The only problem I have encountered while writing this column is writing it Sunday for a paper that is published on Wednesday.
That leaves anything to happen Monday or Tuesday that cannot be fixed. I feel as though I’ve been quite lucky with these two days going as planned, except for last week of course.
Due to inclement weather, Mondays Bodley Bash got postponed until Thursday. The Bash was just as fun, however, with “Pitch Please” taking home the championship in the kickball tournament.
Last Friday’s senior dinner dance was a blast and a great final hoorah for the seniors. The River Vista, which many people had not seen the inside of before, was beautiful both inside and out.
Once a few table were moved back, everyone met on the dance floor. Danielle Gillett and Eric Naioti were the winners of the dance competition and multiple people were winners of random prizes called throughout the evening.
Thank you to Mrs. Windsor and the senior class officers on making it a great night.
I would like to extend a few thank you’s myself. First, thank you to Katelyn Holbrook who recommending me to write the column this year. Also to The Valley News for letting me write the article at all.
Thank you to all of my friends that I bothered for information and quotes throughout the year.
Finally, thank you to all of you. Whether this is the first, second or 35th article of mine, you have read, thank you.
To hear how many people have enjoyed reading what I have written is a blessing. I apologize for any grammatical or factual information I have messed up! I am only human and we all make mistakes.
For me, next year I will be heading to Ithaca College. I will be majoring in health sciences, on the path to become a physician’s assistant someday. I will also be playing lacrosse for the Bombers.
A note to the underclassmen and anyone wishing they would just grow up already, “You’re gonna miss this. You’re gonna want this back. You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast. These are some good times, so take a good look around. You may not know it now, but you’re gonna miss this.” — Trace Adkins
To my fellow seniors, we did it. We’ve made it through the ups and downs of the last 13 years of schooling and a whole new chapter of our lives is beginning.
I know I will see many of you again, but to those I won’t, good luck!
I’ll see you all Saturday the 23rd at the Fulton ice rink for one last time together.
Finally, “Never say goodbye, because goodbye means going away, and going away means forgetting.” — Peter Pan
So see you later Class of 2012; it’s been a blast.
