Yes, I’m totally cherry picking my “Ten on Tuesday” experiences. I know I haven’t done one of these for a while but this week’s questions gave me an excuse to relive the good times that was college.
1. Where did you go to college?
UT at Austin!
2. What did you study?
Majored in biology and philosophy and minored in computer science.
3. Was college really all that it was cracked up to be?
Completely. Some of my closest friends I’ve made in college and we still keep up with each other even after graduating 5 years ago. Awesome, funny, memories, milestones and growing pains. Hardly any bills! You can skip class if you wanted to (can’t skip work). You can pull all nighters easily. Also at the risk of sounding like a geek, I enjoyed cramming, taking tests, taking notes, and late night study groups.
4. How far were you from home?
2.5 hours from Houston.
5. Did you have the same roommate all four years?
I had the same roommate for the first 3 years. She’s my girl. Just celebrated her birthday not too long ago. Lived by myself the last year.
6. Where did you order food from at 2am?
Pluckers for wings. Or drive/walk to Kerbey Lane, a 24 hour breakfast diner.
7. Did you date in college or were you tied down?
I was tied down. Met him beginning of freshmen year and didn’t break up til end of college. Um, if you can avoid it, I recommend not being tied down in college!
8. Funniest drunk college moment?
It wasn’t that funny. 9 years ago, I was learning how low my tolerance was freshmen year. After two shots of Goldschlager, my roommate had to carry me home. I think it’s only funny because til this day she tells me I may look light, but am pretty heavy dead weight! Also, after that night I didn’t take another drink of alcohol for over a year. I’ve never had another drop of Goldschlager again.
9. Did you make it to class on time?
I was either on time or I skipped.
10. What was your favorite class in college?
I enjoyed all my computer science classes. Namely because of bonding time with Deesh and Jen and cute German exchange students. My favorite biology class was Vertebrate Physiology. I rocked that class. My favorite philosophy class was with Robert Soloman (RIP and yes, he has a Wikipedia page!) for Existentialism.
