  1. Pulled an all nighter (for homework) a couple weeks ago. and a fun movie watching one at the end of last semester. Definitely a must-do to consider yourself a collegiate level student.


  2. That was hilarious! I especially loved all of the candid shots at the beginning.

    So so true- all of these. I would add a drive out to middle of Oregon for a meteor shower- the stars are incredible! A wonderful memory to be shared with friends!!!
