Reminiscing. . . .

(The Official Passtime of Ohio State)(Me as "Silent Bob" & Sarah)(Amanda)(Drew on the left, Hannah, and Matt is above me!)(With Renee and Rusty)(Jill, New Year's Eve '06)(Renee's Long Night!)(Renee & My "Tennis Buddy"!)(PARTY TIME!)(Really, Really drunk with Jen. "Fuggen Raht Dawgie!")(Laura)

A post by a fellow friend of the Blogosphere, La Belle Saison, (read her blog, it's great!) about here old party days, kind of inspired this post. A couple of years ago I spent two years attempting to go back to school full time at The Ohio State University, in Columbus, of said state. I did a decent job of studying until I ran out of money in early 2006, and had to depart. While I was there I met a lot of great people and had a bunch of amazing times. Now, I am happy where I am in life now (with a more grown up life again, and a girlfriend who puts up with all my crap, God Bless Her), but in honor of the fact that this month most of the people I met will be graduating and scattering about to their grown up lives this May, here are some of the highlights of the people and fun I had while I was there. I may never cross their paths again (except Laura, who is the only one I keep in regular contact with), but I wll never forget the fun we had!

Oh come let's sing Ohio's praise
And songs to Alma Mater raise
While our hearts rebounding thrill
With joy which death alone can still
Summer's heat or winter's cold
The seasons pass the years will roll
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!

These jolly days of priceless worth
By far the gladdest days on earth
Soon will pass and we not know
How dearly we love Ohio
We should strive to keep thy name
Of fair repute and spotless fame
So in college halls well grow
And love thee better ... OHIO!

Though age may dim our mem'ry's store
We'll think of happy days of yore
True to friend and frank to foe
As sturdy sons of Ohio
If on seas of care we roll
Neath blackened sky or barren shoal
Thoughts of thee bid darkness go
Dear Alma Mater...OHIO!

Damn it, I left a comment and then lost it grrr.

Okay, here goes;

Firstly cheers for linking to me! Glad I inspired you woooohooo!

Secondly,the photos are great, looks like you had some pretty party hard nights!

And thirdly the third photo from the bottom, with lots of people in it, is too funny! The guy lying on the floor making the funny face looks so smaaaallll compared to everyone else, he looks like he's been photoshopped in!! Also,what the hell are you drinking? the stuff in your glass is toxic blue!!
