It made me think of the group I found myself a part of when I was a freshman in college: myself and my roommate Matt, Lora and Jacki, Josh, Steve, Eric, Shannon, and Hernan. What a crew. I don't think I let myself fully be a part of the group, and I regret that now. Still, we had a lot of good times, and I miss them all (some more than others, of course). I haven't seen most of them since I transferred to Bowling Green from Wright State after my second year there. Lora and Matt and I do e-mail occasionally, and even talk about trying to get together at some point, but it's hard to do with all of us being at different corners of the state.
In the meantime, tonight I'll be visting the Wood County Public Library to pick out a challenged book to read in commemoration of Banned Books Week. I hope everyone out there is doing the same. I was going to just re-read something I've read before (perhaps Catcher in the Rye, or any of the Harry Potter books), but I think it would be truer to the spirit of the week to read something I haven't read before.
