Here are the college days. We walked around UF, I laid on benches on grassy lawns, Fel had cool labs, and I got to chase people down for articles. I hung out at her food engineering lab and interviewed every international student there for a feature piece. We disrupted the quiet floors at the Marston Science Library, and every morning she could find me at the same computer in the second to back row. We weren’t riding around together anymore. I had my car that I would commute with and start my mornings with Kidd Kraddick, she rode the bus since she was local. The following are hits of the time that we both listened to, and some we shared despite being in different departments, courses of study and different modes of transportation. The Spanish songs are mine.
The oldies continue 😉
