I took this picture for the Campus Crawl – Back to School Hunt Blogger Challenge that Fashion Feed of SL and Avenue are running. Basically what you’re supposed to do is complete the hunt and then use at least one item from the hunt in your picture that tells a back to school story from your school years. I really didn’t know how to incorporate a back to school story with the stuff that I got from the hunt. I did take a picture of Berry just walking on the sim in that dress but then I remembered an old story from my university days so I went back and threw ManBerry into the mix. That took me forever to do because SL has just been hating me these days but I finally managed to get a picture.

So here’s my back to school story. In my first year of university, I lived in an apartment that was close by. However even though I had a car, I would still walk over because parking was just insane at certain times of the day. So I used to walk about a mile there and back. After a while I noticed this guy that walked the same way as me. I would see him a couple of times a week only though because we had different schedules. One day he just walked right up behind me and asked, “how do you walk in heels everyday?” I laughed and told him I was used to it and I didn’t always wear heels, he probably just caught me on the days that I did. Then he asked me why I had two bags because I would always have a purse and then my bag with books. I basically just said because I’m weird and I like to keep them separate. He laughed and then grabbed my book bag and carried it for me till we got there. Every time after that, whenever I saw him, he would just grab my book bag and we would chat as we walked. It was really sweet. He was genuinely nice and kind of adorably dorky, which I love in a guy. During the second semester though I moved back home, so I drove from then on and unfortunately never saw him again. The only thing I knew about him was his first name and what he was studying and then of course random tidbits of his daily life that we would share. The campus was so big and since he was a couple of years ahead of me and studying something completely different, we just never ran into each other again.

I don’t know why but sometimes I’ll think about him and the 20 minutes we got to chat and spend with each other a couple of times a week. I wonder what happened with him and where he is now. Do you have people like that from your past that you knew very briefly but have cute memories of? Do you ever think about them and wonder what happened? Am I just weird?

I tried to dress ManBerry up a bit dorky, but I don’t really have any dorky clothes for him. I did put glasses on him so hey that counts, a little bit! LOL

The hunt goes on till the 9th so you still have time to go down and pick up the stuff. The hunt items are all priced at L$1 and I noticed a few of them are free. The dress I’m wearing was free and my bag that ManBerry is holding for me was L$1 in the hunt. There is a free outfit for men as well from Legal Insanity. You can check out this page for some hints that helped me find the stuff faster and also some pictures of some of the stuff available. Although I do admit I did have a hard time finding a few of the things so I gave up but I did pick up majority of the items.

    That’s absolutely beyond precious.
    I bet you were the highlight of his week-
    And he still remembers you ! 🙂

  • Aaaahhh I love this story…now I ‘m wondering what happened to him too! We should never forget though that dorks now rule the world and he probably set up a big highly successful a while back and now lives in tax exile somewhere hot…

  • The stories we’ll tell the youngun’s someday <3 Manberry looks totally dorkalicious!

  • anderian sugarplum

    That hunt seemed incredibly hard to me. I had to give up as it gave me an incredible headache lol. Lovely story. I bet he still thinks about you too. I think peeps meet for a reason, even if it’s only for a lil while. 🙂

  • Thanks guys. Something inside me also hopes that he still thinks about me too, that would be nice. 😛 I hope you guys were able to do at least some of the hunt!

  • Hey Berry, seems you made a little booboo in the shoe credits. I know Siddean makes a lot of fabulous stuff, but I don’t think she made the Gos Boutique shoes.

  • Adanaya, lol wow, thank you so much! Talk about massive mistake hahaha. I corrected, really appreciate you letting me know.
