The Crowd is Your Memoir

College is truly some of the best four (or more) years of your life. You are told that before college, while you are in college, and you STILL think it after you graduate. The ‘FOMO’ is very real after graduation – I definitely feel it a little bit every day

What you choose to do with your time in college is important but not only is it about what you do…it is about the people. The people make your college experience. The people are your experience.

You honestly never know who you’re going to meet. You will meet new friends, best friends, future bridesmaids or groomsmen; you will meet people you are not fond of, future employers or even future employees.  You could meet your significant other or an inspiring mentor. No matter what you think of the people you meet, they will make some kind of impact on you and your one-of-a-kind experience.

You will feel a rush of emotions for certain people – whether it be happiness, love, anger, sadness – they will have made an impact. When you graduate, you truly appreciate the people you went to school with, you were in a sorority with or even the people you had classes with. It’s the little things you miss about people that make you think about the college memories.

Around three years ago at this time, I met Chris. If it wasn’t for doing something in college and wanting to meet people, I wouldn’t have experienced our relationship. Yes, we met on Tinder, but I knew he was a real person and went to the same college because our Greek organizations worked together for Homecoming 2014. He truly helped make an impact on my college experience from sophomore to senior year – and well, I guess he’s making an impact on post-grad life too.

This is why I want to share my experiences with my very geed-y boyfriend. It is one-of-a-kind in our own way. We probably have different perspectives of it but we are experiencing it together (well, at least when he is in Reno). Through videos, we are finding a way to express our story.

What you want to experience is your own story – start a movement and make it count.
