The time has finally come. It’s the end of my first year at MSA. It’s been a while ride, a mishmash of triumphs and failures. I’ve grown as a person and an artist. Through it all, I’ve made friends, I’ve lost friends, I’ve made enemies, I’ve lost enemies (I think?).
So, what’s the point of it? Is that it? Will any of this matter at all once I graduate next year?
Yes. I’m sure it will. I think that this has been an experience that will impact me for the rest of my life. I’m grateful to all of my teachers, and all of the friends that I’ve made this year. I couldn’t- wouldn’t be here now without all of them. There’s no doubt that this has changed my life tremendously. It definitely could’ve been a better year, but there’s very little I would have changed about it.
I’m glad that I met everyone that I did, and I’m glad to have been a junior literary this year. I would also like to give special thanks to all of the literary seniors for being such a gift to the literary world. They are truly some of the best role models I could have had. I hope that they find success and happiness wherever they go.
Thank you all for the phenomenal year. See you next year!
