Spring Break Forever

Dear Thrill Readers,

It’s Spring Break y’all, it’s the American Dream. We are taking a pause and will resume posting when classes are back in session. So get your sunscreen and lay out by the pool, or just hole up for two weeks to watch the new season of House of Cards, and we will welcome you back when break is over.

Dear Class of 2021

 

Dear Incoming Member of the Class of 2021,

You will not meet me your Orientation week. I won’t hold open the doors of the library for you. I will not be at your first a capella concert.

You start your trip to another planet in your last class on Friday. You’re in an intro class your last semester because you totally live on the edge, and you sit in the back with your laptop open as you let the underclassmen battle to the death to argue the exact same answer to a question your professor asked. You roll your eyes and look over to your senior housemate and she is holding up paper saying “COMPS” with a drawing of a pencil on it. You get a little jitter in your stomach. This is real life y’all, this is the senior EXERCISE you’ve got eleven pages finished and you’ve still got sixty-nine to go! Class ends and you go up to your senior friend. You each give a nod. Spring Break has begun.
