Andy's time at Centennial State had been... uneventful, to put it lightly. If you wanted to be honest, it was outright boring; the most he'd done was hang out with his friends from high school, as the only friend he'd made since his time here had been Grace. He'd had bigger plans for college-- he wanted to live exactly as he'd seen in inaccurate, fictional depictions in movies and TV. And while he was finally aware that things didn't happen that way in college, he knew that there was something more interesting than his current lifestyle. Surely.
Spring semester ended without fanfare and soon the summer semester was rushing in before he knew it, and while he originally intended to take a break, he figured it'd be boring to sit by himself all day anyway. Might as well do something productive with his time, even if he hated himself for getting up so early in the mornings for a shit class. Regardless, he put up and shut up, though his routine was hardly any different than it'd been the previous semester. In fact, if possible, it was even more boring.
He'd gotten into the routine of staying up way too late playing video games and sleeping just for a few hours before his class, and afterwards he'd finally crash for longer. Which was sort of shitty for his social life, too, as his roommates were usually out and about by the time he finally awoke. Yet he also had no interest in fixing it, as he was so exhausted with everything by this point that he figured it wasn't worth it. On this particular day he was sluggish, trudging through the courtyard after his last class and dreaming of his bed back at his apartment. He was hardly paying any attention to what was in front of him, though, so it came as no real surprise when he stumbled head-on into another person.
"Shit, sorry," he said, perking up for the moment as his eyes widened. "I was-- uh-- shit. I'm sorry." As he noticed that the person he ran into was a girl-- a very pretty one, at that-- he became even more tongue-tied, his mouth opening and closing as he tried to think of some sort of explanation.
