A Few for You

OK folks.  It's school time again.  Fall is rounding the corner.  And some of our fellow journalers have already begun another [or their first] semester in college.  I loved college.  So much to discover.  Little did I know then that life hadn't even begun.  The world is so different today compared to when I was in college. [I never thought I'd hear myself say that.  Where's my cane?]

The following are just a few of some of the greatest young folks' journals.

  Life or Something Like It 

Sarah [aka luckyaugustgirl] is wise, smart, honest, funny, adorable and willing to be vulnerable on her journey to self-discovery.  I don't know how she is in 'real life' but online she comes across as a shy artist and writer, a little unsure of her place in the world.  But so ready to find out.  Lately I've noticed she's starting to come out of her shell a bit.  She's a little obsessed with shopping, and eBay.  But she knows where to find that out-of-stock Gap sling bag for almost half the price.  Pay her a visit and read all of her most recent entries.  You'll see how diverse she is.

I love the name of Mallory's journal.  I can't believe I haven't mentioned her before.  She's a talented artist who loves orange! [right on girl]  She took a lot of the summer off from journaling - probably because most of her entries were about her life in school.  Classes, friends, her sister, her family, etc.  She takes great photos and creates beautiful art.  But she'd probably tell you otherwise.  If she could only see herself the way others see her.  She's very shy, so don't overwhelm her with loud comments just yet [Gregg].  But be sure to visit her and leave a note.

  Kool Aid and Ramen

I'm pretty sure most of you know of Jesse.  So this is either a new journal for you to check out, or a reminder about a great one.  Jesse's young in body but old in spirit.  He's cute [oh-so-cute], in grad school, close with his family and surviving cancer.  He's not updating as frequently.

Don't mess with these folks.  For some reason I feel very protective of our college journalers.  [and there are so many!]  Suddenly I feel so old.  That's not like me.  But to think, kids starting college this year were born the year I graduated high school.  That's so sad. 

It's okay.  I have these guys to keep me young.  Well, that and my naturally youthful spirit.   ::::::flapping wings::::::

Hee.  I certainly never think of you as being old!  I think you're younger than I am?  Oh my.  It's interesting how our definition of "old" changes.

Yes, I loved college, too.  I actually miss it. ::sigh:: I didn't start until I was 21.  Graduated in 1996.  It doesn't feel like a million years ago.  lol

I WISH I had a blog back in college to record the adventures of campus life.  Hours of endless entertainment, lost to the caverns of my fractured memory.  **sigh**

Should it frighten me that college seems about a million years ago when I just graduated in 2002?
