You know you're a lifer when...

  • Three to four years doesn't seem like a long time to invest in a new degree
  • Your freshman roommates are now your professors
  • You know the people that the buildings were named for
  • Dinner conversation consists of first hand knowledge of how the rules have changed in the past decade
  • You wish you could get a t-shirt that reads "I'm from the pre-Radford era"
  • You don't rent out books anymore because they are four or five editions too old
  • You remember when CSR's were filled out by pencil on bubble forms every Monday
  • You can't imagine your life not broken into semesters
  • You've seen the same jokes in the Tantalizing Tidbits at least three times
  • You survived lice fest

Amen.. I survived lice fest.. *giggles* that was a very interesting time. I understand all of what you said.. and the sad part is that I wish I was back there.. though I kinda am glad that I'm not... I dont' know how it would be to be pregnant and go to classes still.. even if it would be grad school for me. :D

Are you trying to depress me or what? I remember lice fest and the Tantalizing Tidbits, too.

Wow! You must be really old! Do you think I'll ever be that old?! ;)

Keep making comments like that and no, you won't live to be that old!

Well, I wasn't around for Lice Fest 99, but do I dare even to comment on this?

With age comes wisdom--and restraint, Noah.
