My Reunion Weekend at Wake

As you all know, I graduated Wake Forest in May of last year, but it was less than a happy closure to my undergraduate career.

I had a couple of days off from law school, so I wanted to go back to my favorite place, Wake Forest (almost exactly a year after the world came to a halt) and see and/or surprise some friends that were still on campus.

Here’s a quick list of things I got to do and see:

I studied in ZSR

I saw the Demon Deacon mascot

I walked around campus

I sat on the upper quad and studied

I went to a baseball game

I went to the Porch

I went to Cugino downtown

I went to Sofa Bar

I went for a walk in Reynolda

We had Dough Joe’s Donuts

I walked 7 miles around Salem Lake

We went to Quarry Park

I surprised some friends

I did homework

I had cookout


It was a very wholesome weekend, and I spent the entire weekend smiling and laughing. I was so happy I got to go and pretend to be a student one last time. I definitely feel a bit more closure than I did last year. Last time I was at Wake was to pick up my belongings that were moved out of my dorm room... I was so angry and hurt and upset. Now, my last time on campus as a “student” was fun and happy! It reminded me of all the good memories I had on campus and helped me push the painful memories into the back of my head.

It was the best trip ever and I can’t wait to see all my other friends at graduation this May or November!
