08.29.14- APU (the college John & Alyssa went to) was having its welcome orientation weekend for incoming freshmen students. Alyssa and her mom were walking over to the bus stop to take the trolley, a shuttle that would take people from one campus to the other, and there was John sitting on the trolley stop. He turned around and offered Alyssa and her mom a seat, but there were so many tables vacant that it clearly wasn't needed. This guy was obviously just needing an excuse to talk to Alyssa. They spent the whole day together, awkward freshmen college students just trying to make friends. & as the school year begun John and Alyssa had English class together and as they say, the rest is history! the story behind this photo is that Alyssa's mom wanted to take a photo, but Alyssa was embarrassed and didn't want to take it, but her mom insisted & John, the sweet guy that he is, said it was okay. so here is a photo of the day that we met, a huge thank you to momma Lim!
