Oh also linking up with Kathy today because honestly is there any better confessions than old embarrassing photos?
I was living in Gainesville and going into my Junior year. I had gotten into an Honors research program for the College of Nursing. Gainesville in the Summer is the best time to be there, less traffic, you can actually go to Publix and the bartenders servers remember your orders. I had a nice routine that Summer, get up go to the gym, pool, log some research hours, take a nap and then head out…..rinse and repeat it was pretty stellar. I celebrated my 20th with my big big in my Sorority who I was inseparable with that Summer out I believe at the Swamp. 20 though seriously…..I mean does this one even count? You’re not 21 so you can’t legally drink and you are no longer in your teens. Blah this age in general is kind of uneventful.
I mean were my friends not the cutest things ever? They kept it a surprise and came out dancing to some song with those shirts on. They had to buy extra letters for all the extra A’s hahahaha. My birthday night Gainesville was a ghost town (no problems easier access bar), we wore the exact same outfits the next night (I mean if no one saw it…it doesn’t count right) and had two 21st birthdays it was pretty epic. Thank goodness Facebook hadn’t taken off yet….that is all I have to say. My friends made me a laminated sign of things I had to do….clearly I surround myself with people just as Type A/OCD as myself (or Nursing gals same thing).
Or it could have well very well been this night where I wasn’t dressed like a beauty pageant Queen.
In Philadelphia getting my Masters degree at University of Pennsylvania. We had sushi at our favorite place Raw (I know so original) and then headed out to Old City. This was also the start of the birthday cup tradition. It is still kicking. That thing has been across the country, in very potentially breaking situations and it has survived!
