The month of May has me thinking about high school graduation. I wonder, if I could go back (aka Henry DeTamble in Time Traveler’s Wife) what advice would I give my teenage self as I set off for college. Here are a few things I came up with, let me know what advice you would give yourself.
College Ace: Do not drink anything red out of a cooler or bathtub.
Avoid guys who were really popular in high school.
Being hungover or wasted is not something to brag about. If you hear a guy doing it, he is lame. If you find yourself doing it, you have become lame.
Most people at your university will not care if you are in a sorority. Try and meet them – they are probably cooler than you.

Sunday 3/28. 2pm.
It started out innocently enough. Yesterday, preparing for a nice Sunday afternoon spring run, was suddenly struck with the overwhelming urge to hear “Lady Marmalade” by Christina Aguilera. After discovering that you cannot download the single (so annoying – do not want to spend $12 to get a bunch of songs by Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor), decided to rummage through high school mixes to try to find it.
90 minutes later…the best BHS c/o ’01 mix to ever be created was created. Haven’t run like that since wearing soffee shorts around the track (probably shaking a clipboard and bossing everyone around). Enjoy!!
ps. If anyone is wondering if elaney still remembers every word of Hope (the stripper’s) rap in Perfect Gentleman, check!
pps. Feel free to add more!
