I set off alone to explore the unknown. I had just completed college for the second time and now I had four months to wait for the graduation and my entitlement to use the said degree to enhance my fortunes. I had spent a year living on campus, large amounts of the time had been spent in my room studying and writing, and the day when I finally had to leave what had become home had been fast approaching.
