“So long farewell, Auf Weidersehen, good night.
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight…”
That’s exactly how I feel when thinking of parting ways with West Plains. This is a weird feeling knowing I won’t be coming back in the fall after five years of doing this thang.
To anyone debating on whether to go here, I dare you. Come, but remember that you’ll get out of this institution what you put into it. This college isn’t here to baby you, but rather to challenge you, and hopefully shape your mind into something more beautiful than when you came.
Especially remember that life does not owe us anything, so work hard for everything you do. See, everyone runs the race, but only one wins the prize. Only one wins the reward, the trophy, the ultimate mark of victory, so if the prize comes easy, the race isn’t worth the energy.
I have such a peace knowing the last five years of my race have been worth every second.
Now, I bid this lovely campus, which has harbored half a decade’s worth of my life, farewell. I hope I’ve inspired a soul or two into achieving something greater than what was thought possible before, and no worries, I’ll be back in due time, hopefully with great wisdom, cool stories and a tan.
Considere por sumo gozo, hermanos míos, cuando os halléis en diversas pruebas, sabiendo que la prueba de vuestra fe produce resistencia.
