Moments of Gold and Flashes of Light

April 22nd, 2011 cmcurr11

I think we have all known each other long enough for me to finally tell you that I am obsessed with 80’s power ballads. “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” by Celine Dion is a personal favorite, and has been since an inside joke originated about it in high school.

Anyway, who remembers this?

Ah, the short, blondish/brownish hair (I refuse to label it)…yes, this is the photo from my first year of blogging (and, actually, the first photo of me at Holy Cross. That’s actually a lie – the first photo of me at Holy Cross is me moving into my dorm room and crying. True story.). Or this? Anyone remember the time when Ashley and Katie mixed up their hair dye? Apparently, that’s a really popular blog entry post.

Or when all the girls of Hanselman 3 made a menorah with Sarah’s face in the middle?

Or when a huge snowstorm hit during my Latin final and I almost didn’t make it home for Christmas break?

What’s wonderful about these four photos is that they occurred all during my first semester of freshman year, and these four photos don’t even begin to cover the memories that I made during that single semester. I was going through some of my old photos from college – some of them are hilarious, most of them are embarrassing, but all of them are wonderful and remind me of the amazing times that I’ve had here on the Hill.

So, here’s my plan: in addition to keeping you all in the loop about my life and how I’m preparing for graduation (which is in 34 days. WAIT WHAT), I’m going to make at least one post a week with old photos. I plan to do them chronologically, but I might end up having a couple dedicated to certain subjects (i.e., ballroom – trust me, there are some good ones -, campus ministry, the seasons at Holy Cross, etc). This is going to be just as much fun for me as it is for you. Hopefully you’ll be able to relive some of the great Colleen moments (such as me throwing away my ID card accidentally and then rummaging through the trash for the next half hour. Oh. Wait. I never posted about that? Ehhmm…). Think of me embarrassing myself as a way to thank you all for reading this blog for the past four years.

    If you would like for more embarrassing photos, your mother and I would be glad to help contribute.

    I think that I have enough from the past four years. Thanks for the offer, though! Always such a wonderful father…
