Kristian Cross- Well. It really did have to start with that. I met you through friends two years ago. We weren’t really that close. In fact, we became better friends once you left which is kind of sad if you think about it. I am so thankful you came back this year. You have become one of my closest friends. Best friend really. I missed having a friend to call that. Your friendship keeps me well grounded and I can’t thank you enough for that. It’s going to be extremely weird not seeing you everyday. I can’t even began to write how much I am going to miss you. You are one of the strongest people I’ve ever met. This is one of the things I admire most about you. Don’t ever lose that. Don’t let anyone take that from you. This was probably the scariest, hardest, and craziest year of my college career and I don’t think I would have gotten through it without you. You are going to do some great things and can’t wait to see.
I know I have left people out but please know that I didn’t do it out of hate. I promise! This is already 1400 words! To all my friends that I have made here, please know that even though I’m not here anymore I’m just a call away. I will be here for anyone who needs me. Please remember that.
This has been a wonderful experience in my life. I have learned so much from this newspaper and this university. I know that with what I have learned I am ready to make this next step. Thank you. Thank you all.
