UCLA Confessions Bingo

Casey Bradford / Daily Bruin

In the words of Usher, “These are my confessionsssss…..”

Every time I was in U.C.L.A. I was with my ex-girlfriend
Every time you called I told you,
“Baby I’m studying.” (No!)
I was out doing my dirt (Oh!)
Wasn’t thinkin’ ’bout you gettin’ hurt
(I) was hand in hand in the Ackerman Union like man
Not givin’ a damn who spots me on Bruin Walk
So gone (I know)
So wrong (just listen)

Have anything else you want to confess ? Comment below or tweet us @dbmojo.
