towards greatness
and its a crying

needs fixed and I’m afraid
I just wont accept
anything less.

They asked things like “Where are you from?” and “What is your major?” and “If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?” Researchers asked the students beforehand to make an effort to learn each other’s names during…
