The age of functional internet only meant one thing: online social platforms.

Forget about,, and You can interact with REAL people. ONLINE. AND THE BEST PART? You can be whoever you want to be. Look however you want to be. And BE whoever you want to be.



(Sounds a little creepy right?)

This was the original age of catfishing. The original age of social networking, competition, strange online relationships, and all other kinds of dynamics.

This was the age of begging your parents for a $50 membership to get all the fancy schmancy access to rare items for your look and your virtual house.

THIS was the emergence of avatar online games.

So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is.

But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
