Our Favorite and Least Favorite College Memories3:57 PM
They were the best of times and they were the worst of times. That pretty much sums up our college experience thus far. It's not as wild and crazy like all those movies made us think it'd be, but it wasn't always an easy road either. Shannah and I wanted to share our some of our favorite and worst parts our college life with you thus far.
Getting out of the country was the best thing that's happened to me. It really made me realize I don't have to be stuck in one place forever. And I met some amazing people and saw some amazing things.

I began writing for my school's newspaper, The AUMnibus, during my sophomore year in college and have been writing there ever since. It's a great feeling to see your work actually be printed and published online for everyone to see.

Getting a car. I spent a good amount of time taking and missing the bus to get to my classes, which sucked because I had to wake up at least two hours before school to ready and wait on the bus. But then I bought a car which quickly eliminated all of the waiting.
Getting a car. I know I listed this in favorites, but the car was a lemon. I felt like I got sucked into buying it and I wasted lots of money fixing it up. I could have payed off a semester of school for all the money that thing cost me.
I worked a lot during college. I had to. That's not a bad thing in itself, but I allowed my work to consume valuable time I could have taken to spend with friends and family. I now know how to balance work and life a lot better now and I won't let work take me over me like that again.
Movie Nights were always a favorite memory in college. At my University there is $1 movie night, which allows me to see any movie in the theater for $1. $1 movie nights were only offered the first and third Wednesday of each months. Last year I went to every movie night.
Living in an Apartment. It's always great to have my own room and bathroom. I just love the privacy.
Sometimes my friends will have dinner nights at their apartment which were always fun.
Going to college football and basketball games were also a highlight from my college experience
It seems like the older I got the more alone I was in college. One of my old roommate said it best "you can always tell a freshman from a senior, freshman usually come in packs, while seniors usually walk alone."
The food is okay at times, but whenever the dining hall doesn't have a great dinner, I'm usually stuck eating a burger or pizza.
