I have been feeling sentimental for about the last week or so, asking myself: How come once I’ve finally figured it all out, I’m leaving?
It took me two weeks to figure out who my best friends were, two months to realize that getting Cs on tests were okay, two years to figure out my major (unsurprisingly correlated with when I met Janet Blank-Libra) and now four years to grasp that I’m ready for the next chapter of my life.
Over the course of my senior year, I have had the great, great pleasure of being your Editor in Chief.
Helping you, the student body, read the truth about what’s going on. Thank you readers.
Working with an absolutely amazing staff that has consistently put up with my snarkiness, spacing Nazism and brief freak-out moments that happen somewhere around 3:30 a.m. Thank you, staff.
The wonderful writers! Brooke, please allow this exclamation mark, because our writers that have consistently shown up mean the world to me. You deal with our crazy, inside jokes and hair-brained story ideas that sometime get explained by a simple shrug. Thank you, writers.
Meeting with Jeffrey Miller every week to review my mistakes and make anew, planning the news and sharing our stories and news tips. Thanks Jeffrey.
Janet, you are an amazing professor and adviser. I talk with my friends and am shocked to find how they find their advisers “scary.” I look at them and think, “Then why would you choose them as an adviser?” I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else. You deal with my scatter brain and doubts about whether I am actually going to graduate and send me many, many emails subject lined “You” and I am always intrigued about what they are going to say. Thank you Janet.
And thanks to my beautiful roommates who deal with me coming home at 5 a.m. (Or sometimes coming home when they are leaving to work out in the morning, it has happened.) I’m also grateful that they are no longer shocked that I am sleeping the majority of my Thursdays. Thank you, roommates.
This year has been a rollercoaster of news, one that I have been grateful for. It’s been a rollercoaster for my stress level, my sleeping habits, my extracurricular activities and I wouldn’t trade any of it.
Peace and blessings,
