For the last few weeks it has become more and more obvious that the year is about to end. Yesterday, while working at the bookstore, at least a hundred seniors came to pick up their cap and gowns. And I was completing all of their transactions, it was clear who was excited about the year coming to an end and who wasn’t. As a junior it was really enlightening talking to all of those who were sad to leave F&M. I personally can’t wait to leave this school and get started with the next phase of my life. But hearing about all of the good experiences they had here made me think that I should take a step back and appreciate the position I am in while I still can. I plan to use my last year at F&M to study exactly what I want to study, hang out with the people I enjoy the most, and participate
in the events and activities that would be the best for me.
On this new Facebook page called “F&M Confessions,” kids from F&M basically complain anonymously about their situations and tell everyone what they think about F&M. I want to take a second to tell all of them, and anyone else reading, this that just because you’re not where you want to be, or have something you don’t like about this place, you should make your experiences at F&M what you want them to be. Make a change. And please, for everyone else sake, stop complaining.
