Junior College

One thing you might not know about me is I went to Junior College my first 2 years and lived at home.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life, degree in Business/Hospitality, but I didn't want to spend a fortune getting there {I had to pay for all of my own schooling.}  All of my friends went to big universities and loved it.  I lived vicariously through them visiting any free weekend I could.  

My first semester of college I took World Religion.  I walk in and saw a familiar face from HS, but didn't personally know her.  There was an empty seat next to her, I sat and we started chatting.  Linds graduated a year before me, went off to college in Colorado, hated it, moved back and attended JC for a year.  We became instant friends.  We spent all our free time together, worked out, waited tables, went on random road trips, indulged in margaritas frequently, we were inseparable   Looking back now we both realized how happy we were.  We didn't have a care in the world.

She is in town for work this week and last night we were able to grab dinner.  We spent the night laughing, catching up on life, her wedding, her new hubby {I was the matchmaker kind of, sort of}, gossiping and just having a great time.  Even though we don't talk as often and rarely see each other I feel so lucky that she is apart of my life.

aw so fun to reconnect with a good, old friend! :) Love this! And um... as someone who has a TON of loans (thank you, law school.. ugh), I am definitely jealous of your junior college stuff! That was super smart of you, girl! Saved yourself a lot of worry later! :) Oh and THANK YOU for the rec on the denim shirt b/c...
