Farewell to the 2014-2015 Year

by Peter B.

Dear OES,

There have been some great times this year. The ShinDig was a huge success. It was a mess, but it was one of the best messes I’ve been a part of in a while. Liam W. ‘15 put on an out-of-this-world egg toss, we had Bradley C. ‘15 playing some music, and we had a water fight courtesy of Graham O. ‘18. The yearbook staff also gave out yearbooks. These yearbooks were a very high quality.

Because I’m a freshman, nobody reads my articles, but I had a great time in the Dig. I was able to release my inner writing self every 2 ½ weeks. I could have posted more articles, but procrastination usually got the better of me. I also met the best friend I’ve ever had in my entire life, Abe A. ‘16. Abe and I have always been close. When I was not fulfilling my quota, Abe helped me finish by aggressively motivating me to get my job done. I don’t think he prefers our close friendship, but a friendship is the only boat that never sinks (although ours is pretty close).

Lastly, I would like to thank the OES community. This year was my first year at OES, and it has been one of the best academic years I have ever had. I will remember this year for the rest of my life, and I thank all of you for making this year so memorable.
