All the right reasons (part four)

People in my high school were aghast at the idea of me skipping my senior year.

But really, I had been to three proms already, and what fun are ditch day and other assorted activities when you don't like your friends?

I headed off to college without a single doubt.

Until I got there.

And then I was terrified.

I didn't know a single person, I couldn't find my way across campus, and what the heck was I doing going away to college when I was only 16 years old???

But I went to the dorm meet and greet and got invited to play volleyball. And there I met a boy that we'll call JC. And a boy that we'll call JT. Apparently I had met them both at the orientation during summer, but in the fog of terror and overwhelmedness in which I had gone through that weekend, I had only vague memories of cute college boys.

But now I was actually at college, and living in a dorm with cute college boys, and suddenly college was fun and not scary.

And obviously, I was there for all the right reasons.

You know, boys and fun.

But soon I turned 17 and I matured and added another reason to be at college.

Oh yes. Football! I really miss college football. It's not the same at 28 as it was at 21. The kids block my view.
