Alana Thompson will live with her boyfriend Dralin Carswell in college – UnlistedNews

We recently learned a lot about Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s college plans.

The recent high school graduate will be leaving Georgia in search of a more pleasant climate. And he has a scholarship!

However, she will not travel alone.

Alana, 17, revealed that she plans to take her boyfriend Dralin Carswell with her. They are going to live together!

During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, which you can watch below, Alana Thompson updated the world on her plans.

As we previously reported, he will be attending Regis University. There, she will be studying for

That means he’s moving to Denver, Colorado.

During the interview, Alana shared that she plans to live “off campus,” even for her freshman year.

That’s probably not ideal for most people.

Even if an apartment is more comfortable, on-campus housing provides people with built-in social support and helps them immerse themselves in the university environment and culture.

However, Alana Thompson, who has been a reality TV personality since childhood, is not “most people.”

He explained that he will live off campus “for security reasons.”

And, Alana revealed, “because Dralin” is going with her to Denver.

“I think he’s more excited about moving than I am,” Alana said during the interview.

The 17-year-old added that she has been dating Dralin for “three” years.

Alana explained that Dralin, 21, has seen even less of the world than she has.

“He has been in the exact same city [in Georgia] where I live now for my entire life,” Alana explained.

“And,” she reasoned, “I think he’s ready to experience something new, too.”

Going to college is an ideal time to experience something new. Even if you don’t attend college yourself.

Like many who enter college, Alana admitted that she felt very “nervous.”

In particular, he will be moving “to the other side of the country” to go to college.

Still, more than anything, Alana said she’s “excited” about this next big step in her life.

Plus, she knows the stakes are high. She and Dralin will be moving in together for the first time.

“I think it’s going to be good for us, honestly,” Alana speculated.

She went on to comment, “And I mean, I think it will be fun.”

Alana shared that she and Dralin “have definitely talked about the future.”

But he assured his fans that he is in no rush to talk about marriage.

“I can not say that [he’s the one] because I don’t know what life holds,” Alana wisely explained.

“Any day now, anything can happen, but I mean, I hope,” Alana expressed.

She added that she and Dralin will have a lot to “figure out for the long haul.”

For example, Alana revealed, “I don’t want kids, but he wants kids.” Yes, if you don’t agree with that, getting married and expecting the other to accept is nonsense.

Alana’s mother and sister (and guardian) were there.

Lauryn commented that “you don’t really know someone until you move in with someone.” TRUE!

June then noted, “I told her I’d make or break her and Dralin.” That seems likely!

Obviously, some may be wondering about the legalities. Dralin’s age difference with Alana is too much for them to have been classmates in high school, even in theory. It is controversial.

We must keep in mind that Alana is only a few weeks away from her 18th birthday. Making this a moot point.

Also, some quick research tells us that the age of consent in Colorado is 17 years old. What was controversial three years ago will soon be very normal age difference for two young adults.
