Ten on Tuesday (43)

We have a college themed week here on Ten on Tuesday. The questions were provided by Ashley from Ashley’s Antics. Go visit her and thank her for her questions. Also, if you are participating, please link back to Roots & Rings.

*If you plan on participating next week, read below for a note.

1. Where did you go to college?
I went to The University of Texas in the great city of Austin, Texas. If you’d like to read about how I made my college decision, you can read this post.

2. What did you study?
I got my degree in Marketing, which was in the Business School. I was going to do Advertising but decided I’d rather have the business background. In reality, I should have done journalism like I’d originally thought about doing while I was in college. But God had a plan and it all worked out according to His purpose. Who knows what would have been different if I’d chosen another major.

3. Was college really all that it was cracked up to be?
Yes. I loved college. It was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I never had to study in high school but always got good grades. That was not the case in college. Even when I studied hard, I didn’t do very well. But it was fun. I had a ton of great friends and I was always busy doing things I enjoyed.

4. How far were you from home?
A little over three hours.

5. Did you have the same roommate all four years?
Nope. I did potluck my freshman year and lived with a girl I didn’t know. Sophomore year I lived with two girls. And then junior and senior year I lived with one of the girls from sophomore year.

6. Where did you order food from at 2am?
I didn’t ever order food. Freshman year we’d eat at Taco Cabana late at night. After that, we’d eat ice cream or something like that. I didn’t eat a ton my first few years of college, I was really skinny. At the end of college, I ate more and gained some weight and snacked a lot.

7. Did you date in college or were you tied down?
I dated a few guys but nothing serious. I met Stephen my junior year in college and I was “tied down” about a week into that relationship. I knew it was THE relationship.

8. Funniest drunk college moment?
Oh goodness, I have no idea. There were probably several my first two years. Probably none that I need to share. I do remember one unfortunate incident when we were at a party at an apartment complex and one of my friends walked over to another building to go get another friend of ours. She accidentally went to the 2nd floor instead of the 3rd floor… after much door banging to get her to open the door, the people in the 2nd floor apartment called the cops. It wasn’t funny at all at the time, but it’s pretty hilarious now.

9. Did you make it to class on time?
If I went to class, I was on time. I think being late is extremely disrespectful.

10. What was your favorite class in college?
My upper division marketing classes were really interesting. I also loved Nonverbal Communication. It was fascinating. I took Children’s Literature and I really enjoyed that too. I loved that we had to read books like Charlotte’s Web and The Giver. Great books!

Your turn! Here’s Mr. Linky.

*Next week’s Ten on Tuesday will be a bit more complicated. All of your answers will be photos. Because I know this may involve some house cleaning or additional planning, the questions will be posted by Friday. I’ll remind you on Friday. I think it’ll be fun so I hope you all participate.
