Since my nephew is just starting college at my alma mater, it takes me back to 18 years ago when I was in the same place! Though it seems almost unbelievable now, my roomie and I did not have a tv in our room! (Oh, the horrors!) We watched regularly across the hall in our friends' room. We waited each day to watch the top videos (maybe it was Top 5 at 5? I don't remember) on MTV. THIS video was one of our favorites that fall. In fact, Allison made it into a funny as we always went straight to dinner after watching these shows:
There's a hole in my stomach that can only be filled by food!
Ah, those were good days. I can almost see the bright colors of the campus all over again just remembering that carefree time. I was quite innocent and in no great hurry to grow up and branch out quite yet. It was a difficult adjustment to make to have so much freedom at my disposal! At one point in those first days I wondered if I had made the right decision to attend school 4 hours away from my parents, but I soon realized that this WAS a good thing. So much of who I am now was formed in those four years, and though part of me wishes I had known then some things I know now, I wouldn't trade those years for anything in the world!
Enjoy the video and remember a time of carefree fun in your life!
