Weeks later you meet up with him at a party and think, “Should I go for it?” Chances are you both don’t realize he’s your TA. You guys end up hooking up and you try to add him on Facebook. (Side note: when I asked one of my TAs they said they aren’t allowed to accept request from their students. So don’t be upset).   READ MORE

I am also taking another class through Campus Rec that meets another two days a week, so I have my motivation built right into my class schedule! READ MORE
