From the Valentine edition of the Black Kat
What is Love? According to Webster’s Secondary School Dictionary love is “a feeling experienced when one is deeply devoted toward another.” Sure, love is that and more. And here are some attempts by a few Jacket people to express that something more.
Senior-Love is . . . when he surprises you with a kiss.
. . . I haven’t figured it out yet.
. . . Not knowing your name or even the time of day.
Junior-Love is . . . T-R-OU B-L-E.
. . . being hurt.
. . . having your lunch bought by a guy.
. . . when you care for something so much it is almost unbelievable.
