Request #3: College Roomie asked me to blog about IHOP moments. Allow me to explain. :) In college, we used to have these crazy 2 am breakfasts at IHOP. You never knew what would happen, but it would always be a packed house with people who were friendly, loud, and happy. The last couple weeks of our senior year, they hired a security guard---a little old man in like his 70's named Woody. You can imagine how the guys enjoyed that!! :)
This got me thinking....why was IHOP such a big deal? What made those nights so special? I think it was because we were forming our college family. I remember graduating from high school and being sure I'd never have better friends than those. And while my high school friends are still great, I understand now when people say you make your best friends in college. You truly do become a family with your friends in college.
You're on your own, figuring out what you want and who you want to be and your college friends are the people who help you do that. I don't know how to even put into words how much my college friends mean to me. You guys were always there for me---good times, bad times, crazy times. It was like having five houses that were all home and having a huge, crazy family be there for me.
You made college the best time of my life and I will always be grateful for you!
