Bodley Bulletins: Saying goodbye

By Julia Ludington

It seems hard to believe, but this will be my last ever Bodley Bulletin.

Senior year has been one of the best years of my life. There have been countless laughs, numerous special events, and many memories made. 

This year was the academic period in which I finally saw my hard work paying off with acceptances into college, scholarships, and other accomplishments.

I have never felt so conflicted emotionally in my life. On one hand, I am anxiously awaiting my new life at college, and some days I feel like I could leave right then and there and be perfectly fine.

Others, I wish that I was back in sixth grade, getting excited about entering the Junior High.

It was hard to listen to others when they told me to enjoy every moment of my senior year — especially in the more stressful times.

When applying to college, all I wanted was for it to be over and done with. As the end of the year fast approaches, I have to remind myself to live every moment to its fullest.

To upcoming seniors, I will give you the same advice that I was given a million times before — enjoy it. Do everything that you can to cherish your home and school, because it will be the last time. It may not seem like it now, but you will miss it!

College is a whole new chapter in my life, but I am ready to take it on. I am extremely excited to pursue my passion for reading and writing as an English major at Villanova University this fall.

I hope to become a writer for a political publication, or maybe even a lawyer. I am eager to attend Nova vs. Cuse sports games, where I will be cheering on the Wildcats but will secretly be wearing orange socks.

I have really enjoyed my time as the 2013-2014 Bodley Bulletins correspondent, and I can’t thank my community enough for the support and kind comments that I received. You have built my confidence as a writer in a way that I never could have hoped for!

I hope that everyone enjoys their summer, and congratulations to the Class of 2014!
