And the countdown begins...Posted Tuesday, May 10, 2011, at 11:48 AM
With 16 days until I walk across the stage, I can't help but feel extremely nervous. I'll be heading off to Oklahoma in July for college, and shortly after my parents pitch me out of the truck/nest, they'll be taking off to Japan.
I just wanted to say thank you to all of you on the blogs for giving me some interesting debate online- I don't plan on debating in college so I'll probably stick around to banter with you all and give you some insight into what's going on in the south.
I retired my policy debate captainship last Wednesday and took home both policy debater and congressional debater of the year awards. What an emotional night it was; being a four-year member of the team comes with a lot of attatchment to the teammates (needless to say, teary ole me did cry a bit). I'm very happy that I'll have to miss the Spaghetti Feed tomorrow night because of rehearsal (Please go, we're so close to our fundrasing goal. It's only $5 for all-you-can-eat spaghetti) because I know that would have turned into another emotional night and with graduation so close I can't really take more than I am getting already.
We received some fortunate news last Tuesday in the journalism room- our program is safe for at least the next two years (for details on the programs getting cut, check out the online reader at tigertribune.org, page 2). I breathed a sigh of relief seeing that e-mail- I really love newspaper and without the program I may have never realized that.
I shouldn't ramble much further- I'm getting really sentimental and I'm not sure where to go with this anymore. I hope you all come by the spaghetti feed and get a couple plates (you can get tickets at the door as well) or bid on some silent auction items, or even buy a couple 50/50 raffle tickets. Last year's winner got a couple hundred dollars.
Mr. Bradbury, I know you'll probably read this- if you're intersted in the feed or 50-50 let me know and I'll stop by.
