About The Bloggers

We are a group of (mostly) college students who all graduated from the class of 2011 at William Chrisman High School. We have decided we’re going to stay in touch throughout college/life, as most high school friendships crumble at the sight of a new chapter of life. This is our brave attempt at avoiding this norm. These are our stories of our lives after high school.

    This is not fight club.

    • Derek Neely October 18, 2012 at 5:10 pm #

      Are you challenging me to a fight Kendyl?

  3. Kendyl October 18, 2012 at 11:01 pm #

    No, but if I was I would definitely win.

    • Derek Neely October 19, 2012 at 11:09 pm #

      I was in a basement fight club with cody and a bunch of thugs after school on thursdays for a whole semester in high school, you stand no chance!

    Nick I like how yours says CoMO Missouri as if the MO in CoMO doesn’t mean Missouri.

    Hello all! Just happened to stumble upon your blog and we wanted to let you know what a cool idea you’ve got. Staying in touch with high-school friends is definitely a challenge, and you all have found an excellent solution to the problem. Great posts.

    P.S. Shout out to those of you in Colorado! Hope you’re enjoying it!

  13. Debbie December 9, 2012 at 4:33 pm #

    Hi bloggers!
    Thanks for stopping by the Perpetual Student and giving my latest post a “like.” I love your idea of a group blogging site and your decisions to stay in touch. Some mom advise: Nursing students: stick with it. My daughter is a fairly new nurse and it is an awesome career. Morgan: I have another daughter who is a GeoArchaeology major and loves the combo–consider it maybe? Derek–would have loved to have had the guts to do what you are doing! To all of you-best of luck 🙂

  14. msherice December 9, 2012 at 10:06 pm #

    You’re all awesome! Hope you do keep your friendships intact. God bless!

  15. bneal817 December 9, 2012 at 10:47 pm #

    I graduated from William Chrisman in 2002… didn’t go the college route, though. Hats off to you Derek for chasing your dream and doing what you love. To the rest of you, I would advise you to forget about your career and find what your passionate about, and DO THAT! Don’t wait! Life goes by fast, do what you dream of, and do it right now!

    Blessings to you all. May you find your way, your peace, your joy!

    ~ Ben

    Cool blog idea! Love this. 🙂

  17. Thanks for taking the time to visit over at my blog. I absolutely love your blog concept. Have fun. Study, work and play hard. Laugh a lot. Cheers.

  18. thejourneythatmatters December 10, 2012 at 3:57 pm #

    I think this is an absolutely awesome idea. I barely talk to any of the people I knew in high school. I wish I thought of this back then. I hope it has been working for you and keep up the great work!

  19. Jill of All Trades...Expert of None! December 10, 2012 at 7:43 pm #

    Thanks for stopping by my blog (let’s assume it was a group effort) so that I could discover yours!! What a fantastic idea, I’m hooked! I have twins in their junior years of college, well assuming they graduate on time…which I don’t expect and am perfectly fine with…but you all remind me so much of them! Especially the changing majors theme. DO IT! And do it repeatedly until you find the one you want to stick with for years to come. You are brilliant young minds, and I’m honored to be called your fan. 🙂 Happy Bloggin’ ya’ll!

  34. zoevega December 19, 2012 at 10:14 am #

    Me and my friends are exactly like this, we wanted to remain friends instead on complying to societies ‘you best friends are made at university’. Such an amazing thing to blog about!

  35. Patrice December 19, 2012 at 10:45 pm #

    Great idea on how to keep the friendship strong 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog, Whimsically Yours!

  49. Randel January 14, 2013 at 7:17 pm #

    Good luck staying in touch for a long period of time. I have one friend still who dates back to Junior High School actually. And I have a couple acquaintenances from grad school. So you will have your work cut out for you. The ones you stay closest too are the ones least like you I find but are not judgmental about how you change through life in terms of ideas politics etc.

