This weekend, I dusted off old external hard drives from college. It's been two years since I left Columbia, Missouri, and going down memory lane makes me have all the feelings. Columbia is a special place. Here's a blast from the past, starting with the apartment I called home for more than three years, above.
Parker's 21st, before beers at Flat Branch
Schurz Hall, my dorm freshman year, by Parker
Ninth Street after a storm
Juanita Kwarteng downtown in the snow, on one of the few days Mizzou closed for weather
Rebecca Fels in the Ellis Library stacks
Friends at Pinar's pancake breakfast
Gwen, my cat for a semester while house-sitting for Jackie Bell
Mizzou Magazine co-workers who became great friends
Climbing to the top of Memorial Union with my girl Mary Fama
Nothing more beautiful than a Quad snowfall
That one time I spent $500 at the University bookstore on books.
