I just realized this morning that it's been ten years (ten years!) since I did my summer session in college. One of the degree requirements for my bachelor's program was a four week long session held at one of the extended campuses. I took advantage of an alternate opportunity that is no longer allowed as a replacement to the original session. It was definitely one of the best parts of my college experience.
How can it be ten years already?
Ten years since I spent four weeks living in a cabin in the mountains.
Ten years since I hiked Cascade and Porter by myself.
Ten years since my first kiss with Christian at the dump.
Ten years since I went almost-native and didn't want to come back.
Ten years since I knew exactly what I was going to do with my life.
