In the Douglas Adams “trilogy” The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the dolphins of the world, aware of the coming destruction of earth, pack up their things and move to another dimension. In a sense that’s pretty much what it feels like I am doing now. Coming to the end of my time at PDBY, and at university, leaves a massive hole to be filled. The thought of moving towards that hole terrifies me, excites me, and makes me all stressy-depressy. It’s a time that every student must face at some point as they move on from the training wheels of student life to a life of some serious adulting.
About my time at Perdeby, and more recently at PDBY, I say “So long, and thanks for all the fish.” My fondest memories of my time at university are in the PDBY office working on an exciting edition for you guys to read. I have had so many experiences that I would never have dreamed of if it wasn’t for my time at the newspaper, and I have learned almost more at PDBY than in my studies. Even some of the hardest parts of the job have taught me things about myself and others that I will use for years.
To all those that I have encountered along my journey, thank you for being part of it – especially my haters. You guys suck, but you taught me more than my fans. Thank you to those that have kept up with my editorials and supported me and PDBY along the way. Continue to read and keep up with our progress. I know that the coming editorial is going to bring with it something brand new, with an energy that can only be matched by a new bunch of minds, ideas, and oomph.
As a parting word, I would like to share some advice I like to think about from the great Guru Pitka, author of books such as Stop hitting yourself. Stop hitting yourself. Why are you still hitting yourself?, If you’re happy and you know it think again, Does it hurt when you do that? Don’t do that, and I know you are, but what am I — “Tonight I want you to go from nowhere to NOW HERE.™” In other words, just go wild.
