This isn’t a description of the many troubles we had with 101, from the classes to vision 2020 (how did that pan out?) or the roaring leopard that left us with numb thumbs and result anxiety. Rather, this is more of a day to day experience filled with PDA’s, and the occasional trek to female halls all for love. Ah!

How to get over losing a friend you really cared about (P.S Your friend isn’t dead)
