Part of the 150 word drabble challenge, “Confessions Within A Picture”, that can be found on the page entitled “The Confessions in Pictures” under the menu.
It’s amazing how little one really knows about a place. I have been attending my school for a year and a half. I thought I knew the ins and outs of my college town.
The quest for a popsicle changed that idea.
My friend and I decided to go find local “hole-in-the-wall” restaurants and divulge in their food. One day after lunch, we decided on going to a popsicle shop that had over 50 flavors.
Suddenly, we found ourselves in an area that individuals consider “midtown”.
It was beautiful.
I was so used to eating at the commercial part of town that I truly overlooked this gem. I was comfortable. I was so comfortable I did not want to venture out.
It is honestly amazing what you miss out on when you stick with familiarity.
My message? Go venture out with friends. You have four years. Why miss something beautiful?
