“Circa 2011. It was a cool summer night in college and I (Eljin) was not performing well in one of my classes so I decided to hit the library to attempt to salvage my grades for the semester. The library was empty and I took one of the unoccupied tables. As I was reading, a student nonchalantly sits down in front of me while carrying a bunch of textbooks. I scanned the entire library and it was empty. This student, with the entire library empty, decided to sit in front of me. As I dropped my textbook to see who it was, my jaw dropped at the sight of the gorgeous lady sitting right in front of me. I didn’t want to let the opportunity slip by, so I devised a plan: I put my hands into my pocket to calm my nerves. I then felt something in my pocket, a plastic box, and said to myself, “This might work.” So I braced myself, took the item out of my pocket and popped the question: “Do you want a TicTac?” She said “Yes,” I took her number, and from there it is all history”
