Firstly, Congratulations to the Class of 2010! I can’t believe that the sophomores I met during my freshman year will be absent when I return to Holy Cross in August. It seems quite surreal. Thank you to all of you who were always there for me, whether your role was a fantastic friend or a great life advisor. I will miss you all terribly, but I hope that all of your future endeavors will be just as fruitful as your four years at Holy Cross.
Now that I’m technically a Senior (technically, even though I’m still in school at Oxford), I took some time to plan for the upcoming academic year. Hoooo. Wow. This is going to be a fun year, and I mean that both genuinely and sarcastically. I am genuinely excited for my classes (Shakespeare, Contemporary Christology with Fr. Brooks [!!!], Apocalypticism Through The Ages, Research Methods for EHP, and my Thesis), and I’m also looking forward to my extracurricular activities and clubs. I just have a lot of external factors this year, like graduate school applications and scholarship applications that are going to require a lot of time and effort; some even require weekends away from Holy Cross for interviews. It’s going to be hectic, but I am looking forward to it. Yes, yes. I did just imply that I am looking forward to ending my year in Oxford. Of course, I’m not ending my Oxford/European adventure until the beginning of August! So, although it is going to be a tough year ahead, I am looking forward to it.
