I meant generic in the sense of sending it off to all my safeties generic. Apologize for the confusion, didn't mean to imply the content was "generic" in terms of usual PS.

No worries - that was a compliment disguised as a critique.


Thank you! You are too kind.

Off topic but it's nice to be in 2 iterations of this cycle process. Meet a lot more interesting people. Although you guys are getting ahead.

Also because we're more intelligent, charismatic, and attractive.

B-ball aight that's one thing. But DUrham in general has nothing going on. THa'ts why the school sponsors so many students activities.

Maybe they are going through the earlier "holds" after seeing the whole pool. I was 10/11.

Good luck guys!
