Before leaving Austin, Brett and I wanted to take a walk and take in the amazing spring-like weather. Instead of heading to Zilker or another park, I took Brett to the UT campus so we could combine our exercise with a little stroll down Memory Lane.
We started off on the east side of campus, the touristy part. We walked around the stadium toward the LBJ Library, a section of the 40 Acres that I visited more when I was attending high school conferences than I ever did as a UT student.
Then we headed west to the main part of campus. It's funny how those leaf-covered sidewalks still smell like "college." We strolled past several academic buildings that brought back memories of professors, long lectures, pull-up desktops, spirals, blue books and scantrons.
We also walked by the Environmental Science Building where I worked in the Nutrition Clinic for a couple of years.
(Apparently it's undergoing some renovation, which is a good thing. I bet it won't smell like the old ESB when they're finished with it!)
We also crossed the South Mall, taking in the view of the Capitol and, of course, our beloved Tower.
Brett was sweet to indulge my sentimental side, and with the humidity and hills, our walk turned into quite a workout!
