My college classes started on Tuesday. My English professor asked us to write down our names, phone numbers, and an interesting fact. She then collected the notecards and called students up to the front of the room in groups of five. The rest of the class had to correctly match the interesting fact with the student. I wrote down, "I play the lottery in hopes of one day winning enough to pay my way through school." They didn't guess me correctly. They matched me with "I love going out and shopping."
When I turned eighteen a year ago, it wasn't about being able to buy cigarettes or go clubbing. I wanted to buy my first lottery ticket. And yes, I did get card. I play for fun, but never lose hope of winning big.
