A lot of people hide in corners. Scared people. Skeptics. Nervous people. Introverts. 

And most importantly, freshmen college students.

See the people hiding in the corners? They want to be known too. They want to be loved too. They’re not in a corner because they want to be but because they don’t know where else to go.

I sat in the corner of the cafeteria the other day simply because I needed to get some work done… and there was nobody else to sit with. A girl sat at the table beside me. She was clearly alone. And clearly a freshman. 

I wanted to continue working, but I knew I should talk to her, invite her to sit with me. What I thought would be a 30-minute meal by myself turned into 2 1/2 hours of conversation. 

And it was so worth it.
