I’m one of those people.
Before I leave, I must bid farewell to a place I will always consider “home” and the family I made while I was here.
To my journalism professors: Thank you for your wisdom and thinking my writing is decent. (A special thanks to those who let me cry in their office when the pressure was on.)
To my Plainsman family: I do not want to leave (and let’s face it, you don’t want me too, either)!
Kristi, I know it wasn’t always the best job to lead us all, but you did.
I wish we had met 14 years ago.
Natalie W., we knew each other before The Plainsman, and we’ll continue this crazy friendship long after we both leave.
I kind of love you.
Baby Helen, I expect Intrigue to be nothing less than awesome.
You ARE my favorite, but don’t tell the others!
Alex! Good luck on getting one of those job thingmajigs. And always keep it hood.
Lindsey, please work on your driving skills.
Oh, and have a blast running this thing next year.
To “the boys:” Keep dressing in matching outfits.
We all love it.
Wes, thank you for writing that letter of recommendation for my summer internship ... and for that ride home when Wadenat was being uncooperative — really.
But I’m still not changing the date of my wedding just because that also happens to be your 50th birthday.
Mallory, we are all MAJOR jealous of your internship at Seventeen, but we know you deserve it and will do a better job than any of us could.
Elli, I will ALWAYS keep a backpack between us.
To everyone else in The Plainsman family, I wish you all the best. I’ve worked with all of you, so I know the talent is there.
I do not know what lies ahead of me after I receive that diploma in August.
I know the job market is not so rosy, but I do know how to be a journalist.
Auburn gave me those tools, and I know how to use them.
To say I never have to go to class again is surreal.
I know it’s true, but I do not believe it. (I mean, I’ve been going to class since I was five.)
And, to be honest, I’m not sure I’m 100 percent happy about it.
I love Auburn — we make a great team.
You can take the girl out of Auburn (except during football season), but you definitely can’t take Auburn out of the girl.
Don’t worry, Auburn.
This is not goodbye, it’s just see you later.
War Damn Eagle.
