I remember as a freshman in college, I was nervous about beginning the semester, however, I was even more terrified about moving away from you. The time had come for me to leave your lovely city. You've been a huge part of my life for 18 years. We’ve had our ups and downs, but I am so glad that I had the chance to grow up with you. Here are a few things that I miss about you.
1. Taco Casa
The biggest cactus in town. I could spend a whole day devoting my article to Taca Casa, and it still would not express my love for it. No sweet tea, price, or tradition, could compare to Taco Casa. I always love coming home to you and stopping at this 'spicy little spot.'
2. T-Town or Title Town
Your name will always be historical, however, T-Town and Title Town hold an even greater value. You've only won 16 National Championships.....just saying.
There really isn’t ‘nothing like them no where.’ Whenever I come home, Dreamland is always my first stop. Nothing beats their ribs and homemade banana pudding.
4. Bama Theatre
In my life, I have had the opportunity to perform at your historical Bama theatre on multiple occasions. To me, this is one of my most special memories with you. The Bama holds many memories for me as a theatre kid and as a performer. The theatre itself is very historical and filled with beautiful architecture
5. Denny Chimes
You are already home to one of the most beautiful campuses in the deep south, but the Quad accents the universities true beauty. On a spring or fall day, the quad’s beauty shines like gold. The bells of Denny Chimes also add a sweet melody every hour.
6. The Lakes and Rivers
There’s nothing like a Saturday afternoon spent on your lakes and rivers. I remember childhood memories fishing with my dad on the Black Warrior River and Lake Tuscaloosa. At sunrise and sunset, their beauty is beyond words.
7. And last, but not least, Roll Tide
I miss you everyday Tuscaloosa, and I'm constantly counting down the days until I see you again.
