New Friends

If I've gotten my dates right, today is the launch of University of Toronto's online alumni community, of which this blog is a part! Which is cool.

Although I am UofT class of 2007, and have therefore been an alumnae (is that the right noun? I never took Latin) for less time than I was a student, I am already profoundly nostalgic. No matter how much you like your grown-up job, there's no seminar-style debate, no library borrowing-privileges, no deadline-extension pink forms.

Worse, even though I can't see it, I *know* that UofT campus is May-time gorgeous right now, and somewhere on that big field in King's College Circle (why did I never learn the name of that field?) someone is under a tree sorta reading a book, and sorta watching some other someones playing Frisbee. It's enough to make you forget all about seminar-snark, dead printer cartriges at the last minute, and low-caliber coffee.

This weekend is Spring Reunion, which will take me back to campus to read, to mingle, and to embrace my nostalgic side. See you there?

Oh the sweetness that could send me flying

You are an alumna. Alumnae is plural. My only skill is useful at last!
