“Do you miss college?” The question came out of nowhere. I was at work, and out of the blue one of my coworkers popped the question on me while I was assisting with a computer problem. Do I miss college? “Yeah, I miss college; but I don’t miss the lectures”, I answered. I’m laying in bed, the morning after, and I remember the question. Do I miss college? Yeah, I really do. My college years were a turning point in my life. It was where I discovered I had some value as a person. It was where I discovered I CAN . It was where I discovered that someone else (other than family) saw something desirable in me. It was where my wife and I found a spark, and where the ensuing fire took hold. Do I miss college? Yeah, I really do, but would I go back? No. There’s too much that I’ve discovered since that I would have to give up. So no, I wouldn’t go back.
