This is why I'm sad I didn't go away for college

Since I stayed at home and went to a "commuter college" I never really got the full experience of living away at a college dorm. Although I think doing the WDWCP did make up for that, well partly anyway. I met a lot of people that I still talk with today, and learned a lot about myself. Mostly I did it to prove that I was independent. I mean I cried just about every night I was there for the first three weeks just wanting to go home, but I didn't. That (besides Conner) is one of the things I am the most proud of.

Right, so now that we have established that I am a lame-ass, moving on...

I made good grades here, worked and paid my way through school, didn't have to be far away from my fam or Adam, but sadly I always felt like I missed out on something.

Today, I realized what it was.

How sad is that?


  1. Ha – so you didn’t miss much (^_^). I made the same choice as you. Now that I am applying to graduate schools, I realize that I may have to go away from here. It will be difficult to be away from Jim. It will also be difficult to leave my house and live in an apartment on a college campus somewhere . . . talk about a step back. I understand this thought of missing out on something by staying here, but I think you experienced it in a different way.

  2. Ha! That made me laugh. The foil bling = funny. Also, the boys dancing together. I wonder how long it took them to learn. Funny.

  3. I never got the chance to go away to college. I had to begin working right after high school. I did get my AS degree at night while working during the day. Right now I'm working on my BA at night after work. It's tough but you know I'm happy with the way things worked out for me. I feel like the only thing I have missed out on was being an irresponsible young adult. I had to grow up fast so I missed out on the all the fun stuff that kids did and still do.
