Today is 10 years since I graduated from West Point. The last 10 years feel as though they flew by. I can so clearly remember being back at West Point. But at the same time, being back at school seems like a lifetime ago. I’m always amazed at how it can feel like that.
My four years at West Point were where some of my best memories were made and where some amazing friendships began.
Looking back, life seemed SO easy then. Yes, we had a pretty heavy course-load, extracurricular activities and the occasional room inspection that would take us hours to get ready for (truth be told though, I loved having a spotless room =) ). But, that was really all we had to concern ourselves with. No little ones to look after, no cooking, no bills. We were in college, enjoying our freedom, and making cherished memories with one another.
The best part, for me, was that my girlfriends and I were all together. I was in the same company (and roommates) with my girlfriend, Lauren, for the last three years. I lived with Annie during our freshmen year. But, we were never more than 1/4 mile of each other. Meeting for dinner, tv watching, and girl talk was an almost daily occurrence.
