Freshman year and nostalgia

Not only has it been ten years since I graduated high school, but even more monumental for me is that it has been 10 years since I started my freshman year at BYU. I had always wanted to go to BYU since I was a little girl and I was so excited to start. I remember buying a bed set as well as a dish set at Target with my mom. I remember buying new clothes. I remember driving down to Provo with my mom and getting everything so I could move into the dorms. It was all so exciting! I met my roommate, Jessica, and I couldn't wait to become friends with her. All of my other roommates were moved in when I got there. They were from all different places, New Jersey, Florida, Idaho and Utah. I just thought that was so cool. I would have to say that my favorite part of freshman year was the week before school started. I thought it was the greatest time I had ever had. There were dances all the time, I was meeting boys like crazy, and I was staying up way too late. I had a blast!

My first class was nutrition in the Crabtree building. I can remember what I wore that first day. I walked to class just beaming! I will never forget the weirdest thing about that class. There was this guy that sat behind me that may have had a slight obsession with my hair. I had super long hair and I kid you not he played with my hair during class all of the time. It was so awkward! I mean what do you say, please don't touch my hair?

Some of my favorite memories are:
- Eating wraps at the Cougareat
-Inevitably hearing someone play John Schmidt's "Waterfalls" on the piano at the Wilky
- Taking 7:00am ballet and running to that class every morning so I could make it in time.
-Make-out Take-out
-My date with the guy who didn't know I was a freshman
-Ice cream at the Creamery
-Walking to football games
-Banana bread
-Going to homecoming
-Being part of the "everyone runs in Provo" club. Running on Center Street.
-Spending a lot of time in the periodicals at the library
-My freshman ward which to be honest I really didn't like
-Not having a car
-The walk of shame (the walk back to the dorms after not doing so well at the testing center)

I could go on and on!! Enjoy some of my pics from freshman year!
