Oh, Mississippi State, How I Miss You

It's been far too long.


December makes two years that I have been an alumna of Mississippi State University, but as classes are beginning I am super sad reflecting on all of the incredible memories I made in my two and a half years as a student. Whether you're a Freshman or a Senior- you need to embrace your time as a student.

It goes by fast and before you know it you'll be in the "real world".

I never thought that I would ever look back and miss being in school. I was told I would miss high school and I have been out for seven years now and have never thought that once, but I cannot say the same for college.

I miss college. I miss the friends. I miss the adventures, the football, and the extracurricular activities.

Some of the best memories that I have include sitting around in my apartment filled with friends making memories that are completely irreplaceable. We have all gone our separate ways now and some of them I no longer associate with, but they made my time at Mississippi State the absolute best.

Time flies y'all. It's important not to take time for granted and to fully embrace every single day.

I'll never get to be involved in the clubs and organizations that I loved at MSU again, but I can also say I don't regret the time that I had knowing that I took advantage of it all.

I do love no longer stressing about a test or a 15-page research paper, but getting to celebrate by going to Research Park or having an ice cream party with some of my best friends made it all worth it afterward.

I now live two hours from Starkville and anywhere from two to six hours from some of the people I love most. I cannot have a get together last minute because I am stressed and overwhelmed with live and that's one thing that I miss most.

Mississippi State brought me some of the best memories and major growth in my life. I learned independence and freedom, but also how to seek Christ more and more in everything that I do.

Life is good now and I am at a new place filled with new memories, but it'll never be the same feeling that Mississippi State brought.

I look forward to my next visit as an alumni cheering on my bulldogs with the newest students, but while you can take me out of Starkville you can never take the bulldog out of me.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
