The Good Ole Days
College was an incredible experience, I made tons of new friends and proved to myself that I could achieve. I was extremely nervous heading into school, but orientation turned out to be tons of fun. Besides the corny ice breaking activities, I realized all the freedom I would soon have and decided to make the best of it. The pin that I had lying around for 8 years represented that experience, but I had no place to keep the item. It sat awkwardly on my dresser and would always get moved when I cleaned my room.
In my quest to get rid of all the clutter and items, this pin did not fit into my life. I remember orientation well and will never forget my college experience, so why did I need to keep this pin around? In throwing it away, I took a second to think of the good moments and not reflect on the actually piece of plastic nametag.
Moment I will never forget: During icebreaking games, one kid going “my name is Bob and I like … Buns?” So he was forever called Buns for the next 4 years. The same thing happened to my friend “donut dave” I remember meeting a cool kid who never made it to the first day of college. Crazy that nearly everyone can remember who was in their group even though it was long ago. Orientation was the first college experience and it turned out to be great. I know a few kids who ended up hating it, but if you can be yourself and not act too cool, then you set yourself up for a good 4 years.
