Very intense first summer out, to be 18 years old and

At the end of four years' time, at graduation,

- Peter Jurasik

Interesting enough, we had a reunion of the 12 of us who graduated,

need for the approval of others, be careful.
If you find yourself unwilling to

is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.
