I Wish I Could Go Back to College..

5 days until I end my 14 month hiatus from real life. So many emotions are bubbling inside of me, and I can’t really define in one sentence how it feels. I am excited, sad, nervous, intimidated, challenged… well, you get the picture.

I’m at Resorts World now working on some last minute work related things with Allan and this song suddenly came up. Funny, I remember one life talk session with Virlynn when we ended up singing this.

KATE MONSTER:
I wish I could go back to college.
Life was so simple back then.

NICKY:
What would I give to go back and live in a dorm with a meal plan again!

PRINCETON:
I wish I could go back to college.
In college you know who you are.
You sit in the quad, and think, “Oh my God!
I am totally gonna go far!”

ALL:
How do I go back to college?
I don’t know who I am anymore!

PRINCETON:
I wanna go back to my room and find a message in dry-erase pen on the door!
Ohhh…
I wish I could just drop a class…

NICKY:
Or get into a play…

KATE MONSTER:
Or change my major…

PRINCETON:
Or fuck my T.A.

ALL:
I need an academic advisor to point the way!
We could be…
Sitting in the computer lab,
4 A.M. before the final paper is due,
Cursing the world ’cause I didn’t start sooner,
And seeing the rest of the class there, too!

PRINCETON:
I wish I could go back to college!

ALL:
How do I go back to college?!
AHHHH…

PRINCETON:
I wish I had taken more pictures.

NICKY:
But if I were to go back to college,
Think what a loser I’d be-
I’d walk through the quad,
And think “Oh my God…”

ALL:
“These kids are so much younger than me.”

I think this about sums it all up — the excitement, the nervousness… everything. How appropriate too, this coming from one of my favorite musicals, Avenue Q, which is where I got to know Kate Monster. πŸ™‚
