Describe a distinct moment

Tuesday, September 10: Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.

Its hard to pick one moment when your life takes a turn because I feel like life is always taking quick turns, but the one moment I can think of is maybe when I went to college.  I can clearly remember packing all of my things into my car and my mom's car and driving to the dorms.  I can remember finding where I would be living and meeting my roommates for the first time.  I remember being very nervous and excited.  I think the first few days we all did a lot of group activities with not only our roommates but with everyone in the dorms and it was very different to be completely on my own.

My roommates and I instantly all became friends and it wasn't until the middle of the year when our real personalities came out and we realized we were closer to some people over others.  What I liked most about living in the dorms is there was always something going on and there was always something interesting happening.  Sometimes it was someone running in and crying saying they were dumped or it was someone running in screaming they got asked out on a date, but every time it was always interesting and drama filled lol.  I guess you could say there was never a dull moment, if we were bored next thing you know someone would say lets go swimming and we would be hopping a wall to a local apartment pool or we would decide to race around the dorms in the rain and see who came in first place.  I missed those fun times a lot when I graduated but now I can look back and think it was fun then and I have a different type of fun now, for me life seems to up and down certain periods of time were packed with fun while other periods of time are just average amounts of fun.  I think if life was constantly jam packed with fun and craziness we would get worn out.

Friday, September 6: A story about a time you were very afraid.
Monday, September 9: Take this short personality test and respond to your results. (at the end, find the detailed profile of your personality account - click "click to view" under "You" and "self awareness and personal growth." You can even google your type and find more info on it!)

Bonus points for including a photo from the coffee shop. (I recommend downloading Ommwriter and bringing headphones along!) *if you can't make it to a coffee shop, at least leave your usual space and write someplace new.
Friday, September 27: An anonymous letter to your Facebook friends. Be as snarky as you'd like. (but don't include people's real names.)
Monday, September 30: Share a photo of something old. Maybe something that has personal history for you, that was passed down to you, and that has special meaning to you. Tell us about it and why it's special.

Oh college. I didn't even have the "typical" college experience or live in dorms long, but every fall I get nostalgic for it. There is something so special about that time in your life, and I'm glad for you that you had roommates you got along with well!
