Thursday Thoughts: We showed our English friends around our old college (University as they say) today! I can’t believe I’ve been out of here for so many years already, slooooow down time, please! While we walked around campus, I felt so thankful for my time at UT. Little ol’ me came to college, never having done her laundry before and unsure of what a balanced diet looked like (helloo freshman 15lbs lol…more like sophomore 17lbs).
Apparently, college culture is pretty different here than in the U.K… Among many differences, they found it interesting how we are so👏🏽school👏🏽spirited👏🏽. From 100,000 people sporting events to wearing our school colors often to fiercely throwing up our hand sign and shouting “hook ‘em horns!” – we are VERY proud students/alumni. I’m not sure why we are more intense about college spirit than the English. But when I look back on the four years I had here, the amount of growth I experienced and the deep friendships I made are what motivate my ridiculous, loud, & proud school spirit. I love it. Hook ‘em 🤘🏽 #thehonestShruth
