The One Where I Participate In 10 On Tuesday (#10)

Go visit Chelsea for more!

1. Where did you go to college? & 2. What did you study?
I am currently on my 4th college. Decisive much? Since I have studied something different at every school I decided to combine the two questions.
My freshman year I went to Northwestern College in St Paul, MN where I studied Psychology.
My sophomore year I went to Minnesota State Community & Technology College (MSCTC) in Fergus Falls, MN (aka the local community college where I SWORE I would never go) and graduated with an AA in Liberal Arts.
{insert several years where I "took a break"}
I took one class through Capella University (the one that is always popping up in your sidebar) for a Business degree. I quickly convinced myself of the error of my ways (I am SO much more an English person).
My junior and hopefully senior year is being spent doing online classes through Montana State University - Billings where I am studying Mass Communications. This lovely school has gotten the most loyalty out of me since I have been enrolled in its hallowed halls for the past year and a half. Funny that I have never stepped on campus, don't know how to find the campus, and only have a vague sense of our mascot (Yellowjackets I think?).
3. Was college really all that it was cracked up to be?
No. No, no, no. My first year I struggled a lot with some paralyzing insecurities and did not get out much or make many friends. My second year actually was great because I shared an apartment with my best friend and my other two best friends were also in town so we got together weekly for Perkins and Gilmore Girls. That was a wonderful year - except for the 50 hours a week I worked at Taco Johns/The Jazzy Fox Bistro. My other two experiences have been a little less than college like.

4. How far were you from home?
Freshman year I was 2 1/2 hours from home (without a car). Luckily there were several of us from the same church so I always knew who to talk to to get a ride home. The second year I was 20 minutes from home and the other years I am literally in my home.

5. Did you have the same roomate all four years?
Obvs not. Freshman year I had two roommates I got placed with randomly - one of them is still one of my dearest friends. Then I lived with my best friend (who is still my best friend today!). Since then I've been rooming with Miss Millie and now my wonderful husband.

6. Where did you order food from at 2am?
There was only one pizza place that would deliver to NWC (Papa Johns) and I don't think anything in Fergus is open at 2:00 besides Perkins and they don't deliver. And there REALLY wasn't anything open in Ekalaka at 2:00. Now there are most definitely places open at 2:00 here in Anchorage, but ummm ... well I'm an old married woman and I am sleeping by 10:00.

7. Did you date in college or were you tied down?
Baahahahahaha. Bahhhahahahaha. Dating schmating is what I say. Except for Luke of course. Cause technically I was doing school while dating and now married to him.

8. Funniest drunk college moment?
True Confessions with Rachel: I did not have any alcohol until my honeymoon when I had a sip of wine and found it to be disgusting. I have now tried a couple more sips of wine and a couple of sips of beer and have not found anything I care for. And I'm ok with that.

9. Did you make it to class on time?
For the most part I was one of those people who showed up way early. Mostly because I wasn't exactly life of the party and didn't have any friends to hang out with between classes so I was always early.

10. What was your favorite class in college?
My sophomore year I took a 20th Century American History class and I loved it. I had the professor for back to back classes and he was a really great lecturer and he loved what he was teaching.
