As the semester quickly comes to an end, I want to share a few final thoughts as I end my journey at The Globe.
For the past year, The Globe has been my second home and my second family. In reality, I probably have spent more time with my fellow students than with my actual family, and I’m going to miss them more than I ever realized.
Because of my time with these people who I’ve grown to love, I realized that I may have taken my duration spent at The Globe and at Salt Lake Community College for granted.
Many students come here looking for a cheap way to get school over with, or have decided to come back after a long hiatus. Whatever your reason, SLCC has a magic that I can’t quite explain.
SLCC is a great place to further your education. There are many opportunities that arise so please take advantage of everything it has to offer. I promise, you won’t regret it.
I want to end with a few farewells.
I’ll miss you most fishbowl newsroom. You were my second home and were always there for me. You provided absolutely no privacy, but I always felt so safe.
I’ll miss you Brittni, my amazing assignment editor. Without you, I would have been lost and at risk of failing very early on. You kept track of everything I would forget and did a VERY good job of reminding me. You dealt with my bullshit far better then anyone else. For that, I’m eternally grateful.
Matt and Alison, thank you for the opportunity to lead this amazing group. Sorry for all the crap, I’m sure I made life hell for you at times.
Finally, thank you to all the other staff members who did their part and made The Globe a success.
Marc and Jake, thanks for being there when it really counted. Lacee, the best layout designer in the world, thank you for taking the huge stress of layout off my shoulders.
To all the writers and photographers who make the paper what it is — thank you for your hard work. Without you there would be nothing and I wouldn’t have had this job.
I don’t quite know how to end this letter, so I’ll leave you with this quote from the internet that I’m pretty sure sums up what my staff thinks of me:
“I’d say it won’t be the same without you, but actually, It’ll be better.”
