College Days Once Again

I went to sleep at 4:30am last night. Why? Because I was talking with my friend until 3:30am in her dorm room. We talked about boys, girls, work, horses, geography, friends, the Future... all under the pretense of studying together. I swear I tried, but I missed having company so much I couldn't resist; the Real World can be a lonely place. While we were talking, I was trying hard not to get squished off the side of her tiny twin-sized bed and fall through the open second story window beside it. All the while I was thinking how this was college again, to the last detail, and how much I miss it. Real life is about money and things; college life is about people. It was the first time I'd felt alive in a while and I'm sad to know that I'm just setting myself up for disappointment.
