You didn’t grow up with money, far from it. Your family worked hard for everything they had and you worked equally hard hoping to get an academic or athletic scholarship to go to college to make a better life for yourself. Unfortunately, while you were good at both, you didn’t excel at either. The prospects for college looked bleak.
Then last Christmas your grandmother bought everyone in the family lottery tickets, and as they say on that old show, “Next thing you know, ol’ Jed’s a millionaire.” Of course, it didn’t seem like it was going to last as your dad thought he was some kind of investing genius and put nearly all the money into a couple of companies with “tech” or “ware” in the name. Then it turned out your dad actually was some kind of investing genius as those companies were soon bought out by a major search engine corporation, and suddenly you had to hire people to count your money.
You keep thinking the whole thing is going to fall apart at any moment, and so while the money is here you’re going to college like you wanted. ETU was the only school to even look at you seriously when you didn’t have money, so despite being able to go anywhere you wanted it was the only place for you.
You wanted to keep a low profile and your money secret, but your new roommate blabbed it all over campus claiming you two were best friends. Still, it was kind of cool when the fraternity party invitations started arriving, though slightly less so when you realized they were addressed to both of you.
