With auditions and try-outs nearly out of the way, and the juniors beginning to panic about their SATs, Benji was finally taking the time to start thinking seriously about college. He knew that almost all of his friends were looking at New York, and Benji had always thought that he would follow suite, be it for college or a photography internship - but, now, he wasn't so sure. He'd spoken with Ben about Dartmouth a few times now, and the older boy was doing a really good job of selling the school. But with so much else riding on New York, he didn't want to make any rash decisions without checking things out for himself - and it was only fair. Assignments were already beginning to pile up, and wanting to get his college plans settled and out of the way before life got too hectic, Benji had decided that there was no time like the present to set that in motion.
He wasn't sure if Ben would be free at the moment, but he reached for his phone anyway, figuring that he could leave a message. Getting up, he looked over at Ron to let him know that he was going to go make a call, and then slipped out of the room. It took going outside to find the privacy he wanted - he wasn't ready to admit to his friends that he was looking at Dartmouth, nor was he particularly excited about what Raf's reaction to that would be - and he settled onto one of the benches just outside of Johnson before pulling up Ben's contact information. He couldn't help smiling to himself a little as he looked at the other boy's photo, but the moment passed, and he shook his head before hitting 'call' and lifting the phone to his ear.
