It is my favorite number. I deemed it so long ago when I realized it was the only number which had the same number of letters as itself. Meaning, there are four letters in the word "four". And no, "to" doesn't count.
It is also the number of years I have made Anderson my home.
The number of autumns I have loved with the help of the golden-red valley.
The number of times (well, times two semesters) I have eagerly awaited to see who would be in my classes.
The number of campus housings I have lived in.
The number of campus mailboxes I have had.
The number of winters I neglected to go sledding down the library hill.
The number of days I have left to be here.
