Put Your Behind in the Past

I'm more of a pragmatic person than a sentimental person, or so I prefer to think of myself. But yesterday I went over to BYU campus to pick something up, and I was surprised at how nostalgic I felt. I hadn't walked around campus in the five years since I graduated, and it was kind of like a punch in the stomach. With no fist anywhere to be seen, I was left with the conclusion that it was, in fact, nostalgia.

And why not? Many of the decisions that have led me to this point in my life were made there. There I met and married Katie (well, we weren't married on campus or anything, but I was in school). Sam was born 6 months before I graduated, and I chose my career there. I made some great friends and had a lot of fun.

What makes you nostalgic?