  50. Cedelle January 14, 2013 at 10:47 pm #

    Ahaha, thanks for the like… errr… Whom ever did so. 😛 But still! It’s a great idea to make a blog to all keep in touch. I’m still somewhat close to my high school friends- and it’s been three years since I graduated. All I can say is this: it gets hard after a while, but don’t let it stop you guys! ^ o^

  52. selfab January 16, 2013 at 5:34 pm #

    Hey, I wanted to say thanks for taking the time to keep up with my little blog. Who-*ever* it is liking my posts, I feel the love! Hah, being that I’m a high school senior with only a few close friends this might not be a bad idea to keep in touch, I’ve got one friend who wants to go to CalArts, another staying on the East Coast, and of course I want to go to Reed.

    Hope you guys keep chrisman2college going!

  53. cottageonstrawberry January 16, 2013 at 5:40 pm #

    Thanks for visiting MaturitasCafe and liking “pick your heros carefully”. My four kids are in college and much in your bios reminds me of them! You might be interested in checking out sarahjoellephotography or mattmorganmusic on FB/youtube/web. I think they are great. PS Cathy, all my blogs go up in English and Spanish, so you might like to practice some Spanish there! Follow your dreams.

  62. runningdiscord January 20, 2013 at 11:46 pm #

    Hi. You liked my latest post, so I wanted to stop by and check out your blog, and I was surprised to see you all went to William Chrisman. I graduated from Park Hill South 2011 and remember playing soccer against you guys back in the good old days when I was on the team. Anyway, I just wanted to share this uncanny coincidence.

  63. thecoffeespoonblog January 21, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

    i love what you lads are doing! i wish this is happening in my life right now. unfortunately, i lost contact with everyone i went to school with. when i was still at school there was this one guy who is always nice to me, then one day i decided to contact him and hopefully get re-acquainted with him but he told me he does not remember me at all. gee, how do you go from being nice to someone to completely not remembering him? oh well…

  68. letterstoreesie January 25, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    Impressive! I am almost 30 years old and my best friends are still from high school! Good luck!

  72. uprofessor January 26, 2013 at 10:53 pm #

    Don’t let college get you down. Try to have good, honest relationships with your professors, especially with the ones who teach the classes that you aren’t doing so well in. As soon as you make some kind of connection with your prof, you’re one grade point higher than when you started. Really. You’re no longer a number and just a name. You’re a person. It’s easy for a prof to assign a bad grade to someone he doesn’t know. It’s difficult for a prof to assign a bad grade to a student about whom he knows something about. DON’T talk to him about your life’s problems. Talk to him about ANYTHING else. That’s called schmoozing. It’s a good life skill to develop.

    Good luck in life.

  73. D.A. Vereen January 30, 2013 at 9:44 pm #

    Thanks for dropping by and liking my blog. I hope that you guys will successfully complete your experiment and remain close even after college. Have fun and don’t grow up too fast!

  74. lifeandtimes2010 February 1, 2013 at 9:44 pm #

    Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. I like what you guys and gals are doing here. And, btw, CO ROCKS. For the guy who gets to snowboard everyday, hug a mtn for me. I miss hiking the 14ers sooooo much!

    I know you’ve heard it a dozen and a half times but this is a really cool idea for a blog. I wish my friends from high school had been this cool, but we took the lame route of staying in touch (aka Facebook). Keep up the posts though;I enjoy some of them. 🙂

  80. pishnguyen February 22, 2013 at 7:57 pm #

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for the “like” on my recent post. (I’m not sure which blogger actually stopped by, but I’m really grateful for the traffic to my site. 🙂 )

    This blog looks really fun! It is a super creative and fun blog idea, and they way you guys keep it going is pretty neat. I’ve read through a few of the posts, and it’s lots of fun reading the different authors. Everyone has a unique “voice”.

    Thanks again for the blog visit!

    Hey guys,

    Thank you for liking my post. I had a sports accident on 15th December 2011 and have been trying to recover since. My spinal injury has been the toughest challenge in my life, and I really want to say thank you for supporting me, it honestly means a lot to me.

