In grade school, I never really understood fractions, or how to convert mixed numbers [which are the biggest waste of life]. Struggling with the most basic of math problems, I chose instead to focus my time and energy on writing [that seems to have paid off]. Well here’s a fraction problem that 10 times out of 9 I’ll get right: I am 1/4 done with my time at Holy Cross. Take that Mrs. Dulong.
Being the youngest in my family, I have seen multiple people venture off to college. Just like little Ginny Weasley, I was left on the muggle side of Platform 9 3/4 [damn you mixed numbers]. Well eventually my time came, and let me tell you, Holy Cross is and was everything I had ever hoped it would be. It took me a while, but I eventually found my place on Mt. Saint James. Like everything in life, moving away to college is a series of hills and valleys. Trust me, there will be valleys but the key is to keep your head up and always look forward to the next hill.
For anyone reading this who is eagerly anticipating moving in this August at either Mulledy, Hanselman, or Wheeler, I just want to say good luck and don’t hesitate to come say hello [I'll be RAing in Wheeler 2].
This has been a great year, and I can’t wait for the next 3/4 of my time at Holy Cross!
