Going to college wasn’t different either, and all I wanted was to get my degree as fast as possible and get my little behind out of the campus. But the students in these stunning campuses would rather spend their entire lives inside these premises.
Adolescence introduces a zillion changes to our lives, we are no longer children, and not even adults yet.
