    Did you rush BYX? I've been debating lately on inquiring, but I have a part-time job at the Auburn Airport (since I'm an Airport Management Major) and worried about not having the time for it.

    The last four years of my life have been filled with more adventure, ups and downs, laughs, tears, crazy nights, and wonderful memories than I could have ever imagined. I came in as an intimidated and unsure 18 year old and Iím leaving as a 21 year old young man who in my humble opinion, has grown up and learned much more from outside the classroom than in it (Insert OU joke here).

    Itís truly almost impossible to comprehend how fast the last four years of my life have flown by, especially the last two. I partied a lot and definitely got side tracked my freshman and some of my sophomore year. I think being sheltered for such a long time by two awesome, wonderful, loving but strict parents had built up this internal drive to let loose, and I definitely did for the first year and a half or so. And I donít regret it at all, because I made lots of mistakes and lots of memories that helped shape who I am today. But during this time, mainly a good chunk of my sophomore year, Iím convinced I went through a bout of depression. I wasnít making good grades, I wasnít happy with who I was hanging out with, and I wasnít happy with who I was. Coming home once or twice a month was much more appealing to me than staying at school, and that shouldnít be the case.

    I ended up rushing a Christian fraternity in the fall of my junior year, and while Iím sure some of you on here may be unconvinced , itís really helped change me and mold me into a better man. Some of the guys in it will end up being in my wedding some day, and itís helped bring me closer to the Lord than Iíve ever been. And trust me; I am nowhere near content with where I am,but I've gotten better. But these last two years have been what college should have always been about, for me anyway: A re-focusing on my grades, road trips, new friendships, getting plugged into a local church, accountability, an incredible girlfriend, date parties, and still some awesome nights out on the town. Basically still having fun, but in a better, more efficient way I guess?

    But Iím super excited for my future and what it holds. Iím still going to live in Norman with three of my best friends who will be finishing up school. God willing and if things work out like I hope, my part-time job with a certain professional sports team in the area may turn into a full-time one. But there is no doubt I am going to miss the HELL out of being a college student. I remember like it was yesterday being dropped off by my parents and seeing my dad cry for the first time in my life. And now nearly four years later, just a couple of days removed from shaking the dean's hand, it still hasn't sunk in yet that I am a University of Oklahoma alum. But I'm sure it will as friends move on and being in the real world hits me square in the face.

    Anyway, sorry for the long post. Just wanted to share some thoughts and opinions. College sure was a fun ride though. Boomer Sooner.

    Congrats brah. Now who's the babe 4th from the left. 3rd from the right.

    Yes I did. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to PM me. It was by far the best decision I made in college.

    Is that the residual stench from the Longhorns after the arse whoopins they have endured at the hands of the Sooners the last two years?

    It was good to see Yankee and family last night. Our little dragons grow up so fast. What a great family they have a lot to be proud of.

    Come back and visit more often.

    Little Yankee looked good last night at OLB. He is a hitter.
