Humans of Nipissing U- Cass Battiston

“Over Christmas break, I went to a party with my friends at home and this guy started talking to me. And I started talking about school to him and later that night, my friend pulled me aside and she was like, ‘You realize that guy was hitting on you and you literally just talked to him about your thesis.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, so?’. She’s like, ‘Cass, you’re not gonna get a boyfriend like that.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t want a boyfriend!’ So that’s my life. School. [chuckles]. Karl Marx is my boyfriend.”
