When I think back on this past year, one of the first things that comes to mind are my many late-night chats with Joe. Sometimes we talk about noble things: God, justice, the meaning of life. Other times, we just talk about shit.
Blurry, poorly lit and red-tinted as they are, I'm pretty happy that I got photos of one of our sessions. (How I'll miss these chats next year when he's no longer around to confide in and laugh with at all hours of the night!) Put simply, our talks have, in many ways, encapsulated the essence of college. Formal dorm programs and on-campus events are great for socializing and mingling, but 3 a.m. conversations with close friends are where the real magic of college life lies.
