We met up with Allison & Aaron to practice a few techniques I learned at a workshop.  We had a really great time romping through Corkscrew swamp!  I am super-excited about posting these, but our interent is going too slow, so I’ll just post one for now:

Italian Memories May 27, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Deb @ 10:06 am

During my Junior year in college, I had the awesome opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy. I spent 4 months in Firenze – touring the Italian countryside and learning all about the history of the architecture there. It was one of the times I can say I grew the most as a person. I learned how to navigate around Europe by myself, and I learned how to survive using a language I hardly knew. Best of all, I really got into photography during that time. I took over 2000 pictures while I was there, and was stupid enough to get them developed AND put them in binders – so now I have tons of binders of Italian photos in storage. I just found a few of these pictures and wanted to share my experience with you all.

Good Friends, Good Times May 15, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Deb @ 10:08 am

Matt and I had the awesome opportunity to drive up to Sarasota this Tuesday for an impromptu meet up with two of my friends from college. It was the first time I had seen them in 4 or 5 years (who’s counting?). We sat around and reminisced about old times while catching up on the past few years. Life has been good – very good – to me. I sometimes forget how much happened in those four years at college. What an awesome, awesome time it was to be alive. I learned so much about life. And I made so many good friends who I will be friends with forever. During our conversations it felt like no time had passed at all – almost as if we were sitting on campus and enjoying time as usual – unaware about how much time has passed.

If I can give any advice to those who have not yet entered college, this would be it: GO FOR IT. And go far away – somewhere you have never been or never will be in the future. Travel abroad if you get the opportunity. Force yourself to live outside your comfort zone. Travel on a whim. Experience life – all the academics will be forgotten, but what you learn about life will stay with you forever. And most of all, invest in relationships. This is VITAL. You will forget most of what you learn, but you will never, ever forget those friends. Five years later I have never regretted staying up late or skipping studying to talk with friends. I do, however, regret the times I skipped being with friends so I could go study.

So if I can leave you with one thought from today, it is this: Invest in Relationships. And don’t do it for personal gain. You will never regret it.
