It only got worse when I walked into the classroom, & was greeted by a professor who looked like she had been placed there in 1973 & left to fend for herself, as well.
(This next part is where it might start sounding like a love story. #soulmates #noshame)
Now, let me be clear. This was 2006 - Approximately 458 freshman girls on campus fit that description . But, in that moment, I felt compelled to be her friend. We freshmen had to stick together. Plus, I really liked her hair.
"Oooo, I love this movie!"
"Omg, me too! Almost as much as I love this band..."
"AH! I LOVE THAT BAND!"
"Really? The first song on the album reminds me of my boyfriend..."
"SHUT UP IT REMINDS ME OF MY BOYFRIEND."
Or something very pathetically close to that.
& guys, that's how my life with Amelia began.
Oh, & p.s. then-boyfriends are both now-husbands. In case you were wondering.
