What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay. Sorry awesome people who read this blog that I’ve been absent, as it has been in the midst of finals. This fine evening, I have been thinking about how great my time here at St. Mary’s has been, encouraging everyone to finish strong, and comparing this to my high school graduation. This semester, I have been soaring through and kicking butt in my classes. A lot of people ask me, “Hey Peekay you are a senior and why are you still living large with all that shit you have to do?” Well I’m glad you asked. I live the way I do, because I start early, make time for what’s important, and allow myself time to let loose on the weekends! Also, I balance between hard classes and fascinating classes. That way, I have time to work and let loose with my friends. Some fun moments this semester were learning about interest rates, stock markets in Money and Banking, also learning about individual and business decisions impact the economy in Microeconomics, getting a stronger hold on Analysis, talking to Rob, my old summer school teacher who helped me turn to positives, walking around DC and Baltimore, chilling with my friends around the Greens, Crescents, LQ and WC either karoking, playing Smash, or talking about the meaning of life. Especially loud shout out to Ben, Jake, Hannah, Sophie at LQ 4, Abby, Mckenzie, Brady, Meg, and Erika at LQ 21. I have a better idea now, but that is still up for debate. Thank you Frederick, Patrick, Elijah, and everyone in WC 60 for allowing me to crash at your suite, it gave me the opportunity to relieve my stress after a busy week, clear my mind, and continue to charge through this awesome semester.
This time also brings me back to my final days back at Richard Montgomery. I was nervous back then about college. Now, I am breaking out, becoming my true self, and finding my calling. Comparing myself to the teenager back then, I really see how much I have grown. My writing skills have grown considerably, my confidence has been boosted, I emerged from my comfort zone, I have expanded my horizons, discovered new interests, met new people, really expanded my friendship circle to include some awesome people, SHOUT OUT TO EVERYONE HERE AT ST. MARY’S. YOU ROCK!!! To my high school friends who I drifted apart from, I still think of you positively, wish you the best, and I’m still rooting for you to chase your dreams wherever you are. If we cross paths in the future, I want to hear your dreams and talk to you about how life has been. If you don’t have time nor want to, I understand and I’m sorry we drifted apart. But if you ever need a friend, I’m here for you. Also shout out to my high school teachers who I still keep in contact with. Shout out to Laura, Jon, Leslie, Doug, John, Chaney Jo, Amy Jo Weaver, Terri Jo, and Chamy from RM. Sorry, I haven’t come by, but don’t you worry, I will come back before long. Also shout out to everyone from Julius West who helped me become positive, after Rob helped me Summer 2005. I will never forget you guys and I hope to see you soon.
Shout out to the whole Class of 2016 and everyone graduating this spring. Let’s end strong and enjoy every moment!!! Good luck and let’s better this world.
