    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

The Right Crew

High school was so convenient when it came to making friends and staying friends throughout every single class you all had together 5 days a week for years.

Not in college.

In college, you have all the power in the world to choose who you interact with. It doesn’t matter if you have a class with someone and they sit next to you and they always ask you for an extra pen. If you don’t want to talk to them outside of the classroom, you don’t have to. You won’t have to sit in the cafeteria with them or see them all day long in your other classes. Your classmates can become blurs in your field of vision and their names can become alphabet soup letters jumbled up in your head. No one will be offended if you don’t want to sit next to them in class every day, or even every other day. You don’t have to wait for them next to their lockers.

You can choose your crew. You can be as selective or inclusive as you wish. You can have a million friends (more like a few thousand, considering our campus population) or you can have just one.

It’s up to you who you surround yourself with and spend time with. Whom you allow to influence you. Whom you influence.

Some of the friends you make in college will stand by your side for the rest of your life.
