I Miss College

I Miss College

Friday, September 02, 2016 Adrian Wood Comments (0)

I miss college. I miss being blissfully unaware of the dream I was living. I remember those 8 o'clock classes that seemed like the devil and now it is lunch making, breakfast fixing, yelling and finding shoes all before 7am. I had it so good.
I miss college. I miss arranging a schedule around only myself, pondering Friday classes and wondering if three classes a day may just be too tiring. I had it so good.
I miss college. I miss having my own room with a king size bed (two twins pushed together) where I could simultaneously watch tv, eat pizza and smoke a cigarette, not to mention practice my Chaucer lines. I had it so good.
I miss college. I miss getting an allowance each month for absolutely nothing necessary, my food, gas, car, tuition and housing paid for entirely. I essentially received a salary to live in, as what I see now as a quaint educational spa.
I miss college. I miss wearing my flannel pajama pants to class and that being the norm to those around me. I had it so good.
I miss college. I miss the friendship that traveled with those days of little responsibility and gobs of time for learning so much about a person that you felt two halves of a whole. I had it so good.
I miss college. I miss learning and thinking and having someone to keep me on track with my thoughts, challenge me to write better, be better, think harder. Now I am left often faltering and backtracking the thoughts that come out wrong to the world, but seemed safe in a classroom. I had it so good.
I miss college. I miss the clothes swapping and the extent of my wardrobe back then. Between a few roommates, one could dress in something new each Thursday night. I had it so good.
I miss college. I miss those Thursday nights and the anticipation of getting a plan together, wondering when we should head out, who we might see and where we may go. I had it so good.
I miss college. I miss the Spring Break that equated travel, places like Key West with large groups of college friends. I had it so good.
I miss college. I miss the days of being young and I'm glad I had it so good because today is even better.
