Today, we have something I always wonder “what if” about and what I would do if the world was ending tomorrow. These are things I’ve actually given a lot of thought to.
The thing I always wonder “what if” about is if I went to Duke or Alabama. There was a brief time when I really considered it, but I knew I didn’t want to leave home. However, things would probably be really different. First off, I would have been at both during a championship (or 3 if it were Bama). That would have been the coolest thing ever, but I wouldn’t have the same people in my life. I wouldn’t be best friends with Kat and Whitney. I wouldn’t be dating Michael. I really wonder if I would have dated a basketball or football player like I always thought I would. Kyle Singler and Greg McElroy would have been there at the same time as me…that would have been cool.
Unfortunately, I wouldn’t be as close with my parents probably. This bothers me now but I wouldn’t have known any difference then. I would have definitely joined a sorority if I went to Bama and probably at Duke. You can guarantee that I would have lived in Krzyzewskiville at Duke. My mom always said there was no way she was sending me to Durham to live in a tent, but you can’t pass that up if you go there and love the team like I do.
I wonder if I would have had the same majors. I might have still done communications, but I don’t think I would have done sociology. That was something I stumbled upon because I was bored and wanted more classes (I didn’t really like my “friends” then). I have a feeling that I could have been swayed into education by my would-be sisters if I went to Bama. At Duke, I would have had to be an English major. I looked when I was considering it, and there’s no journalism there. I could have done statistics there, but I don’t know what I would have done with it. I don’t really know how different I would have been if I went to one of those schools, but I’m a die-hard fan of both anyway.
Now, if tomorrow were the last day, I know exactly what I would do. I would get drunk and eat all kinds of food. I might go on a massive shopping spree, but it’s more likely that we’d have a big bonfire party in our backyard and spend it with the people we like while listening to country music. I’d probably get a tattoo. Okay, I’d probably get a couple. There would definitely be a hummingbird and a Browning deer…probably the O for Orioles. It would be really chill, but really fun. I would just want to have a good time with people I care about. Nothing fancy or outrageous.
Finally is my picture. Well, I was supposed to do a photo with long exposure, but I can’t (or don’t know how) to do that with my iPhone. Instead, I was walking to the gym when I saw the trees after the rain storm. (We have really pretty pink flower trees on campus.) A lot of the flowers had fallen off because of the rain, and it was just really pretty so I took a picture of that.
