life. Stay up late, skip class sometimes, no real responsibility.
--Shopping trips at the mall with no husband (no guilt!)
Real life is EXPENSIVE. Real life doesn't provide you with the feeling of new prospects around every corner (at least mine doesn't). Work is work. I guess I like the excitement of new things... which in the future can include children, buying a home, and...?
So, what are some of your favorite pasttimes you look back on and enjoy?
