I remember my first day at Suffolk. I was nervous, I was also excited, I also felt a little like I might throw up. I told myself if I made it through the day, I would reward myself with Starbucks. So I guess that part hasn’t changed all that much.
I remember sophomore year and struggling to get through Production I. It was so hard for me. I remember how that was the first year I commuted to school and how tired I was at the end of every day.
Now here I am commuting for the third year in a row like a pro. I’m so used to this by now the conductors worry about me when I’m not there.
And yes, there are plenty of days when I really don’t feel like going, but I do, because it’s important and it’s worthwhile, and it’s a once in a lifetime experience.
I remember junior year and feeling like such a cool person because I had my first ever internship. I was like, Wow, I’m really growing up, this is huge. I remember getting close with the seniors at the time, and now here I am a senior, and they are gone.
Now, I’m a senior, and I am still rewarding myself with Starbucks after a long day, I’m still driving my car with Nathan in the backseat, and I’m still obsessed with One Tree Hill (Convention 2018 here I come) I’m still reading my romance novels on the train, and I’m still loving Suffolk, I don’t think that will ever change.
I was so excited for this year, I thought about it all summer, I told myself I would make this year the best one yet, work hard, but also, if I want to go out of Friday, Hell, I’m going out. It’s just so wild to me that on May 19th, 2019, I will be graduating, and I will have no clue what to do next, but let me tell you, if there is one thing that Suffolk has prepared me for, it’s to be excited for all the possibilities.
So, to all my seniors, let’s work hard, let’s study, let’s do what we are supposed to do, but also, let’s not forget that this is the last year we will get to be students here, and let’s enjoy the ride.
