Today we have “All My Friends” by LCD System. I think that this song is appropriate for today because my younger brother is moving into his dorm at Lawrence University today, in Appleton, Wisconsin. “All My Friends” is an appropriate send-off to college, I think, because of these lyrics:
you spend the first five years trying to get with the plan
and the next five years trying to be with your friends again
In truth, I can’t think of a better way to describe my college experience and the following years. During college, there was so much to do (classes, ultimate, partying, etc.) that life was usually defined by how you were progressing towards graduation and finding a job, i.e. “getting with the plan.” But now that I’ve left, I’ve graduated and found that job, I find that one of the things I look forward to the most is the chance “to be with my friends again.”
So good luck at Lawrence lil’ bro, here’s a song to send you on your way.
