School Is Out

>> Monday, June 8, 2009

Where have we been? What have we been up to? Good question; let us fill you in.

The semester has been done for a little over two weeks now. The first year of college has gone as quickly as it came. I’ve traveled from one end of the state to the other. I’ve eaten out so much that it’s hard to remember the taste of “home cooked”. I’ve slept on couches, backseats, buses, and everywhere in between. I’ve moved back home and said good bye to countless friends. Friends I won’t see for the summer, friends I won’t see in a year, or some that I’ll probably never see again.

I don’t think I can describe this year and do it justice. I was once told that if you don’t know what to write, it’s best to quote someone else. If you can’t top it, borrow it and go out strong. I think my friend Mr. John Snell said it best…

Memories of the 10th FLoor

I love this place, I really do. The past year has been one of the most memorable times of my life. The people I've met here will probably continue to affect me in one way or another for the rest of my life. These are good people; people I'd like to stay friends with for a long, long time. So many memories, so many memories. I'm going to miss this view, this window, this room, this floor and all the people I've met through it. I hope to god that these people will continue to be in my life as the years go by. I'm going to miss waking up at 3pm, making fun of DC food, running up and down the stairs to see my girlfriend, going from room to room being bored out of my mind looking for something to do, the warm nights, walking barefoot across campus, being able to round up twelve people in an instant to do an activity, laughing at stupid videos on youtube, having my room invaded and packed to the brim with friends, and countless other things. Although life will go on and I will go on to meet new people and experience new things, this year will stay with me for as long as I live. I am thankful beyond measure to have had the fortune of being placed amongst such good people. This is what memories are made from, this is life.

Thanks John.

To everyone I’ve met this year: good luck on the road ahead and may you be safe until we meet again.
