To All The Seniors

To All The Seniors

I'll miss you guys.


Thank you.

Thank you for showing me the ropes of college. What to do, what not to do. The best places to go, what classes to take, and who to steer clear of. From ordering late night food, finding all the best parties, taking tons of pictures, and supporting our school's sporting events, we've had a blast.

Forming intramural teams, studying for exams, cheering each other on for interviews, or just talking all night, you guys have been there from the start. Already knowing what to do, you passed your knowledge along, unknowingly, to us.

You've always been real with me. You've told me the truth about everything -- who is only in it for the hookup, which professor will treat you fairly, and the secrets of our campus. Having already done freshman year, you were all pros at college by the time we got there, and your advice is what got us through. Knowing that you made it, all the way to graduation, tells me that someday, I'll be there too.

I can't tell you enough how thankful I am for you, or how school won't be the same without you here. The countless laughs and memories that we have shared have formed a bond that will last long past college, and I hope to have the same impact, that you had on me, with new friends.

People will look up to us the way we've looked up to you, and I hope that we do as good of a job as you all have. This little college has allowed me to make friendships that will last forever, with people I never imagined I would have the opportunity to meet.

The world needs people like you -- kind, smart, open-hearted -- to keep going, and I know that whatever you choose to do, it will suit you in the best ways. You will change people's lives, like you have changed mine, and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for you after this May.

I appreciate you so much more than you know, and I will miss you next year.

Love you guys always, and thank you.

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

The killing of an innocent Black man will be reinvestigated, and that news that brought me to tears.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
