I was the student who was scared of going into the library… To me, the library was a place for super smart people who already had an assigned spot, and the last thing I wanted to do was sit in the wrong seat and someone act like I’m trying to dethrone them or something. But I finally made my way in there, and of course regretted not going sooner. – Lila Thomas
