University Life…

is about standing on your own two feet.
Following your dreams.
Learning about life and love.
It’s supposed to be safe.

But sometimes it’s not.

quoth William Shakespeare

O, swear not by the moon!
The inconstant moon,
that monthly changes in her circled orb,
lest that thy love prove
likewise variable.

~ Juliet
