I was reminiscing about my first year of college during my ride around Reeds Lake this morning. It’s a question I often come back to: How have people changed since college? Or to be more universal, how have people changed since maturing into adulthood?

I thought it was such a good way to track development that I was determined to keep up with it each year. Of course, that fell by the wayside, and my original list is lost to the 1s and 0s because my aunt then wiped the hard drive on my old laptop.
