I am wearing the same exact black North Face jacket that every other student has at the University of Michigan. Is that why I decided to come to this school? Because everyone else was doing it? I had so many options. I had every intention of getting away after. After high school I wanted to start over, a clean break. I wanted to be a new person and go to a school where no one knew me and I didn’t know them. But instead I did the exact opposite.
