Despite that gossip column slip up over the summer, his fall semester thus far had been nothing short of awesome as fuck. To some extent he'd expected that; with an outlook of a good football season, things were even better than they normally were around campus. Combine that with being a senior, Kappa president, and taking mostly easy credits to round out his degree, he was in for a pretty awesome semester here at CSU.
That isn't to say he was doing nothing; no, football practice took up a good bit of his time, even more so now that they were predicted to do well. The few weeks of August prior to the semester starting had been a hell of its own, considering how fucking hot it was combined with all day physical exertion. While he attended Kappa parties, certainly, he usually refrained from alcohol and passed out upstairs before things got too crazy. In fact, despite being set up to be one of the coolest guys on campus, he didn't have much time to explore that.
Other than during the weekdays, of course, when classes were in session and he wasn't otherwise preoccupied with football practice or downing as much food as possible or sleep. In those cases there were people all around him, patting his back and asking a million questions and otherwise inflating his ego. It was as if everyone on the fucking campus was his friend now, which was actually pretty awesome at the end of the day, even if he wasn't always able to reap the rewards (or sleep with the girls, as he didn't have time for that shit either).
Sometimes it all got a little too overwhelming, though, as he just didn't have many moments to himself. When he got out of practice he went straight to the Kappa house, where a few drunk brothers were usually trying to prod him into joining them. He'd hang out and socialize-- he felt like he had to considering his presidency-- and by the time he had privacy all he wanted to do was sleep. It was pretty cool being a campus celebrity (clearly that got to his head), but occasionally he just wanted to kick it in peace, alright?
So in some attempt at getting back into the "flow" of things like a normal college student, he decided to eat at the cafeteria. For the most part he'd only gotten a few high-fives and greetings and whatever else, so it was looking to be a much better decision than going back to Kappa for lunch or visiting the student center. Honestly during the school year the "cooler" kids didn't really visit the cafeteria unless they were absolutely out of money, so this suited him just fine.
He considered sitting alone, if only because he wanted the privacy, but he knew some irritating Kappa wannabe would join him halfway through. His eyes scanned the cafeteria for someone familiar-- he spotted quite a few, actually, including a Kappa brother or two-- before settling on exactly who he wanted to sit with. A smirk made its way to his features as he settled into the seat in front of her, raising his eyebrows. "Well what do you know. Haven't seen you in a while, old friend."
