Home By The Sea: Hampton University Homecoming 2019

I haven’t been to my Alma Mater in over 10 years. Between working and traveling to Pinterest inspired vacation destinations, I just didn’t have the time. To top it off, it seemed quite unnecessary to visit a community that now seemed foreign to me. 
What could I possibly hope to gain from attending homecoming at Hampton University, my Home By the Sea? 

Little did I know that an impromptu text message from my friend to attend homecoming this year would create such fond memories of my favorite girl’s trip to date.

It’s funny how you forget the importance of college after you’ve graduated. You’re in the big leagues now and your day to day no longer consists of classes, the student center, exams, frat parties and tons of free time. 

You’re working a 9-5, you have a boss, you’re paying bills, there’s no spring or winter break and you can’t just not go to work because you were out partying the night before without calling in. This is adulting.

However, before I became a full blown adult, I was a Hamptonian. I met some of the most amazing people here and made best friends that are like sisters to me. I was a young adult that had to fend for myself and make smart choices because I was on scholarship. 

I laughed, I cried, I partied and I slept while living and loving all that college had to offer. 

Being able to attend homecoming spur of the moment with sisters who helped make four years away from family feel like home was more than I could have asked or hoped for. This trip was full of laughter, singing, dancing, fellowship and tons of memories. 

The pictures you see in this post don’t even compare to the good times had while on this mini vacation. I was so happy to have been able to attend homecoming this year and though spontaneity isn’t really my thing, I’m embracing going with the flow in this thing called life and just living in the moment. 

Did you attend your Alma Maters homecoming this year? And if so share your thoughts below.
