I Went to my Alma Mater's Homecoming Last Weekend

Monday, November 10, 2014


Like most all adventures with my girlfriends, it began with a spur-of-the-moment nail painting party. Because...well, why not? We had plenty of adventures ahead to be ready for.

It was then that our weekend began. We ate hamburgers and drank coffee that came from a food truck that was parked on the campus commons, watched a talent show, saw The Hunts in concert (who are an awesome indie folk band!), and watched movies.

That was just Friday.

Saturday was just as jam-packed. My university put on a production of Romeo and Juliet - my favorite Shakespearean play, believe it or not - and it was really fun seeing it on stage (plus it's always fun seeing friends of mine performing).

After the play, we got Chinese takeout and watched more movies.

But the best part of the past few days has been our fort...or, as we called it, "da fort."

"Da Fort" was made out of one of my best friend's sheets and some masking tape. We set up camp in another one of my best friend's dorm room, and history was made. (Literally. That Saturday was the first time I'd ever gone mattress surfing.)

We finished out the weekend by going to church and grabbing ice cream before I came back home.

Going back to the college you graduated from is quite a lot of fun. So many of those great memories come back, and it's so fun to see old friends and have brand-new adventures that you didn't get the chance to have while in school.

So, I pretty much give my college's homecoming ten out of ten. :)