    I love how you guys all connect through blogging and keep up to date 🙂

    Your friend,


    • chrisman2college March 12, 2013 at 7:53 pm #

      Thanks Lucas, glad you liked it. I participate in several action sports and I have had my fair share of injuries that didn’t bother me, but spinal injuries legitimately scare me. I am happy to see you are walking again and I hope you have a full recovery.

      • leveluphealth March 16, 2013 at 1:55 pm #

        Hey Derek, yeah injuries suck, but hopefully we come out wiser if not stronger hahha. So how’s Colorado now? Has your view point in life changed? I love the quote under your description. What’s something crazy and fun that has happened there?

      • leveluphealth March 16, 2013 at 2:40 pm #

        Hey again, thank you for supporting me. The writing here is fun, and I feel that we have a connection. I’ll be following you, keep up the great job ☺ Your friend, Lucas


      • chrisman2college March 26, 2013 at 10:50 am #

        Ha, I wish It had been on camera. I just left Colorado last week I re injured my right knee and decided a 100+ days of snowboarding was enough so I came home. As for whats next I plan on working at a marina this summer driving boats around and doing a lot of mountain biking and wakeboarding. Then Next winter I might be going back to Colorado.

    • chrisman2college March 19, 2013 at 10:33 pm #

      Hey Lucas, Colorado is awesome and the six months I have been here have been nothing short of amazing. My view point on life changed last august when I accepted my job here, because I decided that I was going to start doing the things I have always dreamed of doing as soon as possible while I have no responsibilities and am physically able instead of maybe doing them sometime in my future. As far as something crazy that has happened, I triggered a fairly big avalanche a few months ago and snowboarded out of it without it swallowing me, it was scary at the time but now its a great story.

      • leveluphealth March 22, 2013 at 2:58 pm #

        Hahaha an avalanche! Are you crazy! I was an adrenaline junkie too before I got injured. The avalanche must have looked just like the movies. It’s usually in the moments that are the coolest that we wish we had a camera running!

        Are you still in Colorado? What’s next?

        Your friend,

  93. oliviola March 12, 2013 at 6:38 pm #

    Thanks for liking my post on on Sentimental Value! It’s wonderful to discover by Blog this way and what a meaningful idea to keep in touch through blogging together compared to the odd line on Facebook or Twitter. Good luck to all of you and may your friendship last forever. I may be further in life’s journey than you:
    and I can assure that one cannot go through life without friends. 🙂

    Thank you for the “like”on one of my recent posts. I think that the idea of creating a group blog to stay connected is wonderful. I wish my friends and I at MICDS or Wash U. did something like this…but blogging and WordPress did not exist. You guys make me feel so old;) Good luck to all of you.

    This is awesome! Derek– I plan to move out to Colorado after graduation from college and have the same outlook and the quote you used is the way I explain why I am not beginning a full time job upon graduation. As a college athlete, I have the hope to continue playing sports, especially skiing out west. This idea for a blog was a great way to keep in touch and I really enjoyed it. We had to start our blogs for a class in school but I plan to begin another one upon moving out there. Cheers!


  119. stormy1812 April 15, 2013 at 6:07 pm #

    so not sure which of you, maybe all of you, stopped by my blog today – thank you! taking a look here – looks like you all lead very interesting lives and i’ll be interested in following what happens. a few points of interest – i was born and raised in denver, colo., so it’s exciting to hear that derek is out there doing what most coloradans do – recreate. also… as it just so happens, im a UNC graduate. i loved greeley. i have my degree in journalism and mass communications and continue to pay a lil’ bit to that school to help (though being a journalist doesn’t pay much more than enough to pay bills haha). so morgan i wish you the best in greeley! feel free to drop a line if needed. you’re all very young and not everyone knows exactly what they want to do right away but you’ll figure it out as you go along. best of luck to all of you!

    Hey!!! Wow you all have a lot of followers. I am honored that you read and liked one of my posts. Thank you! I am actually from St. Louis, Mo and my sister Sarah goes to Mizzou! I was so excited to read about people from good ole’ Missouri! I am now a North Carolinian but, miss MO so much. I encouraged to see such an inspiring blog full of light. I am happy to be following your journeys now and thank you again for taking a glimpse at mine! It really means a lot.

