i spent the day in baltimore looking at johns hopkins with sammy.
at one point in the day she met up with a friend who is currently a freshman there so i was on my own for about an hour. i went looking for coffee and found the cafeteria. it was pouring, so i went in. suddenly i was transported back to freshman year. i remember those awkward few days when you didn't really have any friends so you just sort of stood there. i saw a bit of that around the cafeteria. people sitting by themselves, half reading their blackberry half wondering if they're really eating alone.
i remember vividly the first two friends i made. jeffrey and carol. i think it was carol that came up to me and asked me if i wanted to go to disney world.
of course i said yes...it wasn't like i had anything else to do.
