“People don’t know this, but when I’m bored, I call QVC and just talk with the people on the phone. I don’t order anything, but we just have a conversation. And then I hang up. In fact, I have QVC’s number saved. They would say, ‘Hey, can I have your item number?’ and I’ll be like, ‘Sure, you can have it.’ Sometimes there’s people wanting to genuinely talk, and we would talk - I’ve had great conversations before. There was this one dude from Long Island, NY near where I grew up and we were just talking about Long Island and bagels and stuff. I spoke to someone else about relationship problems, because I was going through something - so I called the Q.”

“I really looked up to my grandfather. I didn’t know him until I was six. But he was just a person that I could go to. He always made me laugh and he was just very real with people. He was a very caring man and he didn’t have the easiest life or anything- he had money troubles and his wife died early on. But he always had a smile and always put other people first. He was truly an amazing person. I wanted to keep him by my side all the time, so I put his death date on my side, a constant reminder of someone I look up to and someone who I should be like for the rest of my life.”

“I’ve never felt more at home than with @tupac_d5 . It’s so nice to have a group of people that I connect with on the same level. I didn’t know I was missing this until I got here.” - Celine Miro

“In high school, I was that girl that sang, I was the choir president, I was in musical theater, that was my whole thing. When I got to college, it was a really hard transition because I never do that anymore. My parents really encouraged it, for me to study musical theater… But I don’t know… I don’t know if I made the right decision.  I feel like I lost a sense of my identity, to be honest. I don’t sing that much anymore. I found that the longer I go without singing, the harder it is to get back into it. I get really shy about it, like I host WHIP’s open mics and sang at one or two of them, but that’s it. It used to my whole identity. To have that thing, a strong passion that becomes a characteristic about yourself, and to be so removed from it in college, it’s really weird.”

“I care about a better future. For all people, not just the rich few. I’m a college student - college costs a lot of money, I’m gonna have a lot of student loans. I believe in a future where college can be free for everyone who wants to go to a public college.”

“My grandpa was a photographer.  He wasn’t professional or anything, but he was just always at the family events, and wherever he was going, he was always taking pictures of people. Seeing him do it inspired me to do it. I’m definitely more into portrait photography, it’s helped me come out of my shell a lot. I was super shy and I didn’t really talk to people.”

“I want to explore music through my emotions and my experiences. My original song is about people messing up over people, about feelings getting messed up - someone getting too attached and someone has to break it off to save someone’s feelings from getting hurt… Writing songs is a great way to vent, I can tell you that. There have been a couple of guys this last semester that really messed me up and I feel like it helps me grow up, helps me know my worth. Going through those experiences, it helped me to realize that I shouldn’t feel like this and that I deserve so much more - I’m worth more than I’m putting out.”

“My dad makes the best Mexican food in Texas. During the summer, we visit Abuela Carmen, and she makes the best tacos in Michoacan. I can’t wait to eat the best tacos I’ll ever eat again.”

“I’ve always drawn. My older brother got me into it. He had this big how-to-draw animals book that he always drew from and I started off with that. I really got into Spiderwick Chronicles and illustrations from that when I was really young. But I didn’t take it seriously until I got to high school. My art teachers told me I had some good skills and that I could go to college for this and actually make a living off of this. I take a lot of inspiration from other artists, but I take from my life and draw from my mind mainly.”

“People are so afraid of being a try-hard. Be a try-hard. I sit in the front of all my classes, I go to office hours, I am that kid. Raising my hand, even if I look stupid, I’m gonna answer the question. The more your teachers recognize you, the better it is. You can go to your professor and be like ‘Hey, I’m having this problem,’ or ‘I don’t understand this,’ and they’re more likely to actually want to help you and form a relationship with you. And for the love of God, make friends in your classes. I started this semester with at least one person I knew in every single class. You understand how easy that is to branch off and make study groups? Make group chats. Exchange social media. First day, first week, second week, off the bat, try. You can’t do this alone. College is not something we were meant to do alone.”

“We’ve been together just over five years. We’ve known each other since kindergarten, but I finally grew the balls to ask her out in eighth grade, in the middle of social studies class. With notes. That’s how we spoke that whole first year, through notes and she kept them.”
