Iowa State, Will You Be My Valentine?
Ahh.. It’s Valentines Day, the day of love!
Love.. Love is the reason I am asking Iowa State University to be my Valentine this year. You might be saying to yourself, “But Peter, Iowa State is just a place.. an inanimate object, so how can it be your Valentine?” To that I say.. It just can be, OKAY?! I don’t mean “love” as in wanting to marry Iowa State, come on people. I’m just really glad that I chose to go to school here, because Iowa State and Ames are so easy to fall in love with!
*I am going to steal a condensed version of an idea my sister used to tell her boyfriend (at the time) all the reasons she loves him, and the same idea my now brother-in-law used to propose to my sister! It is Valentines Day after all, so why not go full romantic and share some reasons I love Iowa State?! 🙂 Normally a full deck of 52 cards is used for this, but that might get a little long to read! So in the V-Day spirit I will only use the ‘heart’ cards out of the deck! Clever, I know :)*
My Beloved Iowa State,
I know I have only been going here for a year and a half, but for me it was love at first site from the moment I stepped onto your campus for the very first time. I think it’s time I let you know why I love you..
Good news, everyone! Iowa State agreed to be my Valentine!! 🙂
In all seriousness though, I am so happy that I decided to go to Iowa State. Iowa State truly is “mine” because I’ve been able to create my own adventure here and do the things I enjoy! There are so many other things I could add to this list of things I love about Iowa State. I hope this has brought a smile to your face and provided a chuckle!
Have a great Valentine’s Day!!! 🙂
