Goodbye XCreek

Posted on: August 7, 2008

Former Cross inhabitants:  Allibon, Tony, Lawrence, and Me
I miss them =( 

About two weeks ago, my roommates and I moved out of our beautiful apartment.  It was “home” to many, many people across the OC.  Our door was always open… literally… I don’t think I owned a key to my own place.  Allibon lived there the longest, but for as long as she lived in Xcreek, other people felt welcome there too.  I’ll never forget last summer…. Ohhh… last summer.  For those of you who were around then, you know what I’m talking about.  Smarter people probably would’ve tried their best to stay away from Cross with all the festivities goin on pretty much every second of both day and night.  What were we thinking?!  Of all the places I’ve ever lived in Irvine, Cross was the only place I could call my home, though.  It’s probably because of whatever was going on in my crazy, chaotic life… but it was also the comfort that my roommates and friends were able to provide me… just through their presence.  I loved it.  Xcreek, you are already missed.

You know you’ve been to Xcreek when you’ve:

-been humped by napoleon
-seen arlene poke her head out to ask for quiet late at night
-heard tony and allibon fight and/or do it
