i love my little family and life right now, but sometimes i can't help but miss the simplicity of college. oh, how lucky i was to live in a house full of girls and be surrounded by my best friends every day! (sometimes a husband can't heal the way a good girlfriend can.) there were always people to laugh with, people to study with, and people to stay up all night watching sex and the city reruns and drinking cheap wine with. (secretly, i wish i could do that every night.) i formed my very best friendships in college.
that was before iphones, when everyone was happy with her call-and-text-only flip phone. when a group of us sat in a room, no one was feverishly "liking" instagram photos or responding to messages on facebook, distracted; we were content just hanging out. i miss that, too. these days, someone's always glued to a little screen.
i just read an article in women's health magazine titled, "how to 'friend' someone in real life." i laughed while reading it, but actually it was kind of sad. the moral of the story was to pull yourself away from facebook and instagram and, instead, say hello to the woman who runs on the treadmill next to yours at the gym. seems like a no-brainer, doesn't it?
what do you miss?
