Fresh.

Monday/Wednesday/Friday mornings I walk to school. (Tuesday/Thursday I drive to insure quicker access to Drew) It just so happens that from where we live and where campus is, I have the opportunity to walk through the dorms.
It is usually my favorite part of the walk. Often alarm clocks are heard going off as I approach and pass the buildings- which mean either the dorm is empty, or there are some heavy-sleeping freshmen inside. Freshmen girls emerge from the buildings with perfect ringlets in their hair, pounds of makeup, TOMS or UGGS gracing their feet, and enough perfume to make my nose hairs curl. 
The morning conversation is always humorous to listen to. Topics include writing on people’s cars, staying up late to finish homework, and my most favorite, using enough NyQuil to get a buzz. Cool. I started to cut through a few buildings and take a different route a few weeks ago. And I am ever so happy that I did. A white board, propped in the window of a particular building has a different saying written out every day when I walk by. What a little treat... things like...
You can’t be late until you show up.
Friends help you move… real friends help you move bodies.
Energizer Bunny arrested — charged with battery.
Whoever said nothing was impossible, has obviously never tried slamming a revolving door.
Stealing ideas from one is plagarism, but stealing ideas from many is research.
If you choke a smurf, what color does it turn?
If the grass is greener on the other side, you can bet the water bill is higher.

 *The President Obama surfing bobblehead also adds some nice ambiance.

that is the funniest thing i've seen! thanks for posting that...it cracked me up! Man, I wished we still lived in Provo. We were reminiscing the other day, and this totally brought back memories of when I, too, had to walk through the dorms to get to school. :)

YES! We used to live at Wymount and I loved walking through the dorms to campus. Plus I could observe the progress of DT getting torn down, which also tore out my heart.

Perfect description of the Freshman girls, and I LOVE whoever lives in the window with the whiteboard and the Obama bobblehead.
