Ahh... Farmville

Friday, February 21, 2014

I visited my college yesterday after talking to quite a few friends from college this past week. It has made me miss my little college town. I don't know that many people there anymore, but I still miss it. I'm hoping John and I will get to go back up there mid-April to the huge Spring Weekend since that's where we met nearly 2 years ago. Plus we got engaged on campus nearly a year ago!

I may be a little weird, but I always wonder what it looks like around where people live. Am I the only one to do that? Okay, I admit I'm weird sometimes. But anyway, since I'm being nostalgic about my little college town, I figured I could show you around my 4 year home of sweet Farmville.

This was my home for 4 years of my life. I made so many great memories around this town and the campus I hate to just let them go around untold in my memory. So here are some of the places around town that stand out to me a little more.

The Rotunda is one of the oldest buildings at Longwood and will always hold a special place in my heart from all of the wonderful Ambassador pictures, my favorite professor and hanging out with friends.

I'm sure y'all are wondering why a rock beside a tree would be one of my favorite places around Farmville and the campus. One Friday I was feeling a little sad so I happened to find this secluded rock and tree. I sat down to just calm down a little bit and cheer myself up before going back to my room. From then on, this rock became my sanctuary for whenever I needed alone time.

Every few years, Longwood gets new artwork around our campus. Some of them are very unique (my way of saying I don't like them) and some of them are actually pretty cool. One of my favorites is the robot. I also love it because John and I spent an hour hanging around it trying to get a geocache without too many people wondering what we were doing.

Last but definitely not least is my favorite place on campus. I always thought this area was very beautiful with the fountain. I liked to sit around here when I was early to a class or meeting friends, but this fountain also has more meaning since John got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife right in front of it. It will always hold a special place in my heart.

I hope you've enjoyed the small tour of my favorite places around Farmville/Longwood community.

Do you have favorite places around your town?
