Some people say high school is their best time, and although high school was fun, but college was my favorite time. College…was just fun. I can’t explain it in the time that I have right now (since bed time is in 10 minutes) but I knew I grew the most during college. I met the most amazing people, the friends that I still keep in touch with and I know a lot of things that happened in college made me who I am today (after all those failing grades? Hoo boy, who’s not going to learn from that? :P). I will always look back at college with fond memories, the way I would probably do if I had a chance to go on Disney vacations.
College was also the time I was in the most spiritual high. College was the peak of my YFC years and I can’t deny the fact that I got to know God better during my college years. Back then it felt like I would never ever leave that lifestyle, but it’s amazing how a new environment can change one person. And it’s not something I am proud of.
I miss college for the fact that it was easier to stick to God’s side back then. The struggles were simpler (well, as I think about it now :P), and…well, there’s an amazing support group that was always present at the tambayan. Right now…everything’s just…difficult and different.
I miss college.
I’d like to quote Avalon on this song, First Love, which I really loved back in high school:
I used to be the one
Who would long to hear your voice
A child who sought to win his Father’s heart
But as I carried on
Life got a hold on me
Now here I am, a child so far from home
Tell me when did I lose my first love?
Where did the fire and passion go?
Burn in me Your holy fire
Give me back my lost desire
And restore in me the love I felt for You.
Can I remember how it felt
When they looked into my face
And they saw the love of Jesus in my eyes
When I look back on my life
And question where I’ve been
Can I really say I’ve done my best for you?
I miss who I used to be in college.
I miss You.
