Looking Back and Moving On | Aqua Tank and Coral Clutch

Hello my lovelies!

I was recently talking with a friend who told me about the last time she's been back to her alma mater. When I told her I hadn't been back to American University since graduation (in 2012), she was shocked. 

"What?!" she asked. "But you still live close by! What's stopping you from going back?" Well, several things. I didn't have that many friends younger than me that I could visit nor was I that into our sports teams (not that they're bad, mind you, but I'm more into European soccer and pro football. Our school didn't have a football team unfortunately). And finally, I realized that I'm quite apathetic when it comes to change. 

I moved a lot growing up and I guess I got into the habit of thinking change is inevitable. It's nice to reminisce about the past but I think it could be a deterrence from moving forward with your life. I'm not exactly one to look back because the idea of what could happen in the future excites me more than what's already been done. It may make me come off as a bit cold but the thing is, I like thinking that possibilities are endless because the past can't be changed. AU has a special place in my heart but it's also in my past.

Mind you, I don't think it's a bad idea to go back to your old school and say hello to your friends and professors - in fact I think it's a wonderful idea. I, personally, am not really in much of a hurry to visit though. But again, that's just me. 

How do you feel about visiting your alma mater?
