Final Thoughts on UGST

Now that the semester is coming to a close, it’s time for us all to take a moment to reflect. It’s not hard for me to remember. I remember our first day like it was yesterday. I remember wandering aimlessly around campus, trying to find the fastest routes between classes. I remember walking into my dorm room for the first time. I remember the first time I went to Kerr at 2 A.M. But most importantly, I remember the first time I ever walked into my freshman seminar class. Little did I know this rag tag group of kids would not only become my friends, but that they’d become my second family.

Ivan? Man, what can I say about Ivan. That crazy kid was always BEGGING me to play Magic: The Gathering with him. I just never had the heart to tell him no. And Amber and DJ, my RoadTripNation group. I don’t think I could have asked for a better pair of sidekicks. Sometimes I made them call me Batman, just so they knew who was in charge. But even throughout all of that, I never lost sight of what was really important.

I guess you could say I’m somewhat of a success story. Most kids come on campus and lost sight of themselves. They forget who they are. Not me, no. I had the help of Ms. Pasquini, Erin, Adriene, and 20-something kids who believed in me. So in conclusion, I guess I really I have only one thing left to say…

I… I love… ugh, I promised myself I wouldn’t cry… and it’s just… I’ve always been sort of a hard ass about this kind of thing and I just… I just can’t…

Godspeed, UGST class.
