All crafted from the salty beach air, the boys of 1921F have an unsung bond that unifies them. To others, we're just those smelly beach kids.
Brought together by the beauty that is JMU, they quickly realized their potential as a powerhouse quartet built of strong morals, brawn, and brains, fueled by a strict stir-fry diet.
Though all spawned from various backgrounds they quickly found common ground of self-betterment, humor, and a quest to live everyday to the max.
There's never a dull moment in 1921F and there is never a chance that any of us will let this party that is life stop even for a second.
Tom and Schmit move into 1921F barley escaping the horrors of the dorms. Meanwhile David Venner is waist deep in The Citadel's B.S. reconstructing faces while Hiller spends his leisure time cleaning up after a 5 year old roommate.
While walking through the Arboretum, Tom and Hiller spot what would become the first addition to the 1921 fortress. From that day forth, Stella the Stump has graced our deck and caught many throwing knives. At about this time D.V. made the brilliant choice to transfer to JMU and change the balance of the universe forever.
After months of working away at our summer jobs the boys arrive one by one to what would be the collective home to the four of us over the next two years. With full hearts, wallets, and an unquenchable thirst for a good time, we embarked on our junior year.
Quickly after our arrival we discovered an insatiable desire to perfect our houses' aesthetic. From that point on, whether it was painting walls, drawing murals, or pissing away our security deposit we never ceased to turn our apartment into a ever expanding piece of art.
Once we had settled ourselves in and given our ordinary Sunchase apartment a proper makeover, it was time to throw the first "banger" if you will. Tom's 80's themed 21st will go down in the archives of history as the day our neighbors first got a taste of what we were capable of.
A house classic fueled by Hiller and Venner's ideas and Tom's drawings is born and quickly becomes a staple and major talking point of the house.
Each week ticks by filled with hard studies, vigorous exercise, and a properly fueled diet. You gotta work hard to play hard.
Within one week of each other Hiller, Venner, and Schmit all turned 21 years old. This ushered in a new era for the boys of 1921.
It had been a long winter. The boys were tired having been in educational hibernation for several months. We awoke one morning to several feet of thick powder. Rather than turning to a comfy bed and Netflix, we charged the U-Park hill with an old surfboard. There was no other way to spend our day.
After a frigid winter the sun began poking out ushering in warm weather, an atmosphere where beach raised kids can truly thrive. While Schmit held down the fort from the safety of his room, Hiller, Venner, and Tom took to nature's new growth but spending everyday studying and throwing the football at the pool.
Degrees don't earn themselves and this house wont keep itself afloat. Venner, Hiller, and Tom all embark on a Maymester filled with back porch sittin', gainers into the pool, and being summer social butterflies.
Though Hiller, D.V., and Tom wont graduate until December 2017, the boys embark on one last year as an unstoppable foursome. Schmit will be missed.
It just wouldn't seem right to tell the story of our final year as unified house until we've completed this chapter right? I know the suspense will kill you, but just know that somewhere out there the boys of 1921F are hard charging the world and leaving the weak hearted behind, for there are no days off.
