That was all well and good but my head was still stuck at dinner the night prior. A co-worker, the JA and I went down to University of Maryland College Park to have dinner with some recent alumni. We ate dinner at Ledo Restaurant and, honestly, I was disappointed. Normally, Ledo is one of my favorite places for pizza (pineapple and pepperoni all the way!), but they were out of pineapple. So we ordered a few options. Totally not the same.
But the company rocked. It was so great to see the kids, hear about their first-semester at college and tell them about what’s going on at school.
As if that weren’t enough, we ran into some old friends…
On the car ride home, we pumped some ‘old-school’ tunes. I was transported back to walking across Penn State’s campus in the spring. To the last night out before graduation. To my first concert on the campus center lawn. To the football games that I remember were awesome, but for reasons other than the score.
Truth: there are still times that I miss college. But sitting there with these boys mad me realize that my time has passed. While it’s great to go back and visit, I’m not in that place anymore. I’m somewhere more stable, more comfortable and more exciting in its own way.
What do you miss/enjoy most about college?
