I've been having too much with with Megs these last few days to blog, but I'm still thankful for things, don't worry.
I spent a little time one afternoon this week with a high school student who has applied to my alma mater. Alumni interviews are part of the application process, and I've spent the last 5 years or so, volunteering to meet with a handful of students each year, talking to them about Georgetown, and then writing a nice little report about them for the admissions committee.
As much as I want to be intimidating and ask obscure questions, I can't.
But it's nice cause to reflect on my college days, and I'm really thankful for my education. There are lots of ways to be educated in today's world, and not every path is right for everyone. But for me, being able to attend college was a great blessing. I know that many struggle with options on where they can attend college or how to pay for it. It's a privilege that I was able to go without too many hurdles (oh yeah, student loans still loom over my head a bit, but still worth it).
And where I went to school is probably one of the best decisions I've made in life so far. For me, it was perfect. I am still sometimes amazed that I was accepted from a middle of nowhere town to this place with interesting people from all over the world. But I was, and I went without question, and I had the time of my life. It's taken me a lot of places and created great friendships, and I wouldn't change a thing about it. Except maybe I should've studied more.
