Ahh... The days of the mini-fridge

As a wet behind the ears freshman in 1996, I think the idea of having my own refridgerator was among the more appealling aspects of going off to college. How crazy is that? Going from home, where food always magically appeared in the cabinets and fridge, to having to buy the stuff seemed very grown up to me at the time. I thought back to those times Tuesday night while grocery shopping. I miss that kid's naivete every now and then. If buying his own groceries was a big thing, I wonder if he'd recognize himself 10 years later. On that thought, would I recognize the 2016 version of me today? Change is scary -- especially when you don't see it coming. But imagine where we'd be without it...
