College Life Timeline

August 1st, 2008 · 3 Comments · college life, the funniest people we know, the hottest girls at USU, tina

My recent visit with old friends from my college days made me realize that there are gaps in my memory – or more specifically the chronology of events over the course of the years. I was reminded of tons of things we did together – and where my memories failed me others’ memories filled in. In effort to not forget even more, I’ve decided to write a chronology of events (and other college memories).

I’ll do the best I can to make this accurate, and as I write more detailed posts about any given activity or event I’ll make a point to come back here and link to them.

Wish me luck! And welcome to the journey I called college.

    It’s kinda fun to see how your roommates changed and dwindled down to a few. I also had a question…what were you doing with Sororities, sex, and drugs your first year in college young lady!

  • Tina

    Ha! I thought that one might catch someones attention. You’ll just have to wait and see… I’ll do a blog post about it in the next week or so.

  • Dave

    You left out “eyeball massages.”
