A year later, and here we are, finishing the school year off and continuing on with our lives. Finals are finishing up, and we are tying all of the loose ends of our assignments up and getting them all turned it. Some of us will be back next year, and some of us won’t be. We all have memories we will never forget, people we will never let go of, experiences we will never get the chance to be a part of again, and it all plays into our life we have encountered here at MNU.
As the hallways clear out, as the people pack their things, and as all of my friends drive away, it’s kind of sad. I think of the times I spent with people studying, messing around in the dorm late at night, going on midnight Taco Bell runs, and just living a college life, and it is pretty upsetting. Summer is here and all of that is gone. A new path is unfolding and I’m still caught up on the last one. I’m still wishing I didn’t have to leave even though I am excited that I am DONE with homework! I will have no more of that! No more ridiculous papers, no more 2 hour tests, or 4 hour study sessions! I…get…to..SLEEP! But no matter how excited I am about less work, I will still miss this life more.
But, despite the constant weight of the end of the school year, even though summer is here, MNU isn’t going anywhere! The home of the Pioneers will be right here where we left it. So I’m gonna keep my head up, keep my hopes high, and await the storm (by storm I mean summer )!! So get ready MNU! Cause I’m not done with you just yet! I still have 3 more years of this place; 3 more years of memories, 3 more years of people, and 3 more years of experiences; 3 more years of studying and 3 more years homework for hours on end ; 3 more years of the college life and 3 more years sleepless nights. I still have 3 more years of living life as a Pioneer!
3 more years!!
So here we are, saying goodbye to freshman year! And hello to the rest of our lives!
