Radvent Day 1: Remembering

What were you doing five years ago today? As the holiday season began? Where were you? Who were you with? What did you want? What did you have?

Five years ago I was 19 and a sophomore at Kent State University. I was probably getting ready for finals week and looking forward to going home for Christmas break. I was living in Terrace Hall but getting ready to move to Leebrick. At this point I had already had several different roommates and realized that I’m not good with roommates.  College made me realize how much I like my space. That was the best thing about college! I had my own space and I made my own schedule! Moving to Leebrick would turn out to be the best decision I could have made.  Five years ago I didn’t have many friends at KSU but I was less than a year away from having some pretty great adventures!

I had started working at the museum the summer before but we hadn’t started any big programs yet. Jordan and I had been together two years but with me at school we didn’t get to spend as much time together as we wanted. It was an uneventful time in my life. I didn’t really like college much, I didn’t have many friends and nothing major was going on. I really didn’t venture out of my dorm room much other than going to class and I went home to work and see Jordan every weekend. I wanted more out of life,  I just hadn’t found it yet.

I honestly think this may have been the most boring time of my life.
