Captivating and very well told. Enjoyed the read.
Hi!
I'm not a college student, so thankful for that, but I am a Tafe student/working full time/editor for our local community magazine, so I can imagine how you feel

Ahhh... memories. Of my first term in college of another guy - who'd never been away from home - who was in the laundry with me. "Mum never had this trouble!" he complained. I looked up from my loading the washing machine and I felt sure she wouldn't, because there he was trying to iron his socks!
There's no space to list my ow failings, but thanks for triggering that bit of nostalgia.

Well done. The short sentences and paragraphs made the weeks fly by for the reader, but certainly not for the MC :) I really enjoyed this one!
I know you were talking about college and I loved how you described it, the anticipation_ the stress , the late nights , you did a great job! You got it down perfectly!

The cadence of this story fit well with the title. You did a remarkable job of pulling your reader into the toughness of college life.

Oh, honey. You KNOW I've been there - and that I AM there with you, right now. This is SO my Sawa - and so deserving of being INCHES from EC :)
