Our Story, Part One

Saturday, December 6, 2008

I've been thinking about doing this for several months, but I just haven't gotten around to it. Shawn has been on my mind a lot lately, since I'll be visiting him soon. So here is our story.

It all began in August 2005. I had just started my freshman year of college. Actually, classes hasn't started yet, but I had moved in to my dorm room and met my roommate and participated in all the welcome week activities with her. Day three at college we decided to check out a restaurant on campus called Hampstead's. Being brand new freshmen, we had never eaten there, but we had heard that it was good. We ordered our food and found a table. Not long after we sat down, this guy walked over to our table and said, "I don't have anywhere to sit, and you guys look interesting. Can I sit with y'all?" He told us that his name was Shawn and that he was a junior biology major. The three of us spent the next two and half hours talking. I don't even remember what we talked about, but I do remember being surprised that so much time had passed.

When my roommate and I were leaving the restaurant, I remember thinking, "Wow, people sure are nice at this school. I definitely made the right choice when I picked my college." There weren't any sparks, and it definitely wasn't love at first sight. I thought he was nice and then I forgot about him. But it wasn't long before we met each other again...