    Hey guys! Thanks for stopping by my blog. You have an interesting concept going on here. I am still close friends with 2 people I went to grade school with and 2 from high-school. The rest have all drifted away. Or died. School was a long time ago! 🙂

  128. blackbyrd May 31, 2013 at 11:15 pm #

    What a fantastic idea. I’m envious of you guys and gals –– not many of my friends understood my love of blogging when I was in high school, let alone wanting to begin a blog like this with me. I’ve contributed to college friends’ blogs, but it’s not the same as what you guys have here. Keep writing and sharing your adventures!!!

  129. cate b June 1, 2013 at 7:15 am #

    Wonderful idea! My high school buddy and I reconnected on facebook a couple of years ago …… still strong 😀
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and the follow 😀

  130. jjspina June 1, 2013 at 6:37 pm #

    This is a great idea for college buddies to stay in touch. I wish you all well. Strive to be all you can be. You have the world at your fingertips. Make your parents proud of your accomplishments and always be mindful that others are watching what you do. Don’t embarrass yourself. It may jeopardize your chance for a great job one day! This is coming from an older person. I envy your youth. Use it wisely. God bless! I will follow you to make sure you are being good! Only kidding!

    Thanks for the like on My Great Adventures…A Journal. Love what you guys are doing. It’s much easier than reconstructing everything in the year of your 50th reunion as I am doing. Wish all of you the kind of life and adventures I have enjoyed.

  133. Jo - Over the Edge of the Wild June 2, 2013 at 6:43 am #

    Thanks for stopping by and liking our blog post. I love the idea of your blog – it really is so easy to get caught up in life and lose track of your high school friends as the years go by. I hope you manage to keep it up!

  134. cp June 2, 2013 at 9:00 am #

    My son and his six friends from preschool through high school did this…they are now pushing 30; still close friends, as the families are too – all going to their weddings, birthdays etc. all across the county. It is wonderful to have these friendships. Kudos to all of you for recognizing this.

    Thanks for the like on my Shine On Award post. You guys are something. What a neat way to stay glued to one another. Precious! I know [age] 30 sounds jurassic to you but you might get something out of it. Wish I had gotten something like this at my tender age (not necessarily the same testimony) from those who’ve gone before….


    Best…and I am happy to see you thriving here.

    I am so glad that you liked my latest post. Thank you so much for visiting my bog site. I am on your blog site and I want to tell you young people that the way that you have all decided to keep in touch with each other is absouletly fantastic. I wish that I could have finished my college education but there were obstacles in my path at the time and I could not overcome them. I wish you all the best and hope that you will complete your college education and have fun during the learning process. Hats off to all of you. Keep up the blogging. I want you to know that I certainly enjoyed the one video about the young gentleman in the traffic jam being held up by the chicken on the highway. My granddaughter and I had the most enjoyable laugh today ever. Thank you so much for making both of us laugh today!!!

  148. Raiha September 17, 2013 at 9:03 am #

    This is the first uh… ‘communal’ blog I’ve seen in my short career of blogging. It sounds fun and a great way to keep in touch with old friends.

    Reading about the American college experience is very new for me (we’ve all seen the Hollywood high-school movies, although no one tackles college). It sounds WAY different then what us college kids do here in Pakistan. For one, we don’t work or travel. We just study, socialize and devour our parent’s heard-earned money. Should I be sad or happy about that?

    Good luck with all your adventures! And have enough fun for all us sheltered kids too. We’ll read and enjoy with you!

    • chrisman2college September 17, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

      Thanks, you should be happy and sad. I would hate not traveling, but I would have no problem not working.

  149. thatssojacob October 29, 2013 at 1:50 pm #

    Hey bloggers:

    2) Thanks for liking my blog! What did you like about it? Any suggestions for topic? Give me a follow and I’ll follow ya back!

    Ciao for now

    That’s So Jacob
