Thank you to Fast Fitness for forcing me to work out at least once every couple of weeks. Without you, my beer calories would be sitting even further around my hips.
Thank you, to Baldy’s for allowing me to compare your food to that in the rest of the world and therefore appreciate what else the world has to offer that much more.
Thank you, to the wheat fields that surround Cheney, for without you, I would not be reminded that we are in the smallest of college towns with the most limited of things to do, and for reminding me that it is you that creates the ever endless supply of beer which we college students regularly consume.
Thank you, to The Easterner for teaching me how to write things that amuse our readers, well let’s face it, probably just me, and for letting me find the variegated grammatical errors in the paper that therefore allows me to feel smart for knowing trivial information, which cannot actually be compared to the inspiring things that the rest of you know and create.
Thank you to those of you that have allowed your stupidity-filled antics to make their ways into the Police Beat and thus have entertained me for weeks on end.
Thank you, to the CEDP department for giving me so many chances and for teaching me how to listen to people and understand the eccentricities that create my wonderfully psychologically strange group of friends.
Thank you, to my friends for giving me such tremendously enjoyable and yet often drama-filled memories. Sarai, I will always remember the nights we stayed up drinking and coloring until 6 a.m. Sophie, I will always remember drinking wine in the library with you. Meaghan, I will always remember driving you to the airport and almost killing you at 4 a.m. Callie, I will always remember our crazy-fun trip to Montana. Krissy, I will always remember your many ways to convince me to come out and to then dance with you. Curtis, I will always remember your insane love for Chuck Norris and that delicious Mexican liquor made of agave. Easterner staff, I will always remember shouting praises to Eastern’s basketball team while roaming the streets of Hollywood.
So, thank you to all the aspects of EWU that made my four years here delightfully entertaining, socially and academically enlightening and at times made my academic career seem as though it would drag on for eternity. I will miss you-Sorta.
