The Living Learning Center....3.5 years later!
Who would have thought that almost 3.5 years out of college I would still be best friends will of my freshmen dormmates!! SDSU has a wonderful dorm called the Living Learning Center, better known as the LLC where students live and learn together for their first year at college - helping them get more acquainted with the campus and more comfortable with the transition into their new school. I remember meeting everyone for the first time all of us were saying "my parents made me live here", "I thought this was a dorm for kids with special needs", etc, etc. Then as the year went on, slowly we realized we had probably the craziest dorm in all of the school. We were the most crazy, partying kids that SDSU had ever had especially at the LLC and we loved every minute of it. I think if I could go back to one point in my life it would be back to freshman year. I enjoyed meeting so many people, being there on my own, making new friends and obviously meeting my (now) fiance. Who would have thought that such a tiny decision as to the "dorm" I was going to live in would have changed the course of events in my life forever?
To celebrate such a wonderful decision, myself, Shaunna, Kris and Jeremy decided to organize a super fun NERD pub crawl for all LLC kids who were in our dorm Freshman year. It was a complete success! Even Jake (Gregg's best friend) flew down from Sacramento to join in on the fun. We had the best time catching up with everyone, seeing everyone's silly outfits and reminiscing about all our old memories of Freshman year. Ahh let the good times roll....
Now that we are all older, grown up, more mature (hopefully) it was really neat to talk about some of the things we are doing. Kristen showed up and is almost 6 months pregnant, that was a treat! Gregg and I got to announce out engagement to a few people which is always a fun time. People got to meet each other's significant others that had never met before! It was such a fun experience. Maybe we'll have to keep the tradition alive and continue this crawl in another few years!!!
I'm so happy I lived in the LLC - Thanks Mama and Dad for making me live there!! My life would never be as wonderful as it is now if I hadn't!!!
