Columnist thanks readers for support

Julia DeCook


This semester is ending with a bang — or at least a few knocked over trees.

With the storms this weekend comes the light at the end of the tunnel — for many of my friends, that means a graduation, or in my case and many others, preparations for graduation.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who read my article and enjoyed it, you helped keep me going through my weird bouts of writer’s block.

And those of you who found my article offensive and awful…well, I don’t see you putting your soul on a piece of paper for all the world to see. So I don’t really care.

I’ve discovered a lot about myself and how I perceive the world to be by writing this column. I’ve come to grips about who I am and who I want to become.

If you ask me what that is exactly, I can’t tell you in simple terms. Just know that it’s been thoroughly more organized in the chaotic depths of my mind.

This column would have been a much more thought out and sincere “so long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good night” to all of my faithful readers, but watching YouTube videos of Disney songs just seemed so much more appealing.

And with that I leave you with a piece of advice: being a creative mind is a challenging, frustrating, engaging and wonderful thing. Embrace it. Be it. Be who you want to be and not what others expect.

Add in a sprinkle of “bleeding heart syndrome” and you have a formula for me.
